We highly recommend this tour. Darwin met us at the Harbour Air terminal and spent fours hours with us showing us the highlights of Victoria and Butchart Gardens. It was a great trip and worth every penny.

When visiting Victoria, this tour led by Darwin is a must! It was absolutely phenomenal!! Our original tour was supposed to start at 4pm but Darwin contacted me earlier and advised he would come pick us up at 2:30 which was shortly after our cruise ship arrived. We appreciated the earlier time as we were able to beat the crowds and enjoy the gardens while there was still daylight. Darwin was very knowledgeable and took us to several hidden gems in Victoria -- these are places tourists normally don’t get to visit if they are with those big tours with 20+ people. He gave us great information on Butchart Gardens and helped us take pictures. This was probably one of the best guided tours I have ever been on! It was well worth the time and money. Thank you Darwin for a great tour of Victoria!!

Darwin hosted our private tour through Victoria and Butchart Gardens. We had a comfortable ride in his large van with our group of 8. Darwin was friendly, knowledgeable and gave us a great day in the city and gardens and took us to the best sandwich place in town. We can't wait to go back and experience more of the city with him as our guide.
