Day 1

Fly to Victoria, B.C. this morning by way of Seattle. Lunch is in Sidney, B.C. a lovely seaside town. Swing by Lolly Gobble, an English Sweets Shop full of old timey and unique candies.

At famed Butchart Gardens, in bloom for over 100 years, lunch is served in the original family home. Take your time strolling through the magnificent blooms, but don’t skip the gift shop! Hands down, it is one of the best in town. Pick up seeds for your own garden or that perfect gift for friends back home. (L)

Day 3

Gain a better understanding of Canada’s governmental structure during a docent-guided tour of the iconic B.C. Legislative Building. Afternoon Tea at The Empress is a must when in Victoria! In the stately Library Room, you’ll sip the very same tea blend the Queen of England herself enjoys with assorted finger sandwiches. Afterwards, the Royal B.C. Museum, consistently voted as one of the absolute best in North America is included. Renowned for its First Nations exhibit and collection of totem poles, it’s not to be missed.
