Recommendation from guide to do one part of walk twice to get emersive experience was spot on! Xoxo xo
Response from Host, Dec 2022
Yes, you must go back to see one of my favourite light display when its completely dark. Make sure to head back over to the Sunken Garden, the forest walk is magical. Thanks for the review and thanks for supporting my company ISLAND TIME TOURS. :)

Island Time Tours and Colleen our driver provided an excellent holiday trip to the gardens! The vehicle was clean and well appointed. Colleen was fun with lots of information about Victoria and the history of Butchart Gardens!
The transportation driver was the best story teller!
Lorraine_M, Sep 2019
The driver of the van who picked us up was new to the job this year, however it was like he was doing this for years. The best story teller we have ever had on a transportation on a tour. Very knowledgeable and friendly, clear with instructions and very passionate about Butchart Gardens and the family history. We got very lucky to have experienced him and his great stories. Keep up the fantastic job!
Lovely Time

Lovely day at Butchart Gardens. Shuttle service was excellent, lovely drive along the old highway, much more scenic. Shuttle was very convenient, driver gave very good information, as well as history. Very enjoyable.
Beautiful paradise

Walking through this beautiful creation was a dream and the fireworks show at the end was the perfect way to end our day!
Manicured and lovely
Traveling_Gramma, Jul 2019
Not a weed or dead flower in sight. This garden is taken very well care of by many expert gardeners. Beautiful presentation of all the plants, trees, and flowers!
Great service
Daniel_E, Jul 2019
The bus picked us up st the hotel on time and delivered us to the front entrance of Butchart Gardens without incident. We picked our return time and the bus was there waiting for us. We were returned to our hotel without incident. Easy Peasy! An excellent choice if you just need transportation and don’t want a complete tour experience.
Great option for the garden!
dracutgirl, Jul 2019
Driver was on time, polite and friendly. He gave us all a great history on the Butchart family and how the gardens came to be. Also great tips for local eats and attractions!
Thank you, Colleen
claudia_k, Jul 2019
Very informative. Timely. Convenient. No complaints! Comfortable 10 person van and Colleen was so considerate to let my sister (who gets carsick) sit up front with her.
Highly recommend
Elizabeth_T, Jul 2019
Prompt pick up at hotel- driver was very knowledgeable about history of gardens - gave us great info. We went when they opened & she suggested going straight to rose gardens to avoid crowds that would gather on those small paths later - gave us maps of gardens & best way to navigate. Return driver gave great tips of other things to see and restaurant recommendations!
Deborah_B, Jul 2019
Butchart Gardens was quite the experience, more than I could have imagined. There were many surprises along the garden paths, such as a carousel, a fountain display, a boat ride, and the rose garden was spectacular. I would not use Viator to book your tour, as I was lied to about my hotel being the place of pick up, and when I contacted the tour company directly, I was told that they had not received any information that I had booked a tour. But I made it to the gardens and had a great time.
