James Keith AlexanderNew Zealand
Darwin is a knowledgeable and personable tour guide. He listened to us, made suggestions, advised what was interesting and adjusted to match our agility. We saw aspects of Vancouver Island, people and places, we would not have otherwise visited. Heartily recommend Darwin to any future travellers.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Keith, Thank you so much for the kind feedback, it was real pleasure spending the day with the both of you. I know you have along vacation ahead of you and I wish you both the best throughout your travels. Darwin

This is a great tour and Darwin was a fantastic guide. Beautiful views, ancient rainforests, waterfalls, and cute little towns. Darwin was very knowledgeable about the history of the island, flora/fauna, and made great recommendations for things to do in town. Wish we were staying longer so we could do one of his other tours!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Caron, I am very happy to hear you all enjoyed your day out with me on the island. Thanks for taking the time to leave such a kind review. I do hope you come back to see more of our beautiful island. All the best! Darwin

Darwin made our day together fun and full of adventure. We explored off the beaten track sights as well as better known locations. Our safety and comfort were definitely priorities for him, which was appreciated. He is knowledgeable about the area and shares his knowledge easily. I would highly recommend spending time with Darwin.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Barbara, Thank you so much for the kind review. I really enjoyed your sprirt of adventure and your trust in me to alter our itinerary due to a park closure, it made for a very interesting and a more adventurous outing, as we both got to see something new. All the best on your adventures, and I do hope we get to meet again one day. Darwin

Very personable and knowledgeable about the area and the whole island itself. We were never rushed and was able to take as much time or as little time as we wanted at the different places. The vehicle was clean and spacious; no tiny car with shoulder to shoulder sitting. We recommend this company to others and just wish we would have had the time to explore the island more with Darwin. Thank you so much for a great and fun tour!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Janis, Thank you so much for taking the time to review the tour. It was a real pleasure spending the day showing you all some of the islands most beautiful scenery. I would love to see you all back again one day to show you so much more. All the best! Darwin
Gene WolfUnited States
This tour was everything we had hoped for. The scenery was fantastic. The town of Chemainus was almost magical in the early morning rain with its murals and Darwin's narrative of its history. Cathedral Grove was wonderful with its huge trees, ferns and beautiful hiking trails. We had lunch at the Coombs Market. We had worked up an large appetite hiking, the food was excellent. But the highlight was the sight of goats on the roof! What an experience! We would book another tour with Darwin in a heartbeat.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Gene, I am happy to hear you enjoyed all the locations of choice. All the best! Darwin
