“bad weather good time”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2012

Well, we missed the nice weather by about 10 days but the good thing is we could walk into most resturants and be seated. Also, felt more like a local because not too many toursists. Had a great time.

“city centre tourist magnet”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 25, 2012

This is the place where you will find all the tourist gear. Much is the same, but there has to be somewhere in each town for this. The pubs are good but there are too many poor buskers ! Every corner has someone who thinks they can play something it can drive you mad!

“World class city”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 4, 2012

Once in a while my wife and I like to play tourist in our home town. One of of favourite spots is to walk down Government street from Beacon Hill Park all the way to Chinatown. On a warm summer evening it is a wonderful walk. Everyone is buzzing about and all the shops and pubs are full of life. A great way to get in tune with the city!

“The heart of downtown”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 4, 2012

Gov't street is a must do when visiting Victoria - you can just stroll along, take in the fabulous market in the adjacent Market Square, eat in one of many infamous local eateries -high tea at the Empress, Sam's deli, or Rebar (tucked away on a side street, but an easy walk)

“This is Victoria at its best”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 4, 2012

Great little street to wander, view the sights, enjoy the older buildings, window shop, say hello to other visitors, stop for a quick snack or drink. This street give the city a European flavor, and I like that.
