I had never been to Victoria before and wanted a way to see the city that was different from the standard bus tour and I got it!! Our driver was Madison and she drove Ruby. There was a group of four of us ranging in ages from 30 to 60 and we all equally enjoyed the tour. We got the... More

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. We love to show customers those hidden parts of the city that you might not see otherwise and the tour through the neighbourhood is a great way to experience a historical part of the city that is a little more off the beaten track! Should you ever return to Victoria... More

We took a Carraige Ride through Beacon Hill Park. Our driver and comedian was Montana and her lovely horse Betty. The tour was the highlight of our trip. We has a mishap with one of the Carraige wheels, but we surged onward laughing and joking making the best of our situation. I can't say enough good about our experience. Montana... More

wonderful ride and entertaining information from our carriage driver, very comfortable and as we went in the early evening the blanket provided was well appreciated. very scenic route thru some of the historic streets of the early town showing some special architecture - well worth the time and the price.

We had the grandkids over in August, so we went with the carriage ride through the downtown in through Beacon Hill Park. Staff members were great & very helpful, as they informed the whole family of the historic items in the area. Yes, the horses were the treat of the day for the grandkids.
