“Great for people watching....”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 June 2014

After our cruise ship docked, rather than take the shuttle, we chose to walk along the sea front, past Fisherman's Wharf to the Inner Harbor - there is a plethora of tourists on foot, on bikes, on walking tours, on the water, taking off on sea planes....the visitor center right on the front had maps and guides and many suggestions of things to do and the staff were very helpful.

Just off the main street, there is every variety of shops and eating places - I can't remember the name of the street but just off of Government St, we came across a small plaza,set on a hill, which had many little stalls, where artists are selling their wares - I bought amethyst earrings and an aluminium bracelet from two different artists - very talented and very friendly; I always like to buy from the local artists to support them/the local economy etc...

“THE "must visit" place on the west coast of Canada.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 June 2014

If you come all the way west in Canada and onto Vancouver Island, you have to visit the Inner Harbour. It is where all the main attractions are and it is just plain beautiful. I highly recommend staying on the harbout itself, if you can afford it, with The Empress being the number one hotel. Don't miss the Royal BC Museum. TONS of great restaurants and pubs.

“Great Walking Tour of Victoria Harbour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 June 2014

Our cruise ship docked and we wanted to take in the sites at our own pace. There was lots to see, The Empress Hotel, Parliament Buildings, China Town, great music and wonderful sites. Enjoyed ice cream at Fisherman's Wharf

Fascinating location to just sit, relax, and take in the humanity of it all. Scenery, of course, could not be better!
