The bus left Victoria on Vancouver Island at 8.30am. The tour bus drove us by Mile 0, the point the Trans Canada Highway starts, and through the ritzy suburb of Oak Bay.
The Butchart Gardens was our only stop today. Unfortunately it was raining, so the gardens were not seen at their best.
Then to the ferry terminal at Swartz Bay. The BC Ferries ride took about 1 hour and 35 mins to cross to Tsawwassen on the mainland. Had lunch on the ferry.
From there the bus drove us to downtown Vancouver, arriving at our hotel around 4pm. The Coastal Plaza Hotel and Suites is the same hotel I stayed at in 1986, back then known as Denman Place Inn.
Tonight we had a sunset dinner cruise around the harbour, which brings the guided tour to an end.
We now have a few extra days in Vancouver to recover from the stresses of touring.
This is the view from our hotel room for tonight. Just gorgeous!
