Great experience!

The tour was very lovely. Nice driver and tour guide, who gave us great insights of Victoria on our way to the attraction and back. They give you more than enough time to enjoy all the gardens and enjoy them. It's totally worth visiting. Great value for the money!

We walked through the gardens and gift shop for 2 1/4 hours. Lovely day! I visited in the summertime and enjoyed this fall visit just as much! Thank you!

We arrived early and were able to fit onto an earlier bus and the change was handled easily and with a smile. Our driver was Adrian and he was informative with just the right amount of humor. The gardens were beautiful and when a quick shower went over us, umbrellas were available to use and drop off. We spent 3 hours there and loved every minute. It was September but the amount of blooms was phenomenal, including roses and begonias and dahlias. Gorgeous.

Beautiful gardens

The most beautiful flower gardens! Pictures and reviews can’t do enough justice! An absolutely stunning array of flowers and gardens. You cannot visit Victoria BC without a visit!
Beautiful Butchart
, Aug 2019
Enjoyed it immensely in perfect weather, stunning floral displays. One of the best shops I have seen in my travels, huge variety of goods.
Beautiful Gardens....relaxing experience

The gardens were great. Our tour guide on the bus to and from the gardens needs to find a different career.
Transportation to meet tour
, Aug 2019
Actual gardens was amazing but tour was inconvenient in terms of transportation from and to the cruise ship and timing was not well coordinated with our timing. We had to leave before the fireworks in order to get back in time. We also had to pay for a taxi to get us back to the ship on time. We will stick with excisions provided by our cruise line in the future.
