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!
Dawn from Land Sea adventures was a great tour guide. Butchart Gardens was great!
We had the most amazing visit to Butchart Gardens. It is truly beautiful. The tour was on time, picked us up right at our hotel, and we made it to the early fairly. Victoria is also beautiful and very walkable. If we had it to do over, we would have elected to go earlier to the Gardens rather than walking around Victoria, but we are flower people and enjoyed each and every blossom. We were given the choice to spend equal times at Victoria and at the Gardens, or go to the Gardens earlier. Past ratings advised that 2 hours was more than sufficient to see the Gardens and it is, but we loved the tranquility and beauty so much that we would have enjoyed more time. I can't say enough good things about the tour. What an outstanding, comfortable way to go. Thank you!
My friend and I were quite pleased with out excursion to Victoria and Butchart Gardens. It was a long day, but I don't think it could be shortened. The food and food service on the ferry were OK, not great, but adequate. Our driver was super.
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.
Cheryl was an outstanding tour guide. Lots of good information about the area and extremely personable and knowledgable.
We were very impressed with our day. The bus was on time for pick up at our hotel. The bus was very comfortable. Our tour guide was "the best". He was very knowledgable, spoke clearly, and had a sense of humor. He was visible in the gardens and offered to take pictures if us. He delivered us back to our hotel in A timely fashion. We would use your services again, and highly recommend them to others.
Beautiful trip! Our tour guide Taylor was a charmer. I would have liked a little more time in the gardens. I can see how there is only so much time. Great experience!
This tour was exactly what we wanted and expected! The tour guide/bus driver (Warrick) was excellent and did MUCH MORE than expected!! Even though it was a 13-hour + day it went fast and was wonderful!! We would highly recommend this tour to anyone in Vancouver who is interested in visiting Victoria and the Butchart Gardens.
