Vancouver's highlights, including Stanley Park, Gastown, and Granville Island (larger group option available)


Want to know why Vancouver has been voted one of the top cities in the world? Come with me to experience a driving tour of Vancouver parks, posh and not-so-posh neighborhoods, seaside spots, historic sites and markets.

We will visit Vancouver's Stanley Park, with totem poles, and do a driving tour of historic Gastown, Chinatown, and English Bay. We will drive and/or stop in Coal Harbour and Yaletown and other areas surrounded by our seawalls such as Kitsilano Beach, depending upon our time.

We'll have fun shopping and eating at Granville Market, one of the largest in North America, with no chain stores. This tour can be customized or just relax and experience the best that Vancouver has to offer.

If time, we will visit the posh Shaughnessy area. During the spring blossom time, we will visit Queen Eizabeth Park. No additional fees for this tour.

Your guide is a Vancouver-born traveller.

A Recent Review of this tour

Our day with Mahara was lovely and special. She started out asking what types of things we wanted - did we want to shop, hike, etc. Mahara took us through the entire city with her knowledge of the history and growth of Vancouver. She was interesting about each spot she took us to, and cognizant that I had some walking difficulties. Her car was clean, she was so very nice. It was a wonderful day of learning about Vancouver and seeing all the things we had hoped. HIGHLY RECOMMEND
