Take a guided tour of Victoria on a British hop-on hop-off bus and visit the world-renowned Butchart Gardens. You'll combine two of Vancouver Island's most popular tours into one, with the option of taking both tours on the same day or on separate days.

You'll see the best of Victoria on your grand city tour, and get a unique view of downtown Victoria's shops, exclusive residential areas and scenic vistas aboard a multi-stop English bus. During your tour, your experienced driver guide will give you engaging commentary on Victoria's rich history.

Highlights of your Victoria tour include: 

  • City Centre
  • Chinatown
  • Antique Row
  • Rockland Flavored English Zone
  • Exclusive Uplands and Oak Bay Residential
  • Marine Drive, passing through the beautiful residential areas of Victoria with spectacular views of the coast and the Olympic Mountains

The highlight of the second part of the tour is the 1,5 hour visit to the beautiful Butchart Gardens, one of the most beautiful gardens in the world. Here you will see the Susken Garden, the Japanese and Italian Gardens, the Angalius Rose Garden, and the magnificent Ross Fountain, all linked by expansive lawns, streams, and lily ponds. Your time at Butchart Gardens is unguided, so you're free to explore at your leisure.
