Know More about this tour

Meet your guide and pick out a cruiser bike that’s a good fit, strap on your helmet and embark on a 2-hour journey exploring Victoria’s flat to rolling terrain. Pedal your way through the city’s diverse landscape and neighborhoods while listening to your informative guide detail the history behind the iconic buildings. Downtown, you’ll cruise along the bustling Inner Harbour, where you’ll watch seaplanes come in for a landing on the glassy waters. Then you’ll venture through the iconic Gates of Harmonious Interest, the entrance to the second oldest Chinatown in North America. Victoria’s Chinatown is a designated National Historic Site.
Decide for yourself if the beautifully eerie Craigdarroch Castle is truly haunted or not. The historic, 39-room, Scottish Baronial mansion, built in the late 19th century, has made star appearances in movies such as Little Women.
Relax on the leisure paths through Moss Rock Park and along the scenic Dallas Road waterfront. In Beacon Hill Park, you’ll see a totem pole that towers to an astonishing 127 feet and 7 inches (39 meters); when it was erected, in 1956, it was the tallest in the world. See what local living is like in quaint residential neighborhoods like Cook Street Village, which is lined with overflowing horse chestnut trees and small mom-and-pop shops.
Gaze at the old houses and tree-lined streets that fill Fernwood, one of Victoria’s most charming neighborhoods. It’s home to many artists and families that congregate in the dynamic community square, giving this area a pulsing sense of character and a touch of quirkiness.
When the tour ends, your guide can recommend great local restaurants for lunch on your own.

  • This was our 4th Viatour bike trip. Large group and being on city streets w/large group single file was important. Our group leader had been a theater major meaning her presentation of material was excellent once we stopped. Those ar the front of the ride got a lot more out of the tour. When I requested that perhaps she let those in front give those at back a chance up front and nothing happened I realized we weren't going to have the same experience we have had on other Viatour trips. The bike were great ... easy to handle and comfortable!

  • My daughter and I took this tour and really enjoyed it. Our tour guide Kaitlyn was amazing. Very informative, keeping a eye on all of us. 8 in our group. I had been on a bike in 27 years and was good with it. Victoria is a beautiful city. Will definitely go back.

  • A great cycling tour reasonably well paced and enough hills to make you feel as though you had at least done some exercise. The Tour guide was very knowledgeable about the history of Victoria and made the tour very interesting. Highly recommended.

  • I would highly recommend this bike tour. They were well organized and it is a great way to see the city. The bikes are in great shape and there are plenty of them.

  • This was a wonderful bike tour. Not very strenuous which we knew going in, but still fun. Our guide was great and we got to see more of Victoria than just the downtown area.

  • Great tour and personnel. Small group which was nicer than a big herd. Address was a bit confusing to find. Thumbs up!!
