This tour takes you to wonderful Butchart Gardens, a true visual delight. In 1904, Jennie Butchart moved to her new home on Vancouver Island and began the transformation of her husband's limestone quarry into the world renowned Butchart Gardens. This botanical masterpiece changes frequently as the Gardens staff continually alters the grounds with the seasons. As you wander the Gardens on this self-guided tour, you'll delight in the sounds and smells of one of the Premier Botanical Gardens in the world.

Join the ranks of worldwide travelers that have journeyed far and near to explore this home of uninterrupted blooms from March through October. Delight in the Village atmosphere of Waterwheel Square, as you make your way towards the Italian Garden located at the mansion that was home to the Butchart family.

From this point you can head towards the serenity of the Japanese Garden or try to envision the Sunken Garden as the limestone quarry it originated as.

Visiting the Butchart Gardens is a must when visiting Victoria. You will want to be sure and visit their seed shop and wonderful gift shop before re-boarding your coach for the return to the pier.
