  • Great trip, amazing gardens and very helpful and obliging staff.

  • We took the Prince of Whales Southbound to Victoria and stayed 3 days, then took this Victoria to Vancouver tour. PoW at Inner Harbor offered to store our carry on bags, so we dropped them off then headed across the street to the stand in front of the Empress Hotel to catch the CVS Tour bus to Buchart Gardens. We stopped at the Butterfly Gardens first get tickets at CVS stand or at gardens and it was well worthwhile, lovely gardens and incredible butterflies and insects. Then we hopped back onto a CVS tour bus for a lovely ride to Butchart Gardens, which is AMAZING! You can easily spend the afternoon viewing and smelling the roses in the beautiful gardens, and we had a delightful lunch at the Blue Poppy restaurant. Traveling through to the Japanese Garden, you end up at the cove where you will be picked up by PoW for the cruise back to Vancouver. The view is lovely along the way, and though we didn't really see wildlife on the way back it is a very pleasant way ro make the trip. You arrive at the PoW dock by the Westin Bayshore, where we collected our bags from the crew and found it easy to catch a cab out front to our Vancouver location. Enjoyable and worked very well for our family!

  • The bus to take us to Butchart Gardens from Victoria was centrally located and easy to find. The staff, both at the bus location and on the bus were friendly and helpful. A narration was given of what we were seeing along the 30 minute trip.The gardens were just outstanding and well worth touring. The staff on the cruise back to Vancouver were very warm and engaging. They paid so much attention to you that you would have thought that you were on a regular cruise ship. We only had one day in Vancouver and Victoria before embarking on our cruise to Alaska. This was a great way to spend that day.

  • The bus schedule from Victoria was wrong and we had to take a cab to the gardens. The boat ride was ok, but saw no animals and no sunset.

  • Great way to get the most of Victoria and Butchart gradens plus a excellent boatride to Vancouver.
    The Prince of Wales sunset Cruise was great. The crew Tom, Roman, Wilma and Cody did a great job.
