    Tim was an amazing tour guide getting us to and from Victoria & Butchers Gardens. Shared lots of knowledge and history all with great humour.

  • 25-Oct-2022

    Our day trip to Victoria exploring Butchart Garden, downtown Victoria is such a wonderful experience. It is not possible to completely explore these places without a helpful tour guide who knows everything about the place. We were very lucky to have someone like Joe who was so knowledgeable and accommodating. Thank you Joe!

    We had a great day trip from downtown Vancouver to Vancouver Island. Our tour guide, Tim, was friendly and very knowledgeable. We enjoyed the history and information Tim provided. The ferry ride over was beautiful. We had about 2 hours at the gardens and another 2 hours downtown Victoria. We wished we had more time in downtown Victoria but knew our time would be limited when we booked the trip. While it was a long day, about 12 hours from hotel pick-up and drop-off, it was time worth spent. Highly recommend.

    Our tour guide, Tim, was amazing. He provided extensive history and was very informative. We wish we had more time in Victoria but knew our time would be limited when we booked this tour. We had about 2 hours at the gardens and another 2 hours in the city. The ferry ride over was beautiful. Definitely recommend, especially if you get Tim as your guide!

    Very good trip. Beautiful places. Could be better if you have time to stay one night in Victoria to have a complete visit.

    Loved this day! It is a long day of travel but the visit to the gardens and Victoria were well worth it. Our guide, Tim, was kind and helpful. I was very happy with the amount of time we had at the gardens and loved that going in October it wasn't crowded at all. Great day! Highly recommend.

    Had a great time! The Gardens were absolutely stunning and our driver was excellent. Ferry ride was also a lot of fun.

    Awesome but long day (13 hours!). Not much time really at Butchart Gardens (90 minutes), because of the time at downtown Victoria too, but doing both is quite nice. If you really want time at the gardens probably take the trip that focuses on that only. The ferry is interesting and ended up eating lunch and dinner on the ferry, the food is decent. Much of your time is spent in transit…driver Casey was awesome.

  • 18-Oct-2022

    Our tour guide Casey was great! He was on time for all pickups, Ferry appointments and reservations, very informative and shared much information of the areas we traveled through, helpful, fun and a great driver! We thoroughly enjoyed every minute of the Butchart Gardens Tour and our time in Victoria! Thank you very much!
