Overview
More
Experience the natural beauty of Victoria with a local photographer and long time resident, as he shares with you his favourite vistas and Victoria's hidden gems. Our Natural Beauty Tour offers stunning scenery at 9 stops along our gorgeous coastline (you just have to be able to walk up slight inclines comfortably) - the first stop is only 7 minutes from your downtown hotel, and is among the best value of any Victoria Tour. Our Hike to the Top of Gowlland Tod Park is best short Hike in the area as the views are so spectacular - its moderate in difficulty, but we have had a 3 year old and a 78 year old do it, so you can too! Each tour includes door to door service from your hotel, snack, water, and a professionally taken photo (emailed).

The hike was amazing. I had a lot of fun and the view was really pretty. I was visiting Victoria with my Pathfinders group and so lucky to have been a part of the guided tour.

Thank Charlene L

Thanks to Mark for a great afternoon hike, full of beautiful scenery, fantastic local knowledge and great conversation. It was great to be on a guided hike where we had plenty of opportunities to take in the scenery and learn more about the landscape.
