Victoria in One Day Sightseeing Tour

Your Victoria day tour begins at the city’s most famous hotel, the Fairmont Empress, where you’ll meet your tour guide and board a deluxe motor coach. Drive through the neighborhoods of Chinatown, Beacon Hill Park and Cook Street Village, and visit the Mile 0 monument, where you have a quick photo stop at the beginning of the Trans-Canada Highway (Highway 1). Continue your tour to Craigdarroch Castle, a National Historic Site of Canada, where you’ll have a one-hour tour of the beautiful Victorian mansion.Back on the coach, head to Mt Tolmie, just north of the city, for a photo op of the panoramic views of Victoria and the surrounding area, and then make the one-hour drive to Butchart Gardens, passing through the suburbs of Oak Bay and Saanich.When you arrive, enjoy a ‘tea on the knee’ box lunch consists of savory sandwiches, homemade sweets and iced tea (see sample menu below). Sit down in a reserved area of the gardens to enjoy your alfresco lunch, and then wander around the gardens at your own pace. A National Historic Site of Canada, Butchart Gardens is home to more than 50 acres (20 hectares) of flowers and other plant life from all over the world. Check out the Japanese Garden, Mediterranean Garden, Rose Garden, Italian Garden and more.When it’s time to leave Butchart, head just five minutes down the road to either Church & State Wines or Victoria Butterfly Gardens, your choice (they are next door to each other). At Church & State, tour the winery facilities and enjoy a tasting of some of its best Okanagan and Vancouver Island varietals. If you choose the Butterfly Gardens, take a behind-the-scenes tour of the tropical jungle environment, discovering birds, exotic wildlife like poison dart frogs and, of course, fluttering butterflies. Meet back up with your tour guide on the coach and head to your last stop, the seaside town of Sidney, about 16 miles (26 km) north of Victoria. You have one hour of free time to explore the charming town — known as Sidney-by-the-Sea — at your leisure. Browse the independent shops, buy a snack at the local bakery or wander along the picturesque waterfront (food and activities at your own expense). Your Victoria sightseeing adventure ends with the 40-minute drive back to the Fairmont Empress Hotel.

3 Hour Victoria Electric Bike Rental Delivered

Choose a start time between 7am and 4pm hourly, and the e-bike model you want to ride. We have two great models to choose from, scroll for a brief description of each. Then let us know where to deliver them. This could be your home, hotel, restaurant, park, parking lot or absolutely anywhere you are! We will deliver anywhere in Greater Victoria, from downtown to Sooke to Sidney. We'll show you how to operate the electric bikes, now worries though! It's super easy and we'll make sure you're comfortable with how the e-bike works and how to use it before we leave. Rental time allows for a half hour orientation. Then what you do and where you go is completely up to you! See everything and anything you want to see, go anywhere and everywhere you want to go. Explore and tour all of Victoria's historic buildings and sights, the Parliament Buildings,  Craigdarroch Castle, Christ Cathedral Church, Hatley Castle, Fisgard Lighthouse, St. Ann's Academy, the Crystal Gardens, Beacon Hill Park, and so many more! Make a round trip or just go one way. Coming into town or heading? Why not try an alternative to taking a cab? We can deliver to the Swartz Bay or Brentwood Bay ferry terminals, YYJ airport, Coho or Clipper ferries or float plane terminal. Then ride around town and do some exploring, taking in all of Victoria's lovely scenery first hand, finishing up at your hotel. Have a lot of luggage? We can take it for you and drop it off at your hotel when we pick up the e-bikes. One thing that is always a concern with bikes is getting a flat tire. Sometimes you get a small kit just in case, but then you're stuck fixing or changing a tire on the side of the road, difficult enough with a regular bike and even more so with an electric one. But no worries! We've got you covered! Simply give us a call and we will take care of it for you. On top of the delivery, pick up and hassle-free flat repair we also include a helmet, map, lock and pannier bag with every rental. E-Bike Models to Choose from: 350 CT - a light folding e-bike with 20"x2" tires. Has a 350 watt rear hub motor and 36v 13.2ah Samsung battery. Adjustable for a comfortable upright ride to fit anyone from 5' to 6'. Great for a nice city cruise, but it's even great for tackling the trails! 500 XT - a fat folding e-bike with 20"x4" tires. Has a 500 watt rear hub motor and 48v 13.2ah Samsung battery. Adjustable for a comfortable upright ride to fit anyone from 5'4" to +6'.  A super fun ride both on and off road.
