When your cruise ship docks at the Vancouver port, your guide will pick you up for a half-day shore excursion. Aboard a comfortable coach, start with a Vancouver city sightseeing tour.
First, visit Stanley Park, where you’ll stop to view the renowned totem poles. After crossing the historic Lions Gate Bridge and passing Cleveland Bridge – offering great views of Capilano Lake – make your way to the famous Capilano Suspension Bridge.
Here, you’ll enjoy bird’s-eye views of the amazing canyon and thriving coastal forest as you cross the 450-foot-long (137-meter) bridge. If you’re feeling extra adventurous, do the Cliffwalk, which takes you on an exhilarating journey by foot along suspended walkways jutting out from the granite cliff face above the Capilano River. You’ll also have time at this attraction to browse the shops and enjoy lunch (own expense).
Afterward, your tour continues to Granville Island for time to explore the public market, marinas, eateries and galleries. Your next highlights are Chinatown – the 2nd-largest in North America – and the historic Gastown district. Depending on the season, you may also visit the Vancouver Lookout for awesome views (Nov-April only).
Throughout your tour, your knowledgeable guide will offer commentary about the sites you see. Your tour concludes with drop-off at the Vancouver port.
