Once we have picked you up from your hotel in downtown Victoria, we will begin the full-day guided tour of the city and stop off at some of its most famous landmarks. The tour starts with a relaxing guided driving tour around the city, which allows you to witness the true beauty of the area. You get to take in some of the most scenic views of the city while we drive toward the famous Butchart Gardens.
Butchart Gardens is a massive garden area of around 55 acres made up of a combination of natural and man-made landscapes. Here, you will come across immense natural beauty in the form of vibrant colors and mesmerizing fragrances. During the springtime, the garden is filled with the beauty of hyacinths, daffodils, and countless tulips. As summer approaches, you can enjoy the natural grace of roses and other beautiful flowers.
Then, we will take you to observe a different side of beautiful Victoria. You get to marvel at the architectural beauty of the famous buildings of the British Columbia Parliament. The original buildings – referred to as “bird cages” – were utilized in the form of the Colony of Vancouver Island. Later on, these buildings continued serving as the building for the Legislative Assembly.
