Great tour & guide but poorly organized
Corey_Y

The tour content and guide (Alex) were excellent. Alex was very attentive and knew/shared a great deal of interesting historical info on not just Butchart Gardens but Vancouver, Victoria, and BC area in general. I felt that he has a genuine passion for history and sharing which made the tour enjoyable. The problem I had was with the pick up logistics. On the reservation form it asks which hotel you want to be picked up from so I put down my hotel. When I called day before to confirm tour and pick up location, I was told due to covid there was no pick up available and I had to make my own way to the starting point at Canada Place. If I hadn't called I probably would have missed the tour or made everyone wait. But when the tour bus arrived, it had indeed picked up a few people from hotels. So what's the deal Viator, is hotel pick up included or not??? You need to sort this out with the operator Gray Lines. Another issue is there was no one to greet and check people in at Canada Place. We had to keep checking with each bus as it arrived. After 4 wrong buses, we finally found the right one. This is very annoying and disrespectful to guests, some of who were getting frantic as their tour start times approached. One group of 4 women were especially rude, cutting in front of waiting guests to find their bus. There needs to be a company rep on site to control this sort of bad behavior instead of creating a free for all.

Thank you for your feedback on your Victoria Tour. We apologize that there were some communication issues and we are taking those up with Viator and discussing internally for future guests. We are happy however, that Alex provided an excellent tour.

Gordy was a very good tour guide, very knowledgeable and informative. It’s a lot to do in one day but if that’s all you can spare to get to Victoria from Vancouver, as we did, then it is a great overview of the Butchart Gardens and downtown Victoria. Definitely not a lot of time to do things, but then on a tour like this you shouldn’t expect to.
