Victoria is a charming city, and much of the city's history is mixed in with the quaint storefronts and stunning harbor views. This tour begins at the former Canadian Pacific Railway Steamship Terminal and winds it way past Victoria's most photographed buildings, the Legislative Buildings and the Empress Hotel. Included in the tour is the Royal BC Museum and Thunderbird Park, which explores life in British Columbia from prehistoric times to today. The traveler taking Geogad's Mobile Tour of Victoria will learn about how Victoria began as a settlement of the Hudson's Bay Company and rapidly grew as a waypoint in the Gold Rush. The tour images also include photos of the people and businesses that worked to form and grow this 'piece of Eden' into the today's modern city.
Vancouver Chinatown and Granville Island are great places to visit to see how Vancouver is revitalizing itself while still retaining its history. Chinatown is the first stop as you explore its triumphs and its disappointments while we are introduced to its local heroes who influenced the world.

Hop on a ferry for a short cruise to a former industrial island transformed to a favorite shopping and eating location for travelers and locals alike.
