What You Can Expect
Drive from downtown Vancouver to the ferry terminal for priority boarding on the British Columbia Ferry service. The 1 hour 40 minute cruise across the Strait of Georgia takes you through the breathtaking Gulf Islands. Don't forget your camera for amazing photo opportunities!
Your first stop will be the world famous Butchart Gardens where you'll enjoy a truly amazing abundance of horticultural mastery. Being a private tour, you'll leave when you are ready. Most people take at least a couple of hours to explore the gardens (with time for tea if you please).
Then it is on to Victoria where you'll see the Legislature Buildings, Empress Hotel, Beacon Hill Park and more. Enjoy some free time to explore this fascinating city and all it has to offer. Admission to the Royal British Columbia Museum is included. Return to Vancouver via BC Ferry service for a late evening conclusion.
Please note: A minimum of two people per booking are required for this private Victoria tour.
This day trip to Vancouver Island was excellent. Our guide - Steven - went out of his way to cater for our interests. Even finding a lawn bowling club while we were visiting the Butchart Gardens. We were able to visit this later in the day.
Steven's advice on what to see and the time he gave us to follow up on our interests was about right.
The Butchard Gardens were special but again Steven's advice on how to see as much as possilbe in a short time was very useful.
Guide very knowledgeable and interesting. Would use him again. Gardens lovely but well over-crowded.
