WE missed the first tour either because it was cancelled or the tour guide was not easily visible. HIGHLY recommend a sandwich board or some other means of identifying where to gather as it was a fluke we found the guide the second time. And during the tour, a woman came up and asked if tis was the AIBC tour as she had been waiting downtown to meet but had not found it. Otherwise, the tour itself is fine.

Fascinating and interesting information in your own back yard. Knowledgeable and very pleasant guide. Will go on other tours in the future.

Bring sunscreen, hat, sun glasses and comfortable shoes. You'll be very fortunate to get "Jorge" as your tour guide, he was excellent!

Certainly an eye opener; I've lived in my neighborhood for over 7 years and never paid much attention to the actual buildings around me. If this tour is in your neighborhood or an area you know, I would highly recommend it.

I really enjoyed learning more about the architecture in downtown Victoria. I would definitely take another tour next summer.

I was born in Victoria and except for a few years here and there, have lived here my whole life. I love older buildings so invited a friend as she had just moved back here after 30 years away. This was an extremely interesting tour!! Our guide was very enthusiastic about the buildings and really knew his material. I could not believe how much we learned in a short time frame. I really liked that at the end he went over a summary of the names of the buildings and the styles. Highly recommend this tour for everyone. I definitely want to take some of the other tours of Victoria. Absolutely loved it !! The tour guide was factual, and entertaining. ++++++

One of the best Victoria walking tours I have ever had! Our guide for the ecclesiastical tour was most informative and charmingly answered every question we threw her way. I look forward to exploring other aspects of Victoria's architecture with the AIBC in the future.

From Our Editors

Iconic buildings rise up on either side of tour groups as they trail guides who regale them with stories and historical insights. Traversing a total of 12 Victoria and Vancouver neighbourhoods, the Architectural Institute of British Columbia?s walking tours illuminate pivotal and noteworthy structures throughout the city. In Victoria, explorers can ramble through Chinatown?the oldest Chinatown in the nation?or feel the waterfront breeze while taking in the splendor of the Parliament buildings. Alternatively, Vancouver walkers can embed themselves in the city?s first neighbourhood, Strathcona, or investigate industrial expansion by roaming Yaletown.

The AIBC, established in 1920, is a self-governing body dedicated to excellence in the profession of architecture for the benefit of the public, its membership and the environment.
