Date: Jul 10/18

Elizabeth is prompt, flexible, and knowledgeable. We booked with her to tour Butchart Gardens and take a boat ride there. She made our lunch reservations at the tea house, and we enjoyed her company so much we invited her to eat with us and then ride on the boat. In addition to Butchart Gardens, she showed us a lovely trail through a mossy woods, gave us a quick walkthrough of the Government House gardens, and finally returned us to our ship via Arbutus Park, extending our tour. Highly recommended!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: You are such lovely people. It was a pleasure to tour with you. As well, I enjoyed your stories and great knowledge. Thank you for a lovely day!!!

Lovely tour with excellent, knowledgeable guide. Gave us a great overview of Victoria, which is very beautiful. Loved the stop at the Marina where we were lucky enough to be able to see the seals. Beautiful scenery and a view of the town, well customised for me to avoid too much walking. A great day thank-you

Elizabeth was a delightful tour guide. She was very knowledgable about the history of each location we visited. Elizabeth was very accommodating to our needs, as I was touring with my elderly parents. Her vehicle was also extremely comfortable and provided a good view. She was always smiling and you could see that she truly enjoys her work. I would highly recommend her and should I return to Victoria, I will definitely give her a call.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for the great review. You are an exceptionally nice and energetic family including your elderly parents. Fun time! Looking forward to seeing you again in Victoria. Elizabeth

Elizabeth was a super guide. She did exactly what we wanted and shared her expert knowledge of the city. You could tell she loved her city. At many places she gave us different options on how to continue. We had a great overview of the town. We walked at several locations, and stopped for a quick lunch which again was our option. I would thoroughly recommend Elizabeth.

Elizabeth met us at our agreed upon destination exactly on time. She then took us to the gardens by all back roads which was fantastic as we got to see the local environment. She then guided us through a very thorough, organized non-rushed tour of the Butchart Gardens. We then stopped at a sandwich location she recommended where we got food and then journeyed to the top of a hill overlooking all of Victoria and ate a nice lunch with great scenery. I highly recommend a tour directed by her.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Was a real pleasure to spend time with you and your wife. I enjoyed learning about your lovely neck of the woods and sharing some of our local favourite spots and country roads on the Island. All the best.

Elizabeth was terrific. She is knowledgeable, articulate, friendly and helped us make the most of our short visit to Victoria. Aside from being informative about the sites we visited and local history, she provided tips on how we should best utilize our time. Her van was comfortable, as we explored a few off-the-beaten-path sites we would never have known about. And she took us to a spot for great fish tacos! We would highly recommend her. Thanks Elizabeth!

We were a group of two 70 year old couples. The ladies both have a pretty good knowledge of flowers and consider themselves gardeners. Elizabeth did a great job of taking us through Butchart Gardens and was able to answer every question about the flowers and plants. The ladies were amazed and impressed. After the tours we had an idyllic lunch in a restaurant in Sydney overlooking the beach and bay with Mt. Baker in Washington state in the distance. She has a very nice mini van and is fun to be with.

Elizabeth was great but the tour was much too expensive for what we got in return. Half of our tour time was eating lunch.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Susan I really enjoyed taking you to the various vineyards in Saanich and the brewery overlooking the water for lunch. I understand that the wine tour seemed too expensive for you because you thought it was all inclusive. However, all my tours specify that wine, food, admissions are not included in the tour price to prevent guests from facing price restrictions. I hope that you feel somewhat compensated with the extra 30 minutes of touring I provided free of charge

Elizabeth was exceptional. She used continuous feedback to ensure we were interested in what we were seeing, provided alternatives, allowed us to choose options, and so much more than the cruise line excursions provide. Her personal touches included taking scenic back roads, providing refreshments, dropping us and picking us up at the door to avoid the rain showers (while she, herself, got soaked!), dining recommendations, photos of our group using our cameras, and a parting gift! Thank you, Elizabeth!

Elizabeth was awesome. She was very easy to talk with and seemed very concerned that I was thoroughly entertained. She is very knowledgeable about the tours and the history of the areas where we toured. It was one of the most magic days of my life.

Tour: #42336, A hike through enchanting Thetis Lake, Victoria, British Columbia, Canada    view tour
Date: Oct 10/12

Our second tour with Elizabeth,as pleasant as the first. There is beaufiful country not far from Victoria. Thetis Lake is beautiful and the hike around it,invigorating. Elizabeth also took us to see a coastal defense site that was manned during both world wars and a much photographed light house on the coast. Lunch at the oldest pub in BC, then a drive through charming parts of Victoria we hadn't seen. We walked to the end of a breaker wall in the harbor. A very pleasant day with an informative guide.

Tour: #42964, Back-Country To Butchart Gardens, Victoria, British Columbia, Canada    view tour
Date: Oct 9/12

Our first tour with guide Elizabeth, and it was wonderful. Buchart Gardens is spectacular from one end to the other, and Elizabeth made sure we saw everything. But, we covered the gardens at our own pace and never felt rushed. We also enjoyed tea in the Garden's restaurant. Elizabeth is an interesting well accomplished lady, very enthusiastic, open and eager to please. My wife and I are well satisfied with the tour and our friendly guide.

Elizabeth was absolutely delightful. She knew a lot about the things & places we wanted to visit and suggested others we hadn't known about. She was also amenable to pushing Martha's wheelchair while I took pictures....@ Butchart Gardens & the Museum. Both Martha & I enjoyed her company and her experience with touring. Please say "hello" to her for us & wish her continued success with her tours.
