    Byron was our guide. He was great because he gave us plenty of time to enjoy each stop. Also, not only was he friendly, but he was also very knowledgeable. It is the guide who can make or break a tour and Byron made my day

    I am afraid of heights but was able to enjoy myself here. I was very hesitant to visit because of my fears but I felt safe, though a little nervous when people would rock the bridge sideways. After my experience here I felt as though I had chipped away a bit at my fear.
    It was beautiful, especially enjoyed the tree top suspended pathway and the cliff walk.

    "The Butchart Gardens is a 119-year-old internationally-renowned 55-acre display garden located in Brentwood Bay, British Columbia. Created by Jennie Butchart, and still privately owned and operated by the family, The Gardens was designated a National Historic Site of Canada, in 2004 for its one hundredth birthday .These gardens are a must-visit! They are absolutely stunning in layout, variety, plant species and colour! There is a map with arrows indicating a suggested route, as well as a best route to avoid stairs. If time does not allow you to view all of the garden areas, make sure to see the Sunken Garden!
    Plants are unlabelled to keep the feel of a private garden, however, a detailed "Flower and Plant Guide" is provided, should you wish to identify popular flowers and plants. Wear walking shoes as the gardens are extensive, especially if you want to see them all, right across to Butchart Cove.
    There are a number of amenities available - toilets, coffee shop, Gelateria, Restaurants, visitor centre and gift store.

    Incredible trip from start to finish. Saw 2 pods together which is unusual.
    Plenty of room on the boat and the staff were very knowledgeable.
    Would recommend this trip

    Very well organised, professional and friendly. I felt safe and in good hands. Only 25 I think on our trip which meant great views all round at all times. Saw whales, orcas, seals, sea lions, a bald eagle and some amazing views of the surrounding sea and country. It was cold! I loaned some gloves - perfect.

    One slight issue - I hadn’t expected to walk 10 minutes to the boat from the office and I have a disability. This was painful to do and I was way behind the group. I wish I’d known as I would have asked how this could be accommodated. Soon forgotten though tbh.

    This was my second trip to Vancouver. I am trying to visit every Hockey Arena in North America. So Seattle and Vancouver was on this years list. Vncouver is a very nice city with an Internationl population. You will hear many languages and accents as you walk down Robson street.
    Capilano Suspension Bridge is a very nice plave to visit even in the rain.
    Granville Island offers lots of options for lunch and shopping. There are musicians who play for tips while you eat.
    Bring some money because Vancouver is not cheap. 💵💰
    The Sea Plane tour down in the harbor was a great fun ride to see the city and surrounding muntains.
    I was the fist one t board and was offered the seat in the cockpit next to the pilot. Awsome view. Emrick was our pilot and he was awsom.
    I can't wait to go back.

    It was the most pleasant experience I could have had. The driver Miki made the day trip even better than what it was meant to be. It was my first time in Canada and the views brought tears to my eyes. With all the commentary along the way I could appreciate all I was looking at and understand so much I would never have.

    The 2 guides were amazing from beginning to end. 2 people in our group were new to zip lining and they felt so taken care of and safe through the entire trip. The 5 zip lines were scenic and thoroughly enjoyable.
