This wonderful tour begins with pickup at your hotel. From there, you'll take a 45 minute-1 hour ride to the ferry pier for the journey to Vancouver Island, where the beautiful city of Victoria is located. Your bus will drive right onto a ferry for the 1.5 hour cruise to Vancouver Island. You'll land at Swartz Bay and drive through exclusive residential areas and parks on the way to downtown Victoria. You'll see the Parliament Buildings, Empress Hotel, Beacon Hill Park, and more.

You'll have approximately 3 hours of free time to explore this quaint city by the sea, have some lunch on your own, and take in one of the varied local attractions such as the Royal British Columbia Museum, Maritime Museum of BC, Miniature World or Bug Museum.

From downtown Victoria, you'll enjoy a 30-minute pastoral drive through the countryside on the way to the famous Butchart Gardens. Spread across 55 acres, the Butchart Gardens are truly a sight to be seen. You'll find spectacular views as you stroll along meandering paths and expansive lawns. From the exquisite Sunken Garden to the charming Rose Garden, you'll be amazed at this incredible display of flowering plants all year long. You'll have about 1.5 hours to enjoy the gardens before making the return trip to Vancouver.

In Cozumel we enjoyed the snorkeling that we did off a catamaran. The staff was friendly, very professional, and helpful with my first time snorkeling daughter. Grand Cayman we went to sting ray city with a trip and snorkeling. Staff and trip was amazing, crew very helpful and fun. in Jamaica we did a Dunn's River Falls excursion and private beach. We had fun but were not impressed with the staff, and their timeliness (waited around alot),

Traveling into Russia can be nerve-wracking (and getting more so every day) -- but ShoreTrips made it easy by providing all of the paperwork and instructions, as well as organizing good guides.
