If they had some more comfortable buses that didn't emit so much black smoke I maybe would have enjoyed. The tape-recorded voice was pretty annoying - so many other tours come with a funny guide who can crack lots of jokes / earn tips. Not sure how these are still on the road - don't go if you have sensitive... More

My husband and I were on the Celebrity cruise to Alaska. We docked in Victoria @5:30 p.m. We purchased 2 tickets for the 7:30 p.m. bus tour. We were not told when we purchased the tickets that we would not be able to hop on/hop off. We were also led to believe that it would not get that dark during... More

Seems like a good idea but I question whether these buses should even be allowed on the road - a LOT of blue/black smoke was coming out of the bus the ENTIRE time. For such a green city these buses seemed a little out of place. Tour went to a lot of good sights - gave you the chance to... More

This tour was fun. It gives a visitor a sense of how the city is laid out and is a good overview. Our driver/guide was very knowledgeable and very pleasant. Glad we did this.

Mike was our driver and he did an excellent job telling us all about the city and surrounding area. At $38pp, I feel it's a great value for a wonderful tour of the city.

This is a hop on hop off service and gives an excellent commentary of sights and interesting facts. The driver, Alec Ward gave all passengers a warm welcome and continually checked that all passengers were comfortable, needed to be off at certain points and obviously really enjoyed his work. I would recommend this comfortable way to see the sights of... More

We did the hop-on hop-off tour of Victoria and we were very happy with the commentary and that we were able to get on and off and spend time. The cost was $38 per person.

Satisfactory experience – had nice weather so able to sit on top. Tour guide seemed knowledgeable, but repeated himself a couple of times – this was understandable because he was driving in congested traffic and in narrow streets. Did not appreciate his request for a tip – I would have left one without the reminder, but felt offended by the... More

It served the purpose of getting us around the city and giving us a chance to decide which places we might want to return to, but we've taken similar bus tours for overviews of other cities, and this was the weakest of those we've previously done. The driver had a bit of interesting information, but most of the comments were... More
