So worth the time!
Our tour guide and driver, spoke clearly and was very informative, witty and entertaining. He was very professional, timely and had a lot of trivia for the tour group too. Glad to get the hotel pickup and drop-off It's a long tour and distance, even though time was spent on the minibus or the ferry while on this tour, you won’t get bored as you get a good look of the beautiful British Columbia.

Good value!
Picked up in Vancouver and had sufficient time to wander around Victoria and then went to Butchart Gardens. Our tour guidewas full of interesting information and super well organized. I really felt like I got a lot for my money, and the ease of not finding my own way around! So glad I decided to just do a Landsea tour to and from my hotel door!
Great, Even in the Rain
Our guide's expert driving and jokes kept us entertained for our > 12 hour tour to Vancouver Island and Victoria. Travel by bus and ferry to see Butchart Islands was great... even in the rain
Highly Recommend
We had a great day trip from downtown Vancouver to Victoria. The ferry ride over was beautiful. We had about 2 hours at the gardens and another 2 hours downtown Victoria. While it was a long day, about 12 hours from hotel pick-up and drop-off, it was time worth spent.
