Highly recommend Darwin. He was very knowledgeable, courteous, and made our tour very memorable. He took us to all the highlights of Victoria and Butchart Gardens. I assumed he would just leave us at the gardens, but he actually came inside to point out different parts of the Garden so we would not miss seeing them. He exceeded our expectations. There were six of us on this tour, and we all would recommend him.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Connie, It was a real pleasure showing your group around. I had a great time with all of you. Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a kind review. All the best! Darwin

Darwin was an excellent guide for our day in Victoria. He had a great route planned out for all of our stops to minimize the traffic and road construction. He even went into Butchart Gardens with us to take some great group photos which we really appreciated. He allowed us plenty of time at each stop and was great at helping us get tickets and entrance to all of our preferred stops on the tour. He realized we really enjoyed the local architecture and drove us through some beautiful neighborhoods too.

Darwin couldn't have been better. Our group of 5 had 3 elderly people (one with walking difficulties) and 2 younger folks who are active and not challenged in any way. He dealt with this combination expertly, making sure everyone remained comfortable, engaged, and cared for. This was not the easiest challenge in the world, and Darwin handled it without dropping a beat.

Absolutely perfect! Darwin was right on time picking us up at our hotel with a very clean car.He customized the tour just for us. Lovely tour of Victoria before the traffic got heavy. Early to Butchart Gardens to avoid the crowds. Lunch and wine tasting at a beautiful winery then off to a local distillery, just what we wanted, visiting with friendly people.Tour of lovely neighborhoods. There were just the two of us and we enjoyed the attentive service.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Sharon, Thank you so much for the kind feedback. We had a wonderful day with the both of you. We enjoyed your stories and our time together. All the best in your travels! Darwin and Cherrie

We loved our wine tour from Victoria up the Cowichan Valley. Darwin grew up here and knows all the wineries and back roads. Traffic can be heavy and Darwin knows how to get around it. We enjoyed a great lunch at our first winery stop. Our wine tastings, Darwin's knowledge of the area, and his pleasant personality were just what we were looking for in the tour.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Sid, Thank you so much for the kind review. It was a pleasure spending the day with Patty and yourself. All the best! Darwin
