    Your majestic horse and professional, informative and entertaining carriage driver/tour guide await you at the corner of Belleville Street and Menzies Street, next to Victoria's beautiful inner harbour and magnificent Legislative Buildings.  Upon arrival you will be escorted to your carriage where we'd be happy to take photos before you embark upon your journey.

    The Heritage Tour provides a glimpse into local life by travelling through the charming James Bay neighborhood, one of Vancouver Island's oldest residential districts.  Enjoy meticulously preserved heritage homes, including the birthplace of renowned activist, painter and author, Emily Carr.  As your carriage meanders along the Salish Sea waterfront allow the invigorating smell of the ocean air revive you and enjoy views of the snow-capped Olympic Mountain range in Washington State, USA. 

    This private tour will be personalized for you, with the right mix of historical information, local folklore and simple relaxation as you sit back and enjoy the clip-clop of your horse's hooves.

    We took a 30 minute carriage ride as a way to celebrate our 20 wedding anniversary. It was wonderful experience with a very cordial and knowledgeable driver. It’s a great way to see different parts of Victoria and learn about the city.
