Departure Time

10:00 AM
Your city tour begins with morning pickup at your central Vancouver hotel or Canada Place Cruise Terminal. Climb aboard the coach for a guided trip, beginning with historic Gastown. Cruise down cobbled streets and take in the atmospheric 19th-century architecture on your way to Chinatown.

Continue to Robson Street, where bustling eateries mingle with upscale retailers and independent boutiques, and to Canada Place. From your comfortable vantage point, admire the flying white sails dotting the harbor before leaving the urban center for Stanley Park, a 1,000-acre (405-hectare) oasis of 500,000 cedar, fir and hemlock trees. Take in gorgeous views of the North Shore Mountains, Lions Gate Bridge and Burrard Inlet, and marvel at First Nations totem poles in Brockton Point. 

After your park tour, skip across the water to Granville Island, where you’ll have time to explore the colorful Public Market. Browse eclectic stalls selling art, handmade goods, coffee and a range of delectable foods—a great place to buy lunch!

End your tour at the Vancouver Lookout atop Harbour Center. Take the high-speed elevator straight to the observation deck—more than 550 feet (169 meters) up—and quietly soak up the grandeur of the Vancouver and British Columbia.

Your tour ends with drop-off at the Vancouver Cruise Terminal in the afternoon.

Visit before Cruise
, Nov 2019
Sights and stops were just right. A little rain but that is expected. Driver was very knowledgeable and very prompt.

We had an amazing first time Vancouver visit. We only had 1 day, and being we had never been to Vancouver we were not sure what to do. This was so convenient, but most of all we believe we got a peek of the best the City has to offer. We had such a great time, it was absolutely beautiful. If you have a limited time this is a great alternative. Really convenient they picked us up at our hotel, took our luggage to the ship and we had a no sorry day. By the way our luggage was delivered and first to arrive on the ship,our room attendant said she had never seen that before. Thanks for all your stories and your of you amazing city!

Great Trip around the City
, Jun 2019
Our driver was Steven and he was very friendly and helpful. He took care of our luggage and made sure we arrived at the cruise port on time. We saw many sights around the city and, having our luggage already at the port, made checking in a breeze. Would definitely recommend to anyone wanting a stress free transition to the cruise ship.
Vancouver Shore Excursion Was Excellent!
, Oct 2018
Can't say enough good things about this tour! Our driver and guide were knowledgeable andenthusiastic, the itinerary took us to a cross-section of Vancouver sights and sounds such asStanley Park, Granville Island, and to the beautiful Vancouver Lookout that offered 360 degree viewsof the city and harbor. And this is just some of what was on the agenda! There was so much more!I'm very glad I took this tour! Transportation to the port was included as I was en route to a cruise ship.

This day trip around Vancouver was perfect for our day before heading out of port for our cruise to Alaska. The pickup from our hotel was exactly on time. Our bus driver/tour guide was very knowledgeable of the area and kept us laughing. We enjoyed the city tour, visit to Stanley park and market visit. We arrived at our ship in plenty of time to board our ship and we missed the crowds! Fantastic experience.
Great pre-cruise enjoyment.

The tour itself was very nice. Vancouver is a beautiful city. However, the guide spent most of his time selling tours for another day and not spending the appropriate time on the one at hand. . Disappointed.

We really enjoyed the tour, except that it happened to be on Canada's holiday, so several adjustments had to be made because of all of the people and traffic. The young man worked through it, but had to hurry and go out of the way.. He was very patient and friendly, so with all of the traffic, etc., enjoyed the tour very much! We recommend doing it,and so very convenient to go from hotel and being dropped up at port. Everything was taken care of, and luggage at the room! Definitely do this!
