I found this trip using links from my Marriott account, booking the 3-hour Private Guided Rainforest Hike. My adult daughter and I were picked up by Darwin in our hotel lobby (very convenient!). Darwin drove us "in style" and it was just the two of us with him filling us in on the "local scene:" history, topography, climate, people, culture, and wildlife. He has lived on Vancouver Island for many years and really knows it well. We were able to see three unique spots on the island - all within a very modest drive from downtown, Victoria. We saw waterfalls, beautiful coastal vistas, local flora and fauna, rainforest, and an astounding castle - Hatley Castle. It was an amazing 3 hours of fun and flew by!
We took seriously that we should be dressed for the weather and we did, though we never got the rain that had been predicted. A bonus! We were prepared. Darwin also took pictures of us on our cameras, another bonus!
I would highly recommend Darwin AND this particular trip, especially if you only have a day or two on the island - he was a terrific guide and we got to experience places we would not have found on our own. THANK YOU, DARWIN!
