Worth the trip but not enough time at the Gardens. It was a lot to do when we were not traveling.

Great tour with ferry trip and tickets included.
Butchart Gardens are a must see but you need a full day for there and back plus Victoria.
I little more of Victoria itself would have been nice rather than dropped for more souvenir shops but it is a pretty town and worth the visit.

Everything was on time from the moment our guide picked us up. We thoroughly enjoyed the Gardens and were told a lot of history and things about the city from our guide. It was a wonderful day.

This trip , although a long day, was worth it. The Gardens are amazing. My feedback would be that there is not enough time spent at the gardens. I understand the difficulty with ferry crossing etc but maybe the time spent in Victoria could just be a drive around and have more time at Butchart or do that as an excursion on its own.

Butchart Gardens is a little gem. For birders, it's an opportunity to view the tiny Anna's Hummingbird who resides there all year chattering and flitting among the small tubular flowers. Our tour was well organized wand led by a terrific driver/guide, Erik, who provided lots of information and answered every question.

Very beautiful and worth visiting. Only negative was that with the ferry trip back and forth, it was a very long day.

Pacific Coach provided a wonderful experience. The bus ride, ferry ride, tour of Victoria and Butchart Gardens was smooth and our driver/tour guide was friendly, shared a wealth of information and explained the itinerary very well. This excursion was excellent!

Be booked tour of Victoria is recommended as waiting queue for ferries is quite long and with
be-booked tour no waiting time for ferries as tours have priority.

The driver of Pacific Coast picked us up on time at our hotel and then did an amazing job of explaining points of interest in Vancouver as we drove around town picking up other travelers at various hotels and then making our way to the ferry to Victoria. He offered suggestions about eating on the ferry to save time to enjoy the beautiful Butchart Gardens. The bus is driven right on to the ferry and we then sit on the ferry for a relaxing 1.5 hour ride to Vancouver Island. Then we all got back on the coach and rode directly to Butchart Gardens and again the driver had an amazing amount of information to share with us about the Island and the Gardens. After the two-hour self guided tour of the Gardens, we were delivered to downtown Victoria, on the harbor front, for two more hours of leisurely explorations and lots of recommendations of places to eat and places to shop. We then all got back on the bus for our ride back to the ferry. Again, the bus drives right onto the ferry so we can ride top-side and enjoy the sunset and moon rise. Such a clear blue sky! The driver then delivered all the passengers back to their respective hotel. We were first on and last off for a 12 hour relaxing, amazing tour! I highly recommend this relaxing way to see Victoria - the price includes the Gardens admission, the round trip ferry ride, stress-free transportation and door to door delivery hotel service, as well as expertise advice from a local!

The Gardens are so beautiful. We had the perfect amount of time to walk the entire site and stop for a quick bite and shop. Needed a little more time in Victoria. Should have stayed the night. Our tour bus driver was awesome. Very knowledgeable.

The company sent out notifications and reminders about pick up location and trip date in a timely manner. The pickup was on time and the bus driver/tourist guide was wonderful and very helpful. Great service!

Very interesting. Although we spent 3 hrs or so on the ferry, this was extremely relaxing and scenic, not at all boring. Butchart Gardens was extremely beautiful, and quite large- a couple of hrs was barely enough. The shopping in Victoria was kind of tourist-y, most stores had the same items, at about the same price. But there were plenty of good places to eat. Had a nice trip.
