Overview

Victoria is Vancouver’s smaller, quieter cousin. Don’t let small size and lack of noise fool you, the capital city of Victoria has shops, museums, history, and restaurants to occupy you for days. Make sure to see famous parliamentary sights, the Empress Hotel, Beacon Hill Park and the Inner Harbor. This Vancouver to Victoria Overnight Tour Including Butchart Gardens will give you a comprehensive overview of one of Canada’s most beautiful cities.

You will be picked you up from your downtown Vancouver hotel by shuttle and taken to the ferry terminal at Tsawwassen where you board a BC Ferry bound for Victoria. As you cruise through the Gulf Islands, keep your eyes open; a variety of whales are known to inhabit these waters, turning your ferry ride into a whale watching excursion! Even without a whale sighting, the scenery throughout the Inside Passage is beautiful.

Once in Victoria, you are whisked off to the spectacular Butchart Gardens where 55 acres of pristine gardens allows the visitor to stroll the globe without leaving the premises: amble from the Japanese Garden to the Italian Garden and linger for a while in the lush and colorful Mediterranean Garden. After admiring the flora and foliage, your coach takes you on a brief tour of the city. By 3:30pm, you’ll have been dropped off at the majestic century-old Fairmont Empress, ranked highly by Condé Nast Traveler magazine for several years, with the next 24 hours at your disposal. You can then bake the short walk to downtown Victoria to see the sights.

The next day you are free to enjoy whatever activities you please. At 5pm the bus will pick you up from the hotel for your transfer to the float plane terminal for your scenic flight back to Vancouver.
