What You Can Expect

Vancouver City Sightseeing Tour

Totems in Stanley Park, Vancouver

After pickup, your tour starts in Gastown, Vancouver's historic district, where you'll follow your guide on a stroll down the cobbled streets past 19th-century buildings.

After soaking up the lively cultural atmosphere of Chinatown, one of North America's largest Chinatowns, head to Robson Street, Vancouver's famous shopping district in the heart of downtown Vancouver.

You'll then explore famous Stanley Park. At Brockton Point, see the nine historic totem poles built by the First People in British Columbia. These stunning pieces of artwork reflect the rich culture of the indigenous people of the Pacific Northwest. 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.

Pass English Bay, Vancouver's famous sunbathing destination, and Vancouver Harbor. You'll then visit Granville Island, where you'll explore Public Market's variety of stalls selling beautiful homemade goods and gastronomic masterpieces. Immerse yourself in the eclectic art scene by meeting and chatting with artists in their shops and viewing their unique creations made from glass and textiles.

For the 10am tour, you'll conclude at the lookout viewing deck high atop the Vancouver Lookout. The glass elevator will lift you up 430 feet skyward in just 40 seconds, giving you a 360-degree view of Vancouver. Admission to the Bloedel Floral Conservatory is included for the 2pm tour.

The tour exceeded my expectations. The guide was exceptional and very organized. If you're a visitor travelling alone, this is the way to go. I will tour with Viator from here on wherever Viator is and am certain it will be the same wonderful experience.

The tour guide Basille was excellent. He was very informative being native to Vancouver. This tour included the right time to get an overall tour of the city to allow decision on where to spend more time. Good to do this the 1st day to plan rest of the stay.

It was really a good tour. I had forgotten it was 4 hours and panicked at first not knowing what we would do for 4 hours. However, it was great and time flew by. The guide was knowledgeable and able to navigate around the city well. We made a few stops and got to see a good representation of what Vancouver was all about.
I sat in the back and although bumpy, the seats were nice.
