On this hour long carriage ride, you'll see many of the things that make Victoria so beautiful and memorable.  The tour begins with a view of the majestic, historic Empress Hotel.  The hotel overlooks the Inner Harbor, which is often full of classic tall ships and sleek, sailing vessels.  The carriage ride will continue to pass by area landmark buildings and historic homes as you enter the Beacon Hill Park.  The 62-acre park is full of colorful plant life and birds.

The tour makes a turn onto the Dallas Road waterfront, which passes the Mile Zero mark on the Trans Canada Highway.  Enjoy the splendor and grandeur of the Olympic Mountains and the Juan de Fuca Strait and travel through the James Bay neighborhood, one of the oldest in Victoria that possesses well-maintained historic homes and gardens.

The tour concludes back inside the Inner Harbor near the British Columbia Parliament Buildings and the Royal London Wax Museum.
