    Had an awesome experience! It happened to be a sunny calm day on the water, the landscape was phenomenal and the whales were really something to see!

    The naturalists offered a wealth of information including the whale names and backgrounds. Wilma was a fantastic guide, she made the already exciting experience even more fun!

    The whole day from start to finish was fantastic!
    Senan our driver and tour guide did an amazing job throughout. He was very knowledgeable about all aspects of the trip and extended the information in an interesting and,often, humorous way.
    Senan was helpful, recommending places of interest in Victoria and the best way to view the gardens.
    Thankyou Senan and Gray Line Westcoast Sightseeing for providing a fabulous tour.

    Nigel and Wong were great! The PA system was troublesome all day. It was a great way to see different areas of Vancouver. Wished we had more time at the bridge as it was a busy day with the crowds and we didn’t get to experience it all. The Granville market was ok but we aren’t shoppers so we found a nice bar and had a glass of wine while others shopped. TripAdvisor is great to enjoy the sights without the hassle.

    Flight took 35 minutes to Victoria. Then we needed to walk about 20 minutes because we took a covered boat which I highly recommend for anyone that is cold. Because it is cold and windy on the boat. On the Orca Mist you can go in and out plus there is a bathroom.
    The Zodiac is an open boat with several seats (they do give you some type of protective clothing).
    We had a great time with Captain Bill and Jake our guide.
    First they want you to enjoy the trip. So Jake takes pictures for you which you will have access to. Of course you can take pictures but his are going to be better with the camera he has believe me.
    I did take pictures but every with a telephoto iPhone it will not compare to what he will have.
    We saw a family of Orca teaching the baby to hunt and then they were playing. It was definitely amazing to see.
    Then we saw the sea lion island and finally we saw a Humpback whale.
    Obviously I’ve read the reviews and people were upset they didn’t see anything. It’s chance you will or you won’t see something. What was the chance of seeing a family of Orcas teaching the baby to hunt?
    I really enjoyed our trip was definitely a once in a lifetime adventure!

    Our flight was fun and covered the hills and city. Robb was a great pilot. The takeoff and landing was much smoother than I anticipated.

    The guide Steve was really informative although at tines the microphone he was using had a melt down.
    The suspension bridge views are awesome. Well worth experiencing

    Granville island was a little disappointing as there was a power outage .

    Views from across Harbour are very pretty .

    Stanley Park is worth a look with the toten poles .

    Well done Steve on creating a great day

    Erick was our tour guide and was absolutely fantastic! We had the pleasure of being the only ones to sign up for this tour that day. Grouse Mountain was our first stop. Erick walked around with us pointing out areas of what interest to explore. We had a great conversation. After a coffee to warm up we came down the mountain and went to the suspension bridge where we explored on our own. The suspension bridge and the walk through the tree tops were incredible sights to see! Erick gave us great insight about the city and places to visit during our stay. Highly recommended, both tour and guide!

    Very organized trip. Our guide/driver was awesome, very informative and considerate. One day may be too short for Victoria, but we didn't waste any minutes on the way. I would definitely recommend this one day trip to my friends if they don't have much time to stay. Our driver played the Buthchart Gardens video on the way back, so no need to buy it in the gift store. He also dropped us off to a location closer to our hotel. We really appreciate that especially when we traveled with a kid after a tiring long day. Thank you so much!

    If you want to see a garden while in Vancouver, this is a good option. You can easily spend a couple of hours wandering around this garden which showcases plants and trees from around the world at a fraction of the cost of Butchart Gardens on Vancouver Island. This is a seasonal garden so your experience will vary depending upon when you visit. The garden staff keep the place in very good order. There is also a decent cafe on site.

    Perfect half day excursion. Lighthouse, seals, cliffs. Got lucky and had a flat sea day but our driver was kind enough to chase down some ferries to get us a few wake jumps.

    My favourite part was meeting Hal and the horses (Jack and Bigger). Even though Jack was a little naughty, Hal behaved himself throughout. Hal in fact gave a very knowledgeable narration along our tour which included information on the horses, history of the park and Vancouver the city itself.
    It was a very warm day and the staff had fans and water spray for the horses and they seamed very well cared for.
    A lovely little trip around Stanley park, thank you

    Totally in awe with the natural beauty of the Joffre Lakes! It is a must go to place when visiting BC! Great to have an awesome guide like Nafees - as he gave very good tips on hiking and photography!
