I highly recommend this to anyone.10/10
The gardens are beautiful and we have not seen anything like it before even though we travel a great deal.
a day well spent. I would recommend this trip to anyone visiting Vancouver.
Great tour! Loved Victoria and Butchart Gardens. Our tour guide Lisa was very fun and knowledgeable. Especially enjoyed the gardens, so beautiful! If you are taking this tour please be prompt! We had one couple on our trip who were late at pick up, and also delayed us while leaving Butchard Gardens, Lisa had to go looking for them! This tour is timed perfectly to make the most of your time, but with a ferry to catch one late passenger can disrupt the whole day, so please be prompt and considerate both to your tour guide and also your fellow passengers!
Everything went off without a hitch. Our guide was at the hotel exactly on time for pick-up. It was a beautiful day. Each activity, from the ferry crossing, to Victoria and on to Butchart Gardens was wonderful. We had plenty of free time at each place. Couldn't have asked for anything more.
Everything went well on this trip. Peter was an excellent guide. He was very knowledgeable and entertaining. Only downside of the trip was that we could only have 90 minutes in downtown Victoria.
Victoria and Butchart gardens lived up to their reputation it was a wonderful days excursion
Absolutely recommend this tour as great way to get to Victoria for the day from Vancouver. Saves hassles, tunnel traffic, fares/tolls and parking issues. Best tour of our entire trip! Our young lady driver/tour guide (Samantha) was very best we have encountered. Bright, articulate, funny and cooperative. She knew her history and facts plus the best ways to maximize our on-foot free time. Superb driver. Other guides may be good too, but we'd actively try to pre-coordinate having Samantha as tour lead again. Kudos also to Landsea Tours (Chelsea) for pre-tour coordinations.
The tour was very enjoyable. The guide was great. Arranging the shuttle service from different hotels is a great advantage . All the drivers were very polite.The instructions were very clear.It was very nice that the guide allowed us to take another shuttle to spend more time in the gardens. Overall it was very convenient and comfortable .It is worth taking this tour.
Trip to Vancouver was fantastic and weather was perfect. Compare 75 at night and 85 in the daytime to Houston at 95 and humid.
We took the Butchart Gardens tour to Victoria and it is a DON'T MISS trip. Picked up at the hotel, Scenic ferry ride to Victoria (had the breakfast buffet on board and got fantastic front window seat and a great breakfast). The gardens are everything advertised and more. Highly recommend the trip. Three hours in Victoria was also enjoyable and my wife liked the shopping.
