Tony, Isla (and her dad) were incredibly friendly and helpful throughout our trip. We made our way to Tofino and back which was amazing. Many people approaching us to ask about pretty Betty. Big thank you for making this trip happen!

Isla’s answer

Thanks you Nicolas, we thoroughly enjoyed hosting you for your trip and so glad you made it to Tofino!

We had the best time exploring Vancouver Island in Betty! She was so comfortable and reliable and got us safely from Victoria to Tofino and back again. Betty was equipped with everything we could have possibly needed, including cooking gear, utensils, cleaning products, cooler, awning, the best bedding ever and towels. Isla was so great to communicate with and was super organised. Would 100% recommend booking Betty for your next adventure!

We had an amazing time with Betty. We drove with her all the way up to Tofino. The ride went smoothly as we drove through the winding roads that lead to Ucluelet and Tofino. Take your time when going uphill with Betty.
In addition, we really enjoyed sleeping in the cozy bed. The car had all the amenities one could wish for when camping.
