    Exactly what I was after

    I was looking for a 2 day tour to Victoria from Vancouver which included lots of sites and not half a day to walk around Victoria City. This tour fitted my requirements and we did lots of sites but I never felt rushed. Jack was a excellent... guide and very informative. Read full review

Thank you for your inquiry.

With respect to luggage, for Tours4Fun multi-day tours, two pieces of standard-sized luggage including one carry-on are generally accepted per passenger. The average luggage size is no more than 62 inches when adding the width, length and height of your luggage piece. Please be advised that these dimensions are just an average and may vary depending on local offices.

The tour bus will board the ferry as it will be the same vehicle used for sightseeing in Vancouver Island.
