The garden was beyond belief and very worth the time in getting there. Our bus driver and guide, Shapoor, gave us a wonderful narration of what we were seeing. The bus tour of Victoria was interesting but I would rather have spent the time in the gardens instead of the 2 hours we had in Victoria. The gardens are the star of this tour and 2 hours there is not enough time. The only disappointing part of the day was the terrible suspension of the small bus we were on. It made for a very uncomfortable time on the bus.
I have gone on many tours with Greyline, but never have I had a guide as intelligent, articulate, or entertaining as Alex. He never stopped giving us interesting information about whatever was just outside the window. His vocabulary and diction (including word choice) was far above any other guide we encountered on our cruise/land trip. My only criticism is that I wish we had had more time to spend in Butchart Gardens.
Awesome day and the gardens really are a must see! Great tour guide whom really completed the experience with easy listening commentary and occasional banter throughout the day! Transport very comfortable with ferry offering stunning vistas across the islands. Overall tour delivered exactly as described with awesome service! Would totally be using for other tours if we had more time!!
On time departure... great first time experience in Turbo Otter. We had a great flight and the beautiful scenery was even more amazing from the air! The Gardens were lovely with their fall color, and the entire experience was so well organized and planned. Graham, who drove the bus to Buchart gardens, shared details about the area from his experience growing up on the island.
Great day out. Wanted to experience flying in a float plane and get to Victoria and back in a shorter time than the ferry. Plane was very noisy but great to have more time to visit Victoria, the butterflies and Buchart Gardens. All wonderful.
