We had only the morning before catching our ferry and this was a great way to see a lot in a short period of thine. The Empress Hotel and the castle were very interesting and beautiful. Our driver was very informative and amusing. A few hours well spent.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2015

Wonderful tour that took us through all the different parts of town and even outside Victoria. We had been on a city tour to Victoria previously and expected to see the same things as our previous tour three years ago. We were greatly surprised by the depth of this tour. The driver, who was our tour guide was very proud of his city and very informative. My wife and I would highly recommend this tour to all.

This is a must do tour as it gives you a very good idea of the layout of the city and it's many attractions. The driver provided great commentary and overall it was a wonderful tour.

It was a nice overall view of the area. The castle was crowded and less than exciting, but that seems to be a standard tourist site of the city.

Quick bus ride through the city. One stop at Mt. Tolme. The rest was a high speed drive past way too much.

We expected to board a bus or shuttle from your company at the pier to start the tour. No where did it state on the tour description that we had to pick it up in town. Then having to find out that the name Viator is no longer the tour name. We went to the address listed on the tour sheet, only to be given directions to find the right location. Needless to say we missed the assigned tour time. Had to wait an hour for the next one, which left little time to tour the down town area. Tour of the town was o.k.

Enjoyed the tour . There was some confusion at the start where to report for the bus but that was soon sorted out thankfully . Everything else went off well !


2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better July 2013

It was a nice sightseeing tour but it was more of an architectural tour passing by private neighborhood houses instead or public interesting places. I would have liked to pass in front of the "castle" and receive more information of the city than of the owners of houses...
