Darwin was an incredible tour guide for the City of Victoria and Butchart Gardens. Due to the amount of time available for our ship in-port visit, we didn't have time for a full half-day, but Darwin packed the time available with so much that we now want to come back to see Victoria and the Butchart Gardens in more depth. He was so very friendly and helpful. He went above and beyond. You can't go wrong in booking with his company

This was our first time having a Private Tour of any location we’ve visited… and thanks to Darwin, my children and I got to experience Victoria in a spectacular way! From the introductory call we received to customize our itinerary the week before our tour right through to the very end of our exciting full-day tour adventure, Darwin created a highly memorable and enjoyable experience for all of us :) His detailed knowledge of the area coupled with his down-to-earth nature, sense of humour, and authentic passion for having his guests experience a joy-filled day is amazing. You definitely can’t go wrong booking Surfside Adventure Tours if you want to remember living a special time in Victoria!! Much appreciation to Darwin for a wonderful time that we won’t soon forget.

Thanks to Darwin, our shore time in Victoria was saved! We had a fantastic ride to the Gardens and Darwin provided excellent guidance on what to see, how to see it, and a great explanation of the history of the Butchart Gardens.. our Royal Princess cruise and passengers weren’t properly prepared to disembark and we were held up an hour! Darwin was patiently waiting when we disembarked and quickly hustled us to his beautiful van to beat the big bus travelers! His knowledge and love of the area was very evident as we traversed his town. Thank you for a wonderful afternoon!

What a great tour provided by Darwin! Picked up at the cruise port and escorted through the city before it awoke as once things opened up it would be crowded and inaccessible. Darwin had us at Butchart Gardens before all the big buses, and walked us in to give us pointers on the best way to tour around! Afterwards, we were treated to a additional city tour of some very interesting and historical sights, added bonuses were both of the areas castles! Highly recommend this tour and Darwin knows how to give the best experience!

Several friends and I were in Victoria, B.C. for only one day and wanted to see as much of the city as we could, including visiting the beautiful Butchart Gardens. Darwin picked us up at the cruise terminal and provided us with a vast amount of historical information throughout the tour. Additionally, he guided us to the most beautiful areas in the Butchart Gardens to make sure we didn't miss key photos. The tour was so awesome we extended it so Darwin could take us to see both the Hatley Castle at the Royal Roads University and the Craigdarroch Castle. I feel so fortunate that we arranged out tour with Darwin as we all had an A+ experience. I highly recommend Surfside Adventure Tours for those seeking a quality tour in Victoria.
