This walking adventure is a “Victoria 101”! The 2-hour city walking tour will show you all the top attractions in the city. Your local guide (that's me) will take you to must-see spots such as The Inner Harbour, The Parliament, Chinatown, Boomtown, and much more. We will walk where buses simply can’t go, while I breathe life into the history of Victoria and give you an authentic introduction to British Columbia’s Capital City. Our Walking Tour of Victoria starts outside the iconic British Columbia Parliament Building and ends in Centennial Square. I will strive to make Victoria’s fascinating history come alive for you, taking you past iconic and picture-ready sites like the Empress Hotel, multiple heritage buildings from the Gold Rush Era, and the famous “Canada's skinniest alley” in Chinatown. You’ll learn about Victoria’s many eras & districts and discover how it has grown from a small trading post, to a rollicking boomtown, to the laid back and beautiful City of Gardens. ********** This tour operates in the style of a “Free Walking Tour”. Every guest has the freedom to set their own price, depending on their budget, the amount of value they feel they received on tour, and their desire to support me and this experience. It is tips-based tour. Your $2 is a booking fee. Compensation on top of that is always optional, and always very appreciated
Hello! I'm Logan. Thanks for landing on my experience page. Soon you'll be landing in Victoria, Canada and I would love to show you around my city :) I'm a Canadian - born in a small town, addicted to hockey & the outdoors, and happy to meet new people. Victoria is an amazing fit for my lifestyle - it's a bigger city with a small town feel; the people are friendly, and proud; and it gives me access to the best outdoor activities in Canada from surfing to hiking to snowboarding. It's also super walkable. Victoria has a deep & fascinating history & culture. It has seen its fair share of gold-rush booms and busts, wars, crimes, and people of all types. I'm a full time tour guide in British Columbia and getting to share my home with world travellers on the daily keeps me grounded, energized, and excited day-in and day out!
