Tour description provided by Viator

Experience the tranquil beauty of Beacon Hill Park on this relaxing horse-drawn carriage ride. You'll discover why this vast park is one of downtown Victoria's crown jewels as you ride leisurely past ponds and lush greenery brimming with colorful flowers. Throughout your ride, your experienced carriage driver will entertain you with tales of Victoria's past, present and future.

At your chosen tour time, meet at the corner of Belleville Street and Menzies Street, where you'll hop into your horse-drawn carriage and begin your relaxing tour through Beacon Hill Park, the oldest park in Victoria.

Your experienced carriage driver will lead you past recently restored St Anne's Academy and deep into the 200-acre (74-hectare) park, established in 1882. Hear stories of Victoria's past, present and future as you wind down quaint paths and enjoy views of tranquil ponds dotted with stone bridges and engulfed in lush greenery and vibrant flowers. You may even spot some herons!

Ride by the famous Empress hotel and Church Of Our Lord, established in 1874. Wind your way back through the historical James Bay neighborhood before returning to the carriage stand to conclude your ride.
