Choose from Three Options

  • $20 for a one-hour horse-drawn-trolley tour of the park and waterfront for two (a $40 value)

During waterfront tours, amicable drivers carry sightseers through Victoria's historic neighbourhoods—including the Parliament buildings along the Inner Harbour and Bastion Square to gaze at the province's premier courthouse. Guests on the one-hour tour can also revel in the splendour of Victoria's green spaces, such as Beacon Hill Park.

Black Beauty Line

Seasoned charioteers at Black Beauty Line navigate winding routes past Victoria’s most picturesque locales. The average 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 sites such as the Heritage Homes, whose snowy veils on winter rides melt away for spring rides 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. The well-kept carriages are also available for private event rental, often for weddings. Owner Rebecca Spray brings 30 years of caring for horses to 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.

Customer Reviews

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!
