2 hour ride through the downtown and neighboring areas highlights of Victoria. 15 brief stops. Driver was knowledgeable, with interesting information, a very good driver and professional. Sitting on the top deck of an open top bus gives an excellent view.

An excellent way to see the city and then decide which attractions you wish to go back to. The driver was very knowledgeable and friendly.

Bobby was a knowledgeable and thoughtful guide. We had a wonderful time on our tour with him. We would recommend his tour to everyone.
