My wife and I just took this tour a few weeks ago and we had a great experience. The landscapes are impressive and beautiful, walking on a... read more glacier was an unique experience and at the end having homemade chili for lunch in a farm was the cherry on top!
Our tour guide, Omar, was great and very supportive with everyone. If there was any issue coming up he found the best way for everyone to solve it and we did as a team. He's such a nice person too!!
You won't regret taking the tour!
Beautiful weather and fantastic view!
The tour was just amazing. Our guide Marcus was funny, very informative and considerate.

Great trip excellent driver and guide Faye answered all our questions and assisted where needed highly recommend her and this tour it was timed well.
It was such a good experience!! I loved the tour guide Maya, she is very kind and always happy!!
It would be better if we spent more time in... read more some places and less time in useless places!
I and my mother went on this amazing roadtrip! The vastness of the mountains, the glaciers, the colours in the lakes, witnessing but one moment in time a landscape that... read more has taken hundreds of millions of years to form, and still changing. It was a humbling experience. Joe, our driver, and Sabio, our tour guide (and manager!), were both excellent professionals with empathy, patience, attentiveness, and great at keeping us upbeat on some longer bus legs. Lots of fun, laughs, and infectious positivity. Great informative commentary on the various places we passed through or stopped at. Our accommodation was superb for the four nights. Breakfasts were fabulous. There were lots of opportunities for our group to mingle and get to know one another and this really added immense personal value to our trip. We will keep memories of our time in the Rockies forever. Our experience from beginning to end was really great with the Discover Canada staff both in office and on tour. Thank you all very much!
The entire tour was wonderful, it was well handled by Joe who was the driver and our guide. He took good care of us and ensured that the entire tour... read more was as per our expectations and with no mishaps. He was great with the entire group
Unfortunately it was cloudy and we couldn’t see Whistler. Not that you control the weather. We made the best of it with our guide Marco. He really turned the bad... read more weather into a positive. Big thanks to Marco!
Many thanks to Rene our driver guide for his very professional and respectful approach. Throw in some levity and history, and it made for a perfect overview of some... read more of the great areas in Vancouver. It gave us some great ideas for further exploration on our own. Went back to the Steam Clock, Gastown, Granville Island and Denman Street with a bit of knowledge in our back pocket
Sunken garden was amazing. Believe this to be best garden on earth. 100 year old redwoods were awesome as well.
Comfortable accommodations and gives a very nice overview of the city. Great for all ages! Highly recommend and would use this tour company again.
Victoria is a throwback to England of the 1950's in its appearance, with a lot of older buildings, intertwined with the more modern buildings. There is the Parliament buildings to... read more visit, but the jewel in the trip is Butchart Gardens. An absolutely beautiful collection of plants and flowers set out in the creator's garden. Take your time in walking round, as there is a lot to see. Brent, our tour driver, has been there on many occasions is very knowledgeable on both Victoria and the gardens
Great tour guide - Joe! Very knowledgeable, friendly, good driver. Victoria and garden tours very much worth seeing.
Joe made the whole tour informative and enjoyable. He gave us great tips, pointed out things we didn’t want to miss, and kept us all on schedule to be sure... read more we got to everything on time. Great tour!
The calm, serene, picturesque ferry ride to and from Vancouver Island!
Randy’s commentary & attempts at jokes!
Historical Victoria & shopping encounters, especially the people & store Staff I... read more met along the way!
Butchart Gardens as you know is Unbelievablely Magnificent and Beauty abounds abundantly everywhere! The Fountain is Spectacular in its surroundings! A Moment In Time Never to be Forgotten! Highly recommended!!!
As you can tell - I had a a Wonderful Time! Thank You to all the Staff in the Service Industry who made it all come to fruition for me!
Thanks for the Memories!
