Great tour and awesome gardens

5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2015

Great trip and value, no worries. Picked up at hotel, well organized, our hostess was humorous but very attentive to her passengers. Butchart is an amazing experience and then the time in Victoria let us see the city and enjoy a leisurely lunch before returning home. Nice views from the ferry and very comfortable.
