A horse-drawn carriage is the perfect way to escape into beautiful downtown Victoria.

This was more fun than I was expecting it to be! Even on a crummy, rainy day, we had a very good time. The Carriages are very comfortable, with covered tops, and blankets for the passengers. We saw all the sights of Victoria at a lovely, slow pace and toured neighborhoods I'd probably never have seen otherwise. We received bus shuttle tickets as part of the deal, so we were able to return to downtown to continue our visit on foot. Victoria is a charming city and I wish we'd had more time there.

Not enough time in this port. 7:30 PM is late to get in and we sailed just after midnight. Didn't get to see much of anything here.

We did get overview of a small part of city, but it was slow and wasted a good hour when we could have been walking to these places. There was a big festival in Victoria that night and all the streets and restaurants were mobbed. My impression of this town would have probably been alot different at another time. Sorry I didn't do the Butchart Gardens tour. Very easy to get a cab to and from the ship and they will take American money.

We booked a carriage tour for Victoria. We booked privately so we could have our own separate carriage. This worked well for us because we didn't want the baby to annoy others. The drive in the carriage was a nice ending for our cruise, and we finished up by snapping a few photos of Victoria before heading back to the ship.

Good value, $ 49 each for 1 hour tour, you see a lot, waterfront and downtown, tour guides tell you a LOT of history and context, this was a good value. Weather was lousy again, cold, raining, but we were dry under a canopy and blanket . . .so we passed on more elaborate and quite expensive shore excursions ( Butchar Gardens and High Tea at Empress Hotel ) and instead went back to our ship for a final, delicious, warm and dry dinner at Blu.
