Elizabeth was our guide, you will be lucky to have her. She is a safe, very knowledgeable driver and guide. She was the number one reason we had an unforgettable and delightful experience.

Elizabeth showed our group of six seniors an absolutely fantastic day in Victoria. She gave us a wonderful tour of Butchart Gardens and showed us many interesting areas of Victoria. Our ship’s departure was delayed and Elizabeth kindly accomadated our request to extend our tour.
