Seasoned charioteers at Black Beauty Line navigate winding routes past Victoria’s most picturesque locales. The 30-minute tour circles the neo-baroque Parliament buildings that border the Inner Harbour, and clip-clops toward historic James Bay Village. Riders can snuggle under provided quilts as buggies glide past the Heritage Homes, whose snowy veils melt away come spring to reveal manicured gardens and groggy lawn ornaments. Along the way, charioteers impart tales and tidbits about the tour attractions, and good-naturedly pose for photos after the ride.

Owner Rebecca Spray brings 30 years of caring for horses to the Black Beauty Line. As a member of Carriage Operators of North America, she ensures that horses are healthy, well groomed and not actually a horse impersonator looking for real-world experience. Pets are welcome to come along for the ride, and everyone must make reservations before the tour.

Our customers loved this deal last year, earning Black Beauty Line a spot on Groupon’s Best of 2011 list.

The ride was great and the driver was wonderful but I was surprised the roof of the carriage was in tatters, the brackets holding it up was very rusty and the plastic flower were very faded.

Our horse-drawn carriage tour was awesome! We were given the choice between a tour of downtown Victoria and the harbour, or a tour of Historic James Bay. We chose James Bay, and our driver pointed out all the beautiful old houses, as well as some landmarks such as Emily Carr's House!
