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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
