Loved it.

The guide was very good and shared interesting information.
The tour was also very good and covered the sights and sounds of Victoria.
There was enough time to see the gardens at leisure.

We enjoyed this trip very much. We only had one day to spend in Vancouver and we're glad we were able to see and experience so much! Our guide, Hermann, was very knowledgeable and informative and his great sense of humour was a delight!

Had a great trip to Vancouver Island and Victoria. The Buchart Gardens were just amazing and everything I thought they would be and more. Two hours there was just enough - could have had more. The bus driver/tour guide was very good and able to give a good commentary and explained things very well. Would definitely recommend this trip.

I thought that the trip was all it was cracked up to be. I had been to the gardens prior and enjoyed it even the second time. Our driver was great. he was friendly, very humorous and i really enjoyed his personality and sense of humor. His name was Jeff. i loved the ferry ride both ways. it is a great trip and the viator was great. we also took the on/off bus and it was very nice also. vancouver is a great city. just wish i would afford to live there but almost nobody can, unless you are asian. good job viator. Jeff was great and made the trip very enjoyable, especially to me.

This was an amazing trip. Beautiful weather helped, but our guide was very friendly and gave us lots of valuable information. I would highly recommend this tour. Price was right and we were picked up at our hotel and brought back that evening.

This was a great day tour to Vancouver Island to visit Victoria and Butchart Gardens -- which were absolutely stunning! We wished we'd had more time at the Gardens and would have given up some time in the city of Victoria to stay at the Gardens longer -- but there's only so many hours in a day! We also enjoyed the ferry ride to and from Vancouver Island. Jeffrey, our tour guide, kept us all entertained with knowledge and a sense of humor sometimes a wee bit more of the humor...LOL!.
We highly recommend this Viator tour to anyone wanting to make a day trip to Victoria and Butchart Gardens...well worth the price!

We took this day trip to Victoria and the weather was beautiful. Our guide Andy was great! He was very informative all along the way to the ferry. The Ferry held 500 vehicles! you would ever know it. There were ample seating both indoors and outside. Plenty of food on board. Out first stop was a the gardens for 2 hours. Plenty of time to go through the entire gardens for the non-gardener. I am sure if you are a gardener, it would not be enough time. There were places to get food and gift shop. You could purchase seeds to take to other countries they package it to accommodate going through customs.
Then we went to the old part of Victoria for about 2 1/2 hours. Again, plenty of time to walk around, get a meal or just enjoy the beautiful weather on the harbor.
Since the ferry is 40 minutes outside of Vancouver, it is a 90 minute ferry ride and then another 20 minutes to the gardens and another 20 minutes to the city center, most of your time is spent traveling. However, We are a do it yourself kind of travelers and we would rather leave the driving to this tour group. Our driver, Andy was excellent and very accommodating. We would recommend this trip to others.

The tour was well organized; coordination of transfers between busses, ferry ride, and best of all the driver Mark who filled us with information on history, geography and current events. Butchart gardens and Victoria were self guided with 90 minutes to two hours to visit respectively.

A long day - 14 hours frrom pick up in Burnaby - but really worth it. The driver of the the fetch and carry first bus was excellent and gave us the best description of the geography and demographics of Vancouver ever - including his part Italian background and how the different cultures interact.

The main tour guide was also excellent - very clearly spoken and patient with some roudy passengers and children.

The ferry on the way over and back was also excellent - especially the food in the Pacific Buffet.

The gardens of course were beautiful - except a little early for the rose garden.

Victoria has some beautiful old buildings and being dropped near the waterfront was a good place to explore and enjoy. As an Australian - we noticed the statue of Captain James Cook and the great tribute to him as a navigator - more so than I'm conscious of in Australia - although we recognise him as claiming this part of the world for Britain.

The tour guide was great. He told us about Victoria and the Butchart Gardens with just the perfect amount of detail. He gave excellent info on the necessary details of getting off bus to go to the various levels of ferry and when to be back on the bus. The Gardens are an excellent site to see and photograph. We had just the right amount of time to see all of the Gardens. We then went to downtown Victoria and the Parliament Bldg is an ideal site to see.

From the very moment our tour guide Jeff picked us up at our hotel, we felt like royalty. We did not realize all of the amazing information we would learn about the city of Vancouver, BC and Vancouver Island. The ferry ride over, was even more than we anticipated and Butchart Gardens was breathtaking. We could not have had a more wonderful day or tour guide.

This was a long day but well worth it and there is no way I could have seen both the gardens and Victoria by myself. Andy our driver was really good and gave a very interesting commentary along the journey. Time is short in both places so eat on the ferry and save valuable sightseeing time. The gardens are spectacular. In Victoria I did the tour of the government buildings which was very interesting which gave about an hour for looking around the rest of Victoria. There was a museum of BC beside the government buildings but both closed at 5pm and we only arrived at 3.45pm so doing both was not an option. A great day out.
