The tour was outstanding! I learned a great deal of information from the on-board biologist. We found a pod of five orcas and followed them for almost an hour. I look forward to repeating the tour on our next visit to Victoria.
Everything you ever read about these gardens is true and then some!!!
I wish I could see them every season.

More more more!!!
Book 2 or 3 because you won't get enough.
We had a great time. Fiona was very informative about the whales and overall information of the area. We saw a number
of orca whales, as well as seals. Recommend it to all.
All went well except for being 20 minutes late on the pick-up.
Disappointed, saw no whales. Other companies guaranteed sightings of their money back.
Great commentary on the ride to and from the Gardens and bus arrived at exactly the right time. And the value for the bus and entry was exceptional.
Superb place to visit for a keen gardener, which I am. Could have happily spent a week there!
Tour was fabulous, very informative commentary and helpful staff. The scenery through Victoria and a different route home to the way was a pleasant surprise. Butchart Gardens delivered to expectations and more.
Driver gave interesting commentary to and from the gardens. Butchart Gardens was incredible!
Gardens were wonderful and the day was perfect. Had a great time. Just one hiccup was we did not get piked up at our hotel on time since they could not find it?? We called them from the desk and they did make a special trip to get us.. All in all it was good!!
I'm the kind of guy that loves nature. Sweeping vistas, mountain tops, I do a lot of backpacking and day hiking. I originally booked this garden tour for my girlfriend but I enjoyed it WAY more than her. I didn't expect to like it so much. I was expecting it to not live up to the hype and the expensive entrance ticket. The colors were magnificent and the gardens themselves transported you to another part of the world. I especially enjoyed the Italian Garden. I wish I could have spent more time at the garden to just sit and reflect. I did the Evening Tour so it was a bit rushed but still amazing all the same. I just wish it wasn't so crowded. Hard to take pictures. Overall was a delight. I would go back again.
We had a great time even with the rain. Our bus driver was awesome. Wish we had more time.

This was fab, yacht was just right for the middle and younger age groups. Lucky to see whales. Crew very knowledgable on wild life we came across and captain of ship in constant radio contact with other ships around to guide all to see orca. Captain very respectful to all animals we came across, seals, whales, birds, didn't encroach or trap the wild life, allowed easy escape routes if they wished to do so. Crew had marine degrees and vast knowledge, knew all about orca we came across. They hold recognition sheets on dorsal fins so knew who they were and from which group they belonged
Pick up place was confusing. In front of the Fairmont was very general. More on the sidewalk to the right of the front with a blue umbrella. Time was too short. Had to leave after only an hour in order o return to the ship. It would have been nice to have a departure time that worked along with the cruise ships. We had to take the 6:15 shuttle back because the next one is at 8:30. The gardn was beautiful though.
