I wish I could give it more than 5 stars! This was so amazing! We were on a family vacation with our 12 and 14 year olds and thought this would be a fun way to see the island but I though twice at the thought of spending close to $400 total on a 30 minute experience. I’m so happy I decided to do it anyway, although the reviews were very positive, I truly didn’t expect it to be as great as it was. Everyone was so friendly and helpful from our check in at the little airport to the pilot (he totally made the flight and was SO nice to our kids). Seeing Victoria by air is an experience I will never forget.
Enjoyed the flight over. Very smooth flight. Awesome views from the sky. Great experience! Victoria was nice, but was disappointed that there wasn't more to see and do. In hindsight, we should have included Butchart Gardens in our excursion. The ferry ride back to Vancouver was nice. We did have a communication issue such that our flights were booked incorrectly, but Get Your Guide handled our complaint promptly and to our full satisfaction. I would recommend using them in the future.
This trip gives an opportunity to see a little more of the area around Vancouver. It gets you into the air with some great views both at take-off and on the return trip but you also get out to Vancouver Island with the stop at Victoria itself as well as the short bus ride out to Butchart Gardens. You can easily spend a very pleasant 2 hours there following the guide route. It's a brilliant day.
On time departure... great first time experience in Turbo Otter. We had a great flight and the beautiful scenery was even more amazing from the air! The Gardens were lovely with their fall color, and the entire experience was so well organized and planned. Graham, who drove the bus to Buchart gardens, shared details about the area from his experience growing up on the island.
It was a very enjoyable flight. It was only when we boarded the plane that we found out we could have bought headsets for an audible commentary or at least given a map to give us some idea of where we were flying over but none of these were offered to us at check in which would have made the flight even better .
