    This is a typical itinerary for this product

    Stop At: The Butchart Gardens, 800 Benvenuto Ave Brentwood Bay, Central Saanich, British Columbia V8M 1J8 Canada

    Located on Vancouver Island, Victoria’s ‘gem’ is the world-renowned Butchart Gardens, National Historic Site of Canada. This privately owned 55-acre display garden is located just 35 minutes north of downtown. The visit won’t be complete without a stop in the Seed & Gift Store filled with unique gifts and souvenirs, or a snack or meal in one of the on-site restaurants. The Rose Carousel with 30 hand-carved animals will be sure to delight children (and adults) of all ages. See ButchartGardens.com for more information.
