Full description
Discover the beautiful and historic city of Victoria, known as the Garden City, on a guided day trip visiting the Victoria harbor, Butchart Gardens, and the Parliament Buildings. 

After your pick you up from your accommodations in downtown Victoria, enjoy a relaxing, narrated drive to a few of the areas loved by the locals. Take in some amazing views of the city and surrounding area as you head out towards the majestic Butchart Gardens.

This breathtaking 55-acres of gardens will have your jaw drop in awe of the colors and fragrances you will experience. In the springtime, enjoy the countless tulips, daffodils, and hyacinths; during summertime, you can explore the amazing rose garden and much more.

Next, head off to see a different side of Victoria, as you arrive at British Columbia’s government buildings. The original structures, known as the ‘Birdcages’, were originally used for the Colony of Vancouver Island and continued to be used for the Legislative Assembly after British Columbia became a province. You’ll step back in time as you wander the halls of the Victoria Parliament Buildings and hear some interesting facts and stories along the way.

Finally, take to the water as we explore the harbor which functions as a seaport and seaplane terminal, as well as a cruise ship and ferry destination. You will learn about the First Nations territories, wildlife habitats, and float home communities while cruising along the water with a small intimate group enjoying ocean views and marine life.

At the end of the tour, your friendly and knowledgeable guide will take you back to your accommodation.
