We enjoyed the bus tour after walking for hours the previous day and we saw lots of Victoria we wouldn’t have otherwise seen.

There was someone behind up that my husband had to tell to be quiet. And we couldn’t hear the taped narrative, to quiet, ruined it for us.

Bait and switch! Do not use this bus service! I purchased tickets for 1:30 start. I got here at 1:15 and she said that the bus was full. When asked how that was possible when the ticket I bought through Viator clearly states that my time is 1:30. The smart mouthed (not very bright) young lady says..."oh! We're not affiliated with Viator" I looked at her and said "then how are they selling tickets for you?" Then she looks at me with a blank look in her eyes and says.."yes...that's what I meant". So I asked her if they regularly oversold their tickets and she did not understand what that meant. So I clarified what it meant .....you sold more tickets than you had seats for...she says "no..that's not what we did"...then she said "well it's first come first serve" which didn't make sense because I was here before my assigned time of 1:30 and the bus was already full and they were turning people away. So they loaded the bus up at 1 pm? I had to stop talking to her because she was bringing my IQ down. So I spoke to a person who looked like she might be in charge and she said that they did oversell the bus and we needed to get in this long line and wait for the 2:30 bus. I told her I didn't pay for the 2:30 bus. She just shrugged. Needless to say, there were many many unhappy people waiting to talk to her too. AND to top it off, NOT ONE PERSON APOLOGIZED for the inconvenience. Horrible customer service.

On one of the buses the bus driver gave us more information between the recordings and much more entertaining than the recorded version!

Relaxing & informative ride. The fresh sea air & the views were awesome. I’ve been to Victoria many times but this was a great way to spend the day. Inexpensive & the 2 hours went super fast. Highly recommend this, it was a great way to see such a beautiful city.

There were no head phones available. We could not hear any of the narration. It would have been a lot more enjoyable with live narration.

We couldn’t hear the narration. Ear phones would have helped. Also the narration we could hear wasn’t in sync with our location.

Relaxing way to see Victoria
Patricia_C
, Jun 2022
This was a nice way to spend an afternoon while my husband was at a conference. The pre-recorded narrative was supplemented by the bus driver’s added information. It was nice as a tourist to see sites both within the inner harbour area and further afield. I had booked my ticket through Viator but was able to change it easily at the Hop On-Hop Off bus kiosk by the Empress Hotel to an earlier time slot. Because my husband and I had visited some of the attractions located by the bus stops on previous visits, I simply enjoyed the relaxing ride around town. And the fresh air on the open air upper level was great, even if a little cold that day.

I loved seeing Beacon Hill Park. Had fun meeting other people on the tour too. Easy access to the bus. Learned a lot about the highlights to go back and spend more time visiting at our leisure.

Limited buses running

Narrated tour convenient to not have earbuds only audio speakers on bus. Slightly hard to hear with street noise. Only had 2 buses running so it was 1 hour wait if you got off at any stop - slightly diluted the hop on/off experience.
