Family Fun Tour – Excellent for Young Kids ITINERARY

This is a fun full day tour for families with younger kids and just kids at heart! You’ll love the easy paced day and fun places to explore and capture memories for your photo album. Have you ever fed a real peacock? Or seen a sleeping giant? Ever visited a real castle or see a real house floating on the Ocean? This tour includes a picnic lunch on the beach or a cafe with a view of the sailboats. There are lots of places for the little ones to burn off their energy, laugh and giggle.

This tour will start at the Inner Harbour with a brief overview of the city and it’s most legendary building surrounding the Harbour.
Stop 1: Voyage on a Harbour Ferry to Fisherman’s Wharf for a stroll around the gem-colored float homes and perhaps indulge in the best fish and chips you’ve ever had.
Stop 2: Thunderbird Park to see a fantastic cluster of Totem poles representing many West Coast First Nations people. What stories do they tell?
Stop 3: Beacon Hill Park to climb a tree, visit the sleeping giant, play with goats and feed roaming peacocks + see the tallest Totem pole in the world.
Stop 4: A spectacular view of the city and across the Ocean where you can see the Olympic Mountains in the United States.
Stop 5: Government House grounds where the Lt. Governor of Bc lives and works. If exploration of the beautiful grounds are of interest we can wander around here. Often you will encounter the resident deer munching away at the flora and fauna. And just outside the grounds we’ll stop to see a fairy tree.
Stop 6: The Craigdarroch Castle where the Dunsmiur family, once the richest family in Canada, lived and played out a public scandal the rocked the nation.
Stop 7: Beach time! Play in the park and enjoy your picnic lunch (bathroom facilities available) Optional lunch will be at the Oak Bay Marina surrounded by all kinds of boats and ocean activity.

GUIDED TOUR ADD-ONS

Per Person Price: $40/hour

  • Bring your own suits, towels etc. We will go directly back to your accommodation following this activity. 

There are a couple of things I need to Address and find appropriate placement

  • Cancellation policy 
  • Covid measures – some changes here 
  • Mobility challenged guests 
  • Kids – car seats etc
  • Seasonal restrictions – mostly “Wine tastings”

These things I think we can add in on each tour where NOTES are but rename this”Good things to know”. or “Important things to know. 

I will likely create a private tour – specifically addressing people with Mobility challenges.
