Darwin did an exceptional job for us as a step on guide for our Victoria Highlights tour. He was also very helpful in assisting us in finding our box lunch vendor (Red Barn Market on James Bay) and with help in parking the 45' motorcoach around town and engaged very nicely with our passengers. 5 Stars!!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Carla, Thank you again for booking me as your walk on guide. It was a pleasure to do this tour for your group, and they were a wonderful group of people. I hope to see you and Robbie again some day in the future. All the best! Darwin

Darwin was an awesome guide and extremely friendly and perceptive. He understood our time schedule and made our wishlist happen! We were in Victoria on a cruise ship and he picked us up dockside w/no problem. We went to two castles (Craigdarroch Castle and Hatley Park National Historic Site), Andersen Hill for awesome views and pictures, Beacon Hill Park (peacocks and black squirrels), We also went to the harbor, viewed stately homes (w/real deer in the yard!) and the Fairmont Hotel -2 Thumbs Up Tour

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Gayle, Thank you so much for the kind feedback. I am very happy to hear that we tapped into the sights of your interests. Thanks again for choosing me as your guide here in Victoria. All the best! Darwin

Cheryl, Terry, Val and I thought that Darwin and his personalized Victoria tour exceeded our expectations. Darwin was amazing from greeting to drop off, showing us all the highlights we asked and more in a short window of daylight. I learned of routes, areas and detail and I have visited many times and even lived in Victoria for over a year. A personable, charming and great person to meet! Vehicle was comfortable, again first rate with couple of caring touches, water and walking stick for our dear friend!

Darwin was awesome! When our cruise ship arrived, he was waiting there with his SUV. He took us around to see all the sights promised, as well as modifying the route to accommodate a change in needs. In addition to helping us with photos, Darwin also showed us a few souvenir shops and gave recommendations for a nice dinner at Il Terrazo. We highly recommend Darwin, and will use him again the next time we return to Victoria.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Robert, Thank you so much for the kind feedback. I had a great time with you guys, and I am happy to hear you enjoyed the dinner recommendation. Thanks for choosing me as your guide for your visit here in Victoria. Darwin

Fabulous tour! Darwin was waiting on the dock with a sign with our name when we arrived in port. He took our family of 6 right to his ultra clean new suburban and off we went! His knowledge and history of the city was great! He took us to points of interest all around the city and allowed us to get out and take pictures along the way. The personalized nature of this tour was outstanding! Highly recommend!

Darwin is a pleasant person and was knowledgeable about the area. We would have liked even more history and facts. He did a good job of customizing the trip for our group.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Nancy, Thanks for taking the time to review the tour. I am sorry if you weren't 100% satisfied. It is important for your feedback as well. I really encourage my guests to speak up if that cannot hear properly and let me know so I can fix the issue right away, so in this particular case I could if shut the fan off and suggested you all sit closer or ask me to turn up the sound system to an appropriate hearing level if you have any questions about our history I may have missed please ask. Thanks!

Darwin's awesome! We travelled with my 80+ yr old in-laws, one in wheelchair & it was not problem for Darwin. He stowed the wheelchair & off we went in his luxury van. He was willing to stop for photo-ops (if it was safe to pull over). Sometimes he slowed down enough so I could get shots out the window if traffic was behind us & nowhere to pull over. He even offered to take photos of us & made a pit stop when my mother-in-law needed a restroom break. We hired him an extra hr so we could shop after.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Melanie, Thanks you so much for the feedback. I am happy to hear you had a great experience. You have a wonderful family. I hope to see you all again one day. Darwin

Darwin was an excellent tour guide - on time meeting us directly when we got off the ship, very knowledgeable about Victoria, accommodating our requests and overall very friendly and respectful. His associate, Cherrie, was the same. Wonderful experience in Victoria and would highly recommend Darwin or Cherrie for your driver!

The guide is knowledgeable about the city and the first half of the tour went well but after that it dragged, The guide, Darwin, kept taking a lot of unnecessary pictures at Craigdarroch Castle, wasting time. We also made a stop to feed seals at a marina which I found a waste of time We might have been able to cover Butchart Gardens if we hadn't gone to feed seals and visit the castle. We also didn't see any of the university campuses. Not worth the $272 price.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Reid, Thanks for taking the time to review the tour. I am a shocked at the review as this is the tour you booked knowing the sites that you wanted to see, when asked if you wanted to stop and visit specific sites like the castle and the seals you said yes, and you to enjoy it. If you did not want to spend time there it is expected of the customer to speak up and say so.. When I asked about the Butchart Gardens you said you were going there a few days .if you had asked me to take you there I would of.
