Visit the world-famous Butchart Gardens and downtown Victoria

All visitors to Vancouver should take a day out to see the Province of British Columbia's capital city, Victoria!

One day isn't enough to see all of Victoria's attractions but we can hit the highlights together.

Start at your hotel in the morning and drive 30 kms to the ferry terminal. Crossing scenic Georgia Strait takes a little over 2 hours. First stop on the other side is well-renowned Butchart Gardens (admission included). After being WOW'd by over 50 acres of perfectly manicured lawns, flower beds and garden plots, we take a short hop to downtown Victoria.

Take in the Harbour boats, artisans, boutique shops and decide on several which attraction you will visit first: Parliament buildings, Royal BC Museum, Craigdarroch Castle, High Tea at the Empress etc.

If we can tear you away, we will drive back to the Victoria ferry terminal to return to the Vancouver coast and have you back at your hotel by approximately 8:30pm.


You will be picked up 1. 5 hours ahead of the scheduled ferry.

Planned itinerary includes docking time, ferry crossing, transport to Butchart Gardens and Downtown Victoria, transport to ferry terminal 1. 5 hours ahead of scheduled ferry and return crossing.

You will be dropped off approximately 13 hours after pick up time.

A Recent Review of this tour

Winston provided excellent communication and service from the time we reached out to him via email the very first time. He was prompt with all responses. He was funny in all of the communication we had while travelliing together today. His knowledge of Victoria was superior. There were 6 of us in our 60s on the tour and he paid excellent attention to each of us and made sure we were all happy with this service and his recommendations. He helped us with plans for the next day in Vancouver.
