Sandra was a great guide for our brief stay on Victoria. She had a driver as well, (Linda was wonderful too) so she could give us her attention while we were driving. We were a group of 8 ranging in ages (19-52) and had a loose itinerary. Butchart Gardens was our main focus and then we wanted to do some exploring outside of downtown. Sandra balanced our diverse group's needs and found happy spots for everyone. We really enjoyed her knowledge of the history of Victoria as well.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Maggie Thank you for your wonderful review. I enjoyed meeting you and your wonderful family. I hope you come back and visit us again soon. We will take you hiking next time. Sandra

Sandra was an amazing tour guide. She was courteous and very knowledgeable about the area. We had a 12-year-old traveling with us and when he got restless, Sandra suggested we stop at a toy store and get him something to play with. He was thrilled. Communication with Sandra while planning this was excellent. I highly recommend her.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Wendy, Thank you for your kind words. It was a joy meeting the family and showing them our beautiful city. I hope they come back and visit again. Sandra

Sandra Found was so personable and knowledgeable of everything Victoria. And her driver Shannon was a great addition. They were on time to meet us at the port. Sandra took us to all of the sites noted in the tour description, and she even threw in a short visit to feed adorable harbor seals. The van for 5 of us was very comfortable with seating and temperature, and it even had a speaker system to make sure the person in the back could hear. This was my first use of Tours By Locals, but it won't be my last

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for this great review. I always try my best to show visitors everything our city has to offer. I love those seals! I hope you come back and visit us again soon. Sandra

Because we were 6 passengers, including 2 youngsters (4 & 2 years old), we utilized the private tour more for convenience and to see as much as we possibly could during our 5 hour docking time in Victoria. The tour, although pricey for the amount of interraction that we had with the guide, did accomplish this. We paid for a luxury and got it. Typically, I would give an additional tip to the guide but, because most of our time was spent alone, I solely tipped the driver.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Unfortunately, I could not tour with you through Butchart Gardens. Guides are not allowed to do so. The gardens are very strict with this policy and if caught guides can lose their privilege of taking guests to the gardens. Please come back and visit us again as. Sandra

Tour: Butchart Plus - Day Trip, Victoria, British Columbia, Canada
Date: Sep 29/16

My wife and I had a great shore excursion, thanks in large part to Sandra's knowledge and willingness to customize. She met us at the pier and we were off to Butchart Gardens. She pointed out sites of interest along the way and told us lots about Victoria, a city that was new to us. Afterwards, we went to a wonderful cidery we had heard about (Sea Cider) and grabbed a quick lunch before heading back to the city proper. Stopped to meet some Harbor Seals along the way & then a tour of the city. GREAT!!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for this wonderful review. I really enjoyed meeting you and your wife and showing you our beautiful city. Victoria has so much to offer and the seals are one of my favourite things to introduce our guest to. Most people don't realize we have wineries and a great cidery in our area, as well as two distilleries and craft beer as well. It was my pleasure to show you some of the great places we have here. Come back and visit us again. Sandra

Sandra and John were great. We were picked up right at the dock. We learned a lot about the history of Victoria and saw many points of interest. The highlight of the tour was Butchart gardens. We highly recommend a stop there. Absolutely beautiful. Thank you Sandra and John for a great time in Victoria, BC.
