A lovely boat ride across from Victoria's Fisherman's Wharf, takes us to a stunningly preserved 19th century Victorian home. Point Ellice is one of Victoria's oldest homes and national historic site. We'll explore the gardens and interior of the house and learn about the family life. Imagine a home complete with everything the family owned for 108 years, furniture, clothes, paintings, dishes. The place feels like the family is just out on the lawn by the hollyhocks and begonias in the garden, playing crocket, chitchatting, ready to come inside for tea. This tour connects the house and its occupants to the rich history of Victoria and British Columbia. Point Ellice House and museum is a grand example of keeping alive and preserving the rich Victorian heritage of this capital city. This tour is not to be missed, it's creepy and wonderful at the same time.
Born in Montevideo, Uruguay, Elizabeth then grew up in Israel and later in Toronto, Canada, where she studied literature and philosophy at York University. Her adventurous spirit landed her in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, where she pursued a career growing organic produce and culinary herbs for markets and restaurants. Canada had made a lasting impression on Elizabeth and so in 2010, she decided to return and take up residence in Victoria on Vancouver Island. Enthralled by the enchanting parks, Victorian homes, waterways, and mystic forests that make up this stunning garden city, Elizabeth delved deeply into the rich history that surrounds Victoria and its outlying areas, learning the stories of the gold rush and the indigenous peoples who live in this land. Elizabeth followed her heart and became a tour guide, exploring amazing places rich with culture, nature, and wildlife, and founded EV Tours, a tour guide service of private tours on Vancouver Island. On her walking tours on HeyGo, whilst traversing a wildflower field or following a deep forest path, she relates a variety of topics that pique the mind and inspire the soul, touching on such subjects as the island's geology, mind-bending historical past, culture, and its rich horticulture tradition. Come along with Elizabeth in this renowned Canadian, Pacific North West destination for an exciting and new experience that will expand your knowledge, enrich your spirit and be just plain fun.
