    Horse-Drawn Carriage Tours

    In a horse-drawn carriage

    Victoria Carriage Tours is the first sightseeing carriage tour operator in Victoria, offering the best of Victoria by horse drawn carriage or trolley year around.

    Captivating ambiance can be provided to you through this unique horse drawn experience. Professional drivers in tuxedos and top hats give fully guided tours which may include the fascinating Inner Harbour, the beautiful scenery of Beacon Hill Park and the charm of James Bay’s historic heritage buildings.
    They can also pick you up or drop you off at most of the downtown area accommodations.

    In addition to private carriages, they also provide tours for larger groups or individuals on a per person basis. Passengers are driven in a twenty seater green trolley drawn by a team of horses. The trolleys offer a 45 minute tour during the summer season that depart and return to their ticket stand.
    Look for the green umbrella!

    They use three main varieties of draft horses, Percherons, Belgians and Clydesdales.
    Their horses are friendly, and are happy to meet your acquaintance.

    There are a few horse drawn carriage companies operating in Victoria, this is one. Their statement says: "We pride ourselves on providing the highest quality of tour and service to our customers." I have no reason to dispute this statement. I haven't taken a carriage tour, but it looks very pleasant indeed. They say "Step back in time and take in the beauty of Victoria at a leisurely pace on one of our old-fashioned horse-drawn carriages or trollies and travel in comfort through the natural beauty of Victoria. Our fully uniformed professional drivers will fully narrate your tour.

    This is another Victoria tradition that is very popular with tourists. It is a good way to see the city and a fun way to do it. There are several tours to choose from and the carriage will hold up to six people.

    Tally-Ho Wagon Tour

    by KittyLou Updated Apr 4, 2011

    This company does Carriage Tours, however they are pricey. A wagon tour, with a pair of draft horses lasts 45 minutes and 2007 prices, according to the website are Adults $15 - Seniors $12 - Students (with ID) $9 Children (under 17) $7. While it may not be private and as romantic it is informative, special, and easier on the budget.

    Check the web site for details and to compare to the price of carriage tours. You might also want to read about the history of the company, dating back to 1903.

    horse-drawn wagon tour

    by sunnywong Written Feb 25, 2003

    A wonderful way to see the sights in Victoria is by horse-drawn wagon. It’s easy to find, too – just look for the horses around the Parlament Buildings. The tour takes you to most popular places around the town and the driver acts as the guide telling the history and funning things about each sites. My highly recommandation.
