Thank you! I just checked the Port Adventures listing again, and there does not seem to be any option with just Butchart Gardens. However, from the description, it looks like the "Short City Drive" part of our tour is just the narrated bus ride to the gardens that you describe. Definitely going to stick with the excursion. I would hate to be in Victoria and not see the famous Butchart Gardens. Would love to see pictures if you get a chance. Sorry for hijacking your trip report, Andrea. I have loved reading it!
