A genuine feel for Vancouver Island and the Pacific North West

An extraordinary private tour along Juan de Fuca seaside out of Victoria, British Columbia and the peaks of the Saanich Peninsula, BC. Panoramic views and nature walks along the coastline of Victoria BC and parts of Vancouver Island.
If you like history, we'll visit the mysterious Fort Rodd and Fisgard Lighthouse, the oldest lighthouse in British Columbia overlooking the Esquaimalt bay, not far from Scottish baronial castle nestled by the sea and a lagoon. Reach the mountain top above ancient trees and enjoy an opportunity for great photography and to learn about Victoria and Vancouver Island history and culture. All my private tours are customized to suite your interests and walking pace.


Choices abound as we head up island with exciting stops at such places as:
Gorge Waterway
Hatley Castle
Lagoon drive
Lighthouse view point
The Malahat view point

A Recent Review of this tour

Elizabeth is a great tour guide. We had two different tours and she was extremely knowledgeable about the Butchart Gardens and historical locations in and around Victoria. Elizabeth had a very nice van to tour around Victoria. My wife, my daughter and I really had fun on the tours! We highly recommend her as a tour guide for anywhere in British Columbia.
