Traveler Tips


  • "Be aware that there is no time allocated to lunch, you will need to use either your time at the garden or at Victoria to do that." See review
  • "If you only have 1 day to spend, Id recommend this tour over driving and figuring out everything on your own, as you wont be able to be as efficient, carefree, and see as much in 14 hours." See review

Don’t miss the Butchart Gardens!

The Gardens were the highlight, however I would suggest that you explain the length of the trip for folks coming from Vancouver. I had no idea it would take up the whole day. Don’t misunderstand, I enjoyed it but the three hours of ferry rides were a surprise.

We were picked up at the Hyatt in Vancouver. Our tour director/bus driver Alex was excellent. Very knowledgeable and interesting to listen to. I would have liked more time at the Butchart Gardens, but I understand there are time restrictions with catching the ferry back.

Enjoyable day but a long one

With the Vancouver Marathon, there was a lot of confusion and incorrect information regarding the pick-up location and time, I think ojurs changed two or three times. We almost cancelled when we were informed pick-up time was delayed more than two hours. In the end, it all worked out.
