Our most popular full day narrated tour takes you from downtown Vancouver across to Vancouver Island. Your travel will be onboard our comfortable tour coach and BC Ferries for a spectacular 95 minute cruise through the marine wonderland of the Gulf Islands. Once docked on Vancouver Island (Swartz Bay), the tour continues on to the world-famous Butchart Gardens with their 50-acre display of magnificent foilage. After the Gardens we head for downtown Victoria through quaint Chinatown and the Inner Harbour. You will have free time once in downtown Victoria to explore and view the Inner Harbour, the Empress Hotel, the Royal BC Museum and the BC Legislature. Departure from downtown Victoria for your return journey to Vancouver is at 5:45 pm. Enjoy your return "Cross-Water" journey to the mainland onboard BC Ferries. Watch for whales! You'll arrive in Vancouver at approximately 9:30 pm, where you can be dropped off at your downtown hotel or disembark at the terminal. As always, we offer the ability to return on any of our frequent departures.
