Great naturalist guides. Saw lots of wildlife. Can't describe how great it was to have all transportation for the day taken care of.
The gardens were amazing. We definitely recommend the overnight tour. 2 hours in Victoria is not enough time and it's a long ride back to Vancouver via the shuttle. We enjoyed the float plane ride back, so much to see.
Tour guide is very friendly, knowledgeable,time well control.
Great trip. Loved the Fairmont!
Renee made it even better with his anecdotes. A very well-planned day, we got to do it all: ferry, lots of time on our own in Vancouver to get lunch and hand-dipped ice cream, and 2 hours was plenty of time to enjoy Butchart Gardens. Highly recommended as this would be a trek on your own. Than you, Viator!
Kelly was a fantastic tour guide. Very knowledgeable, very polite, and very upbeat. She even suggested a great restaurant that we rated excellent. Just wish we had more time to roam Victoria, but the ferry ride and the bus ride to and from the ferry does take hours. We had good weather so that made for a very pleasant and thoroughly enjoyable day.
The tour was amazing. Ron, our tour guide was awesome!
This was our third visit to Vancouver, Victoria and the Butchart Gardens. But we hadn't been in the area in 10 years. Wow! The Gardens were so much more beautiful than I remembered them from a decade ago.
Josh was great thoroughly enjoyed our trip to Victoria, timing good, he was very informative and funny.
It was great !!
Great tour...the bus picked us up right on time, the driver and guide was great. I would definitely use Viator for future tours.
It was a full day, and a very enjoyable one. A wonderful ferry ride to Victoria Island, which was beautiful. The gardens were magnificent! Jeremy was a real treat to have as our guide. We highly recommend the tour to anyone.
Our tour guide driver Kelly is super great, awesome and knowledgable . She made my vacation worthwhile and really enjoyable. I rate her 10/10.
A full days trip can usually be exhausting, however, from the time we boarded the bus, our driver, Kelly regaled us with histories, facts, and personal anecdotes that made the trip easy. Butchart Gardens was Fantastic! Very easy to take in in about an hour and a half but with beautiful floral displays around every turn. Our late afternoon in Victoria topped off a great day as we enjoyed a great dinner at Bard and Banker.
This was an awesome tour - from the minute they picked us up from when they dropped us off! I'd highly recommend anyone to take this incredible tour and with so many good things, I have to say the float plane was one of the best! The guide was very nice and knowledgeable as well. Fun time!
Pickup from and delivery back to the hotel was flawless. We had been to Butchart Gardens in June many years ago, but did not know what to expect in early October. It was beautiful, and well worth the trip.
All six people in our party thoroughly enjoyed our trip on September 23rd. to Victoria and Butchart Gardens with Viator. Our bus driver/guide was wonderful, and went out of his way to make our day most enjoyable. We will certainly recommend Viator tours to family and friends. Thank you for a lovely day
We had a wonderful tour that included Vancouver, Victoria, and Butchart Gardens. Our tour guide, Warwick, was amazing and made the day so much fun.
I very much enjoyed the seaplane flight to Victoria. The Whale watching was cold and wet, the rain was the only thing I would have changed and you can't change the weather. It was all so amazing! We saw 6 whales, our guide was great! The ferry was late but it was still all good. I HIGHLY recommend this adventure if you are ever out that way! Totally worth the money!
The trip to the garden was great, so was the ride on the ferry. The tour guide Matt was very welcoming and friendly. Thank you for this great opportunity.
This was a fantastic experience !!! the gardens are magnificent and we just could not have enough of it. Despite of the rain and the stormy weather that day, we did not give up on any inch of the gardens. Highly recommended... don't miss it. Well done to the Viator driver/couch that managed the trip in limiting weather conditions.
This was a wonderfully scenic flight, on a beautiful sunny day! We spread our trip over two days, which was efficiently organised by Viator, and stayed in Victoria overnight.
In hindsight, we would have been better flying both ways, as the return trip is very long. This would particularly apply if it was to be done in a single day. There is so much to see and do in and around Victoria, and it would be a pity to have to leave to catch the bus/ferry mid afternoon.
Five stars to Harbour Air for the level of service and the great planes.
Five stars to Viator for their service and efficient communication.
Three stars for the return trip, although the ferry trip is worthwhile .... the whole thing just takes too long!
