We enjoyed our hop on/off bus experience around this beautiful part of the world. The recorded commentary was informative and well synced with the sights and the additional live commentary was a pleasant addition.....worth doing.

Bus was on time, route was varied and interesting and the driver/tour guide was informative. They're not double deckers so you are just a little above street level.

Big Bus is just a block away from the Empress Hotel and we had a coupon. We should know better. While the 1.5 hr tour was OK, the driver's off-topic conversation and volume drowned out the recorded information being broadcast from speakers under the seats....More

Victoria is a city for walking. The streets are narrow, pedestrian crossings means cars are forever stop and go, parking is expensive and not always available. For those who are physically immobile or easily tired, this is the perfect way to see the city and...More
