We had heard good things about Victoria, but our expectations were far exceeded. Starting with our wonderful guide, Brandon, our day trip was fun and memorable. The city had a fantastic waterfront, architecturally appealing buildings, a laid back vibe, and flowers - so many beautiful flowers.

We enjoyed every part of our day - Victoria was beautiful and the Dim Sum in Chinatown was delicious. Butchart Gardens was amazingly gorgeous and very little in way of crowds. The timing of when we arrived (3:45 pm) was perfect and we had 2 hours to explore. We felt like it was plenty of time and didn’t feel rushed. Our guide was humorous, knowledgeable and easygoing. Kept us on time all day with a very helpful manner.

The tour is well organized and fun. Our guide is very knowledgeable, friendly, and funny, making the long drives enjoyable. If you only have a day to visit Victoria, this tour is a good option to see the major highlights while having some free time to explore the island on your own.

I bought the Victoria-Butchart Gardens Package Tour, together with my sister Mabel, for our sister Silvia who was visiting us, with her partner. They have thoroughly enjoyed the tour and also the tour guide, who was entertaining, knowledgeable and very friendly. My sister and her partner fell in love with Victoria and with the Gardens. The pick up and drop off , (In Vancouver), were seamless and everything was very well organized; all the schedule was followed as planned. Had I taken them to Victoria, in my car and via ferry, I would have never been able to offer this quality trip by myself! They were very impressed by Viator's efficiency and provider of such quality experience. We are ALL very GRATEFUL!!

We had a great time in Victoria with Greg as our bus driver and tour guide. His fish & chips recommendation was spot-on, and there was plenty of time during the day to explore downtown Victoria and the Butchart gardens. Pick up and drop off was smooth too.
