About the tour

Historic Rockland neighborhood in Victoria, British Columbia Walk through the gates of the residence of the Lieutenant Governor of British Columbia into an exhilarating landscape of wildflowers and ancient oak meadows, through manicured English gardens, and trails of native plans. The neighbourhood of Rockland has a small Scottish 1800’s Castle and amazing old mansions with an interesting history. My tours are not exactly the same each time. So much to explore, discover, and discuss. Variety and surprise are the very spice of travel.

Elizabeth is an excellent and very considerate tour guide. She wanted all of us to have clear viewing and audio and made sure we got it. She also is very adept with her camera skills and I was able to get some great photos. She is a charming woman and I am looking forward to my next tour with her. Thank you again, Elizabeth.
