We enjoyed our tour and trips to Grouse Mountain. Our trip to the Capilano Suspension Bridge and the wonderful Tree Top Walkways were really unique and enjoyable.
A fun family excursion, with kid friendly activities. It is much more than walking across a suspension bridge. Plan to spend 2-3 hours to experience all it has to offer. Also, be sure to look for the stamp machines and get your map stamped along the way.

Wonderful day. Wish we had more time at Capilano Suspension Bridge as there was also the Treetop and Cliff walks as well as time for lunch - I managed to do it all but needed to keep going. Perhaps some time could have been borrowed from the time spent at Grouse Mountain but still a great trip.
Excellent tour and the tour guide big round of applause to Gavin!
The tour was nice but the Best part of the tour is the Capilano Bridge and public market, think of it like a indoor fair of food, fruits and outdoor shops. You have to experience it.
The Capilano Bridge is purely amazing to see an cross over. Think of it like walking across the sky!
And once you cross there are many other smaller bridges and walks. If you have kids they will love this place. It's also very safe, and it has been engineered now at least 3 times by the government using the best engineers we were told. do don't worry about falling off they tested the weight and it can be filled hundreds of elephants and still stay standing
The public market you can spend all day there. Its like a fair, swap meet, or indoor food court.
You have too many choices. Think of it like a shopping mall food court x 1000. You will spend 30 mins trying to figure where to eat because each minute you pass a new eatery and think what's next...
The initial parts of the tour are really nothing like these two. You see a lot of downtown .
Vancouver much of it owned by the Genius family the beer company guys are actually smart investors and own over a billion dollars of Vancouver they paid pennies on the dollar for.
So overall I would recommend this but just note my opinion is the value is in the bridge and the market.
also not related to this tour if you have a chance, visit Victoria, this is really where you'll fall in love. You can take boat or sea plan there. Simply breath taking are the Butchart gardens, and entire city is fairly tale out of the books

Bus picked us up 2 hours late so they could take us to the bus that was already one hour plus into the tour. When I called they told me not to worry that I would not miss any of the tour. That was far from the truth we missed the tour of downtown and the totem poles.
Tour guide was perfect for the job!!
The day was awesome - saw so much!!
Tour guide was excellent! He really added to the experience.
This was a perfect tour, especially since we didn't have a car. Our tour guide was fabulous. The Salmon stop was okay, but not the season. Would not include this portion unless it was active. A must see! The grill at the suspension bridge was yummy, the salmon burger!
We all really enjoyed this tour. The park is beautiful. We did all of the activities and were so impressed with the scenery and the bridges. I have already shared with others about it. Gift shop is great, but quality of some items is poor. One of the kids necklace charms snapped in two within a day. Very upsetting.

Tour guide very knowledgeable and friendly. Customer service was excellent.
This was a great day out. Peter was our guide for the morning and both the Bridge and the Mountain were unique experiences in their own way. I would recommend this trip to anyone going to Vancouver.
Already submitted the review, just forgot to give a rating.
Capilano is a great place but it was just too busy!! Too many tourists in July, it would be perfect in low season!
Grouse Mountain was fantastic! The 2 bears were out and about playing in the water. I made so many photos! Love every minute of it. Due to numerous bush-fires the visibility wasn't that good so we decided against going further up the mountain. I really wanted to see the bears and I did! wow. So glad I went there!
Would love to upload some pics.
With only one day to see Vancouver, this was the solution - and a pleasant one. We loved our tour guide, who entertained and informed. The Capilano Suspension Bridge was an amazing experience to cross and was a beautiful area. Vancouver is a beautiful city and we were very impressed with the emphasis on the environment and with the outdoor living. So glad we got to see the highlights on this tour!
Fab!! Great trip with lots of information given by our guide.

A great way to see the major attractions of the city of Vancouver! Our tour guide, Herman, was nothing short of FANTASTIC!!! He was extremely humorous, knowledgeable, and allowed us ample time at each stop to enjoy the ambiance of each attraction.
Westcoast Sightseeing will pick you from your Vancouver or Richmond hotel for free! Call them to confirm if pick up is available at your hotel. They picked my family and I up from the Sandman Signature Vancouver Airport Hotel in one bus then transferred us to another bus. The transfer was seamless!
Once the tour was over, they drop you back off at your initial pickup point. Very convenient!!!
We returned to Granville Island the day after the tour. The island is filled with shops and eateries! Fresh seafood, fruits and vegetables! Everything we ate and drank here was second to none! Great sandwiches, great coffee!
IF THIS IS YOUR FIRST VISIT TO VANCOUVER, THIS TOUR IS A MUST!!!
Please extend our mahalo thank you to Herman and the other drivers I believe the guy that dropped us off was named Steve.
We will share this GREAT experience with family and friends!!!
THANK YOU WESTCOAST SIGHTSEEING!!!
very good tour, the suspension bridge was great fun and the grouse mountain was very beautiful, we wish we can spend more time at each location.
Brilliant Excursion not to be missed
The tour guide was excellent and the amount of time spent at both places were perfect for a day trip. Must see/go place if you're in Vancouver.
Our first hours in Vancouver were spent on this wonderful tour. It saved us from spending time where it would have been a waste, and aimed us at places to visit and spend extra time. It gave us a general view of this wonderful city by a wonderful tour guide.
A long day... We didn't really enjoy Grouse Mountain that much sorry to say - but loved Capilano. I think what we didn't like about Grouse Mountain is that we felt we weren't able to make our own decisions about where to go and when, we were herded onto the cable car in a big group squished like sardines, then once at the top, we were told as a group to walk up the hill to the bear viewing place, only then were we given 'free time' to wander, get a coffee/meal and then meet at the cable car to all go back down in a group. We would've done things a little different so we weren't in with everyone else you can't see anything if in a huge group.
Capilano - pretty much we just entered in the gates as a group, we were asked to all walk to the suspension bridge in a group but I think people just took off and did their own things and then all met up again at 'home time'. One lady even caught another free shuttle back to her hotel room instead of waiting for the tour bus to return to the hotels.
I have recommended Capilano to others - the fish farm wasn't our cup of tea - would have preferred more time at Capilano to be honest.
Still a good tour, lots of tour for your money.
A great Tour tho could have done with more time at the Capilano Bridge to the cliff walk as well as the Suspension Bridge. We did go,on a Sinday which was busy with families as well as tours like us. Pleased we went.
The tour was informative and well organised. I enjoyed it very much. I would recommend it to my friends.
