Discover the sights of Victoria on an open-air bus or classic turn of the century trolley bus. The 90-minute sightseeing tour with on-board commentary gives you a quick way to see the main attractions of this beautiful city. Even better --you can hop on and off the buses at any of the 22 stops giving you the opportunity to see the sights at your own pace! Victoria proves a gentle blend of colonial England and up-to-date Western Canada.
The capital city of British Columbia, Victoria is located on the southern tip of Vancouver Island off Canada's Pacific coast. Named after Queen Victoria of the United Kingdom and the Dominion of Canada, Victoria is one of the oldest cities in the Pacific Northwest, with British settlement beginning in 1841. The city has retained a large number of its historic buildings, in particular its two most famous landmarks, the British Columbia Parliament Buildings (home of the Legislative Assembly of British Columbia) and the Empress hotel.
The city's Chinatown is the second oldest in North America after San Francisco's. Whether you want to visit the major attractions, spend time shopping, or visit one of the many fine restaurants – this is the tour for you! During peak season one of the buses will be at each stop within 20 minutes so you can move quickly to your next destination.
PLEASE NOTE: The last departure of the day departs the Welcome Center at 4:00pm ending back there 90 minutes later. If you are planning to hop on, hop off, we suggest you start your tour well in advance of this time.
