I will start this review by stating that I'm not a huge aficionado of gardens and such, but can appreciate their beauty. With that in mind, Butchart gardens definitely struck me as overpriced and touristy. It was utterly swarming with visitors, so it was hardly a calm, peaceful environment. It was around $30 for admission, and it just seemed excessive for what was there. No doubt the place requires a lot of maintenance and upkeep, but even my wife who is more of gardener than I was not blown away.
