In less than 3 hours Walk the Best of Downtown and Stanley Park


The tour starts in front of the Pan Pacific Hotel and cruise ship terminal, then to the Olympic Flame mountain views. We hug the waterfront parkland with the city on one side and the ocean and mountains on the other.
We will then enter beautiful Stanley Park and for an hour we will explore the forests and gardens, get close and personal with totem poles, and explore the 8000 year history of human occupation. This park is continuously ranked one of the Greatest Parks in the World.
We then will hop on a bus and 10 minutes later we will be back downtown. We recommend an 8:30 am P. S. T. start time but will accept tours until 2:00 pm.

Itinerary

The walking tour starts in front of the Pan Pacific Hotel and cruise ship terminals at the information kiosk. The mountains and ocean makes for a very beautiful and dramatic background to meet and discuss the tour. We then will walk west past the convention centre and Olympic flame. We will then hug the coast, pass float planes, outdoor art, and yachts; all the while with islands, mountains and a working harbor on our right. We will then enter Stanley Park and spend an hour in its gardens, and forests. We will visit the Totem Pole display as well as various outdoor art displays. We then will catch a bus in the park that in less than ten minutes will take us back into downtown. We will then explore many of the beautiful streets and buildings of downtown Vancouver. Normally we will end the tour near the Art Gallery unless we have made prior arrangements.
