Butchart Gardens itself is a 5+ ! It is a must see if you’re anywhere near it. Grey line shuttle was also excellent. They’re friendly, handle the transport to/from Butchart and also sell entry tickets at the same price as the garden.

Liked the route that was taken - we made notes to drive back to some of the locations. Wish that it could have been a live host rather than recorded.

The tour could have been informative, but we could barely hear the presentation seated inside on the second level. The worse thing was that there was little or no air conditioning so it was hot and stuffy.

The gardens were beautiful and at their peak.
Only disappointed in that the park closed at 6:00 pm in July and
that dinner was not being served at the dining room

I've been to gardens, lots of gardens in France, Italy, Scotland, USA and Spain. This was, by far, the best one that I've seen. Stunning range of plants and colour, laid out beatifully.

I was unaware of how far away Butchard Gardens was from downtown Victoria, which is where we stayed. The Express Shuttle was easy to use and makes thee 40 minute one-way trip go quickly. With Shuttles leaving every hour on the hour, it's a great choice to see one of the most beautiful gardens in North America.

Terrific tour with great sound system! We saw parts of Victoria we would never have seen ourselves, particularly its beautiful parks. And from previous Grey Line HoHo tours in other cities, we especially appreciated the engaging tour narrative played over a high quality sound system. Be prepared to bundle up against the wind. It got quite chilly on the upper level.

I was under the impression that the shuttle also included tickets to the Gardens. It wasn't until I was about to board the bus that it was made clear the Garden tickets were NOT included. The Shuttle employee said they had been telling Trip Advisor to make this clear, but the TripAdvisor people had not changed their information yet.

A must see! One of the most beautiful places I have ever seen. The bus ride was easy and quick! I would recommend about three hours in the gardens
