A Recent Review of this tour

Darwin was great in all aspects. Very accommodating, very professional, very knowledgeable. He was able to customize our time in Victoria "on the fly". His suggestion for a winery visit and lunch was especially on point. Beautifully clean and spacious small motor coach with a great audio system, seated our group of 8 with plenty of room to spare. Large enough to be comfortable, but small enough to go places the larger coaches cannot get into.
