Highlights
    What to Expect
    At your selected tour time, meet at the corner of Belleville Street and Menzies Street, across from the Parliament buildings, where you'll hop into your horse-drawn carriage and begin your leisurely ride.

    Sit back, relax and enjoy the views as your experienced driver navigates through historic James Bay, one of the oldest residential neighborhoods on the West coast of North America. Here, you'll admire magnificent architecture of some of Victoria's oldest homes.

    Breathe in the fresh ocean air as you turn onto the Dallas Road waterfront and gaze at the captivating Olympic Mountains. Ride past the former house of Emily Carr, a famous Canadian artist and writer inspired by the indigenous people of the Pacific Northwest coast.

    Wind your way through through James Bay and then back to Victoria's spectacular Inner Harbor. You have the option to continue riding to Chinatown -- simply notify your driver of your preferences.

    Hannah was a wonderful guide on our tour of James Bay! We heard about the local folklore while exploring the quaint streets of James Bay. Would highly recommend this tour for visitors or locals who have never experienced the charm of a horse-drawn carriage ride.
