If you want to ride, instead of walk, this is a great tour to get an overview of Victoria. The stop at Craigdarroch castle was really special too. Lots of beautiful flowers, neighborhoods, and a park at the top of the city to see panoramic views.

Our city tour guide was great! Very knowledgeable and fun. We loved the castle tour and all it’s history. The walk to get the tickets was far and sort of confusing. Wishing the ticket exchange was a lot easier. Made for a huge day of walking and uncertainty of if we were going in the right direction.

We enjoyed the tour. We've been to Victoria before, and took a water "duck" tour. The nice thing about this tour-- it took us to places we had not seen before...the stop that took us up to probably the highest city view was very nice. The Castle was very interesting...loved to see the beautiful leaded glass windows, and all the furnishings. Victoria is just one beautiful place! Nice, comfortable bus.

It was nice to see the castle and learn the history. Perhaps tour could be a bit shorter.

We cruise a lot but have always used the cruise line excursion service before. We were especially worried since the cost was so much lower than the excursions offered by the cruise line. We were picked up without a problem when we got off the ship and had a very thorough, very informative tour of Victoria. Bus was very comfortable and guide was great! He stopped at lots of places not usually on a tour and really brought Victoria's history to life. One very significant event - when we were about to leave Victoria Castle, a couple from our cruise ship approached the driver/guide and asked if he knew where their bus was - they were on an excursion offered directly by the cruise line and had been left behind by the drive/guide! Since we were at the end of our tour, our guide offered to take them back to the ship . . . .something that I doubt would happen if the situation were reversed. We will always use this excursion service for future cruises.
