Pleasant trip and beautiful gardens

We arrived early and were able to fit onto an earlier bus and the change was handled easily and with a smile. Our driver was Adrian and he was informative with just the right amount of humor. The gardens were beautiful and when a quick shower went over us, umbrellas were available to use and drop off. We spent 3 hours there and loved every minute. It was September but the amount of blooms was phenomenal, including roses and begonias and dahlias. Gorgeous.

The gardens were great. Our tour guide on the bus to and from the gardens needs to find a different career.

Actual gardens was amazing but tour was inconvenient in terms of transportation from and to the cruise ship and timing was not well coordinated with our timing. We had to leave before the fireworks in order to get back in time. We also had to pay for a taxi to get us back to the ship on time. We will stick with excisions provided by our cruise line in the future.

Spectacular!

We have always wanted to go to Butchart Gardens and finally found ourselves in Seattle, so in the correct neck of the woods. Took a little two day getaway to Victoria which of course included Butchart Gardens! The bus driver from Victoria gave us a really nice tour on the way there. As expected, the Gardens were more than stunning!

We booked a shuttle bus to take us to Butchart Gardens while visiting Victoria. They let us change days due to rain when we arrived without any hassle. Bus was spacious and comfortable and we had options to disembark when we wanted to. We never waited very long to be picked up and the staff was very helpful. Great way to get around. Make sure you see the Empress Hotel while your there. Pick up was conveniently in front of Hotel and across from the waterfront!
