We took the Gray Line bus that left from our hotel. excellent. saw the whole area. be sure to take a sweater because when you are on the coast - it is very windy and cold. We learned alot about Victoria and BC. !!!

After many visits to this wonderful city we finally decided to try the red, double-decker buses. What a great time it was. On these buses you can get off at any stop and get back on the next bus which runs every hour. The narration...More

We took the last tour of the day (so no hop-on, hop-off) and got a nice 1.5 hour circular tour of the Victoria area. The driver was super friendly and knowlegable so that made it a great tour. My 15-year-old daughter was so impressed with...More

A bit expensive for the product/service provided. Staff were courteous and friendly; however, we found it to be over priced. We recommend public transit and walking in concert with Google or Wikipedia. In the event you have walking restrictions or traveling with small children, you...More

Save money. A day pass on City Transit costs $5.00 and you can ride one of those buses instead. They are nicer and have friendlier drivers. You won't smell the fumes from this bus if you take city transit instead. There is no air conditioning...More

It's about a 40 minute ride to the gardens. It's a separate bus ticket to the gardens. I spent 3hours at the gardens and felt like I had seen everything.

Yes, you can hop on and off at any stop, the driver lets you know when stop is coming up he/she gives you a map. Since your mother has a hard time walking I think it is the best way to see the city, and if she can walk a... More
