Raymond MercerUnited States
Darwin did a superb job. He was waiting for us with a name sign on the dock as we left the ship. He had a warm and engaging smile. His transportation was 5-star, and he offered us water during the trip. Darwin was extremely knowledgeable of Victoria. Despite the fact that the ship had to leave early because of pending weather conditions, he gave us more than our money's worth.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Raymond, Thank you for the very kind review. I had a great time with your group. Your flexibility and trust on my suggestions made out for a great day. Thank you again for your generosity. All the best through your travels, and I hope we get to meet again one day. Darwin
Shellie SweetUnited States
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.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Shellie, Thank you so much for the kind review. It was my pleasure to show your group around our beautiful city. Thanks again for choosing me as your guide. Datwin
Darwin is a great guide. Together we worked out a good itinerary for our party of 7 including children. Darwin was waiting for us ahead of schedule and had a very nice vehicle. Darwin possesses excellent knowledge on Victoria which he is happy to share.

Ronald JohnsonUnited States
This tour worked very well for our group. It gave us a chance to see the highlights of Victoria in a relaxed and comfortable setting at our own pace including the stops we wanted to make. Darwin was personable and knowledgeable. He provided some local flavor that we would have missed in a "standard" tour and the group thought he was great.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Ronald, Thanks for taking the time to leave kind feedback. you had a great group and I had just as much fun. Take care and safe travels! Darwin

Nicky RichmanUnited Kingdom
What a fabulous guide and tour.. We all had a great day Darwin he knew where to take us and when so missing all the crowds. He also gave us options on what we wanted to do. we went to the gardens , butterfly park, wine tasting , city tour , lunch where the locals go and a castle! We crammed loads into our day but never felt rushed! We saw 4 x as much then if we had done a cruise ship excursion Darwin was able to answer all our questions and knew lots of interesting facts etc where we where going . Thanks

Donna OdumUnited States
Darwin was absolutely the best tour guide I've ever had. I don't say that lightly. He was VERY responsive in a timely manner to emails when I had questions. We had a group of 14 and everyone commented on how great he was and how much they enjoyed the tour!!! We came to Victoria by boats and just had a day and a half there. Darwin definitely maximized our time. I enthusiastically recommend him!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Donna, Thank you so much for the very kind review. Your group was a lot of fun and full of energy. I hope the rest of your journey was just as pleasant. Thanks again for choosing me as your guide here in Victoria. Darwin

Sharon (Sharri) MarichUnited States
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

Jim W.United States
Darwin gave a phenomenal tour of the Victoria area. He instantly adapted our itinerary to accommodate one member of our group's abilities. This was our fourth trip to Victoria and we wanted to see something besides the tourist traps. We hiked in beautiful old growth forests and walked along the coastline. We visited local breweries and cideries and old grand palaces. My only suggestion would be to walk with us through the "castle" and impart some of the local flavor to the history.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Jim, Thank you so much for the nice review. I am happy to hear you all enjoyed the various stops. Thank you for the important feedback on the castle. The operators of the Castle don't generally allow us to guide you through the castle as they have their own guides. But being said that I do know one of the staff there and I will let them know that this service would be greatly appreciated if we can. All the best in your travels, and thanks again for hiring me as your guide for your adventure. Darwin
Glenn RasberryUnited States
Darwin was great and configured our tour to take advantage of the day's weather conditions. He is very knowledgeable with Victoria and it's history and some out of the way locations for photo ops. He was prompt and on time for meeting us at the airport and got us back to the airport in enough time for us to grab an earlier flight. We plan on returning in the fall for a wildlife tour with Darwin in hopes of catching a bear sighting. We plan on an extended stay in the fall to work in some golf.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Glenn, Thank you so much for the kind review. It was a real pleasure spending the day with the both of you. I really look forward to spending another great day showing you some of Vancouver Islands deep wilderness. All the best, and enjoy your summer! Darwin
