  • What You Can Expect

    Begin your day at Gastown, Vancouver's historic district where you'll stroll down the cobbled streets and explore the 19th century buildings. Next, head to Vancouver's Chinatown, one of North America largest Chinatown and soak in the lively cultural atmosphere. Then, you'll go to Robson Street, Vancouver's famous shopping district in the heart of downtown Vancouver. At the Canada Place, see the beautiful panoramic sails by the water and architectural landmark of Vancouver.

    Take a stop at Brockton Point in Stanley Park to see the nine historic totem poles built by the First People in British Columbia. These stunning pieces of artworks reflect the rich culture of the indigenous people of the Pacific Northwest. You'll take a walk in the forest and ascend to Prospect Point, the highest point of Stanley Park, and get amazing scenic views of the North Shore Mountains, the Lions Gate Bridge, and Burrand Inlet. You'll also pass by English Bay, Vancouver's famous sunbathing region destination, and Vancouver Harbor.

    You'll also take a stop at Granville Island and venture to Granville's Public Market where you'll find a variety of stalls selling beautiful homemade goods and gastronomic masterpieces. Explore the eclectic art scene by meeting and chatting with artists in their shops and viewing their unique creations made from glass to textiles.

    Finally, you'll conclude your Vancouver City Highlights experience at the lookout viewing deck high atop the Vancouver Lookout to get a 360-degree view of Vancouver. The glass elevator will lift you up 430 feet skyward from the street level in just 40 seconds. The view from the top will leave you breathless.

Jeff was very helpful and courteous. Brandon was knowledgeable, entertaining, and such a delight to have as a tour guide. I would book a tour with him again. Loved the tour and was so very grateful that he dropped us all 6 of us @ the cruise terminal. Thank you for a memorable day in Vancouver.

Great tour for those meeting a cruise ship, you get picked up from your hotel, and you get 4 hours to view some of the beauty of Vancouver. Enough to make you want to come back and spend more time. The tour drops you off right at the cruise terminal. No hassles.

Excellent pre-cruise city tour



This was an awesome way to see the city in a short period of time. It's super convenient as the pick you up right from your hotel along with your luggage. In the past I've had to coordinate what to do with my luggage on embarkation day for a cruise, however with this tour there is no hassle. They take you see all of the major Vancouver sites and then drop you and your luggage directly at the cruise terminal for check in. The tour guide was super friendly and knowledgeable!
