What You Can Expect

Vancouver City Sightseeing Tour

Totems in Stanley Park, Vancouver

Your 4-hour sightseeing tour begins with pickup at your select Vancouver hotel. 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 in Brockton Point.

If shopping is on your to-do list, you’ll love riding 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 departure point after 4 hours of exploration.

Upgrade your experience with tickets to the renowned Vancouver Art Gallery, featuring a diverse range of work, or to FlyOver Canada, a 10-minute flight simulation experience. These tickets will be provided to you at the end of your tour to be used that day or the next day. If you choose this option, you will be dropped off at either the Gallery or FlyOver Canada and will need to make your own arrangements to return to your hotel. 

Please note:
You must include hotel information at checkout and call the tour operator ahead to confirm your booking.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended May 2016

This is a great way for an overview of the city. We saw the most important parts and ended at the Lookout Tower where we could see almost all of our trip within the city. Our guide Juan was fine and he knows his city. Being picked up and dropped off at our hotel was very nice. Going to Granville in this way saves a headache in looking for parking.

We had a great guide, a young English gentleman, whose name escapes me. He drove us around and showed us so many sights. It wasn't the best of days but he still managed to make it memorable. We even got to see a squirrel and a raccoon which I thought was absolutely amazing! He took us through areas that we would not have seen otherwise. He also shared some other tourist destinations which were awesome! So thank you! And we will use Viator again when travelling as it made planning a whole lot easier!!

Tour guide was great! He went pout of his way to really explain everything we saw and also had the bus driver stop at two extra stops so we and another couple didn't have such a long walk to our hotels. Stand up guy!
