I bought a Groupon for a 30-minute carriage ride from Black Beauty Line, but now I've received an email from Groupon saying the deal will no longer be available. I've contacted Groupon customer service to see if I can get a refund, but wanted to post this warning to others.

Awful service. The manager was extremely rude and I've heard many rumors about how the company had all its carriages seized, as well as two wagons not owed by the company. Apparently they didn't notify the owners of these other vehicles that the CRA was coming to seize them. Not a business I want to support

We took a carriage ride with Black Beauty Lines on a cold crisp evening through James Town and city centre in Victoria. Very informative and very romantic, we had a warm feather quilt to keep us warm and the sites were great. The parliament buildings were lit up and beautiful lights throughout the downtown area. Well worth the money, we... More

How disappointing to arrive, have to wait 15 minutes for the driver to appear for our booked appointment, and then have her not acknowledge us in any way prior to spending 10 minutes on her... More

We've visited Victoria 32 times over the years, but had never done one of the carriage tours offered along the Inner Harbor area. A couple weeks before our most recent trip, I found a Groupon offer ($45 for the $90 30-minute tour) so, knowing our traveling companions/friends would also enjoy it, I made the purchase. Weather forecasts didn't look too... More

We used the Black Beauty Line on Monday July 2nd and it was great. We booked an evening tour and it was raining but our driver took us around the downtown, with the carriage roof attached, and it was great! The kids loved it. We had warm blankets to curl up under and enjoyed the tour very much. We had... More
