This was a lot of fun! Very informative, loved hearing parts of history. The savoury food was really good and portion size (sample) was good. I was very disappointed with the sweet samples. I don’t have a sweet tooth but the sample size was pathetic. Tia was so fun and an awesome guide!

Loved Vancouver. We thought it was great value for money. However Sally our tour guide was far too talkative and kept saying ' and a' far too often. She was a very pleasant lady who obviously loved her job but needs to know when to stop talking too much.

Pick up was on time. Rick was our driver and guide and expertly did both. He shared a lot of information and was extremely well spoken.This itinerary was excellent. Walking the suspension bridge was an amazing experience. I had a great time - that's saying a lot, coming from a person who's scared of heights. Grouse Mountain was beautiful and had many fun attractions. The salmon hatchery was understandably less exciting, after visiting the first 2 stops but still an interesting place to check out. The kids loved all of it.
Capilano suspension bridge park is stunning!! Definitely a must if you’re in Vancouver. Grouse mountain was beautiful But unfortunately we had terrible weather. Definitely would recommend this trip. Desmond was very informative and a great guide

From the moment of Vancouver's modern founding in 1886, Granville Street has always held center stage. For a short time the new city was actually named Granville, after a British politician at the time Lord Leveson, the 2nd Earl Granville. But when the Canadian Pacific Railway's planners decided the tiny logging settlement was going to be the western terminus of their grand nation-building railway, they wanted people in the rest of Canada to be able to find the place on a map. Many people had heard of Vancouver Island, and it was nearby, so the name Vancouver was chosen instead. To avoid hurting the feelings of the the earl for losing his naming rights to the city, the main street connecting the harbor and the highest point in downtown Vancouver was named in his honor.
