About the tour

Walk with me through a maze of streets and mysterious alleyways in Victoria's China Town, the second oldest in North America after San Francisco: bold colors of lucky red and gold, distinct architecture, and business names written in Chinese on shop windows. Discover the heart of Victoria's old town, a place of history, quaint shops, and restaurants.

What to expect

Get ready for something special. We’re travelling to Victoria with no passport, no plane ticket and no luggage. And yet you’ll experience all the sights, sounds and stories with just your laptop, favorite snack and an amazing guide.

The tour will last about 45 mins and will be live-streamed by your guide directly from Victoria. Forget about slideshows or pre-recorded videos, this is a live broadcast and anything can happen!

While on the tour you’ll be able to see a full screen video of your guide and their surroundings, interact with them and other travellers through the live chat, see where you are in the world on a map and show your appreciation with a tip.

Why are they tip-supported?

We are running these tours on a tip-supported basis to make them as accessible as possible. They are free to join, but you have the option to leave a tip during the tour.

The majority of your tip goes directly to support the guide’s hard work, while the rest helps Heygo continue to build a place that brings the world closer together.

A wonderful tour as Elizabeth takes us through the twists and turns of the back streets of China Town before ending at the waterfront with views of the city. Beautiful!
