Or, maybe you would prefer to travel to Butchart Gardens to explore the most popular attraction in Victoria followed by a sightseeing tour of the city; immerse yourself in 55 acres of the most diverse gardens in the world and see firsthand why they were hailed by National Geographic as one of the “top ten magnificent gardens” in the world; then, discover the history of Victoria on your sightseeing tour and learn about its heritage, architecture and colorful gardens while taking in its peaceful atmosphere.
