A man of few words, the trip was great. Love victoria and of course the gardens were wonderful.
Our guide was courteous, patient and accomodating. Getting to victoria and the gardens any other way would be foolish. Just getting on the ferry was worth the trip fee timewise. We saw people that had been in line for hours waiting a turn to get on the ferrys. Brutal! Very enjpuable. Thanks, Nelson and Kathie Hopper

Superb organization and tips from our tour guide. We didn't have to worry about anything other than getting to the minibus on time in Victoria and at Butchart Gardens. Might have liked a little more time in Victoria. Overall, a long but rewarding day's tour!
