  • Our tour guide, Joe was amazingly funny, knowledgeable and professional.
    The trip itself went flawlessly and gave us an amazing view of Victoria and wonderful Butchart Gardens, both sites not to miss.

  • Our bus trip to Victoria and Butchart Gardens was wonderful. We were picked up at our hotel in Vancouver and taken to the ferry. Our driver gave us many facts about Vancouver and Victoria. Once we arrived in Victoria, she told us about the sights and restaurants she thought we would enjoy. Unfortunately the bus had a problem while we were sightseeing in downtown Victoria. Our driver met us with a new bus and driver to take us to Butchart Gardens. We lost no time and we were very impressed with the problem solving of our Viatour excursion. The Butchard Gardens were magnificent. We enjoyed the day very much.

  • It was amazing!!!! Our guide was one of the best we have ever had!!! We forgot his name though. He was with us all day. He knew his stuff!! Victoria is a very beautiful city. The Butchart Gardens were absolutely spectacular!!! I had previously seen photos of them, but it does not do them justice. They are a must see for anyone going to Vancouver who enjoys the beauty of flowers!! We would highly recommend this tour. It was reasonably priced for everything you got!

  • We enjoyed and loved the Butchart gardens, just stunning, a must see for all. Plenty of time for other sightseeing, a great day, thankyou.

  • This day trip is great. Victoria is absolutely gorgeous. I highly recommend this trip

  • Bus was 1/2 hour late to begin tour. Assuming it wasn't the driver's fault, I have no complaints against the tour leader, but rather with the company. The way this is set up, our group only spent 4 hours outside of the bus/ferry, exploring Victoria and the Butchart Gardens. Not enough time considering it was hyped as a '13 hour day'. Aside from the late start, we also waited loads of time for one late passenger, and boarding and disembarking the ferries inside the bus the whole time, went out of our way to drop off people at the island's Chinatown area- as we passed our drop off point in front of the Empress Hotel and had to loop around and return to it to let the majority of the passengers OUT of the BUS! Frustrating day. Will never do a tour like this again, esp w/ this company. Entire visit to the island felt rushed, everything else was slow.

  • The gardens are beautiful. Our guide Joe was great.

  • Wonderful tour! Very organized and right on time. Bazel was an excellent guide and was very knowledgable and thoughtful. The gardens were incredible and should not be missed.

  • The tour guide was excellent and the time allotted for each stop was just right. It was a long day but well worth it.

  • Our guide and bus driver Brent was the best. He gave us a map of Victoria marked with information that we needed to know. He even had the time and locations marked when we were to get back with him and the bus. He was full of good information and ideas. Took time to drive us around or would let folks off the bus once we were in Victoria. We knew it was a very long day from Vancouver but it was worth it. The ferry ride was most interesting and scenic. Sitting on the outside deck was refreshing as the air was great. Being from Tennessee with its hot humid air, it was a pleasure to be on the outside deck. We thought the time allocated to Victoria and the beautiful Butchart Gardens was sufficient for us. I imagine if one wanted they could stay longer in Victoria but I would recommend an overnight stay. Brent advised us to eat on the ferry so we would have more time to explore Victoria. We appreciated Brent calling one of the other guides to meet us and help us get back to our hotel quicker as it was a very long day.
