About the tour

It will be an honour and a pleasure to show you Victoria through my eyes. Firstly I would like to note Heygo has an excellent guide in Victoria and I strongly encourage you to visit Elizabeth's tours. As an Island capital with colonial roots, Victoria has long been seen as a deeply British outpost on the Pacific Ocean, yet the city's mix is so much more complicated. As an important indigenous centre of culture - and a liberal political stronghold (with arguably Canada's mildest climate), Victoria is as much about lifestyle (on-grid or off) than it is about stately homes and grandiose architecture. As is the case with so many Canadians, my dad spent his last few years in Victoria. While I have guided here for years, I came to know this city at a much more human level and hope to share this famous, far-flung capital with you through a series of 'guide's choice' tours.
