Excursion Description

Renowned as Canada's "City of Gardens", Victoria and its gardens burst into bloom year round. Your tour will include an introduction to the historic downtown and a visit to the famed Butchart Gardens.  On this excursion, you will:

  • Arrive at the gardens where your guide will provide a look into how the Butchart Family transformed the gardens from a barren rock quarry to what it is now. 
  • Use multi-language maps to help you conduct your self-guided tour of the colorful gardens.
  • Continue your journey via Chinatown, welcomed by the Gates of Harmonious Interest, and passing by Canada's narrowest street, Fan Tan Alley. 
  • Proceed to the Inner Harbor framed by some of Canada's most recognizable landmarks, the majestic Parliament Buildings and the ivy-covered Empress Hotel.

NOTE:  Order of sights may vary. Walking time and distance is at each guests discretion.
