Take me to "Victoria in the Spring"

Jack and Elaine Wilson from Moose Jaw have been on 15 WestWorld Tours trips. Jack’s favourites are the cruises and Elaine prefers the land excursions. In April though they both  agreed that the tour to Victoria, B.C. was where they were going to celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary. Jack and Elaine’s family asked them what they wanted to do for their special day as the trip was their anniversary present. And, they said hands-down; they wanted to go back to Victoria where they’d been in 2005 because they absolutely loved it!

The Wilson’s departed on April 28, 2014 for the 10-day trip. “WestWorld treated us like royalty,” says Elaine. When they arrived at the Royal Scot Hotel & Suites in Victoria a musician playing the bag-pipes “piped” them in as the passengers got off the bus and entered the hotel. There was a bottle of champagne provided by WestWorld Tours and chocolates provided by the hotel for the Wilson’s upon arrival. Their daughter and two of their grandchildren joined them for the winery and cidery visit. They sang Happy Anniversary to them on the bus. Elaine joked that at the Victoria Butterfly Gardens Jack wasn’t thrilled when a butterfly landed on his shoulder. She commented she isn’t really a “flower person” but Butchart Gardens was beautiful. The Wilson’s explored Cathedral Grove, home of the majestic ancient red cedars, and the Murals of Chemainus. They also enjoyed a short ferry ride to Salt Spring Island where a large number of artists, sculptors and musicians live.

The Wilson’s anniversary date was on May 4 but she said they celebrated every day of the tour. The group attended their Farewell Dinner in Vernon in a ranch-style restaurant called the Historic O’Keefe Ranch. Elaine and Jack remarked that WestWorld Tours has always gone out of their way offering the best customer service and experience throughout all of their tours.
