Beyond Victoria


I am pleased to offer you this exciting adventure. Going beyond simply visiting Victoria, BC's capital city, I want to share with you the awesome life of Vancouver Island.

Our tour will depart Vancouver, bound for the coastal community of Nanaimo. From here we'll take in some mesmerizing murals in Chemainus, a former coastal lumber community. Then we'll take in the "city of Totems" as we visit the community of Duncan BC. Here you will have some time to explore the truly magnificent collection of nearly 80 totem poles that were commissioned for the community.

Once refreshed, we'll travel along the picturesque Malahat Highway, the islands extension of the Trans-Canada Highway before coming to Victoria. Here we will explore the history and connection to the coastal life as we tour the down town core.

Once our adventure is complete, we will travel back to the mainland and enjoy a dinner buffet on the BC Ferries.
