This was our second time on a Tally-Ho carriage ride, the first time as a couple a few years ago, and this time with our horse-loving granddaughter. We took the narrated tour through the James Bay historical district with driver, Hannah, and sweet Christopher, the horse. We were completely delighted with the commentary Hannah provided. It was interesting, informative and... More

My wife pressured me to doing this and I originally felt the price was unreasonable for something like this. We had previously tried standalone horseback riding and I felt this was going to be the same thing. It actually was romantic and I enjoyed trying this out. We were taken on a nice quiet tour throughout the area and being... More

On our long weekend visit to Victoria my cousins took us on this tour. It was a great experience. Our tour guide was friendly and informative and she had nice snuggly blankets to help keep us warm. A great memory of the weekend.

Sofie was our carriage driver. She made the trip more interesting than the views. Very informative and entertaining. She knows her horses. Slow, plodding, through streets with a few older homes. Quite expensive ride.

Don't take this tour if you are looking for great excitement. This is for someone looking for a quiet charming carriage ride with information about Victoria. We were in town for a few hours off an Alaskan cruise so we booked the 60 minute deluxe tour of Beacon Hill Park with waterfront views of the snow-capped Olympic Mountains and the... More
