If you want to see Victoria, this is the best way. The Fairmont Express Hotel is the start and final stop, if you want to get off at any of the 13 stops there will be another bus in 40 minutes to continue your trip.

We booked the 48-hour ticket and upgraded to the harbor tour as well on our last day. The bus tour passes some amazing spots and all the drivers have some entertaining knowledge about several sights in the city. Highly recommend Gray Lines!

We stayed at the Days Inn Victoria on the Harbour. They had free parking and the walk to parliament and Empress hotel was 2 blocks. So I don't know about any public parking.
