The hidden gems of Victoria

I can pick you up at the ship, the ferry or the airport for a great trip around Victoria. We can explore the many beaches and viewpoints along the coast of the city and surrounding areas. On the way a quick trip to central Victoria to get an idea of where to go on foot and where to explore.

Then let's head out to see some of the unique beaches and lookouts that cannot be reached by bus. We can go "behind the Tweed Curtain" into Oak Bay , known as more English than the English! There are hidden gardens and eagles nests, beach tea rooms and authentic pubs. A couple of ghosts to hunt down and a few stories to hear about the history and quirks of the area!

It's easy to get around in my comfortable car and you are free to customize our trip based on your interests.

Get to really know Victoria and the unique town I love!


After pick up, an orientation drive around for less than half an hour. Around the coast we will stop often to take in the view or visit a garden, a beach or a place of interest.
A stop for refreshments at your leisure and at your pace.
