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.

Tour driver was very friendly and knowledgeable.

The four-hour Vancouver City Tour was great. Our tour guide Kelly was wonderful. She was very personable and courteous, and she was bursting with interesting information about the city. We had a great time and would definitely recommend this tour to others.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2015

Taken in the weather shown in the photo, this tour would be unbeatable for the content, professionalism and comfort provided. For that I must offer five stars. Unfortunately there was torrential rain throughout! This was obviously detrimental to our enjoyment although the tour guide's information and attempts to keep a jolly atmosphere going was a bonus. The final downer was going up the tower to conclude the tour only to be able to see - absolutely nothing thanks to the dense low cloud.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2015

The best 360 city tour we've ever taken - we saw everything we wanted to see and then some. Our driver and tour guide had an enormous and intimate amount of area knowledge - he made it fun!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2015

A perfect introduction to Vancouver. Our tour covered the major areas of the city with two stops in Stanley Park and extended stops at the Bloedel Floral Conservatory and Graville Island. The pickup and delivery from our downtown hotel was efficient and a real plus.

The bus was comfortable, clean, and not overly large. Our driver was personable and skilled at navigating the city while providing useful narration and information on each of the city's areas. We found this tour was very helpful in planning which and how much time we would allocate to areas of the city for further exploration during our limited vacation time in Vancouver.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2015
