Your half-day sightseeing tour begins with pickup at select Vancouver hotels or the cruise ship terminal. Grab a seat in the comfortable coach for a guided trip through this vibrant seaport city, starting in Gastown. Hear about the historic district from your local guide as you cruise down cobbled streets, then continue to Chinatown—boasting the largest Chinese population outside of China.

Leave the urban terrain for Stanley Park, a remarkable 1,000-acre (405-hectare) wonderland of 500,000 cedar, fir, and hemlock trees. Stop at Prospect Point—the park’s highest peak—for splendid vistas of the North Shore Mountains, Lions Gate Bridge, and Burrard Inlet, and marvel at First Nation totem poles at Brockton Point.

If shopping is on your to-do list, enjoy a stroll down Robson Street, where bustling eateries mingle with upscale retailers and independent boutiques, as well as touring Granville Island's colorful Public Market, selling art, coffee, and a range of delectable foods.

Conclude your day with a trip to the Vancouver Lookout atop Harbour Center. Take the high-speed elevator straight to the observation deck—more than 550 feet (169 meters) up—and admire the grandeur of the city, the mountains and the majestic Pacific Ocean.

Your tour ends with drop-off at your original departure point.

Great way to see Vancouver in a short period of time
, Mar 2020
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.
Great intro to Vancouver

Rodrigo was friendly and knowledgeable. Great tour but I would have liked to stop at Gastown/Chinatown for a bit rather than driving by (instead of so much time at Granville). Highly recommended especially for solo travellers like me
Day well spent.

It was a good way to see many spots especially because I was on my own. Tour moved at a good pace I just would have preferred longer stops and more stops to look around.
