“Great Overview of Victoria”
Reviewed September 21, 2013

If you are new to the city and don't have a car, this is an excellent way to get a general idea of what the area has to offer, what sites you might want to visit and then use this bus tour as a means of transportation to areas that are worthwhile but not walkable.

The bus makes a great loop and you can get off at any of the 14 stops, explore and get picked up one hour later and continue your tour. Some helpful and historical information is provided and there is a view of some of residential areas you might not otherwise see.

For $29 it's cheaper than a cab and much more enjoyable.

“Helpful sightseeing tour”
Reviewed September 16, 2013 via mobile

Good preview of Victoria's attractions that lasts about 90 minutes. Hop on hop off? You have an hour till the next bus. Most areas you would not spend an hour. Sightseeing and info about city outweighs the hop on hop off consideration.

“Especially good for first time visitors”
Reviewed September 7, 2013 via mobile

Lots of sights and good information, friendly staff. My only complaint is that it only stops once per hour at a given stop and tours seem to end early in the day.

“Great Way to See the Sites”
Reviewed August 31, 2013

The staff are great with giving information about the area, and the ability to hop on and off all day to visit the sites one wishes to see is terrific. The buses come on schedule, and the ability to check out what there is to visit by taking one full round on the bus can also be helpful. Would recommend as a great way to see the sites and then pick a few to get off and explore more closely.

“Best way to see the city!”
Reviewed August 17, 2013

This tour hits all the major sights in the city with an added bonus of being able to hop off and explore, then hop back on when you're ready! Very informative guides and helpful staff!
