We planned to Uber to The Butchart Gardens, but hired a guide with Regent Limousine we found in the parking lot who took us there, waited, then gave us a driving tour of Victoria. He dropped us off for a delicious fish and chips lunch on Fisherman’s Wharf. I highly recommend this stress-free method.
The 55-acre Butchart Gardens are spectacular. The site of a former limestone quarry, the wife of the owner, Jennie Butchart, willed it into magnificent bloom in the early 1900s. Her great-granddaughter, Robin-Lee Clarke, now owns the gardens, which welcome close to a million visitors a year.
