Mahara met us at our accommodation in Vancouver and we visited the Capilano Suspension Bridge. Excellent location except it rained heavily. We then had lunch at Horseshoe Bay before going on to Squamish for the Sea to Sky Gondola ride. However the weather was awful, torrential rain and clouds so Mahara suggested that we went to Granville Island. Very good suggestion well worth the visit. Mahara was an excellent guide, provided us with all of the info and we have no hesitation in recommending her to others
