Vancouver City Sightseeing Tour

Totems in Stanley Park, Vancouver

After pickup (from select hotels only), your 4-hour tour starts in Gastown, Vancouver's historic district, along cobbled streets past 19th-century buildings. Listen to engaging commentary from your guide about the popular neighborhoods you’ll be passing through.

Soak up the lively cultural atmosphere of Chinatown, one of North America's largest Chinatowns, and drive through Robson Street, Vancouver's trendy shopping district in the heart of downtown Vancouver.

Enter the urban oasis of Stanley Park and see Brockton Point’s nine historic totem poles built by the First People in British Columbia. Ascend to Prospect Point, the highest point of Stanley Park, and capture amazing views of the North Shore Mountains, the Lions Gate Bridge and Burrard Inlet.

Pass English Bay, Vancouver's sunbathing destination, and Vancouver Harbor. On Granville Island, explore Public Market's stalls selling gastronomic masterpieces and homemade goods made from glass and textiles.

At Vancouver Lookout, a glass elevator lifts you up 430 feet skyward, in just 40 seconds, giving you incredible panoramas of Vancouver. Your tour ends with drop-off at your departure point.

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!

By taking this tour we fell in love with Vancouver. The city is beautiful and everywhere we went we encountered people who friendly and proud of their city. The tour was perfect for someone like us who had only one day to tour the city. It gave us a good and balanced view of all the highlights of Vancouver.
