    As you enter Beacon Hill Park, you will be dazzled with the array of fragrant flowers and delightful duck ponds.

    My husband and I had planned a surprise carriage ride for my in-laws while in Victoria for the day. We arrived 3 hours early and didn't want to figure out how to keep my in-laws occupied while waiting for our appointment. They were more than accommodating and fit us in early.

    What a great way to see Victoria. Well worth the money. Our tour took us past dozens of historic buildings, a gorgeous park, the ocean, and some fine homes. Hannah shared a wealth of knowledge with humor and insight, all while being kind to Dutchie.

    We took the Royal Carriage Tour around Victoria on an overcast morning and it was fantastic. Our guide gave us a narrative history of the sites while our horse, "Herbie" clip-clopped through the beautiful streets. By the time we had returned to Menzies Street (where we met up
