An ideal day trip to Vancouver Island

The Chuck Scott trip to Vancouver Island was the ideal addition to our trip through the Rockies. Chuck is a friendly, reliable guide, with extensive knowledge and a good sense of humor. We enjoyed the day with him - the tour is highly recommended.

We had a group of 4 ladies we had the best guide, very informative.

I would recommend this tour to go see the vineyards, our guide was Cam. This guy loves the area the job and you can engage in good conversations with him.

We come from a wine country (central California), so it was fun and interesting learning about the different grapes and climate. A pretty ride too.

Our tour guide, Amanda, was great! She was engaging and personable, and made for a wonderful experience!
