Although it was raining for our ferry crossing and tour of Victoria, the sun came out as we approached Butchart gardens. They are AMAZING and well worth the visit. Our Landsea tour guide was excellent, giving us helpful hints the whole day. This is a MUST DO tour and Viator made the booking so easy. Thank you.
That trip to Vancouver Island, especially our stay in Victoria and at the Butchard gardens belongs to the best things I experienced on my Canada vacation from Montreal and Quebec in the east to Vancouver in the west. If you have the chance to get on this tour you should do it. Our friendly driver and experienced guide found the right balance between giving us the most important information and just let us enjoy our trip. In addition to that, we had blue sky and sunshine all the time. A September day in Canada at its best.
Well worth it. Vicoria is a beautiful city with lots to see and wonderful restaurants to have lunch in.And Butchart Gardens were gorgeous inspite of the rain . Anyway we were never short of umbrellas to keep off the rain as both the bus and the gardens had plenty available
What a wonderful day out from Vancouver. Tour guide Downey, couldn't have been more helpful or informative. He made our day. Although it was an early start it was worth it as we saw the best wildlife (orcas) from the ferry. Plenty time for a wander in Victoria although not enough for afternoon tea at the Empress. We did a little extra trip to feed the sea lions which was a highlight for many but we would rather have had the extra time to explore Victoria. The afternoon at Butchart Gardens was absolutely wonderful. They are stunning and definitely a must see if you visit Vancouver Island. The entire day was worth every penny and we would recommend it unconditionally.
A long day, but worth it. While in Victoria we took a horse drawn carriage ride, which was not a part of this tour, but just FYI, don't waste your money. Butchart Gardens is amazing!
Butchard gardens was simply the most outstanding garden I've ever seen. Ryan our tour guide was extremely helpful as my wife uses a walker and he went out of his way to assist us.
FIRST CLASS FROM START TO FINISH, GRAHAM WAS THE PERFECT GUIDE SUCH A NICE YOUNG MAN WITH LOTS OF FACTS AND A LOVELY SENSE OF HUMOR, WE HAD A LOVELY DAY AND GOOD WEATHER, THE TOUR IS NOT CHEAP BUT WORTH EVERY PENNY. DON'T MISS OUT BOOK THE TRIP YOU WILL NOT REGRET IT.
Rene was a great guide and we had an excellent trip!!!!!
Absolutely beautiful. Victoria is a stunning and friendly city, not built out. As for the Butchart Gardens, words cannot describe adequately the beauty of the place. Although they are entering Autumn there were still plenty of blooms to see.
Even though this was a very long day, it was an amazing day! From the moment we were picked up at our hotel until we were dropped back off, we had a wonderful experience.Both driver/guides were friendly,entertaining,and very knowledgeable. This was well worth every penny spent!
Viator has done it again! I have used Viator many times and have always been pleased. The Victoria and Butchart Gardens tour was great, you just need to adjust the amount of time in each place. Three hours in the gardens and only two hours in Victoria. Land and sea tours are a very professional tour company.
We had a fantastic time. Our tour guide Dawn was delightful. She was knowledgeable and entertaining. She was also extremely accommodating to everyone. I would highly recommend this tour. Do not be put off by the long day. It worked out perfectly
The tour was very well organized and we recommended it to our friends already. We also liked our tour guide Will – he made the tour even more interesting. Thank you.
