What Our Guests Are Saying

GregJBraat, Business

“I went on the Victoria Highlights 2 Hour Private Tour twice! My staff and I travelled to Victoria in two different groups so I was able to enjoy the experience twice. Our guide was Steven and he was fantastic - a great depth of knowledge and he was easily able to adapt to the "styles" of our two different groups. In fact, our first group was somewhat disruptive (in a fun way) and adventurous so we didn't actually finish the tour! Our second group was able to enjoy the entire tour and as it turns out, our first group missed the best part! Anyway, I highly recommend Toonie Tours and wouldn't hesitate to use their services again!”

“This was a fantastic tour with Forest! Very informative of the beautiful historic sites. Great pace, stopped strategically, brought us to unique quiet spots. Forest gave excellent suggestions for restaurants and pubs. We never would have seen so much of this beautiful city any other way. Highly recommended walking tour.”

“An excellent way to understand both historical and modern day Victoria. Our guide, Steven, was vey well prepared to guide us through the beautiful and sometimes less well known parts of central Victoria. A very well paced tour with plenty of time to ask questions and get a feel for this historical town.”
