Promptly picked up at our hotel on schedule and stayed on schedule for 12+ hours. Anthony, our driver and tour narrator, was 5 🌟 exceptional. He was kind and friendly to everyone (24 people on our tour), easy to hear and understand, very knowledgeable, and upbeat about Vancouver and Victoria. The BC Ferry system is clean, interesting, and runs like clockwork. Butchart Gardens is beautiful and well worth the trip, possibly the nicest gardens we've seen. We also enjoyed Victoria walking and dining at the Inner Harbor, seeing the Parliament Building, and the famous and impressive Empress Hotel. A long day for sure, but an excellent value and experience for the money, and we highly recommend it.
