Great day out; beautiful gardens.

A great day visiting the beautiful gardens and Victoria. Our guide was attentive and knowledgeable. Be prepared for a long day out and if you want a quicker return journey back to Vancouver have a look at seaplane options.

Wonderful opportunity to spend a day in Victoria with a few hours inside beautiful Butchard Gardens with this tour operator. It is a full 13 hour day but Meghan (our tour guide/driver) made it perfect. Viator has a similar slightly shorter tour listed, but I'm so glad we picked this one based on great reviews. If you only have a day to spare, don't hesitate to book this tour, as every little detail it taken care of: from getting the priority boarding on the ferry to excellent restaurant recommendations from Meghan while you're there. Little tip: take advantage of happy hour (starts at 4pm) in most restaurants. Timing of the tour departure back to Vancouver was perfect for it too. Great day in Victoria and well organized! Thank you Meghan and Discover Canada Tours!

The gardens were absolutely stunning, every variety of flowering and non-flowering plant imaginable. Our guide, Ian, was great for our entire day, very informative and personable. The ferry ride was interesting as well as many places on Victoria Island. Great fun but just prepare yourself for a long day. We left at 8:15 am got back to Vancouver about 9:00 pm.

Thank you for travelling with us and Ian to Victoria. Although it is a long day - with so much to see and do, it typically goes by quite fast. We agree the Butchart Gardens are stunning and worth the visit. We are so pleased to hear you enjoyed travelling with Ian. He is a fantastic guide and we are lucky to have him as part of our team. Thanks again for travelling with us.

Trip to Victoria is really worth it. Butchart Garden is amazing and Victoria downtown is beautiful. The Ferry also gives you a chance to appreciate the sea and on our way back we enjoyed a great sun-set view. Really recommend this trip to anyone.

Très belle excursion ! Le guide Joe était professionnel et sympathique nous a bien renseigné ! Le van était confortable, le voyage en ferry , la visite des jardins Butchart et le centre ville était super ! J aurais bien aimé que la durée de la visite des jardins Butchart soit plus longue ! Ce n est pas suffisant 1h30 pour le visiter

Merci Salima pour votre avis et vos 5 étoiles. Nous sommes ravis de lire que votre excursion à Victoria était fantastique et que notre guide Joe ait répondu à vos attentes. Merci encore à nouveau pour votre avis et espérons vous avoir à nouveau sur l'un de nos tours, peut-être une excursion de deux jours à Victoria.
