Read what other Viator.com travelers think about the Vancouver North Shore Day Trip with Capilano Suspension Bridge and Grouse Mountain. What they loved, what they liked and what they think could be improved, it's all here to help you make the most of your next trip.
The Capilano Park is wonderful. It is very eco-friendly and well-done. Not only is there is suspension bridge, but a ridge walk, a trail suspended on the cliff with some clear floors. Beautiful views! Then, there is the Tree Top adventure where you go tree-to-tree on suspension bridges above the forest floor. Very much like a Costa Rican Rainforest trail! Grouse Mountain is a ski area by winter, tourist/hiker place by summer. The gondola ride is packed with literally 100 people each trip. Not much for picture taking, short six minute trip packed together. I have ridden gondolas before. We enjoyed the free lumberjack show and got to see one of the two grizzlies. Grouse Mountain was "OK". There was also a free birds of prey show which we didn't see.
Little did we know when booked this excursion, that free shuttles go to both places from major hotels in the area. If you are independent and would like a little more time at each site, save your money and take the free shuttles. If you want a comfortable, guided experience this is a nice trip.
This tour is worth doing. We loved Vancouver and all it had to offer. You stop at the Salmon fish hatchery on the morning tour. This was good to see. The suspension bridge was great to do - really not that scary. We did the tree tops and cliff walk as well. Time was bit limited and you really had to push yourself to do everything in a short amount of time. Grouse mountain was fantastic. The sky ride up to the top was a bit packed though - felt like sardines in a tin can. The views were fantastic though and up the top was just beautiful just to walk through and enjoy the scenery. We did not watch the logging show as we had already seen one in Alaska plus it was a very sunny day and there was not any shelter from the sun - this did not stop heaps of people watching the show though. The bears were lovely and we saw them several times walking through their huge enclosure. All in all we had a great time and would highly recommend this tour.
This enjoyable and interesting trip is worth the money. Tour guide arrived on time, good sized and clean bus, and was well informed on all aspects of our journey. Weather was perfect and sunny. Recommend it all comers.
I think this tour was awesome! Really enjoyed it. Wish we had more time at the suspension bridge but other then that had a great time

Great trip. Capiliano suspension bridge was an experience so glad we chose to do this. Loved Grouse Mountain and the lumberjack show!
Great tour very well organised with excellent guide. Shame the cloud was low over the mountain but still a great day. Pick up and drop off was great with very friendly drivers.
Excellent tour itinerary and guide!! I highly recommend this excursion!!
This tour takes around 6 hours and also took in the Salmon hatchery, our guide Gavin was very informative and looked after us magnificently, the weather was superb which afforded fantastic views of Vancouver from the top of Grouse Mountain. The walk across the bridge was a great experience, I would recommend this tour to anyone visiting Vancouver
BEST TOUR EVER! Pick up at Hotel was very prompt! Megan the tour guide was Terrific! I would recommend this tour for sure!
This tour went to the places I wanted to go, it was just a shame that the weather was awful and you couldn't see anything from Grouse Mountain. That said, still a good tour to do and I would recommend it to anyone.
This was my third trip to Capilano Bridge and Grouse Mountain, but first time with this company. It was 10 times better experience than before. They didn't make unnecessary stop at fishery. Instead, they took us straight to the bridge. We had plenty of time to do Tree-top adventure and cliff walk. After that we went to the Grouse Mountain and had plenty of time over there. Our tour guide Christian was excellent! Cheerful and friendly. He did an awesome job to keep us entertained.
Fantastic places. I walked all the different trails. Enjoyed very much.
Very enjoyable full day, lots to see and do. Excellent introduction to Canadian Mountains. Great guide.
Fun tour and nice to get picked up and dropped off at our hotel. We could have spent more time at Capilano bridge area since we also needed time to eat there. Less time was needed at grouse mountain, though beautiful to explore there.
We loved Vancouver. What a beautiful city. We toured both the Suspension bridge and Grouse Mountain. Our tour guide Sheldon was terrific. The sites are awesome. What an experience. I am glad that I brought my camcorder! Thoroughly enjoyable - the information Sheldon professionally transmitted on the bus and off the bus was terrific!
My husband son and I loved our tour. Grouse Mountain was amazing. Capilano Park was so fun. Never being to the area and having a 7 year old, also enhanced the experience for this little family of 3. Thank you Tour Guide Steve for a great day!
