Victoria, British Columbia

Oct 02, 2019 - National Geographic Venture


After another stunning sunrise and breakfast, guests departed the ship for activities around town. Whether you explored by bike or through the eyes of the natives in the Royal British Columbia Museum, local guides enhanced our knowledge of this gorgeous city by telling its stories and sharing its rich culture. After lunch on the ship, we all embarked on more adventures, some of us toured private gardens while some viewed the unique architecture of the James Bay neighborhood. Cocktail hour was held in the Robert Bateman gallery and we all got a chance to enjoy the art and contribute to conservation, all the while drinking a glass of bubbly and eating some fabulous little fixings. After dinner, the brave set out on a very spooky haunted Victoria tour led by none other than local celebrity “Historical walking tour Chris”.
