I'm taking my 16 year old granddaughter and her mom to Victoria to celebrate their birthdays August 10-13. I'm anxious to provide quality introduction to travel different from Disney/water parks. They chose Victoria as destination. Neither have strong opinions of activities, so I thought a hop on/off experience might be best for Friday (24 hr). Saturday I think Buchart Gardens with fireworks might appeal.
Question: I am totally confused by reviews of Big Bus Victoria. There's great Groupon offer now that is about half the cost of Grayline Activity. However, I'd hate to make decision on $$ and have poor experience. I've studied the route on both websites. Big Bus covers lots more area; Grayline route provides smaller area; all of it is close to hotel, Parkside Hotel and Spa.
Any strong opinions which to choose??? Thanks!
