Vancouver to Victoria and Butchart Gardens Tour by Bus
Reviewed by: Ann B, August 2014
Trip to Vancouver was fantastic and weather was perfect. Compare 75 at night and 85 in the daytime to Houston at 95 and humid.
We took the Butchart Gardens tour to Victoria and it is a DON'T MISS trip. Picked up at the hotel, Scenic ferry ride to Victoria (had the breakfast buffet on board and got fantastic front window seat and a great breakfast). The gardens are everything advertised and more. Highly recommend the trip. Three hours in Victoria was also enjoyable and my wife liked the shopping.

our tour was most enjoyable as our guide Rob was excellent with a very friendly and entertaining personality.
He was most helpful in arranging a wheelchair for my wife and directing us thru the garden.
I would highly reccommend your tour.

We have looked forward to our Butchart Garden Tour for many months and it was more then we hoped. We were on schedule at all times and treated with respect at all times. Our guide was very informative and there were no surprises except the exceptional beauty of the gardens.

A great but long day of tour which we truly enjoyed sightseeing the city of Victoria and the Butchart Gardens! So glad we did this wonderful tour - very convenient to be picked up at our hotel and then to ride in the bus which got on the ferry boat to Vancouver Island. Although the tour guide tried to be helpful, we 4 Deaf people wished there was a sign language interpreter for us. We know we missed out a lot of valuable information during the bus ride. We did make a request in advance for an interpreter, but we were told that none of the tour guides can sign. In the USA, an interpreter would have been hired out of an agency to provide the services for the Deaf.

Outstanding tour. Victoria and Butchart Gardens were beyond my expectations. I wanted to take pictures of every flower. There was some much going on in Victoria there was not enough time to take it all in. Makes me want to come back and stay there for a week.
I want to commend our bus driver Michael. He went above and beyond his duties. My wife left her camera at the Steam Ship restaurant but did not know it till we were halfway back to Vancouver. Mike called the restaurant and verified that they did have her camera. Mike made arrangements with a co-worker to pick it up the next day and deliver it to our friends who were staying over an extra day in Vancouver. We want to thank Michael for going the extra mile. Thanks, Jack Werner, Baton Rouge, La.
