Love visiting Abkhazi Gardens in the spring and summer. Such a lovely garden to walk around and it's worth staying for tea!

Found this place by chance and so glad we did. Wonderful little garden with a very nice place for tea or soup afterwards. The story of the Abkhazi's is very interesting and only adds to the experience.

It is a rock and gravel path and some stairs at the cottage and also stairs if you want to dine outside of the house.
I am traveling with a group of 10 family members on a cruise to Victoria. We arrive at 1:00pm and depart for Vancouver at midnight. We would like to tour the garden and have tea. What transportation options are available?
