This is a fabulous way to really "see" Victoria. Dale spends a great deal of time advising prior to the tour and really personalizing the experience. Not only was it great to see the sights, but fun to watch everyone's reaction to his beautifully restored '54 Cadillac! I highly recommend this tour.

I found this company via Trip Advisor. Larry was quick to reply to my emails and the entire booking service was simple. The day we arrived Dale and "Fancy Nancy" were waiting for us on the dock. Fancy Nancy is a 1954 Cadillac. Dale spent about five minutes asking us what we wanted to do with our limited time in Victoria. We came up with a plan and then jumped into Fancy Nancy and off we went. Dale is familiar with the area and gave us a nice overview tour of the city. We opted to go to the Butchart Garden and he waited with the car while we toured. Then after our tour of the Butchart Garden we headed back to town. Then we were able to Craigdarroch Castle . It was closed but Dale did a wonderful job giving us the history of the building and the family. Then we headed to Government Street right in front of the Empress Hotel for views of the Hotel and the Parliament Building. Dale gave us more history of the harbor, the Parliament Building and the Empress hotel while numerous people came up and asked him about Fancy Nancy. Then, sadly it was time to return to port. Dale parked Fancy Nancy in a way we were able to get a picture of her and our cruise ship in the back ground. One of my favorite pics of the day. Overall a fantastic afternoon. It was a perfect way to maximize our time in the city. It was myself, my husband and my 78 year old father. This was the highlight of our Alaska cruise for my dad. He tells everyone about Fancy Nancy. Victoria will be on our short list to come back when we have more time to explore. We more than likely will hire Classic Car again to show us around. Thank you Dale and Fancy Nancy for a wonderful trip and memories. Price is fair for the quality trip you get.

We thought having a Tour Driver who is knowledgeable and drives a vintage automobile would be a fun way to see Victoria and we were not disappointed.
Dale showed up in his 54 Caddy and gave us a wonderful 2 hour+ tour of the city and surrrounding areas.Not having to drive and look, having a quality narative from a knowledgeable resident in a relaxing and spacious caddy made this a treat.
These folks will customize your tour based on your availbale time and interests and this is a must do for anyone visiting Victoria for the first time..

We were very pleased to hire Del with Classic Car Tours in Victoria B.C. Canada. We spotted him and his classic, freshly waxed black Parisenne out in a line of cars at the port in Victoria when departing the cruiseship. We thought we were just going to get a cab and found out how much the cost was to take us to The Buchart Gardens and figured it wasn't much more to hire Del for a few hours to drive us around and give us a guided tour of the city as well. I recommend this experience and say Del was a nice and easy going man to drive us around. We really enjoyed the whole experience :)

I had a great time. My driver/guide Dale arrived early. Tour was catered to what I wanted to see. Dale knew his stuff! Everywhere we went was fascinating. Rate for one hour, $100, might seem steep. However, considering what private limousine tours cost in general, I believe it is a reasonable cost--especially considering the company's overhead: vehicle upkeep, fuel, insurance, etc.

Plus it was awesome riding around in a '54 Cadillac. Plenty o' leg room. :-)
