With special guest ‘Dillon’, you will gain insight into the past and present of the Uplands and Cattle Point- most luxurious district north of Oak Bay: a prominent example of a garden suburb designed in the early part of the 20th century, luscious homes and meticulous gardens contrast sharply with the wildness of Uplands Park and beaches. We will drive by the manicured lawns in front of the homes and mansions that line Beach Drive on the main road through Uplands. Then, we’ll explore a historical beach ‘Cattle Point’ in front of the most dramatic ocean vistas of the Salish Sea.
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.

Elizebeth I really appreciated today’s tour. I am turning 65 in August and had hoped to spend it in the Victoria region, but due to poor health and low finances that will not be possible. I have been on disability for 12 years and it is difficult to stretch money so I feel badly that I have not given u a tip. I really appreciate the amount of history u share in your tours. Thanks so much.
