After your guide picks you up, you'll start out by visiting Fisherman's Wharf. Have a quick look at the local house boats and possibly see a local harbor seal. Then, drive through the inner harbor and observe some historical sites, such as the Parliament Buildings and the Empress Hotel. Make your way through the historical downtown to Canada's oldest Chinatown and then to James Bay heritage community. Visit the birth place of the famous author and painter Emily Carr.
Afterwards, your guide will drive you through Beacon Hill Park (the largest inner city park), passing by the world's tallest totem pole and then towards the Lieutenant Governor's mansion. From there, you'll have the opportunity to stop to view the exterior of the historical Craigdarroch Castle. Next, enjoy a scenic drive to Butchart Gardens, where you'll have approximately 1.5 - 2 hours to explore. Following the gardens, enjoy a scenic country drive through West Saanich back to Victoria.
This tour is fully narrated with current and historical facts, as well as a few ghost stories too! You'll make plenty of stops for photo opportunities. Tour may be customized upon request.
