What a fabulous attraction! As an avid gardener, I could have spent days meandering through the exquisite gardens!
It was convenient to have reasonably priced and comfortable coach transportation from downtown Victoria to the Gardens, and the knowledgeable commentary of our drivers added to our enjoyment.
One of our party had to cancel, and the agent at the booking center was helpful and polite.
I have just looked up the cities we will dock at during on our next cruise, because we intend to use Viator again. Based on our experience in Victoria, I would say that Viator is a top notch tour company.
This was far and away the BEST exhibit I've seen anywhere. Even with crowd and heat we had a perfect time
We had the flexibility to choose the time we wanted to leave the gardens which was a real asset...we didn't feel rushed at all. Yet we were secure that our transportation would be there when we wanted to return to Victoria.What a spectacular site! I've encouraged many others to visit whenever they have the opportunity.
Beautiful site, we got to try the tea-party at the restaurant and wished we came on one of the night light showings or the fireworks show because it would've been beautiful. This is a must see when in VIctoria whether you like flowers or not, I think there Is something for everybody!
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!
