Although I lived in Victoria for several years, I never took a horse drawn carriage ride, considering it something for the tourists. This was a real mistake. Five members of our family took the one hour tour and everyone loved it , with ages 16 to 74. The guide was fascinating to listen to and the stories entertain us all.... More

We booked a 30 min carriage tour after dark last minute and they were able to fit us in. The perfect time of day as the buildings were lit up particularly the Parliament building. Hannah was our driver with Sam and she gave us a lively tour of the city with some interesting info. The evening was chilly but we... More

What a breathtaking experience! On a romantic weekend away with my husband, he surprised me with a carriage tour through downtown Victoria. Such a perfect way to end an incredible day in the city. Our tour guide Hannah and her companion horse Lucas were terrific. She gave us all the history of down town as Lucas trotted us along the... More

WE had never taken a carriage ride before and the whole experience was amazing. Everything was clean, blankets if you get cold, you can pet the horse, and the tour guide we had was fantastic. Turns out she had been doing this for 10 years, great enthusiasm, really knowledgeable, and very personable. My wife and I are going to book... More

My wife and I celebrated an anniversary in Victoria and I thought, correctly, that my wife would enjoy a horse drawn carriage ride. We booked the 90 minute ride that ended at sunset. Emily was our driver, affable and knowledgeable about the neighborhoods we rode through. Very accommodating, she worked out a slight business matter so as not to delay... More

Went for a carriage ride with my boyfriend to celebrate our anniversary and it was perfect! The lady (Anne I think her name was) was extremely knowledgeable and lovely! Sam (the horse) was an absolute doll and is all about the attention! Thank you so much for an amazing experience and I'll be sure to visit again!

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

Went on this tour with my parents. Christopher (the horse) and Emily (the driver) were lovely. Great tour of the old house district in Victoria and the ocean.

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
