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.

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.
