Overview of your Victoria tour:

Victoria's historic architecture represents a city that values it's past as much as it's future. As the international gateway to "my favourite island in the pacific", the cosmopolitan yet charming city reflects it's origins like a beacon. This walking/driving excursion will take us around cobblestone streets lined with heritage buildings that reveal a rich past. The timeless charm of these historical buildings is more than a tour ~ it's an exploration of hidden ceilings, masterful architecture, stained glass, and an invitation to connect with a bygone era. A city that invested in bricks and mortar that has gracefully evolved over time. Listen to the intriguing stories of the architectural gems from street corners and winding roads that reveal a chapter from the city's rich past. So, let the wheels turn, and the journey will unfold. It would be my pleasure to welcome you for an amazing day of sight-seeing Victoria's historical gems.
