Know More about this tour

Meet your guide and pick out a cruiser bike thats a good fit, strap on your helmet and embark on a 2-hour journey exploring Victorias flat to rolling terrain. Pedal your way through the citys diverse landscape and neighborhoods while listening to your informative guide detail the history behind the iconic buildings. Downtown, youll cruise along the bustling Inner Harbour, where youll watch seaplanes come in for a landing on the glassy waters. Then youll venture through the iconic Gates of Harmonious Interest, the entrance to the second oldest Chinatown in North America. Victorias 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, youll 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 Victorias most charming neighborhoods. Its 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.

    Me and my family took this tour around Victoria and it was amazing! We got to see parts of the city that we wouldn't have if we hadn't taken the tour. Becka was our tour guide and she was fantastic, not only did she give us historic information but also excellent recommendations on where to go in this city and for great food. The whole team at the Pedaler is outstanding. We definitely recommend this tour to anyone visiting Victoria.

    I have been meaning to write this since October! We like to start off our vacations with a bike tour and Steph, our tour guide, did a great job giving us an overview of the city. The weather was picture perfect and we ended up the only two on the tour. Steph was an amazing tour guide who was well informed, pleasant to be with, answered all of our questions, referred us to great restaurants. Although we rode on main streets throughout the city, we always felt safe. The ride is mostly flat, but we covered a lot of ground and got a feel for the city layout so we could later explore on our own by bike and foot. Victoria is a beautiful city and we would highly recommend this bike tour!

    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!

    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.
