Scenic Drive: Embark on a picturesque 55-minute drive along the waterfront, passing by Mile Zero, Beacon Hill, and the University of Victoria. Along the way, your guide will engage guests with Canadian trivia games at various stops. There will be a brief stop at Mount Tolmie for an opportunity to capture photos of the stunning panoramic view.
Tim Hortons Visit: What's the big deal about Tim Hortons? You're about to find out as you stop for coffee and a small snack at this Canadian institution – a fast-food chain that is virtually synonymous with Canadians.
Explore Downtown: After stopping at Tim Hortons, you’ll continue through downtown Victoria, getting an up-close view of the iconic Empress Hotel and Parliament Building. At the Inner harbour, you will have a brief photo stop, after which you can choose to be dropped off downtown to explore on your own or reboard the bus for a return trip to the pier.
Parting Gift: A Canadian goodie bag is yours to enjoy, with chips, a chocolate bar, maple candy and a Canadian souvenir.
Requirements & Restrictions: Guests must be able to ascend and descend stairs onto the motorcoach as there is no lift. Guests with a light, collapsible mobility device must be able to store the device under the bus themselves, as the guide or bus driver are not allowed to lift them.
What to Bring: Camera and cash or credit/debit card for purchases.
Good to know: The sequence of stops may vary due to construction and the bus may not be able to go by Chinatown. You will have a choice at Tim Hortons – a beverage of either coffee, tea, water or hot chocolate and four Timbits (bite-sized doughnuts).
