This was our second time on a Tally-Ho carriage ride, the first time as a couple a few years ago, and this time with our horse-loving granddaughter. We took the narrated tour through the James Bay historical district with driver, Hannah, and sweet Christopher, the horse. We were completely delighted with the commentary Hannah provided. It was interesting, informative and... More

My wife pressured me to doing this and I originally felt the price was unreasonable for something like this. We had previously tried standalone horseback riding and I felt this was going to be the same thing. It actually was romantic and I enjoyed trying this out. We were taken on a nice quiet tour throughout the area and being... More

On our long weekend visit to Victoria my cousins took us on this tour. It was a great experience. Our tour guide was friendly and informative and she had nice snuggly blankets to help keep us warm. A great memory of the weekend.

Sofie was our carriage driver. She made the trip more interesting than the views. Very informative and entertaining. She knows her horses. Slow, plodding, through streets with a few older homes. Quite expensive ride.

We had a half hour being driven around the old houses and sea views by Gus, he is the oldest of all the horses but in no way is he slow. The driver was quite a knowledgeable young lady and kept us interested in all she had to tell us on our travel. The sun had gone down and it... More

Don't take this tour if you are looking for great excitement. This is for someone looking for a quiet charming carriage ride with information about Victoria. We were in town for a few hours off an Alaskan cruise so we booked the 60 minute deluxe tour of Beacon Hill Park with waterfront views of the snow-capped Olympic Mountains and the... More

My boyfriend planned a surprise proposal!He booked the romantic tour, that includes a beautiful ride by gardens, local heritage streets, through some parks and bouquet of flowers. Today was rainy day here but the carriage had 2 large blankets available. The company helped him by stopping at Beacon Hill Park near the Stone Bridge. We walked around and he wanted... More
