Full description
Welcome to Victoria, a charming seaside city known for its English-style customs, abundant gardens, and friendly people. On this walking tour, I’ll show you around our most famous landmarks and share the history of the people who were instrumental in the making of Victoria. You’ll hear about the Lekwungen First Nations, and Fort Victoria’s ties to colonization. I’ll tell you the scandalous tale of a famous architect who built British Columbia’s striking Legislative Assembly of British Columbia and Grand Empress Hotel, and other quirky tidbits involving pirates, public hangings, and Canada’s narrowest street. Along the way, you’ll become familiar with: • The Inner Harbour, where you’ll find the legislative building and the Grand Empress Hotel • Old Town Victoria, now a hip and trendy shopping district • Chinatown and the plight of the first Chinese immigrants to land in Canada • Victoria’s oldest shops, banks, and pubs This 90-minute tour begins and ends at the Inner Harbour. There are plenty of restaurants, pubs and shopping opportunities along the way if you have the time to stretch your day.
