Visit Arts, Crafts, Music, and the "Stock Market" with a local private guide


Granville Island is one of the true gems within Vancouver. Make this your one stop Private Tour if you have limited time. Featuring a unique and beautiful produce market, world-class artisans and live entertainment throughout the site, you will get a compressed sense of the very best of Vancouver.

For the food-lover: There is no shortage of fresh foods, variety of ready-made meals, baked goods, beautifully prepared sweets and flavors from around the world.

For the sight-seer: Stroll the boardwalk and see Vancouver's False Creek, its Bridges and the finest urban redevelopment area in North America.

For the culture-buff: At any time during the week, street performers, artists and theater talent can be found displaying their wares and surprising visitors with their creativity.

For the gift-seeker: Souvenirs are readily available but if you're looking for that perfect something-special, there's no place in the city like Granville Island.

You'll make discoveries that you didn't think were possible!
