Never took the tour due to illness and cannot get a response on refund request. Will think twice about using Grayline in future.

Quit happy with the tour, flowers were spectacular, the gardeners allow no dead flowers to blemish the beauty of this wonderful garden..

Our driver, Dale was knowledgible and it was really fun to listen his words.

The tour of the Butchart Gardens was great! However, Grey Line contracted with CVS Tours to transport us to the gardens. CVS did a terrible job! CVS sold more tickets than they had bus seats, so we had to wait in line in the hot sun for a very long time for more buses to arrive. The young women who were manning the CVS ticket booth kept telling us a new bus would arrive in minutes, but this was just to stall for time. If Grey Line cannot provide the transportation, then Grey Line should contract with a more dependable bus company.
