Victoria Island and Butchart Gardens

By: Sally & Lyman

Reviewed on: 30 Aug 2016

We finished up our cruise by spending two days in Vancouver with a trip out to Victoria and Butchart Gardens. What a way to cap off a fabulous cruise. Butchart Gardens has been on our bucket list for a while and it didn't disappoint - truly some of the most beautiful gardens and flowers we have ever seen. Got to take advantage of great restaurants in Vancouver and stayed at The Rosewood Georgia Hotel - fantastic. We want to go back to Vancouver just to stay at the Georgia again....

It was good. The first day tour of Vancouver was not that complete and we really did not need a guide. The second day day going to Stanley park, the countryside was informative, complete, and beneficial to all ages involved. David was our driver and he was excellent, professional, and very informative.

Great Tours

Walking Tour of Historical Montreal and the Food/Aromas Tour were great. Both guides were friendly, informative, and flexible. They connected well with the family. We had a location/meeting place miscommunication for the Food Tour, but it was resolved quickly and without issue.

Eastern Canada

Reviewed on: 31 May 2018

Discover Holidays provided a lot of good information and maps. I appreciated the Lonely Planet guide on arrival to my hotel in Montreal. The only criticism was they were difficult to get a hold of out of hours when they had double booked rooms for me in Halifax. My travel advisor, however, was able to get in touch with them to sort it out.

Too many buses


Reviewed on: 27 Jul 2018

A few too many bus tours for my taste. How long can you sit? The drivers were fine. MIKE, in particular (Brewster tours) was excellent. He is a treasure. The content of his talks was intelligent, creative, and entertaining. We were lucky enough to have him as our driver for two days. WE MISS YOU, MIKE!

Some Mix Up

By: Fred

Reviewed on: 26 Sep 2018

The hotel, tours, and activities included in our visit were first rate. There was, however, a bit of mix up with what we needed to obtain our passes to some attractions. Vouchers were not provided before our trip. Not sure if it was Discover Holidays or our travel agent. I think because Discover Holidays is so well known, the situation was quickly rectified at our destination and we had a great experience.
