We start the tour with a brief overview of Victoria and what makes it such a special place to live. Our expert guide will tell you interesting facts and history about the Inner Harbour while you head over to the Harbour Ferry to get a ride to Chinatown!

The harbour ferry is a great way to see the Empress from where it was built to be seen – from the Steamship that came from Vancouver. Learn about our busy harbour and ask questions to your happy ferry captain on your way over to the other side of town.

Explore the architecture of Chinatown and learn about its darker side from the late 1800s. Discover hidden alleyways and courtyards that were a maze that the Chinese men built and used well. Take a break at a historical pub that is a long-time favourite to the locals.

Continue the tour to a modern hidden brewery to try a few sips on a beautiful patio. Learn about market square before heading to get another view of the harbour and enjoy the most Canadian food there is – if you don’t know, we will surprise you!
