This was a truly tremendous tour and well worth the money! The Gardens are simply quite stunning in the size and sheer variety of flowers, plants, etc. The city of Victoria is lovely and the people exceptionally friendly. A visit to the Empress Hotel proved equally impressive. Our Tour Guide Richard was extremely friendly and informative. I heartily recommend this outing! Well done!
A once in a life time experience. Our driver Amy was a pleasure to spend the day with. Amy was informative and added to our experience
We loved the tour! We were picked up at our hotel right on time. Our driver, Maryl, was absolutely terrific. She was fun and knowledgeable. We enjoyed the ferry ride, and really liked walking around Victoria. We had time for a nice lunch, shopping, and sitting by the waterfront. We loved Butchart Gardens. They were truly amazing. It was a long, full day but well worth it. We would highly recommend it.
It was one of the best tours we've ever been on. Our guide, Lisa, was superb--she made the long day a lot of fun. We had enough free time at each stop to do our own thing; this is not always a feature of other tours. The ferry ride, the tour of Victoria, and the Butchart Gardens visit were wonderful experiences. We would recommend this tour to anyone planning to visit the Vancouver area, especially if they have Lisa as their guide.
We had an excellent time. Warick was our guide and he was fantastic. I would take any tour they have to offer with Warick as a guide he is that good.
Brad,our guide was extremely knowledgable and helpful all day.His contribution to the excursion ensured it's
success.The gardens were as magnificent as we had been told and Victoria was beautiful.
We found the Driver of the Coach punctual, very approachable and friendly and very good at describing the areas that we visited, in Vancouver and in Victoria.
The Coach was very comfortable and roomy and the awesome trip was all we expected and more. We were thrilled with the amazing Butchart Gardens and enjoyed the many other places which we saw in Victoria. Also, we were very lucky to have had a lovely hot sunny day and the Ferry crossing to Victoria was calm and very clear, for photographs.
Sorry, I do not know how to attach and send photos by email.
Many thanks to our capable, knowledgeable and helpful Driver.

Long day, but the pickup and drop off at our hotel made it an easy trip. Enjoyed the free time in Victoria where we had afternoon tea at the Empress Hotel and still had time to do a bit of exploring of the city. The Butchart Gardens were amazingly beautiful. We had already enjoyed the gardens in Stanley Park in Vancouver as well as the Chinese gardens, but these were stunning. Good tour and our tour guide was informative and charming.
The whole trip was wonderful! enough time to spend in Victoria and Butchard Gardens, the guide-Rob-fantastic, great sense of humour, and knowledge, bus came in time, and we got back in time….
I definetly recommend this tour, Viator is very professional. Thank you!
Wonderful service - driver was great and very informative. Never would have been able to accomplish this on our own.
Our tour guide was the best (Jeff) and we took a lot of great pictures at Butchart Gardens. What a beautiful place that is. I'd go there again definitely.
Gorgeous! You have to see this in person. The ferry ride was beautiful and the Butchart gardens is phenomenal. I give the tour guide A++++++
Tour guide was very entertaining and the whole day wonderful.
Loved Victoria and Butchart gardens.
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.
