Our experience was wonderful! While Tommy, the horse clip-clopped along, the guide gave us an excellent historical tour of the area. She was well-informed and easy to listen to adding a few anecdotes along the way. Having stellar weather certainly helped. We would recommend this Royal Carriage Tour to everyone! ;)

The ride was excellent, and my carriage driver was very good at explaining the history of Victoria. It was a bit hard to hear, but I highly suggest this for tourists like me.

Bobby was a knowledgeable and thoughtful guide. We had a wonderful time on our tour with him. We would recommend his tour to everyone.

Tommy (the horse) is awesome, the guide, very informative and friendly and we enjoyed our ride a lot❣️Highly recommended
