Accompanied by your local driver/guide, depart from Ogden Point, passing Beacon Hill Park and other city sights en route to the Craigdarroch Castle, an outstanding landmark home that dates back to the 1880's. The Castle stands out in the most affluent city steeped in heritage. Built from 1887 to 1890 by Robert Dunsmuir, Craigdarroch boasts a unique collection of residential stained glass windows, old style Victorian furnishings, and intricate wood paneling and carving. After your visit of this splendid home, rejoin the local guide returning via Chinatown welcomed by the Gate of Harmonious Interest, and passing by Canada's narrowest street, Fan Tan Alley. Continue to the Inner Harbor framed by some of Canada's most recognizable landmarks, the majestic Parliament Buildings and the ivy-covered Empress Hotel.
- If time permits, there will be a photo stop at the Inner Harbor before your return to the pier and ship.
- The amount of time from the bus to the castle is a casual 5 minute uphill walk.
- There are approximately 89 steps inside the castle.
