That particular tour was through the ship.
We always consider ship's tours first, and then look at independent tours, and decide which best suits our needs. Since I walk with a cane, many times it is better for us to go independent, but this particular tour involved essentially independent time at Butchart Gardens followed by the tasting at the winery, so it allowed me to go at my own pace and it made sense to take a bus between places. I don't think it is possible to do this particular tour independently.
