Discover Victoria's story on a 1.5 hour walking tour with a knowledgeable and fun local historian. Enjoy picturesque views of the famous Inner Harbour and explore streets, alleys and squares as you learn about Victoria's fascinating history. This tour provides a superb overview, but also delves into the details of what makes Victoria such a unique and historically rich destination.

Meet your guide by the Inner Harbour in Downtown Victoria, and then set off on your 1.5 hour walking tour to explore the highlights of Old Town, Bastion Square and Chinatown. History and human drama abound in the area, and as you walk your guide will point out examples of beautiful 1800's architecture. Victoria is a walker's paradise and because it is a compact city, much historical ground can be covered in a short time. Starting with First Nations history and moving through European exploration and settlement, passing through the Gold Rush era along the way, this tour provides a great perspective on how Victoria has evolved over the years. While Victoria is known as a quaint slice of Olde England, the city certainly has its scandals and dark stories too. Hear about Opium smuggling during the 1880's as you wander along infamous Fan Tan Alley. Learn about Gold Rush desperadoes and lawmen as you stroll through Victoria's former Red Light District. Learn secrets that many locals don't know about the people and places that define Victoria. Finish the tour on the edge of Chinatown, only minutes from the Inner Harbour .
