A Fabulous Overview of Vancouver for 8 hours - City and Nature

This deluxe 8 hour tour includes the Vancouver City Highlights Tour showing what makes Vancouver so amazing.

In addition to the city tour, visit both of the following two attractions:

1. The Capilano Suspension Bridge is Vancouver's very first paid attraction and one of the most popular! You will have the opportunity to walk among the trees at Treetops Adventure as well as over the canyon on the new Cliffwalk, and spend a few minutes in the quaint gift shop (with fabulous homemade fudge).

2. The Grouse Mountain Skyride Gondola whisks us up to the Peak of Vancouver offering spectacular views of the city and is home to our resident Grizzly Bears. Enjoy the Lumberjack Show, Birds in Motion Show, Ranger Talks and the awe-inspiring Eye of the Wind.

Or allow me to show you some of my favourite areas in Vancouver, like Horseshoe Bay or Cypress Mountain.


Pick up at your Vancouver area hotel, the cruise ship terminal, or Vancouver airport.
Drive through Chinatown and walk through Gastown
Tour of Stanley Park
Stop at Totem Park, Prospect Point (great photo ops)
Ferry from Granville Island

A Recent Review of this tour

Loisis an exceptional guide.She had an itinerary planned but was very sensitive to the sites our group of four wanted to experience and knowledgeable enough to insert her own suggestions when we needed her.We're very tired just getting off a ship so she started with tea,coffee,pastries& conversation.After that we were off and running and the rain didn't hamper her one bit. We saw so much of the area and were back to the airport in plenty of time. Her vehicle is comfortable and roomy.She is such a delight!
