(Fisgard Lighthouse / Be a Tourist)

A staple of Victoria, Be a Tourist is back for its 2020 edition with not only the same deals you know and love, but a ton of new offers too!

Which is exactly why their all new itinerary builder is going to come in handy – because with so many great deals and freebies, it will be hard to just choose a few – and they take all of the guesswork and planning off your plate!

Whether it’s the best Victorian experience for newbies, a day in the downtown core or even the perfect staycation for you and your family, Be a Tourist has got you covered with all of those little details – so you can enjoy this well-loved event to ts fullest.


Be a Tourist officially kicks off this February 27th and runs for five fun-filled days until March 2nd – and with over 60 deals including 25 freebies, now is a better time than ever to grab your wristband.

Wristbands – which give you access to ALL the great deals during Be a Tourist Week – are on sale now, available online and at all Save-On-Foods locations.

Keep them for yourself or share them with others – because who doesn’t want to give great experiences as gifts?

Also in the spirit of giving, with every ticket purchased, you’re contributing a $1 to the Victoria Hospital Foundation – as if you need another reason to grab your wristband today.

Even better, for the first time, Be a Tourist has partnered up with the Cridge Centre for the Family to support locals by donating wristbands to the families in need – meaning for every 3 wristbands purchased, two will be donated to those who need them most!

From experiences like private wine tours with Tesla Tours at 20% off, to free admission to the iconic Butchart Gardens, to buy one get one free ice creams at downtown Victoria’s new gem Perverted Ice Cream, there’s a little bit of something for everyone!
