Beautiful gardens with a variety of styles. My favorite was the sunken garden.
The gardens were beautiful and a band was playing in the front courtyard the day we went, so very nice!
Loved the gardens. The Rhodeodendrons were unbelievably beautiful. Such colors! The tour getting there was very informative and interestingly presented by our driver.
Cannot go to Victoria and not see the Gardens.
very good..bus was on time and the bus driver was excellent in explaining everything along the way and back to Victoria 5 star
Bus was on time, driver was very informative and even told some jokes. Driver pointed out many landmarks and of course the garden was beautiful.
It was a beautiful tour! The weather was perfect to go explore the gardens. The tour guide was prompt and the bus ride was quite comfortable. All in all, I would definitely do this again!
Excellent tour. Gardens are beautiful and not to be missed.
These gardens - even in the fall - are exceptional. So glad we didn't miss out on seeing them. With a flexible return time we could take all the time we wanted to walk around and stop and get something to eat. Had a wonderful day.
Comfortable, relaxing ferry ride. Butchart Gardens is glorious. The James bay Inn where we stayed overnight was quaint, and served very good food. The transportation to and from Butchart made it very convenient, and we learned a lot on the way there and back. Very worthwhile,enjoyable, and enlightening trip!
The bus tour from Victoria to Butchart Gardens was one of the best. Buses were comfortable, air conditioned. While driving safely, the drivers entertained us with interesting, humorous dialogue pertaining to what we were passing along the road. Before we knew it, we were there (or back). Mostly, I liked the choice of times we could pick to go and to return. That sense of independence meant a lot. Price was reasonable too.
Very accommodating and a perfect way to get to the gardens. Will use again!
Everything weren't very smoothly and timely. Commentary on the wat to the Gardens was excellent.
Gardens were beautiful.
A great way to see the gardens without rushing for a bus. Loved the fact that we had options for the return trip. An Amazing place!
Both the drivers and guides were very knowledgeable and told humorous stories to make the trip interesting.
So Beautiful! Beware it can be quite packed with other tourists especially if you are going on a weekend day or holiday.
We spent two nights at the Fairmont Empress with Bed and breakfast both days and Tea one afternoon. We spent one day walking around Buchart gardens. It was expensive but worth every penny. My daughter thoroughly enjoyed it. The only hitch was not finding out until we were ready to leave that the hotel would have sent a valet to help us get our bags from the bus to the hotel. It is a short walk but two older women lugging heavy suitcases had more than we could handle. The driver suggested that we walk to the hotel through the Rose garden rather than take a taxi. Next time we call the hotel.
Great tour guide on the trip to the gardens. Butchart Gardens is a must see when in Victoria. Viator tours gave us flexibility on how long we stayed in the gardens unlike some other tours I saw online.
