Working in the tourist industry for more than ten years and doing hundreds of tours, it has been my pleasure to meet wonderful people from all over the world and many of them have become friends.
I never get tired of showing off our beautiful city. From the downtown area, to Butchart Gardens, wine tours in the Cowichan Valley, or spending the day in Duncan, there is so much to see and do in our area and each place has its own beauty and its own story, and I love to tell those stories.
I love history, and although Victoria is young, compared with many other areas, there is a lot to see and do here. Anytime of the year it is beautiful. I marvel at the Rhododendrons in the spring and the roses in the summer, the breathtaking lights in the downtown area at night and the sunsets on a summers eve. It never gets boring.
My tours are designed for people who want to tour in a relaxed manner. Get out the vehicle where they want, or just sit and enjoy the sunset.
Remember, this is your tour, and I want you to enjoy it.
A Recent Review of this guide
What a fun day! Sandra took us to some smaller wineries that had exceptional wines. Plus a cidery, and a winery that also makes balsamic vinegar. It was really nice to be able to spend as little or as much time as we wanted at each place. We would highly recommend Sandra if you're interested in the Wineries.
