Darwin shared so many stories and hidden gems of Victoria. We will now go back and explore in detail. I did not know Victoria as a "haunted" city.

AMAZING tour of Victoria

We had the pleasure of spending our first full day in Victoria with Darwin of Surfside Adventure Tours! He is super knowledgeable and personable and we felt as though we were being shown around town by a relative! He showed us ALL the highlights of this beautiful city and gave us personal insights and recommendations that were on point each time! We feel so grateful that we had him as our tour guide for our memorable trip to this MAGICAL place. We also left something of sentimental value in the van and Darwin went out of his way to bring it back to us the next day which really meant a lot to my grandmother and we are truly thankful. We recommend this tour to anyone coming to the area: Please explore Victoria with Darwin! You will not be disappointed! -J & D Tucker and Family.

Our guide picked us up at pier with a sign to identify herself to our party. She was pleasant and accommodating as possible as our group had some dissent as to where the tour should go. The high light of the tour was visiting Butchart Gardens. Our guide gave us 90 minutes to tour the gardens which was adequate on this particular day as the crowds weren't bad. We enjoyed the drive around Victoria City and the information we received about the various sights.

Very nice tour, we had a group of 7 with two senior citizens so it was a great alternative to the big bus that picks you up at the hotel. The driver picked us up at the cruise ship terminal, due to weather he gave us about a total of 1 hr 15 min tour of the city half day and half night. Would repeat

Great private tour! We had a limited amount of time in the city. Our guide gave us a quick, yet comprehensive, overview of the city. We also spent 90 minutes in Butchart Gardens, which was enough to see all the beautiful flowers. I would highly recommend this tour.

This private tour was wonderful. My tour guide, Darwin, was very knowledgeable about the city and the sites and also provided local color, including many ghost stories. I didn't stay at the gardens too long because it was cold, so he took me to the Castle and made sure I got a great value for my tour dollars. I highly recommend this tour.
