We enjoyed a leisurely 45-minute ride with Hannah and Utah on September 1, 2018. Hannah was very knowledgeable and enjoyed Utah as well. This is definitely an activity we will do again. Lonna Tate

Janelle made our tour so much fun with a plethora of interesting historical tidbits of info. She is very Knowledgeable about all things in Victoria and her wonderful lilting voice and humor made the tour even better. Highly recommend asking for her as your guide.

Our Royal carriage tour picked us up at the Empress and wound its way through the beautiful parks and streets of Victoria for 60 mins. Our guide was super knowledgeable and we learned a lot. A romantic activity on our 30th anniversary trip.
