Full description
Enjoy a private 13-hour adventure from Vancouver to Victoria and stop at one of Canada’s most beautiful public gardens. Following your morning pick-up by limousine, you will enjoy priority boarding on the British Columbia ferry service across the Strait of Georgia. Cruise through the breathtaking Gulf Islands, passing so close you can almost touch the trees on the shore. See seals in the sea and bald eagles looping the sky above. Sometimes, you can even spot whales. Upon arrival at Vancouver Island, head to beautiful Butchart Gardens. As a private tour, you will only have to leave when you are ready. Highlights include the wooded bog garden and landscaped Japanese garden. You can also take a break to sip some tea in the beautifully manicured gardens. Continue to Victoria for a guided tour of the city's heritage buildings, such as the Empress Hotel and Beacon Hill Park. With echoes of the past, Victoria’s genteel atmosphere is a perfect respite from Vancouver, with quaint cafés on every corner. Enjoy free time to explore at leisure.

    Excellent private tour experience of the gardens and Victoria

    Guide showed up at pick-up hotel on-time, was very informative and courteous through-out the tour. Very accommodating of what we wanted to see and timing. Got us back to drop-off hotel on-time. It was a very good day.

    An ideal day trip to Vancouver Island

    The Chuck Scott trip to Vancouver Island was the ideal addition to our trip through the Rockies. Chuck is a friendly, reliable guide, with extensive knowledge and a good sense of humor. We enjoyed the day with him - the tour is highly recommended.
