Sarah Morgan once remarked that"No city is further away from Britain - yet no city is more British," and you'll see why as you explore the beautiful city of Victoria.
Your journey to this charming city begins as you board a sea plane for a spectacular flight over the Gulf Islands and Pacific Northwest.
Once in Victoria, take to the streets and observe the British influence everywhere, from the architecture to the shops where you can hunt for fine china, linens, woolens and antiques. Enjoy a break in one of the dozens of tea rooms to savor high tea with scrumptious sandwiches and dainty cream puffs.
Observe the relaxed pace of the locals along with their British air of civility. The passion Victorians have for gardens, golfing and greenery is evident at every turn.
No visit to Victoria would be complete without a stop at Butchart Gardens, developed by Jennie Butchart in her husbands depleted lime quarry. The Butcharts also created Japanese Gardens that are not to be missed.
Conclude your tour by boarding a comfortable, 62-foot aluminum express cruiser for a relaxing ride back to your hotel in time for dinner. Sign up now and get ready to enjoy a day in the most British city outside of England.
