Butchart Gardens & Wine/Spirits Tour ITINERARY

The drive to Butchart is 40 minutes from the city, along the way I’ll give you some fun facts and history of Victoria and Vancouver Island.
A visit to the world-renowned Butchart Gardens is something not to be missed. This 55 Acres, National Historic Treasure of lush greens and colorful Blooms will delight everyone. Explore at your leisure, soaking in the amazing flora and fauna typically takes 1-1. 5 hours on average.
Following the Gardens, you will indulge in the local libations of your choice, crafted Wine, Cider, Gin or maybe other delicious spirits. We will plan this based on your group’s interest and availability. The small estate vineyards/ Orchards are producing award-winning bottles and they offer fantastic views to enhance your island experience.
This is an excellent Tour if you have seen the City Highlights or simply have an interest in a country experience over the hustle and bustle of the city. Participants in wine tasting must be 19 years old and have a photo id.