Sincerely, Ron Gorlick
This was an absolutely breathtaking experience. You see mountains. You see wildlife. You may even see those weird helicopters that suck up water to go dump on a wildfire. Absolutely... read more smashing way to explore a somewhat remote part of Canada. Omar, our guide, was an absolute gem. Knew how to read the energy of the crowd, kept everything running smoothly, and was just a genuinely wonderful person. Only complaint would be how the company sells the add-ons. Either give us the option to prebook or invest in something like Square so the poor guide doesn’t have to manually type all the card information in over the course of 5 hours, because service is spotty at best in the Rockies, while contending with winding roads and sometimes difficult lighting conditions.
Overall, beautiful tour, saw everything I would’ve wanted to, other than an uncooperative Mount Robson. Whoever’s reading this, you should go, and if Omar reads this, thank you again for a great trip!
Butchart Gardens are spectacular, especially the Sunken Garden. We’ll worth the trip. I’d like to go again in a different season to see how the arrangements change.
This tour was fantastic Our tour guide Omar was excellent, very friendly and knowledgeable about every aspect of the tour. The highlights were the Athabasca Glacier Walk and Banff.... read more We highly recommend this tour even though the days were long.
Amazing experience! Totally worthy! The optional activities are incredible and I do recommend everyone to do, specially the Athabasca Glacier! Also, Omar was an incredible guide, really friendly and... read more made this 4 day trip even better!
How does one start describing this experience? Truly nothing short of extraordinary! 11 days going from the Interior, to the Rockies, Northern BC and then down to the Island from... read more North to South, it was honestly a month's worth of traveling and adventure. There was a lot planned but there was also enough time to do additional optional activities or just have free time to explore. The planning and break down of the trip was top notch!
Our guide and driver Meghan did an excellent job sharing knowledge and information, making sure everyone was comfortable and had everything they need, planning for stops and drive throughs at the most amazing hidden gems. She has set the bar high as to what a tour guide should be like! The bus we travelled on was spotless and cleaned every day and was extremely comfortable.
This was such a great experience that we're already scouring the Discover Canada site for our next trip!
This was an incredible trip. The views were stunning. Surreal.
I couldn’t have been happier with my experience.
Our guides, Will and Kira, were a huge reason for that.... read more They were wonderful. The Best. Will’s energy, sense of humor, quick wit and thorough knowledge of the area and its history was exactly what I needed for this tour. I thought that the history tidbits they’d be relaying would be boring and monotonous. It was the opposite. He was so good at telling stories and anecdotes to make them interesting and funny that I still remember them! (quite a feat for me!)
Kira, our assistant guide and designated DJ was fantastic. Very friendly, helpful, and bright. She took care of everything when we were on the road so when we reached our destinations everything was ready for us.
The rooms were great. Very nice and comfortable. I did have an issue with one of my rooms, but our guides took charge and resolved it right away.
I’ll mention that there was no washroom on the bus, but it wasn’t a problem as we stopped for bathroom breaks regularly.
Our tour group members were also great. very inclusive and friendly.
Wether you’re looking to do this tour in a group or on your own, I highly recommend it.
On the first and last days of the tour, the journey was a bit exhausting as we spent most of the time on the coach. Fortunately, Omar was a caring... read more and humourous guy who knew how to make our journey full of wonders. And Yee, our coach driver was a very skillful coach driver which made us feel safe throughout the journey. Omar was also very knowledgeable and told us many fun facts about the places that we were going to visit. On the second and third days, the itineraries were absolutely amazing. We got to see so many beautiful lakes. The Athabasca glacier adventure was a very exciting experience. First, we hopped on an explorer bus with six big wheels. Along the travel, the tour guide told us a lot of stuff about glaciers and icefields. It felt like I was on another planet when I arrived at the Athabasca glacier! For the stay, the hotels were cozy but very comfortable. Overall, this is a great tour!
The experience was fenomenal. The tourist guide, Omar was great, amazing, super participative and helpful. The places are beautiful. It's worth it
This was a simply amazing experience that I would highly recommend to anyone.
Sabio and Joe are not just amazing guides, but an amazing couple of guys as... read more well. Their knowledge and expertise with anything and everything Vancouver, BC, the Rockies made the whole trip so enjoyable. Friendly, chill and tellers of some of the best stories; it's only been a few days since the tour ended, and I'm missing them already!
