  • Great tour. I highly recommend.

  • What a place...Victoria and Buchart. The ferry crossing was great and the tour well organised, next time I’ll stay overnight because there is so much to see!

  • We didn't have enough time at the butchart gardens. If we spent 30 minutes more in the gardens and 30 minutes less in Victoria it would have been perfect. The guide Jack was nice to a point. He was weird towards me, kept on touching me on my arm and almost pinched my cheeks.I felt uncomfortable.

  • Bonne organisation, timing parfait, bus a renover

  • Would highly recommend this tour if the Butchart Gardens are on your bucket list! Had a wonderful day, the gardens were amazing and then enough time to enjoy Victoria.

  • The tour was great and our tour guide Herman was wonderful. I would have given five stars, but I think they should give more time to the gardens and lessen the time in the city. Otherwise, it is a great tour and I do highly recommend it!

  • Good way to get to Vancouver island and see the main sites. long day. great guide but no negatives to report

  • Jeff was one of the best tour guide I ever had. Being native to BC he was able to share both history.

    Loved it.

  • The guide was very good and shared interesting information.
    The tour was also very good and covered the sights and sounds of Victoria.
    There was enough time to see the gardens at leisure.

  • My intention was to discover Victoria and not to spend half of our time in Butchart Garden. Unfortunately we had only a little more than 2 hours for Victoria to have our lunch and to spend rest of time to discover Victoria. I wish there will be more tour offers without the Butchart Garden in order to spend more time in Victoria and surrounding.
