See the sights inside Vancouver, but outside the Downtown Core with a private guide
Explore the beautiful city of Vancouver but from outside the downtown core. A very enjoyable Shore Excursion alternative to the touristy stops in the busy areas.
Not everyone in Vancouver likes to live amongst the concrete, blinking neon and non-stop street activity. If condos, skyscapers and one-way traffic are not part of your tourist wish list, come see the greater side of Vancouver.
This tour features the area south of Downtown Vancouver including the chic South Granville area, Queen Elizabeth Park, the strip of beaches on the West Side and the University Endowment Lands.
Granville Island, Van Dusen Gardens, Fraser River and other locations and neighborhoods may also be added to this tour upon request. Another option is the UBC Museum of Anthropology and Japanese Nitobe Gardens.
We can craft a very special tour together!

Our guide for an outstanding four-hour UnDowntown tour of Vancouver, Winston, knows this city like a true insider. Born and raised in Vancouver, Winston gave us a very helpful introduction to the different neighborhoods, beautiful views of the skyline and mountains to the north, and walks through Queen Elizabeth Park and VanDusen Park, topped off with a memorable treetop walk on the catwalks located across the Capilano River after a daredevil stroll over Capilano Suspension Bridge.
