Live the dream with the Villa Eyrie Resort’s one-of-a-kind Vancouver Island classic tour.
Nestled deep in the pristine wilderness found on Vancouver Island’s Malahat region, the Villa Eyrie Resort is only 35 minutes from downtown Victoria, yet it resides a world apart in terms of experience. In a city where pub crawls and afternoon tea are as proliferate as ever, Villa Eyrie Resort offers its guests the chance to indulge in Victoria’s charms in a way that no other property offers: from behind the wheel of a vintage luxury vehicle.
Guests participating in the Resort’s Vancouver Island Classic Tour will have the chance to ease into one of several classic Porsche or Mercedes-Benz models manufactured between 1960 and 2000 on this full-day tour that is offered between April and October and hit the road in search of the best that Victoria and its surroundings have to offer.
Starting with a delicious included breakfast at the Villa Eyrie Resort’s Summit Restaurant, guests will immediately get behind the wheel of their vintage luxury car and set out on the highway for the drive into the heart of Downtown Victoria. Cruise past the inner harbor and along Victoria’s most famous sights including Government Street and Beacon Hill Park before continuing on to the Coachwerks Restorations facility tucked away in the city’s Burnside community. Here, guests can learn what it takes to bring these vintage vehicles to life – and what is involved with keeping these classic beauties purring along.
No journey to Vancouver Island is complete without a visit to the world-renowned Butchart Gardens. Designated as a National Historic Site of Canada, the gardens were the original creation of Jennie Butchart, who slowly turned the massive former quarry near Brentwood Bay into the floral splendor it is today. Villa Eyrie’s Vancouver Island Classic Tour includes both admission and lunch in the park, plus time to explore independently.
After a road-tour to nearby Saanich, guests return to the Villa Eyrie Resort where a suitably classic dinner has been prepared to get the tastebuds revving.
Package pricing starts at $899* per person and includes the rental of a classic automobile along with fuel; insurance; certified instructors from the Vancouver Island Motorsport Circuit for road driving; food and drinks prepared by the Summit Restaurant and Butchart Gardens, along with photos of the day’s adventures.
