City and gardens both great

The city was very interesting and gardens were beautiful. I would give 5 stars if there had not been some confusion in making transportation connections.

Prima georganiseerd, reistijd naar Butchards Gardena viel wat tegen.

Dienstverlening uitstekend, persoonlijke begeleiding en goede info. Tijd in Victoria is wat beperkt als je om 13.00 al naar de Butchart Gardens gaat. Vonden wij wat minder interessant.
