Use your credit card for purchases as the exchange rate will be calculated automatically. Beautiful city. The shuttle bus that cost $11.00 US per person Round Trip is available at the pier. Good value. They have one drop off and pick up point in downtown Victoria on the corner of Government & Fort streets. Easy walk from there to food, sights or shopping.

We didn't do an excursion here. There was a shuttle just as you got off the ship that would take you downtown and we just walked around all the shops. It was especially nice to finish up some souvenir shopping.

Pretty. The hop-on-hop off buses, and tour buses, leave from in front of the Empress, but don't go as frequently as one might expect from Euro experiences. We lucked-into a CVS tour bus with only 8 people and a good guide, that went to all the places we wanted, incl. the "Castle," (really a manor-house), and the view point, with a bonus ride through lovely area of big homes in Oak Bay. Tip: the pub up the street from the Empress that is supposed to be Irish is not traditional, more a gastro-pub (with Nachos, o'mi'gosh!) and the "Irish Stew" isn't.

Our itinerary only allowed for a 5 1/2 hour stop. But we managed to get to the Butchart Gardens for a 2 1/2 hour visit and it was amazing.
