This walking tour has something for everyone, a great walk, a bit of history, a touch of mystique and some beautiful buildings. Starting right from the cruise ship terminal, your guide will take you on a journey of discovery through the oldest residential neighborhood in Western Canada. The streets are lined with period houses and you will be captivated by the stories of the people and events that shaped this charming English town. On reaching downtown Victoria, you will gasp not only at the sight of the Legislature Building and the world famous Empress Hotel, but also at the incredible stories behind these buildings, some hard to believe, but all true! While walking up Government Street towards the shuttle bus to take you back to the ship, we will stop by the world renowned Rogers Chocolate shop and Morris's tobbaconist where John Wayne, Bob Hope and Bing Crosby crossed the threshold.
