It was a nice taste of Victoria and Butchart Gardens. We were delayed leaving Victoria due to other guests arriving late which shortened our time 15 minutes at the gardens but nothing the tour guide could do about that. Brian was a very enjoyable guide.
Excellent tour, great guide. Sadly it rained at Butchart Gardens, but they were still spectacular. Much enjoyed the day, though long, and would highly recommend it. D. Gilbert
This tour was the successful final of my Vancouver experience. The bus pick-up and drop-off went very smoothly and our guide Richard was very nice knowledgable. The ferry trip was amazing but we were also lucky with the weather. Butchart Gardens were even in November a delight - the Sunken Garden is a must-see! Thanks for this very nice trip!
Butchart Gardens were beautiful ,especially for mid October. Victoria visit non exciting! Ferry ride was nice. Tour guide was very polite and helpful
Our tour guide Kalhad was very entertaining and generously offered to push my friend, who had broken her ankle, around Butchart Gardens. We were very impressed Kalhad's knowledge of the area. It was a great tour and I would highly recommend it.
This is a not to be missed tour as Butchart Gardens are so spectacular, Victoria was lovely too. Our guide recommended that you had something to eat on the ferry, which means you don't waste time at Butchart Gardens looking for somewhere to eat.
Butchart Gardens was very good. The Tourguide was very excelent too !! OK Victoria it is ok, but not so the highlight at my Vancouver trip.
The guide was very good. There was far too much time spent in Victoria and not enough at the Butchart gardens. The time in each area should be reversed.
Gavin was our driver and kept things light and fun with his stories and information on our trip to Victoria and Butchart Gardens. Lots of knowledge. The weather co-operated and we had a wonderful time in this beautiful city. Lots of time for shopping and lunch. Then on to the gardens. Over two hours to view the fantastic flowers and walking trails. Would definitely recommend.
Excellent tour. Butchart Gardens in particular were absolutely fantastic and we really enjoyed exploring Victoria. Irvin the tour guide was a fount of information, very pleasant and efficient. Thank you.
Very good tour in fascinating Victoria and the wonderful Butchart Gardens
Excellent trip. I would give it 6 stars if I could.
Pros: Abundant wildlife bald eagles, killer whales, humpback whales, whale watching tour guides were experts, Victoria is an excellent destination, bus tour operator to Butchart was friendly and informative, the Butchart Gardens are gorgeous.
Cons: Difficult to balance time between Victoria and Butchart Gardens an additional half-hour in each would have been great the morning check-in process could be a little more efficient
We enjoyed out day out.Everything ran like clockwork.The commentary was great as that was why we did a tour to learn about Vancouver,surrounding farmland,Victoria. The Butchart gardens were the best I have ever seen.
Great tour. Victoria and Butchart Gardens make a wonderful trip. Would highly recommend.
A wonderful trip from beginning to end. Our tour guide, Cory, gave us lots of interesting information in a fun and friendly manner. The ferry ride was spectacular, Victoria a wonderful, stately 'old lady' and Butchart Gardens beautiful. Would do the tour again tomorrow, but so much else to see in this amazing area.
It was a great way to see Victoria And the fabulous Butchart Gardens! Our bus driver was outstanding in providing us with great tips on what to see while in Victoria. It was a long day but much was gained.
A long day, but a lot to see. The BC ferries are first class, Victoria is a lovely and interesting city - great shopping, beautiful Parliament building, but the highlight was the Butchart Gardens - absolutely stunning, and we were given plenty of time to wander around.
A nice boat ride to Victoria from Vancouver along with a scenic tour around Victoria before heading to the wonderful Butchart Gardens.
We did not see any whales in the morning, but were able to see a pod on the way back from Butchart Gardens. My only critique is that I wish we would have had a few more minutes on the way back to Vancouver to whale watch. Although, had we seen whales in the morning, this may not have been such a big deal. The guides and rest of the crew were wonderful!
This tour was good - and visit to Butchart Gardens was really impressive - we could have spent a lot longer here. The day we went there was lots of small stalls in Victoria selling all sorts of wares.
Our guide Veronica was terrific. Flowers in Butchart Gardens were gorgeous.
Fantastic day. The crew are brilliant and very informative. We saw lots of whales on the trip out and on our return which was an added bonus. Victoria and Butchart Gardens are very beautiful places which made the day even more memorable.

Long day tour, about 14 hours. Our tour guide, Aubyn, is super cool. We didn't see much wild life during the ferry ride to Victoria. The Butchart Gardens is the best garden we've been, too.
Our tour to Vancouver Island was wonderful. It was long 14 hours, but well worth it. Our guide. Meghan, was fantastic. She was knowledgeable, informative and very witty. Victoria is a city not to be missed. After being shown the city, we had time to browse around on our own, After that, we went to the Butchart Gardens. The flowers and various kinds of gardens were stunning. At the end of the tour, we were tired, but so happy that we had taken this tour.
