visiting Victoria on a cruise ship.

we are 10 in the group arriving on a cruise ship in the evening. We would like to hire a vehicle with a driver/guide.

Does anyone have any suggestions?

The places we would like to visit are the butchard /butterfly gardens.

Thanks

If you are only in Victoria for a few hours; I strongly suggest taking the cruise excursion to Butchart Gardens and the Butterfly Gardens. It's a 45 minute drive from the cruise port and you don't want to be delayed getting back and miss the ship sailing (although Victoria is a beautiful spot to be left in).

We've been twice, both times went on our own, using city buses. We're going again in August but unfortunately are making a very short evening stop so won't get to see the gardens this time.

After checking, the gardens are open in the evening in summer. Since it will be night we will do the cruise's excursion so we're assured of getting there and back. And bonus, Saturday evening visits include fireworks.

Thank you for all your replies. We are taking a chance but we are renting a private van with a driver and doing only the Butchart garden in Victoria.
