Victoria & Butchart Gardens Christmas Tour

14 hours

Price Breakdown:


View the spectacular British Columbia coastline by land and ship, as the tour makes its way to Vancouver Island to visit the quaint city of Victoria and magical Butchart Gardens.

From Vancouver, it’s a short ride before boarding a BC Ferries vessel at Tsawwassen terminal for a 90-minute sail through the scenic beauty of the Gulf Islands. Get some fresh air and watch out for marine wildlife from the outdoor ship deck, just make sure to bundle up.

Arrive at Schwartz Bay terminal on Vancouver Island and continue through the country-side to Victoria, the provincial capital of British Columbia. Here you will be given a short introduction to the area where you will have some free time to explore the unique shops and cafes of Government Street and Chinatown. Stroll along the Inner Harbour for prime ocean views, and don’t forget to snap a couple of photos of the Victoria Parliament Building and the Fairmont Empress Hotel, both impeccably dressed for the season.

Continue to the enchanting botanical paradise of Butchart Gardens and the Magic of Christmas. Wander through a series of themed gardens, to view and experience Christmas lights, holiday wreaths, carolers, ice skating and more.

Finally, it’s back towards Schwartz Bay for the journey back to Vancouver by bus and ferry.

Considering the need to get to the ferry terminal, cross the Georgia Strait and reach Victoria and Butchart Gardens, this tour basically streamlined the process and everything was well taken care of. All what I had to do was sit back, relax and have the friendly tour guide show us around.
