Tour description provided by Viator

Craigdarroch Castle is one of the most famous sightseeing points in Victoria. Join this pedicab tour to see the landmark in a unique way! Your professional tour guides will take you to the Lt. Governor's grounds where Queen Elizabeth has stayed, past some of Victoria's oldest and largest churches, as well as inside the castle itself.

Craigdarroch Castle is an old Scottish baronial castle that sits atop Victoria's highest point. Built in the late 1880's for a wealthy coal baron, this castle displays the opulence of the late Victorian age. The castle is perched next to the Lt. Governor's grounds where Queen Elizabeth has stayed during her visits to Victoria. The stunningly remarkable gardens offer mountain views, a Japanese garden, Rhododendrons, a classic English rose garden and a myriad of West Coast garden scenes.

You will also visit Victoria's oldest and largest churches. The route passes by several character homes, offering guests a taste of Victoria's charm.

This tour is seasonal and only operates from February through to November.
