Butchart Gardens are among Victoria’s top attractions, with 55 acres (22.2 ha.) of blooming flowers, themed gardens, ponds, and more. This Butchart Gardens tour whisks you to the gardens from a central location in Victoria; instead of a fixed return time, you’ll have the flexibility to explore the gardens at your own pace and meet the return shuttle when you’re ready to leave.

Words cannot describe the beauty and experience of this garden. I was so glad I took the first CVS bus from Victoria and was there before the garden became busy. Be sure to allow lots of time to enjoy this amazing place.
