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 arrival to the gardens, your guide will provide you with a look into how the Butchart Family transformed the gardens from a barren rock quarry to what it is now. Multi-language maps help you conduct your self-guided tour of the colorful gardens.
You will later rejoin your local guide returning via Chinatown welcomed by the Gates of Harmonious Interest, and passing by Canada's narrowest street, Fan Tan Alley. Continue to the Inner Harbor framed by some of Canada's most recognizable landmarks, the majestic Parliament Buildings and the ivy-covered Empress Hotel prior to returning to the pier and your awaiting ship. NOTE: Order of sights may vary. Walking time and distance is at each guest's discretion. In the months of May and mid-August to mid September, arrival at the Gardens is in the dark; flowers can be seen closer to the pathways but not all the way to the back beds. The gardens are stunning in the evening when illuminated by thousands of hidden lights.
