The overall tour was very nice. I would have liked more time along the way to take pictures. There were areas that were interesting, but not a stop to get on/off the bus. The guide was well informed.

The voyage was fast but the waiting room in Victoria didn’t have the same sleek presence. The organization could be better but mainly folding chairs, no view, poor instructions all lead one to feel that things are not well managed until you board the ship...More

Victoria Hop on Hop off City Tour was a great introduction to the city's main sights. We especially enjoyed the Mt. Tolmie Lookout views of downtown Victoria and the surrounding countryside. We were able to get to the Craigdarroch Castle with a hop off.

Highly recommended for a general city tour with historical narrative. Hit major locations (castle, Chinatown, Beacon Hill, marinas) hopping on and off the bus. Brian was really good.
