    We loved Butchart Gardens! It was beautiful, everything we expected and more. Alex was our tour guide and his commentary was informative and full of history. We came away with a good feel for the development of Vancouver. Overall an excellent day!

    Great trip! In addition a fun day on the water, we got lucky and saw a pack of orcas. The crew was informative and able to tell us a lot about the individuals we were seeing, as well as a quick history of whaling in BC.

    The views on the drive up were fantastic but paled in comparison to the beautiful sights going up the Sea to Sky gondola and Shannon Falls. Whistler was gorgeous with so many different things to do. I chose the Peak to Peak gondola. A little scary but so worth it for the magnificent scenery at the top. Must be seen to be believed

    What an amazing day, I loved it, Shannon Falls is spectacular, the gondola was stunning and I even braved the suspension bridge (and it was not so scary as I thought it might be)) and Whistler is mighty pretty. The tour was made extra special by our guide, Brent, what a truly amazing man, he shared interesting insights throughout the tour and whilst I'm sure he has told these stories many many times before, he made it sound like this was the first time of telling. He was helpful, kind, courteous and generally brilliant!

    What a great adventure, The new Eclipse catamaran boat was smooth and not a bad seat on it. Saw a pod of 6 killer whales and a humpback whale and her baby. cruised by Rae Rock where we saw lots. Scott was an amazing Guide, all his information really made the trip.

    The timing and duration of the tour was perfect. The drive and tour guide was excellent. The Capilano Suspension Bridge and the cliff edge walk was the highlight of our visit to Vancouver.

    Easy to book. Easy to know where to meet. Looked after really well during our trip. Our best advice for this trip is do not book anything for later in the day. Our 3 hour trip turned into 4.5hrs. Wildlife is unpredictable, do you want to be the one who cuts short a trip and miss out on seeing something. We chose the covered boat; with a zodiac you get no shelter and are very low. With the boat you stay warm and dry whilst getting to the destination and then can go "up top" for better views.

    It was stupendous. After all these years of being a "fraidy cat" I finally decided to do a zipline after my 8 year old wanted to go. That first step was hard, but once zipping it was just great. So much fun. Now hooked and want to do the bigger one next. The guides were terrific.

    Seaplane ride from Vancouver to Victoria island was on my bucket list. Awesome ride and scenic views. Victoria island is quaint and picturesque. Buchart Gardens were crowded with narrow pathways. Longwood Gardens in Kennett Square, Pa. is much better.

    Loved everything. The flight was on time and smooth. Our whale watching zodiac captain was knowledgeable and patient- he took the time to stop and show us porpoises on the way back home.

    This is an extensive, well kept, easy to visit garden that will easily to satisfy even moderate flower lovers like myself. Being in a tour helps avoid the logistics of getting a car, driving and parking for those of us who are from out of town. Instructions for meeting were clear. Lunch (not included) was surprisingly decent. We had a very good day.

    Exciting place to be . Clean environment. But on checking out they have a computer where you can write your review. There’s a place where you must state we’re you are coming from sadly there was no option to state I am from Africa. Every other continent was there .

    Our guide Mark was fantastic at sharing lots of knowledge about Vancouver during the 4 hour trip. The combination of riding through Stanley Park and the city was a great way to experience Vancouver. Highly recommended to do this on your first day in the city (we did it on our last) as the learnings are a great way to plan your next few days. The electric bikes we excellent and it is no effort Torricelli around the park/city.

    Oh my goodness, how good was that to see, a Humpback and her calf(big mama) a Minky whale and a transient teenage Killer Whale all in one trip in their natural environment rather than in captivity. Pete and Sierra where so knowledgeable and passionate about the whales and wildlife, and the need to protect their environment. It was an incredible trip and I would absolutely recommend. Just be sure to wear plenty of layers and apply sunscreen to your face on a sunny day.
