If you're visiting Victoria for a short amount of time, I recommend the hop-on-hop-off bus. Advice: Bring a jacket and scarf. It might get very chilly if you're sitting on the second level.

Really and truly impressively bad service. The whole reason we did this was for my 77 year old father in law whose knee was giving him trouble. We were told to show up for a special tour at 5 pm when we got our tickets. After returning and waiting in the rain for 20 mins, we were told by the... More

This company was wonderful to deal with and Jackie and her manager were so kind to us as we had purchased a groupon with a competitor who sold us the groupon but didn't tell us they were not operational in March. I can't say enough about how helpful this company was and as it was a surprise 82nd birthday for... More

We bought tickets to do the hop-on bus tour in July 2015. Enjoyed our few hours seeing the sights of Victoria on a beautiful, warm sunny day. Also, enjoyed sitting up top in such nice weather. Enjoyed getting off at beacon hill park. Also, enjoyed the ocean scenic drive from the bus. Friendly staff. Nice, relaxing tour in Victoria.

A good tour that visits enough places to fill up a day, the initial loop around Downtown Victoria is good to get an overview of the city, then the Fisherman’s Wharf, Beacon Park, Craigdarroch Castle were all worth getting off of the bus for.

If they had some more comfortable buses that didn't emit so much black smoke I maybe would have enjoyed. The tape-recorded voice was pretty annoying - so many other tours come with a funny guide who can crack lots of jokes / earn tips. Not sure how these are still on the road - don't go if you have sensitive... More

My husband and I were on the Celebrity cruise to Alaska. We docked in Victoria @5:30 p.m. We purchased 2 tickets for the 7:30 p.m. bus tour. We were not told when we purchased the tickets that we would not be able to hop on/hop off. We were also led to believe that it would not get that dark during... More

Seems like a good idea but I question whether these buses should even be allowed on the road - a LOT of blue/black smoke was coming out of the bus the ENTIRE time. For such a green city these buses seemed a little out of place. Tour went to a lot of good sights - gave you the chance to... More
