Victoria City Tour Excursion Reviews
Rented a private limo at the doc. Local gentleman who owned 3 limos. Ours was a classic Damler limo, and the driver was the owner. Out to Butchart Gardens for 1.5 hour tour...well worth it!!! Then a drive around town, our driver obviously loved his home, and it showed in the tour. Very personal, well done.
Choose a different company for a bus tour in Victoria. Buses were often late, and the bus drivers weren't very professional.
This could have been left off the cruise.
This tour was awful. After being mauled by the different tour companies as soon as we set foot on land and paying $10 per person just to take a bus into town, we opted for the Big Bus Tour. This is not a good option for anyone wanting to learn about the sites and have a chance to get off the bus. The staff (mostly the driver) was not helpful or audible most the trip. The lousy pre-recorded message was horrible and the driver never found a rhythm starting and stopping the awful recording as he actually passed the site. It was awful and recommend not using this company at all. In addition, downtown Victoria is pelted with bird droppings! One of my party, and another lady in another party, each were pooped on repeatedly standing on the sidewalk. As you realize, looking down, the sidewalks are streaked with droppings and the birds are never-ending overhead - WATCH OUT!!
Beautiful city. City shuttle is the bomb. Inexpensive with multiple drop off and pick up spots. Got off in the center of town and walked around (been to Butchart Gardens on a previous trip) Enough fun shops, restaurants and beautiful flower displays to please most. Ended up at the colorful marina. It was food truck night! Time is short, not only time wise but because so many shops close what I consider to be early.
