My wife and I made a trip of a lifetime with APT and it was beyond our expectaions. Although we were the only ones arriving on the first evening in Victoria BC We were still greeted by an APT staff with a big smile. Amazing. Once you see Victoria and the Buchart Gardens no other place or garden can come even close to the colour and beauty that Victoria has. We were very lucky to have Zita as our tour director and Wayne our bus driver. Zita was knowledgeable and had a great sense of humor. Knowing us Aussies we like to have fun but she was up to the challenge and joined in. A tour director can make or break a good holiday. Zita made our holiday extra special. On saying goodbye to her just before we boarded the Zuiderdam cruise to Alaska we all gave her the "aussie aussie aussie oi oi oi" salute. Wayne was kind and attentive to our needs. Best of all he used his step ladder to clean all the windows so we could get great photos from the bus. Amazing. All the 'kodak' moments were told to us way in advance and many tips as well so we do not miss out on the moment. That comes with years of experience and a love of being a tour director. Thank you Zita and Wayne for making our trip a real trip of a lifetime. We have too many more reviews so watch this space.
All the best from Sandra and Alister.
