Great way to see Vancouver in a short period of time

We really enjoyed this tour of Vancouver. We had a short time visiting, and this allowed us to work in a good bit of sightseeing over 4 hours. We enjoyed the lookout, market and Stanley Park, and our tour guide Jeff was very knowledgeable. He provided lots of interesting information and answered all of our questions. We took our tour the week before Covid 19 seemed to hit full force, so it was a small group of 7 people which allowed for lots of interaction. I would highly recommend this tour.
