Default Victoria BC shore trips

In July, I'll be on the Oosterdam when it stops for only 4 hours in Victoria BC. I am considering a shore trip for $79 which includes a visit to the "Castle" and High Tea at a landmark hotel. $79 seems a bit high!! Is the Castle worth the money? What would be some suggestions to do between 8 and midnight? Thanks!

I don't know if the Castle is worth the money, but, high tea can be $50 or more at many locations in Victoria during the "high" season.

Yes the teas are at least $40++ca usually. I guess it depends how much you want to see a castle??? Perhaps- go to the Victoria visitor site and look the area over- should have more info on the castle.

Two years ago we went on the Amsterdam and had the obligatory stop in Victoria of 4 hours duration.

We managed to viist Butchard Gardens before they closed, a very worthwhile trip if you are interested. It was made more worthwhile due to the fact that after sunset,they floodlight the whole place

I was wondering how could I see the gardens after dark. Floodlights, that's cool.
