This guided tour fulfilled my curiosity about Chinese culture by using all of my senses. It began in a Chinese garden filled with the ancient beauty of architectural simplicity that appeared to be metaphoric and was explained so by our guide, Bob Sung. We moved into the smells of bakery goods at a famous bakery and tasted one of the more popular treats. We discovered uses of herbs and such in the medicine shops. We learned the use of culinary tools, we shopped through a local grocery store and discovered new spices and sauces. We ended with a lunch of delicious Dim Sum in one of China Town's finer restaurants. This tour surpassed my expectations and I'm very pleased to strongly recommend it to anyone visiting Vancouver's China Town.
Totally worth it!! We went into shops and food places and drugstores that we would never have ventured into on our own. Our guide, Tom, lives in the neighborhood and is very well versed. Don't miss the Dr. Sun Yat Sen gardens ... They are beautiful. Great dim sum also,
Try it you will be pleased
A lot of fun with great narration! 2 different routes - park and city. Loved the Rose Garden, Aquarium and Lookout!
This is a great way of seeing Vancouver and the guides are full of history of the area. We loved it. We went to Stanley Park and saw the gardens and the aquarium. We spent some time in Gastown which was fun. We went to the Lookout Observation Deck and saw Vancouver from every angle. The bus went through Chinatown which is really neat. This is the best way to see Vancouver and learn about its history. Each driver has his\her own style which makes it very interesting too.
We spent a rainy September morning strolling round Vancouver aquarium. It has a wide variety of fish and sea mammals and some beautiful displays of jellyfish. There is a 4D showing of Planet Earth which is great fun, educational but with added bubbles! We spent ages watching the sea otters which are so cute and entertaining! The Vancouver lookout is worth a visit, unfortunately it was a bit gray and miserable when we went up, but your ticket is valid for a day and night visit and there are great views of Vancouver. The Hop-on hop-off trolley tour was good. It offered a bus from each stop every 10 minutes. It was slightly let down by some of the drivers who's live commentary was a bit lacking, however it serves all the major tourist sights. If you get a good commentary it is worth staying on and completing the loop to listen to it as the next driver may not be so good. There are two lines and your ticket is valid for two days for both. We really did need two days! I would recommend stopping at Dr Sun Yat Sen's Chinese garden and the Vancouver police museum. When we exchanged our voucher for our tour tickets they actually gave us free entry to either attraction which was a nice bonus! Overall a great package which I would recommend.
