See the main tourist areas of Vancouver - say "I've been there"

Welcome to Vancouver in 2017! Every day is amazing in the "most livable city in the World". This action-packed, full day tour features the most popular sights and most polished parts of the city with me as your knowledgeable local guide. This is also a fantastic Shore Excursion if you are arriving by Cruise Ship (or Train).

This tour is for people who are visiting for the first time and only have a limited time. We'll see all of the places you would see on an ordinary tour but with the guidance of someone who was born in Vancouver and loves playing tourist in his own town.

Make sure your camera is ready!

Stanley Park alone has an incomparable Seawall, the Totem Poles, Old Growth Forest, several beaches, and sporting activities. Children of all ages will enjoy the mini railroad, kid's zoo and Aquarium. For the active, touring by cycle, inline skates or jogging are great alternatives.


We should see:

Vancouver's Downtown Area
Stanley Park, including Totem Poles, Seawall, beaches and various lookouts
Tour main commercial streets and buildings of significance in the Downtown Area
View tourist area of Gastown and Canada Place
Visit to Granville Island
