Tour Overview

With this guided tour, explore Victoria, British Columbia, one of the world's most beautiful cities, in the best light imaginable! The world-famous Butchart Gardens are included in this luxury small-group tour.

Victoria is known for the stately Empress Hotel, the Parliament buildings, and the stunning Butchart Gardens, which are all located on lovely Vancouver Island. In Vancouver, you'll board a premium mini-coach that will transport you to the port for a magnificent 90-minute ferry voyage via the Gulf Islands to Swartz Bay.

A short drive from here will take you to Victoria for a guided tour of the capital. Learn about Victoria, British Columbia's capital city, which is named after the British monarchy's Queen Victoria and is known for its regal influence across the Inner Harbour.

You'll have more time to explore downtown Victoria on your own.

A trip to Victoria is not complete without a visit to Vancouver! Your tour will be ready to assist you with recommendations for the greatest restaurants, top breweries, shopping, and hidden gems, whatever your reason for visiting Victoria is.
