    We never miss a visit to Beacon Hill park when we are in Victoria. It’s a great place to walk about and also encounter peacocks, ducks, owls and lots of squirrels.

    Spring time is beautiful with all of the flowers and trees blossoming.

    You can connect to the beach and walk and explore for some time if you want.

    So many things to see and look at. Decent price to get in, took about two hours to walk around and see everything. Lots of history, beautiful photo display during my time there.

    Had a great tour with Ryan, the architecture and history of building was brought to life. The forty or so minute tour really makes you appreciate the effort it took to get the building built, but at the same time recognizes that it was built at a different time, using different labour laws and taking advantage of a native family. The free tour is worth every moment. The gift shop is also well priced and has some good food offerings. Learn some history, learn about democracy, enjoy the grounds and restaurant!

    Interesting little venue with quirky little houseboats, some good food venues, scenic spot and a couple of nice shops. Just stake out a table and let your folks roam! Nice park next to it, for those restless little legs!

    This attraction was well worth the money. So much to see and wonderful displays. They had one of London and so much detail went into these displays. I took so many photos. Well worth a visit if in Victoria Canada.

    @ Oswego Hotel overnight to walk to Ogden Point Terminal to meet up with our friends on the ship. Well laid out, signs and helpful staff made it easy to find one another for a visit in Victoria. It’s a stunning view and easy access for all!

    In a city known for its gardens, the Government House Gardens remain basically unknown. Maintained by volunteers, these gardens are lovely, diverse, and inspiring. A guided tour is worth the expense, and I can recommend Arthur and Leslie as guides with great knowledge and a passion for the gardens.

    Government Street and the Waterfront are a Must see when visiting Victoria in the Summer. From the Extraordinary Architecture to the Tranquility of the Water and of course the wonderful Patios and Cafes.

    Just brilliant. You needn't be a kid or have kids with you.. We are in our 60s and loved it. Thought we'd pop in for 1/2 hour whilst the cruise ship was docked, and stopped for 2 hours. Wonderfully knowledgeable staff - thanks Kylie, what an infectious enthusiasm you have!

    This is a beautiful church, historic and very well preserved. It is well worth stopping in if you are in the area. The acoustics are superb. We were made to feel very welcome by the docent near the entrance.

    Victoria Pier is a lovely area to walk around and take in the fresh air and the wonderful views. There are plenty of boats, there is a range of eateries and other shops as well. A place to relax and enjoy.

    Took my grandson who is really into dinosaurs. Wow it was an amazing. Learned so much and experienced so much. You get to actually hold the fossils and see how they actually work on the fossils and at the end you get yo go work on some fossils - really cool.

    Overall good experience. We rode on with two motorcycles to do a tour of Vancouver Island. A couple of notes:

    * the ship does some rolling during the crossing — there are wooden blocks to support the bikes and ropes to tie them down — use those!
    * my wife is sensitive to motion and was pretty queasy during the crossing. They do sell Dramamine on board in the cafe (and six kinds of beer for those not bothered by the rolling.)
    * our WA enhanced drivers licenses were enough to enter Canada. We brought passports just in case but weren’t needed.
    * unlike WA State Ferries, you can’t return to your vehicle during the crossing — bring all you need with you.
    * while you’re waiting in PA, check out Welly’s Fruit Ice Cream at the Wharf adjacent to the ferry — delicious!
