VICTORIA, British Columbia, Feb. 26, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- CVS Sightseeing, the premier sightseeing and charter company in the Victoria area, now offers daily hop-on hop-off sightseeing tours to provide added flexibility for travelers. Unlike traditional charter and sightseeing excursions, the Victoria Hop-On Hop-Off tours allow guests the freedom to leave the bus and explore. Tickets are valid for up to three full days, allowing travelers to the area to experience all that Victoria has to offer at their own pace.
The new hop-on hop-off tours last for 90 minutes in driving time alone and feature the following Victoria landmarks and attractions:
- Cook Street Village
- Craigdarroch Castle
- Oak Bay Village
- Beacon Hill Park
What sets these elite tours apart from ordinary sightseeing arrangements is the flexibility they provide for guests. Travelers with a particular interest in Craigdarroch Castle, for instance, can spend hours exploring the 39 rooms of this exquisite Victorian mansion. The next day can be spent bargain-hunting in Victoria's Chinatown, the oldest in all of Canada and a truly immersive cultural environment. This added flexibility ensures that each guest on the Victoria Hop-On Hop-Off tours can design his or her own unique sightseeing experience. All CVS Cruise Victoria buses feature open-view construction and are equipped with restroom facilities for added comfort and convenience. Weather permitting, they can be configured for open-air access as well. While on the bus, passengers enjoy live commentary by knowledgeable bus drivers who provide in-depth information on things to see and do at each stop along the way. Along with the five scheduled stops, the tour also incorporates a scenic trip through the Uplands and to the famous Mount Tolmie Viewpoint and its exceptional views of the surrounding area.
The Victoria Hop-On Hop-Off tours start downtown at the Fairmont Empress Hotel located at 721 Government Street. Cruise ship passengers can arrange for pick-up at the Ogden Point Cruise Ship Terminal in Victoria; advanced notice is required for this pick-up service. Dedicated pick-up service is also available for selected hotels, including the Harbour Towers, Victoria Marriott, Royal Scot, Grand Pacific Hotel and others in the Victoria area.
