    Pedicab

    Pedicab - Victoria BC

    If the weather is fine why not enjoy the town from the back of a pedicab.

    You can find the drivers at the Inner Harbour in front of the Empress hotel or just give them a call if you want to be picked up.

    THeir cheapest sightesseing tour lasts 90 minutes for CAD 45.00 per guest.

    Bikes May be Included with Hotel

    One of Many Hotels in Victoria advertising Bikes

    Check the hotel advertisements and web sites, as your room fee may include rental of a bicycle to get around Victoria. Many of the hotels near the ferry terminals in the core of downtown Victoria have this feature. It is cheaper, after all, to not put your car on the ferry. Naturally, bike rental included with a room would be a nice feature for those arriving without a car on the ferry.

    Some hotels include the price of bike rental only in the off-peak season.

    I imagine that there are probably restrictions that apply. For example, there may not be enough bikes for everyone in the hotel at the same time.

    Even so, if you plan or desire to do a bit of exploring of the city by bike, this would be a good option to explore further, as it prevents you from having to go to a bike rental shop: the bikes are right in the hotel, and may be included in your room rental.

    taking a rest from Downtown to Hillside

    To me, there was nothing like walking on Victoria's beautiful and safe streets. As the school wasn't that far from my homestay, I used to walk from Hillside to Downtown everytime I could, with great music on mi ipod and drinking some coffee. Take a chance to walk and discover new places, such as this beautiful park.

    Tally-Ho horse-drawn wagon, Victoria BC

    A perfectly wonderful way to see the sights in Victoria is by horse-drawn wagon or carriage! Tally-Ho Sightseeing Tours is Victoria’s oldest and most unique sightseeing company. It’s easy to find, too – just look for the horses!
    Tours begin beside the Parliament Buildings in the Inner Harbour. If this is your first visit to Victoria, take the hour-long discovery tour of the major attractions that even includes some of the city’s finest heritage homes.

    The most fun way, provided you don't have a car, is to take the Clipper, a hydrofoil from downtown Seattle to downtown Victoria. Check out this website, which also has information about other transportation options to Victoria.
    Walking, horse-drawn tour wagon, water taxi, bicycle, bus.
