    What to Expect
    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 Grand tour will pass some of Victoria's most famous landmarks, including the British Columbia Legislature, the totem poles of Thunderbird Park, St Ann's Academy (a magnificent 1871 Catholic school), and many historical buildings such as the home of renowned poet, activist, painter and author, Emily Carr.  Relax and enjoy the serenity of the beautiful 155-acre Beacon Hill Park with its stunning floral gardens, elegant fountains and natural landscapes. 

    Upon exiting the park, your senses will be invigorated as you travel to the Salish Sea waterfront where you will enjoy sweeping panoramic views, including the snow-capped Olympic Mountain range in Washington State, USA.  Your tour returns through Victoria's charming residential neighborhood of James Bay, allowing you to experience a glimpse into local life.

    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.

    The horse carriage showed up at the meeting point late. The upholstery was really worn out and a bit tattered looking. The horse was uncooperative so the ride was at a walk almost the entire time. I felt really bad for the driver who was very nice and friendly. We would opt to

    Victoria was the last destination on my 14-day Alaskan cruise. I had never been to Victoria and I have never been on a horse-drawn carriage. I decided to make reservations before our cruise set sail. I communicated with the company via email and they responded quickly,
