45-Minute Beacon Hill Park Horse-Drawn Carriage Tour

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
    What to Expect
    Your majestic horse and professional, informative and entertaining carriage driver/tour guide await you at the corner of Belleville Street and Menzies Street, next to Victoria's beautiful inner harbour and magnificent Legislative Buildings.  Upon arrival you will be escorted to your carriage where we'd be happy to take photos before you embark upon your journey.

    The Beacon Hill Park tour will pass some of Victoria's most famous landmarks, including the British Columbia Legislature, the totem poles of Thunderbird Park, St Ann's Academy (a magnificent 1871 Catholic school), and many historical buildings such as the home of renowned poet, activist, painter and author, Emily Carr.  Relax and enjoy the serenity of the beautiful 155-acre Beacon Hill Park with its stunning floral gardens, elegant fountains and natural landscapes.  Upon exiting the park, experience a glimpse into local life and enjoy meticulously preserved heritage homes in Victoria's charming neighborhood of James Bay, one of Vancouver Island's oldest residential districts.

    This private tour will be personalized for you, with the right mix of historical information, local folklore and simple relaxation as you sit back and enjoy the clip-clop of your horse's hooves.
