The bus driver was friendly provided very interesting information on the city of Victoria and the history of Butchart Gardens. Butchart Gardens was so very beautiful and I would recommend this tour to anyone visiting Victoria. The trip to the Butterfly House near Butchart Gardens was an unexpected bonus and well worth the 30 minutes we spent there before going on to Butchart Gardens.
This was my second time here and once again, I had a fantastic time, the flowers were out in bloom and the staff were awesome.
We thoroughly enjoyed our time at Butchart Gardens. Even the trip from downtown Victoria out to the gardens was fun and our driver very informative and entertaining. I'm not sure what more there is to say about the gardens that hasn't already been said by other reviewers, they are simply amazing. I think my wife may have summed it up best saying, "this must be what the Garden of Eden looked like".
Excellent service, both coming and going. Drivers shared interesting information along the way, but didn't talk too much. Very convenient to have tickets, maps of the garden, and guides to the flowers available as we got off the bus. Also appreciate having restrooms close to the bus stop pointed out.
Convenient and flexible. Se enjoyed it very much and were pleased to have the time to see the gardens our way and also to have a lovely dinner on the patio of the Dining Room, looking out on the gardens.
It was excellent. We thoroughly enjoyed the Butterfly gardens and Buchart gardens. Thank you so much for including the Butterfly gardens in our pass. I probably wouldn't have gone there if you hadn't included it. We absolutely loved Victoria and wished we had more time to see more of it.
The driver was very informative and the Butchartt was beautiful. When we picked up prepaid tickets, our vouchers didn't include the info about the free butterfly garden admission, a promotional for booking online, but it wasn't a problem and we received the vouchers. Butterfly gardens were ok.
Beautiful tour. Flexibility with bus schedule allowed us to make the most of our day. Ammenities on the bus were favorable. All went smoothly.
This was our second day at Butchart Gardens and we spent another three hours in order to see whatever we had not seen the day before - and of course we had to see the sunken gardens once more. The drivers were excellent. We also stopped at the Butterfly Garden, which was a big surprise. We have been to butterfly gardens in many places in north and south america, but the butterfly garden in Victoria is the most beautiful. It has the most diverse flora and fauna and a huge and varied number of butterflies - the largest number and largest size of blue morfo butterflies I have ever seen. It would be a mistake for anyone to miss the butterfly garden!
So glad we went to Butchart Gardens. We spent three to four hours there the first day, then hopped on a return bus in order to spend some time around Victoria for the rest of the day. The bus driver was terrific, telling us about the sights as we went along and the history of the gardens.
