Jason, our tour guide was excellent. Very informative. Great tour and our luggage was delivered to ship while we were touring. It gave us a great view of Vancouver in a short amount of time. Stanley park and Granville Island. Then, we were dropped off at cruise terminal.

We had 5 hours before we had to board our ship, this tour fit in perfectly. They were on time, picked us up at our hotel, and best part they took our luggage and at the end of the tour dropped us and our luggage off at our ship. I wasn't sure we could see everything described on the tour, but we did and I didn't feel rushed. Our driver was very pleasant and knowledgable.
