What you can expect
Ferry out to Vancouver Island to spend the day exploring British Columbia's lovely capital city on this private tour of Victoria. With a professional driver behind the wheel, scope out the blossoms and blooms of Butchart Gardens and admire the historic architecture of downtown.
Pick a time that works well for you and your group and arrange to be picked up right at your hotel. With vehicles that range from luxurious saloons to spacious minibuses, you can travel in comfort, whether you're travelling solo or have a pack of family and friends in tow. Ride to the ferry for the beautiful 90-minute cruise to Vancouver Island, keeping your eyes peeled for orca whales along the coast.
Once you arrive in Victoria, the entire city is at your fingertips. You could head straight for Butchart Gardens to stretch your legs with a stroll among the seasonal flower displays, or have your driver take you to the very best spot for elegant, English-style high tea. Pop into districts like Chinatown—Canada's oldest—and charming residential enclaves where locals flock to bohemian boutiques and cool coffee shops. Check out the exhibits of the Royal British Columbia Museum, visit the grand, Gothic interiors of Craigdarrock Castle, or make your way to Beacon Hill Park for a view of the waterfront before heading back to the terminal for your return ferry to Vancouver.
