Traveler Tips


  • "Be aware that there is no time allocated to lunch, you will need to use either your time at the garden or at Victoria to do that." See review
  • "If you only have 1 day to spend, Id recommend this tour over driving and figuring out everything on your own, as you wont be able to be as efficient, carefree, and see as much in 14 hours." See review

Excellent intro to Victoria

The tour guide was friendly, knowledgeable and humorous and made it a point to get to know each guest. The tour is excellent as it would be much more time consuming to go to these places by myself and without a car. I enjoyed everything about the tour including lots of free time to wander

Butchart Gardens in the sunshine, what a treat! Absolutely stunning spring flowers. The whole day was well organised and efficient, very good value. My only complaint was about access to the list of pickup points, which should be available before not after booking.

We were on this tour on February 1 2020. Our tour guide Andy was excellent, and the tour was a perfect way to see both Butchart Gardens and Victoria on one day. I highly recommend this tour.

Winter is not the best season for visiting Vancouver Island. Still, with an excellent guide and good itinerary, it was a great excursion.

Great garden but...

We absolutely loved the Butchart Gardens, could have walked it twice to make sure we saw everything. Victoria wasn’t as interesting, it might have been if we were staying nearby so we could do ferry trips or other longer activities but 2 hours was just long enough to think there wasn’t much to do. The Empress hotel was impressive and we enjoyed a drink there. But there is a long drive to and from the Ferry to the island and long wait for the ferry and long ferry ride. Not unpleasant in any respect but a lot of wasted time.

Loved this tour. I was picked up and dropped off at my hotel and did not have to worry about getting some place to get to the ferry boat. The ferry boat was long but enjoyable. The gardens were beautiful and Victoria was interesting to visit. My husband and I greatly enjoyed this tour.

Long bus ride for a shortened gardens tour.
Delbert D
, Sep 2019
The Butchart Gardens were spectacular even though it was mid-September. A problem with the bus which was beyond the diver's control made for shortened visits to the gardens and Victoria. Jon, the driver, did his best to keep us informed and entertained. If ever vacationing that way again I'd plan two days in Victoria, one at the gardens and one to see more of Victoria. It was along day.
