Wander around Canada's oldest Chinatown, soak up the views of majestic Mount Tolmie, and take a scenic drive with mesmerizing mountain and ocean views. This dazzling tour also gets you into Craigdarroch Castle, a towering home on a hill overlooking the City of Victoria.

See the real Victoria on this in-depth 2.5 hour guided tour, including a stop at the impressive Craigdarroch Castle.

Built between 1887-1890, this huge home is the stuff of Canadian dreams. Most notably, one man's dream - an industrialist and Scottish immigrant called Robert Dunsmuir, who made his fortune from Vancouver Island coal, and constructed this as his family residence.

Take a tour of the glorious insides, and get ready for your jaw to drop at stunning beach and mountain views on the Scenic Marine Route. Take photos of the panoramic views of Mount Tolmie, breathe the fresh air in Beacon Hill Park, and make a stop in Victoria's Chinatown - it's the second oldest in North America, after San Francisco's!

There's free WiFi on the bus to help you post some photos of the gorgeous mountain scenery as you go. You have to see it to believe it!
