Description

Be sure to read the Special Notes further down this page for important requirements and restriction.

Board your motorcoach for a scenic tour to the Saanich Peninsula and the breathtaking Butchart Gardens, a National Historic Site of Canada. After a short drive, you'll find yourself surrounded by 55-acres of some of the most lavish and lush landscaped grounds in the world. Colorful blooms, rare flowers and themed gardens greet you as you meander through the property over footbridges, passing cascading fountains and charming lily ponds.

Your 1.75-hour, self-guided tour gives you ample time to appreciate the splendor and to purchase refreshments from one of several eating establishments. You may also want to browse the well-appointed gift shop for souvenirs commemorating this wonderful evening.

At dusk, the gardens are transformed by hundreds of lights of varying intensity and color. This nightly transformation, known as Night Illuminations is as unique as it is breathtaking. The magnificent Rose Fountain, the centerpiece of these lush gardens, dances with creative lighting while outdoor entertainment accompanies the effects.

At the conclusion of your magical evening, return via motorcoach through downtown Victoria to port.

Special Notes:

This tour is usually conducted in the evening and sunlight/visibility will be limited; however, portions of the garden are illuminated with subtle lighting displays. For daytime calls this tour will operate in full natural light, so nighttime illuminations are not necessary. Due to limited daylight hours in early May and mid-September, this tour may not be offered.
