      The island of Victoria is very pretty. Is bigger than I expected. Getting there requires taking a ferry which is a 90 minute ride. The ferry has comfortable seating and places to eat and shop. A bus takes you to downtown Victoria which is another 45 minute ride, so he prepared for that. I didn’t know. One of the HOHO buses was down, so there was only one available. That meant a longer wait if you got off at a stop, so no one got off during my tour. There is a lot of construction, I meant a lot of construction, in Vancouver and surrounding areas and Victoria. Construction caused slight detours. Some of the “attractions” can’t be seen for all the trees and bushes to hide them.
      Overall, it was a good tour even though we didn’t get off. The bus stops for a few seconds for pictures.

      If you want a quick way to see many sites and visit a few, this tour may work for you. Don't plan on getting off at more than 3 or 4 stops as you'll need to spend a least 40 minutes (or double that) before you pick up the next bus. We found it a good way to determine where we wanted to spend more time so I'd suggest doing this tour on your first day. If nothing else, the pass to the Craigdarroch Castle is worth the cost if you enjoy seeing historically extravagant dwellings. The recorded dialogue on the tour buses is mildly entertaining and makes the road time in between sites go faster.

      This tour is not convenient for cruise ship guests unless you walk 20 minutes to downtown to redeem your voucher for tickets to the castle or bus ticket. The cruise pick up point is #12. The castle is stop #21. You are not able to enter the castle without your voucher which will have to be redeemed at stop #1. This makes for loss of time by 1.5 hours. Driver was rude and not so helpful. Overall the hop on hop bus tour was informative. Great without the castle pass.

      We ended up not even using our bus tickets. We waited at the first pickup spot and the bus was 45 minutes behind schedule... so we walked down the street and purchased tickets from a different Hop On/Hop Off bus tour company that was double decker and running more often. As we stood there waiting for our bus, down the street we could see that other company picked up 3 times. We did use our castle entrance tickets though. That is well worth seeing!
