A must if you’re visiting Victoria!
Jul. 2021 • Solo
A must if you’re visiting Victoria! What an amazing walking tour led by a true historian! I ended up getting the tour to myself and learned interesting facts, filled with twists and turns and gems of information only a true historian could tell. Chris made the whole experience fun and eye opening.

A highlight of our trip in Victoria
Jul. 2021 • Family
My two children (age 9 and 11) joined the Story of Victoria tour and enjoyed it immensely. John the historian is a wealth of information and the stories he told were informative and entertaining. As we didn't have time for the Chinatown tour, we asked John if he could give us a mini version at the end of our historicak tour. John took us through Fantan Alley, taught us how to play the Fantan gambling game, and through a beautiful Chinese Temple (the highlight according to my kids). The tour is definitely a highlight of our trip to Victoria!

Victoria History walking tour
Oct. 2020
A wonderful, deeply informative and highly enjoyable tour. I learned so much about Victoria's history that I never knew before. From the First Nation settlements to the Gold rush frontier town to modern times. My guide was incredibly knowledgeable and very fun! I had a great time!

I absolutely recommend the Victoria Stories tour! It was fun, interesting, and a great way to learn about Victoria in a refreshing way. The tour guide was extremely knowledgeable and interesting. I will definitely do another Discover The Past tour the next time I'm in Victoria!

Victoria's history at a leisurely pace
Aug. 2020
Having a guided walking tour of Victoria with a very knowledgeable guide like Chris was thoroughly enjoyable. We learnt so much in a short amount of time at a leisurely pace. If you want to find out about the history of Victoria these are the people to teach you.

Victoria with new eyes
Aug. 2020 • Couples
I’ve been to Victoria a few times but never really understood its layout, architecture or cultural style until I heard it explained by Chris. He has a great depth of knowledge and a passion for the city’s history.
I’ll never look at Victoria the same way again.
An excellent walking tour. Thanks Chris!

Walk. Have fun and learn
Aug. 2020 • Couples
We took the "Historical Victoria Walking Tour". It was an amazing experience. The guide was funny and with a lot of knowledge about Victoria and its past. He took the time to answer any questions we had. We felt like if we were walking with a friend and talking about Victoria.

Great Historic Walking Tour!
Jul. 2020
My boyfriend and I spent only a few days in Victoria, and this walking tour was easily one of our favorite parts of our trip! Although we had both visited Victoria before, our guide, John, shared with us many interesting facts and stories that gave us a much deeper appreciation for the city. He was passionate, knowledgeable, kind and accommodating (considering we accidentally bought tickets for the wrong day). John took the time to answer our questions and show us some extra details of the city, in spite of the tour going beyond its allotted time (and the hot weather).

If you have an interest in history or simply want a better understanding of the city, I would highly recommend this tour.
