    Overall worth doing.

    Garden was beautiful. Needed at least a half hour more to see it all. Stay in downtown was too short too because it was the only opportunity to eat lunch. Food on the ferry is bad.

    Smooth pickup at the pre-arranged Hotel downtown Vancouver. Tour guide David O’Brien was professional, competent driver, teacher, entertainer and all around good guy. Well worth the price! Butchart Gardens is off the charts! See the Sunken Gardens there. Cherry gelato at the gardens for the win.

    I traveled solo, I met many interesting folks on the ferry ride, had conversations with folks on the bus and in the ferry line while waiting for the ferry, and while it was a long day the garden was spectacular. The garden is fairly compact so seeing it all in two hours is easily manageable if you are reasonably fit.

    The Gardens were magnificent. Dan gave us all of the history of Butchart as we were driving and also made suggestions on those areas that were “must-see.” The visit to Victoria was enjoyable as well. We had lunch at a harbor side restaurant, checked out the Empress and walked the streets.

    Good overview of Victoria and the Butchart Gardens. Distances to cover for this trip are substantial and consumes a significant portion of the time for the trip. Keith was excellent at filling tat time.

    The entire tour was amazing but what topped it off was our guide Dan. He was so professional and courteous. On the long bus ride he educated us about everything we were seeing along the way and interesting points we’d want to know about Vancouver. Loved it! Oh right! The Gardens were gorgeous. Just gorgeous!

    Dan was a terrific driver and tour guide. The bus was clean and comfortable. Butchart Gardens and Victoria were fabulous. Loved the ferry. Long but worthwhile day We got our money's worth. Would suggest the driver ask noisy, chatty people to whisper. It was sometimes hard to hear Dan, and he gave an excellent commentary along the way.
