1,468 reviews
A British Columbia visit is incomplete without a trip to Victoria, its stately capital. The midsize city, set on Vancouver Island, is full of lush gardens and ornate architecture, serving as a prime day trip destination from Vancouver. Here are a few ways to visit.

Bus Tours
Whether you’re visiting Victoria for one day or for several, a guided tour by bus lets you see some of the city’s most important sights, such as Butchart Gardens, in a relatively short amount of time. This is a convenient option for travelers interested in doing some sightseeing. Guided tour can be a cost-effective way to visit Victoria.

Seaplane Tours
For those visitors with an adventurous spirit, a seaplane trip from the mainland to the island is an excellent way to get a bird’s-eye view of British Columbia’s geography. One main reason for booking a seaplane tour from Vancouver to Victoria is the short travel time—one flight takes 35 minutes, as opposed to a 90-minute ferry ride.

Cruise Tours
Seeing British Columbia’s coastal islands from the water is one of the best ways to get a sense for the area, especially in regards to its marine life. Many cruise tours from Vancouver to Victoria incorporate whale-watching and sightseeing.
