Well organized, travel time to Butchards Gardena was a bit disappointing.

Excellent service, personal guidance and good information. Time in Victoria is a bit limited if you go to the Butchart Gardens at 13.00. We found it a little less interesting.

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.
