The ferry over to Victoria was beautiful. I recommend going up to the top outside deck. Beautiful scenery. It was very crowded when we went since it was Thanksgiving weekend. We ended up having lunch on the ship at the buffet on the way to Victoria. It really wasn't that much more than the cafe and you had a place to sit. Very good food at the buffet. The island had some neat shops and we watched the street performers by the marina. Our tour guide Alex was awesome. He was very informative and so helpful. The Gardens were beautiful. Amazing all the different flowers, plants and trees. Loved this tour.

A very nice tour! Alexandra was a great tour guide and she shared a lot of interesting information and funny stories. The time was dived very well between Victoria and the gardens and we enjoyed the trip very much.

I like this tour. We had a full day of excursion. The bus driver picked us up at the hotel earlier than we expected. He picked up all customers and we approached the ferry. There was a little wait at the pier,you could do some shopping there. They had numerous shops. The tour bus went straight to the ferry and all passengers went up the 5th floor. We had a good tour of the city of Victoria, had some time on our own. Then we went onto the Butchart Gardens, they were very pretty, different kinds of flowers and shrubs. After the tour, we were split up to a different car to drive us back to the hotel at 9:30pm.

My husband and I loved our tour. Our guide Janna did a wonderful job in explaining the areas we were driving through plus it’s history. She suggested a few restaurants in Victoria and took her up in Chinatown. As for Butchart Gardens the experience was beyond our expectations. It is a Must See
