Here's what our customers had to say about Victoria Whale-Watching Adventure Parkside Hotel...

We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for all your help arranging our 4 day BC Ferry Vacation package in Victoria. Everything worked so well starting with you booking this little get away vacation at the Parkside Hotel in Victoria near the inner Harbour. Everything was great - ferries, hotel, just a great time. We had not used the BC Ferry system before but will certainly look at doing this again in the future.
