if you’re thinking of visiting us this year! Events such as the
Classic Boat Festival, Symphony Splash, Dragon Boat Races,
International Buskers Festival… year-round theatre, concerts, sailing,
golfing, walking and exploring… Victoria really is A City For All Seasons!
Southern Vancouver Island has a rich and colourful history! I enjoy sharing it with visitors from all over the world, showing them the best of Victoria - our capital city and the jewel in British Columbia's crown! (See Guided Tours page for sample tours available).
For those who have enjoyed my stories about Victoria's early days and colourful
characters, my books continue to be popular items on bookstore shelves.
"Building Victoria: Men, Myths and Mortar." introduces you to the people behind
our best-known downtown heritage buildings. All are on, or within a short
distance of the Inner Harbour.
Danda’s latest book, “Government Street: Victoria’s Heritage Mile,”
celebrates the City of Victoria’s 150th birthday with a lively, colourful,
closer look at where it all began -
on Government Street!
If you live in Victoria… lived here in the past… are visiting or expecting
visitors... you will want these books on your bookshelf to peruse at
your leisure! Copies are available from your favourite BC bookstore, or

Another great gift idea for yourself or others – "Explore Victoria By Car!" - a self-guided driving tour on CD! (See Danda's Driving Tour page for details)!
