What You Can Expect
Take a stop at Brockton Point in Stanley Park to see the nine historic totem poles built by the First People in British Columbia. These stunning pieces of artworks reflect the rich culture of the indigenous people of the Pacific Northwest. You'll take a walk in the forest and ascend to Prospect Point, the highest point of Stanley Park, and get amazing scenic views of the North Shore Mountains, the Lions Gate Bridge, and Burrand Inlet. You'll also pass by English Bay, Vancouver's famous sunbathing region destination, and Vancouver Harbor.
You'll also take a stop at Granville Island and venture to Granville's Public Market where you'll find a variety of stalls selling beautiful homemade goods and gastronomic masterpieces. Explore the eclectic art scene by meeting and chatting with artists in their shops and viewing their unique creations made from glass to textiles.
Finally, you'll conclude your Vancouver City Highlights experience at the lookout viewing deck high atop Harbor Center Tower to get a 360 degree view of Vancouver. The glass elevator will lift you up 430 feet skyward from the street level in just 40 seconds. The view from the top will leave you breathless.

Although it was raining the morning of our tour (not the tour company's fault) and the shuttle was a few minutes later than they said (again, there were circumstances out of their control), the tour itself was excellent. The shuttle was clean: the guide was personable and knowledgeable. It might have been nice to spend a little more time in some places, but this was a wonderful way for my companions and I to get picked up from our hotel, see some of the highlights of Vancouver, and get dropped off at our cruise ship. We didn't have to worry about luggage, either. The tour company delivered all of it to our ship and it was waiting in our staterooms when we arrived onboard.
A great intro to Vancouver when time is limited by the need to board ship. Not having to worry about our luggage was a bonus