Bring a good pair of boots so you won't have to worry about avoiding rough terrain. A new pair of boots gifted to me are now well broken in.
Go on as many extra activities as you can afford, because all of them are well worthwhile and offer some of the best parts of the trip.
Also, really get to know your guides, and get comfortable with the other guests. You are sure to meet some of the most kind, curious, and amazing people on this trip.
Thanks for the experience, Discover Canada. It's one I won't forget, and also something I hope to repeat soon.
We booked a Viator Victoria & Butchart Gardens tour for the convenience of boarding one bus at our hotel, and then traveling by ferry to Vancouver Island & using the... read more same bus to travel to Victoria and Butchart Gardens. Little did we know that our driver, Eric Cooper, would turn out to be an amazing guide!
He turned what could have been a mundane ride to the ferry, into a trip full of facts and history interspersed with humor and family details. He made sure we al knew how to find the bus once we boarded the ferry and were turned loose to explore. Before we knew it, we were parking at Butchart Gardens. Eric’s tip about their great ice cream, was spot on. Two hours really is barely enough time to explore this amazing world envisioned by Jenny Butchart. But the paths, fountains, flowers and sculpture delight the senses at every turn.
After returning to the bus, Eric took us to Victoria. He dropped us off in front of the Empress Hotel and made some recommendations for dinner that we could fit into a two hour window. Our drop off point also had a wonderful view of the harbor and Parliament building. The two hours flew by and soon we were headed back to the ferry.
The last leg of the journey was a bit tough because we were exhausted. Twelve hours is a long day, even if you are not active every minute. But Eric really helped us through that last leg. And we were so up by the time he dropped us at our hotel, that we wrapped up the day with a celebratory glass of wine.
I am not sure if every driver/guide is as great as Eric, so you might want to do yourself a favor and treat yourself to one of the best I have encountered.
The week we spent on the Rockies premium tour has been amazing. With our fantastic driver Joe and guide Sabio, they took great care of us and were so much... read more fun. Providing us with interesting facts and good laughs on the way.
My partner and I highly recommend the tour, its filled with interesting locations, varied optional activities and some absolutely breathtaking sites. Two highlights are going up the Banff Gondola and Lakes Day.
Beautiful gardens. Great use of an old quarry. An hour and a half is enough time though to see all at a reasonable pace.
Food options seem more... read more limited since Covid
We were a group of 4 adults (family) and everyone has the same positive feedback.
The tour was great. The sights were incredible, the hotels were luxurious and our... read more group was fun.
What made this tour even more enjoyable was our guide Will and our assistant guide Kira. They were resourceful, knowledgeable, accommodating, funny and just great company. They were quick to address any issues and did everything they could to make our experience even more enjoyable.
I highly recommend this tour.
Discover Canada did a fabulous job for our group of 15 friends celebrating for a week in Vancouver. Over the course of the week we had a lovely hotel,... read more a full schedule of activities, a small bus, and lunch and dinner. We had worked on the itinerary and restaurant choices for a year and all the arrangements were great. We had memorable meals at Five Sails and Delara. Any issues that arose (like a sudden rain during a walking tour) were dealt with promptly and with a minimum of fuss. I particularly want to thank Jennifer (our unflappable tour coordinator) and Rene (our wonderful guide who is is a fount of knowledge about Canada). I can't recommend this company highly enough.
We arrived early for our cruise and wanted to see Vancouver. We really enjoyed our tour and Janelle was an excellent tour guide. She is knowledgeable and adds... read more her own person anecdotes to her narration. I highly recommend this tour for anyone seeing Vancouver for the first time.
Great day out of the city we went in a small bus, 20 passengers, was a good size compared to those large tour buses. Joe was a very pleasant, organized... read more and well informed guide and at the end of a long day he dropped some of us off along the way so we didn’t have to walk so far home, much appreciated.
Time spent on Victoria was great, could have been longer except it was a very long day. The Bucharest gardens were spectacular, nice to be there late in the day when it wasn’t so crowded.
