Well organised and excellent tour. guide was good.
"Tours4Fun were doing Butchart Gardens and that was one of the places that we wanted to see. It was easy to get through their website for online purchasing. But with the tour, a couple of things were a little unusual. First, our guide spent... most of his time explaining things in Chinese because I guess about 95% of the people on the tour were Chinese. He would initially say, ""This is something..."" and then he would go on and just keep talking and talking and talking in Chinese. They should tell people if the tour is going to be one particular nationality and maybe have somebody to speak English a little bit more than our guide there. Second, the tour at Butchart Gardens that we signed up for was too short. We felt rushed. They gave us the impression that half of the tour would be Butchart Gardens. We were standing about an hour and a half there, just that. So basically, at the end of the day when we were tired. I'm in a pretty good shape for my age but a lot of people if they're elderly, they're not going to make it. A lot of people simply sat down half way through, they said they were just too tired to finish it. The other thing was the insistence on the part of our guide Andy that we give a gratuity to him and the driver. Now we've gone on a lot of tours and usually it's just a standard practice that as you're leaving, you would tip the driver for service rendered. But Andy insisted that it would have to be a minimum of $12 CAD for him and $6 for the driver. He said that was built into the agreement. We never got a brochure or anything saying any of this. We went online. We got a confirmation and our ID number for the trip. But there was nowhere that I had seen anything that said there was a mandatory minimum for the gratuity. Butchart Gardens wasn't what I wanted it to be. We didn't spend much time there." Read full review

"Very pleased with the tour! Our guide (**) was just excellent and did everything to ensure our tour was successful. A few of the other reasons I enjoyed the tour: pick-up was on time, inclusions of ferry ride, stop in Victoria and good amo...unt of time at Butchart Gardens. Driver also excellent. Only suggestion I would make relates to the fact that the tour was largely for Chinese travelers and although ** did everything to ensure that English speakers were catered for, the one thing he couldn't do anything about was the stop for lunch which was at a Chinese restaurant (we didn't have the meal) which was in a place that had very little to offer other travelers. Is it possible to find alternative restaurant in Victoria??" Read full review

Very well planned tour. Butchart Gardens is like Garden of Eden. ** our driver was very informative even though we were only two couples English speaking.
