taking bus from Victoria to Sydney

My daughter and I are leaving Tuesday for a short getaway in Victoria - staying 1 nite. We found a place in Sidney that kids can explore minerals and stones that my daughter is so excited about and really wants to visit. How hard would it be to take the bus from Victoria to Sidney? Its supposed to be down by the harbor in Sidney - across from the Pier Hotel. I walk with a cane due to a knee replacement - so a little hard to get around but willing to have an adventure. I believe it would be too costly to take a taxi. Anyone's advice is most welcome!

The #70 bus goes from downtown Victoria to Sidney. The fare is $2.25 for adults and $1.40 for youths (exact change). Here is the link to the route:

The bus stops at Beacon Avenue and Fifth Street and Mineral World is at the end of First Street (turn left off Beacon). I have problems with my knee, so I understand where you are coming from, but I think you should be able to manage it.

Big Bus Victoria offers a hop on hop off of the Saanich Peninsula. They depart from downtown Victoria and they go up to Sidney, Butchart Gardens as well as a number of other places up on the Saanich Peninsula. If you're travelling on BC Ferries, they also stop at the ferry terminal. A 2 day pass is $30 per person and you can get on and off wherever you want as many times as you want.

Check it out at www.bigbusvictoria.ca
