This 5 hour tour is an authentic day in the West Coast City of Victoria. You’ll be shown the best of what the city has to offer by introducing you to all the reasons why the people who live here love it here.
By bike, we’ll meander through Victoria’s quaint and quiet streets and if the weather is nice and you’re interested, we’ll have a pre-arranged and delicious organic picnic by the sea (which I highly recommended, by the way, because I’ve made a special arrangement for you with Nourish Kitchen & Café one of Canada’s Top award winning restaurants!). Alternatively, if you’d prefer to select your own eating experience at a local restaurant or stop by a local organic market along the way, that’s an option too. Just let me know your preference when booking.
We’ll also visit the “must-see” Parliament Buildings and become acquainted with Canada’s most famous female artist, Emily Carr, at Emily Carr House. We’ll take in the spectacular view of Haro Straight and the Olympic Mountains from Beacon Hill Park and visit Craigdarroch Castle – which is an unusual sight in this part of the world. Along the way, I will also include some additional stops for foodies. It might sound like a lot, but we’ll keep the pace leisurely and upbeat to match your mood. And there will be plenty of opportunities for photos along the way.
If this tour sounds like a ‘yes’, book now below and let me know during the booking process if you’d like to include lunch from Nourish Café or just the tour.
