Full description
Begin your journey with pickup from downtown Vancouver and Richmond hotels before traveling to the BC Ferries’ terminal. Driving directly onto the ship, relax on this scenic 1.5-hour coastal sail through the Southern Gulf Islands before arriving on Vancouver Island. After a short drive to Victoria, enjoy 2.5 hours free time to explore downtown. In the Inner Harbour, see the famous Empress Hotel and the BC Parliament Buildings. Walk up Government Street and marvel at the Victorian storefronts decorated for the holidays. Stop at historic Chinatown, featuring Fan Tan Alley, Canada’s narrowest commercial street. After lunch, board the bus once again and travel to the famous Butchart Gardens for their Magic of Christmas display. Arriving as the sun sets, experience 55 acres of foliage illuminated by festive and vibrant lights. With their 12 Days of Christmas theme, feel the holiday season come alive as you wander through the gardens and encounter each scene from the song. Then enjoy carolers and hot chocolate back in the main plaza. Finish the tour with a return sail to Vancouver and drop-off at your accommodation.
