Beautiful and historic Victoria, British Columbia is known as the Garden City and makes for a perfect day trip. This scenic tour of Victoria features: a parliament tour, harbour cruise and a visit to Butchart gardens.  It’s the perfect way to see and do as much as possible in a short trip to the island. 
After picking you up from your accommodations in downtown Victoria you’ll enjoy a relaxing, narrated drive to a few of our favourite local areas. You’ll also take in some amazing views of the city and surrounding area as we head out towards the majestic Butchart Gardens.

This breathtaking 55-acres of gardens will have your jaw drop in awe of the colours and fragrances you will experience. In the springtime, enjoy the countless tulips, daffodils and hyacinths;  during  summertime, you can explore the amazing rose garden and much more.

Next, you’ll head off to see a different side of Victoria, as you arrive at British Columbia’s government buildings. The original structures, known as the ‘Birdcages’, were originally used for the Colony of Vancouver Island and continued to be used for the Legislative Assembly after British Columbia became a province. You’ll step back in time as you wander the halls of the Victoria Parliament Buildings and hear some interesting facts and stories along the way.

Finally, take to the water as we explore the harbour which functions as a seaport and seaplane terminal, as well as a cruise ship and ferry destination. You will learn about the First Nations territories, wildlife habitats and float home communities while cruising along the water with a small intimate group enjoying ocean views, and marine life.

At the end of the tour, our friendly and knowledgeable guide will take you back to your accommodations.
