Beautiful way to spend the day! The Gardens were super special even if it was raining. I loved the fact we could get on 3 separate buses that were scheduled to return to Victoria. That way we had as much time as needed.

Even though it was not a long distance to the gardens from Victoria, for us it was a pleasure to not have to drive, just sit back and enjoy the ride. The commentary was nice on the way, the guide was very courteous, we appreciated this tour so that we could have as much time as we wanted before returning to Victoria.
