What to Expect:

At your selected tour time, meet at the corner of Belleville Street and Menzies Street, across from the Parliament buildings, where you’ll hop into your horse-drawn carriage and begin your leisurely ride.

Our Majestic Tour leaves from the side of the Legislative Buildings in the Inner Harbor, passing by the Royal British Columbia Museum, Fairmont Empress, Victoria’s oldest Church and the restored St. Anne’s Academy. We then continue into Beacon Hill Park, 62 acres of flowers, duck ponds and a wonderfully fragrant rose garden.

Our next view is of the spectacular Olympic Mountains and the Strait of Juan de Fuca. From here we meander back through James bay to the Inner Harbor, up Government Street to Chinatown and the Gate of Harmonious Interest and back through the Old Town of Victoria with its original waterfront buildings.

Your next breathtaking view is of the majestic Empress Hotel and our landmark Legislative buildings & inner harbour, ending back at the carriage stand.
