Welcome to my city

Ever wonder where the locals hangout, where we like to walk in Victoria, British Columbia and on Vancouver Island? Where we like to eat, have a drink, and shop? I will take you to beautiful neighbourhoods, harbour walkways, and secret gardens that I love and that are less frequented by tourists.

The beauty of Victoria, BC Inner Harbour is splendid as are the snow capped mountains across the Juan Da Fuca Strait. In this private tour of Victoria, you will visit special historical streets, and narrow alley ways of shops, in the Oldest China Town in Canada, and in the heart of Victoria. Discover my favourite park, Beacon Hill, with the tallest totem pole in the world. We will visit small marinas with floating houses, walk along a breakwater wall, and take a seaside drive to Government House, where I often go walking on the stunning grounds. All my tours of Victoria, are flexible to suite your interests and places where you may want to eat and shop. All at your pace.


Our adventure will begin with a drive all along the coastal neighbourhoods, and points of attraction like Beacon Hill park , Fisherman's wharf, the Inner harbour historical streets. Wherever we go, we can stop where you would like for photos, a walk, food, and shopping.

All my tours are personalized to meet your needs and interests. We go at your pace.
