What an incredible experience! Mike was THE best tour guide ever! So great with my two kids and funny. He was very safe and made the experience so fun. Very knowledgeable too and even though we are locals, we learned so much about Canadian history and Victoria. Would HIGHLY recommend!

Sights of Victoria
Denise_H, Sep 2023
I enjoyed all of what we saw except the "Homeless" area. Leader had an e-bike & went a little faster than I wanted to go. It would have been fun to do more of the ocean trail.
Best Bike Tour in Victoria!

Enjoyed touring the city with our guide, Michael. The tour was very informative. Saw a good overview of the city… check in was efficient and the staff friendly. Would recommend!
Not for small kids
Melania_A, Aug 2023
The staff was very friendly. However, it is not a tour for families with small children. They do not have enough options to take children and the Viator page does not specify that it is for over 12 years of age.
Wonderful tour!
Joanne_C, Aug 2023
Our tour guide was wonderful. She paced the biking well, was most attentive to safety and staying together and provided excellent narration to all our stops.
Very worthwhile!

Outstanding tour! We covered so much ground! Our boys said it was the best thing they did in Victoria! We got to see so many cool landmarks and the E-bikes for mlm and dad who are out of shape made it extra enjoyable! Thank you!!!

Victoria history bicycle ride
Sherry_R, Jul 2023
The ride was easy. Mike, our guide, was full of history information and made it fun. He was amazing with remembering everyone’s names! The ride was mostly streets/bike paths. Went thru parks and along the coast.
Riding in the hoods!

Loved Barbara! She was happy and informative! We used electric bikes for the first time and loved them. The people in the office were great! It was a lovely morning!

Fun tour with a friendly and informative guide. Really nice way to see more neighborhoods and get a feel for Victoria. Mostly flat biking with just a couple small hills.
Fun in the sun

Barbara did a fantastic job sharing history while safely taking us around the sites. Really a great way to start out our vacation.
Amazing tour, amazing guides,
Doug_S, Jul 2023
We had an amazing time on the tour!!!! Tour was on July 5 at 10:30 AM. Mike our guide was extremely knowledgeable, fun, definitely want to make sure everyone was having a great time!! they help to fit our bike to our size and also our helmets!! What surprised many of us, Mike remembered everyone of our names, and I think there was 12 or 14 in the group!!!! We toured the castles, gardens, china town, the beautiful ride on Dallas Road near the water!!! Mike shared so much history, one of the buildings the complete story of the architectural extremely informative!!!! Also, both guys were very compassionate, I previously injured my knee, torn meniscus, and going up the hill, had to hang back a bit. The guide that was in the back, which I apologize I cannot remember his name because I was in such pain, was amazing Help me get on and off the bike to continue to follow the rest of the group and stay close to make sure I was OK. At one point Mike at one of our stops moved the group closer to me so I could hear the story, which was so kind!!! We highly recommend this tour company they do a fantastic job!!!!!

Good tour
Nicole_P, May 2023
Great to see a lot of little things around the city, tour guide was knowledgeable. A member of our tour also needed to be taken back and they handled it very professionally without affecting anyone else.
Excellent mixture of...
Kirk_F, Sep 2022
Excellent mixture of information, humor and street knowledge. They guide Michael was exceptional. We covered great deal of the city from the harbor to the highest point.
Never book if on a Cruise!
John_H, Sep 2022
Our cruise left at 12:30 and the bike tour ended after that! So we didn’t get any tour. Never book through Viator because the savings isn’t worth it!
Excellent tour and tour guide.
