Enjoy a leisurely and scenic two-hour walking tour that includes some of the city's most memorable and iconic sights. From the pier you'll follow your guide along the seawall, a Victorian landscape of manicured flowerbeds, graceful trees and sparkling streams set against the backdrop of the snow-dusted Olympic Mountains. Meander up to Beacon Hill Park, home of the world's largest totem pole then on to Victoria's historic Inner Harbour. Amble past the 1886 Royal British Columbia Museum, whose collections strive to preserve the area's cultural and natural history. Another Victorian icon is the stunning Parliament building, completed in 1897 in honor of Queen Victoria's Diamond Jubilee. Further on is the gem known as the Fairmont Empress Hotel. This treasured landmark, once called "the heart and soul of the city," is a stunning reminder of a bygone era. Afterwards, you may return to the ship via complimentary shuttle or stay downtown to explore and return on your own.
