Awesome trip and the gardens were the best I have ever seen. Do this tour and you wont be disappointed.
I highly recommend this tour. Our guide was knowledgeable, friendly, and willing to answer any question about Vancouver, Victoria, the Gardens, and the ferry. The bus was comfortable and the ferry was as well the food was even surprisingly good!. The Gardens are exquisite and not to be missed, and I think I could live in Victoria. All in all, a wonderful trip!
This was an outstanding day with Lauren, our tour guide. R/t hotel pickup is the best. And then when we were delayed on our return trip due to a ferry delay between Vancouver and Victoria, Lauren called and got our next day tour to Whistler moved to another day so we weren't exhausted by two very long days in a row. We will definitely book with Viator again.
Despite cloudy weather and intermittent rain, the tour was excellent and the visit to Butchart Gardens spectacular! The fall colors in the trees more than made up for the lack of flowers. It rightly deserves its claim of being one of the garden wonders of the world. Visiting the city center of Vancouver Island was terrific and while walking around the parliament building, one of the guards invited us in for a free tour highly recommended if you have the time. The ferry was surprisingly nice...shops, a buffet restaurant serving delicious meals, very comfortable seating...even had TV's airing the Dodgers vs. Cubs play off game! Our tour guide, Frances, was friendly, knowledgeable and lots of fun. This tour is a must do for visitors to Vancouver!
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.
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.
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
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.
Our tour guide driver Kelly is super great, awesome and knowledgable . She made my vacation worthwhile and really enjoyable. I rate her 10/10.
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.
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.
Great tour...the bus picked us up right on time, the driver and guide was great. I would definitely use Viator for future tours.
Josh was great thoroughly enjoyed our trip to Victoria, timing good, he was very informative and funny.
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.
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!

Best of all it was door to door pick-up and drop-off - excellent when you are on short visit and want to see lots. The tour guide driver gave a commentary as we drove and we had free time to explore on our own in the given time.
Don't miss this tour! I went on this tour in July 2016 and it exceeded my expectations. Our guide was very informative and funny. He made the trip fantastic! Be warned that this is a long day but well worth it, especially if you have limited time in the area.
