Chaotic Tour Operator spoilt a wonderful experience
Moira_B
, Jul 2022
An amazing experience but spoilt by the lack of information from the Tour Operator. We are flying back by sea plane but absolutely no information given as to flight time. We had to find out from Harbour Sea Planes which flight we were booked on. Also no voucher readily available for taxi transfers to the hotel. All in all chaotic.

Liked the ferry ride from Vancouver to Victoria. The Butchart gardens were beautiful. We were at the gardens for 2 hours, wish we had an hour more. Enjoyed walking around downtown Victoria and the harbor. The Inn at Laurel Point was very nice.

We thoroughly enjoyed our trip. From the commentary as we made our way from our pickup to the ferry. The gardens were superb and the Laurel Inn met our expectations ith clean and tidy facilities, very helpful staff and a brilliant view from our room. we were a littlle apprehensive about the float plane flight back, but it,also, was thrilling. The only disappointment was that as we were in Vancouver and paid in Canadian dollars with our cash currency card, we found later when the card ran out of money, that the amount quoted in Canadian dollars was converted to U.S dollars, so cost us more and depleted the card sooner than it should have. Please be aware of this.

Enjoyable 2 day tour. Most of the people on the your opted for a day trip and I was the only one staying overnight. The float plane return was really good. Tour guide on the first day was really good. I was on my own the second day.

The two-day Victoria trip was very enjoyable. There wasn't much guided tour in this package as the tour guide is basically the driver driving us to the pier for the bus to get on the ferry to Victoria. Then he drove us to Butchart Garden where we could just tour around the place ourselves. We were then dropped off at our hotel for checking in and the rest of the first day and the next day were all our free times. The hotel chosen for us is very good, very good service and the room is very nice. The airplane experience was fantastic. The tour was very costy but worth to do it.

The gardens were amazing. We definitely recommend the overnight tour. 2 hours in Victoria is not enough time and it's a long ride back to Vancouver via the shuttle. We enjoyed the float plane ride back, so much to see.

This trip was wonderful! The tour guides were friendly, informative and on time. Everything went smoothly and as advertised, just as in past Viator tours we've taken. The hotel we stayed at was beautiful and the city was easily accessible by walking. We could have stayed at the Empress but chose the Inn at Laurel Point and were very happy with the choice. We would highly recommend it.

Although I enjoyed the trip, there were significant issues that made me feel that this trip was not worth the significant expense... On the positive...the trip was fairly well organized and as advertised. Down sides...van picking us up at the hotel was 30 minutes late. The driver was curt and unfriendly. He took us to our tour guide who was friendly but who clearly was not a native English speaker. He was not aware or familiar with the fact that we were spending the night... most of the guests were doing the day trip. Eventually, he figured it out and got our vouchers. The hotel was sub standard. After three room switches and numerous phone calls, it became clear that the hotel had an upgraded wing... We decided to pay extra for this... It would have been helpful had we known. The difference was huge. Almost as though they were two separate hotels. The staff at the hotel were friendly and helpful. The restaurant was excellent for breakfast, although not inexpensive . Lastly, when we showed up for our float plane,there was fog and planes were being cancelled. I had triple checked on this prior to booking and during the trip as we needed to catch our cross country flight home. I had been told that there was no problem and no need for concern. This was not the case... When I called the vendor to report that the flight plane might be cancelled, I was told that this was not their problem. Luckily, the flight did take off and we got home to the east coast. When I return to Victoria, I will not take this tour.

VIATOR says: Hotel pick-up and drop-off. There was no drop-off for us. There was nobody waiting for us at the plane terminal, there was no shuttle. We really feel very unsatisfied because of this. And there are more people who have had the same problem.

This was a great tour, starting with afriendly, informative tour guide, Mike. He guided us from the ferry to Buchart Gardens in the sunshine, and dropped us at our comfortable hotel. We had time during the next day to look round Victoria and themagnificent BC Museum before an unforgettable float plane ride back to Vancouver. Everything had gone smoothly until then, but we were then met by the shuttle who refused to take us back to our hotel, and rather than be abandoned in an underground carpark, we had to agree to be dropped at the taxi rank. What a pity tnat the final stage should be so disappointing.

Absolutely spectacular. The one day tour could not possibly be enough to see all Victoria has to offer. A lovely drive to catch the ferry to Vancouver Island. Mike, our guide, was brilliant giving us non stop information and history of the area without ever sounding dry or tedious! Saw seals and a whale from the ferry. We had a good 2hrs at Butchart Gardens then on to Victoria. Accommodation at Laurel Point was centrally located and comfortable. Flew out of Victoria Harbour at 6pm next day on a twin engine float plane. Smooth flight. Highly recommended!

We loved this tour. It would have been nice to have 3 hours in the Butchart Gardens rather than only two as one of us has hip/knee problems and walks rather slow. But the Gardens were so beautiful. The drive around Victoria with the tour guide giving history was great. We learned a lot. The Inn at Laurel Point has a lovely view, and is a lovely place. The staff are so friendly and helpful. We were glad we stayed overnight because next day we had a horse and carriage ride, we walked through Chinatown, and we went through the Robert Bateman Museum which is a must see if you like wildlife. We were booked to take the float plane back to Vancouver, and somehow our driver forgot to pick us up at the Inn. But Haydee got on the phone, and within 30 minutes everything was straightened out; a cab picked us up, and free of charge took us to the place where the float planes leave, there we were already booked on the next flight and everyone was so cheerful and helpful about getting us on this floatplane. We loved the flight across; seeing where the people lived on the islands, and the trails going to their house, and their boats used for transportation. This is one awesome tour, and it was almost worth being forgotten just to find out how fast and seamlessly the problem can be sorted out. I already had a sincere apology on my iPad before I returned to my temporary home at White Rock. I would love to do this tour again.

Fabulous driver Andy, wonderful tour and destination. Only problem was that our hotel room booking was made for the incorrect night so we ended up in a crummy room (with no view as promised), lucky it was only for one night!

Everything went well. We enjoyed our trip. For me I knew the float plane would be a little scary. I would have liked the option of using the ferry back also. It was raining so the view was not as good as a sunny day would be. The hotel and restaurant were lovely. The walk way to downtown was great. The tour was a little pricey, but the convenience of having everything go well was worth it.
