    Stop At: The Butchart Gardens, 800 Benvenuto Ave Brentwood Bay, Central Saanich, British Columbia V8M 1J8 Canada

    This tour combines the best of both worlds: An overview of the magnificent city of Victoria and a visit to the world-famous Butchart Gardens.

    Your tour will take between 3.5-4 Hours and begins with a stunning drive along the scenic route to Butchard gardens, on the way we will show you the Lieutenant Governor's Mansion, Criagdarrow Castle and the best views on the Island on top of Mount Tolmie.

    Then we are off to

    Butchart Gardens what is one of the world's premier floral show gardens. Jennie Butchart began to shape this magnificent 55-acre landscape in 1904 from her husband Robert's abandoned limestone quarry. The result was the dramatic Sunken Garden, a reflection of the early 20th century beautification movement and an exceptional achievement in Canadian gardening history. As a reflection of their world travels, the Butcharts also created a Japanese Garden, an Italian Garden, and a Rose Garden. Through successive generations of the Butchart family, The Gardens has retained much of its original design and continues the Victorian tradition of seasonally changing the outstanding floral displays.

    After the visit to the gardens we are commencing our tour of Victoria, a place where the laid-back modernism of the West Coast blends with time-honored British, European, and Asian traditions.Where you will be exploring Chinatown, Government house, Empress Hotel, Inner Harbour and the Old town Bastion Square we will finish off with a look at Fisherman's Wharf.

    You'll have approximately 1.5 hours to spend enjoying the gardens, which are fully lighted for evening viewing.
