Wow...terrific tour! Saw it all and then some!
The guide Michael Lawrence, was amazing. Very knowledgeable. Comfortable van. Very personalized tour. We used it to get a good idea of where we want to go back and visit and spend more time.
This tour was outstanding and well worth the extra $! There were four people in the tour, which made it very personal. Mike did such a great job of making Vancouver come alive! Thanks, Mike!
Our tour of Vancouver was fantastic! Our guide was awesome - very nice and extremely knowledgeable. We highly recommend this tour if you have limited time to see this beautiful city!
We had a great day with Mike Lawrence. We were visiting Vancouver in our RV and on this trip we were staying at the Burnaby Cariboo RV park, which is outside of Vancouver proper. No problem, Mike was here promptly at 9:15 AM to pick us up for our tour. Mike drives a nice newer Mercedes Sprinter Van that has room for 12. On this day, we would only have one other traveller, Anne - a retired school principal from Melbourne, Australia. So, it was like we had our own private tour. Mike was a very interesting guy with deep roots here in British Columbia. He has managed a wide variety of tours - including wine country tours, fishing tours, outdoor / adventure tours. He is also a modern renaissance man with education in forestry, art, cooking and teaching. Our tour lasted 5 hours and it included both driving to various sites around the city where he would park and guide us on foot. It covered all the major sites of the city. We started out near the Convention Center, where we saw the 2010 Olympic flame and great views of the bay. We saw seaplanes taking off and landing and beautiful vistas of the city skyline and Stanley Park. We then went to Stanley park where Mike's knowledge of forestry gave us a very interesting background on the trees of the area and how logging has impacted the ecosystem. We also learned a lot about how Stanley Park came to be and the original inhabitants, the native Indians that occupied this ares originally. We visited the Shaunessy Heights area, Yale Town, Gas Town, Granville Public Market and China Town. It was great! At the end, Mike stopped at La Casa Gelato, where they have 258 flavors that are all made on premises. Fantastic. He was a fountain of knowledge on where to get great meals, great deals on shopping and places to have fun!
If you go to Vancouver try and get a guide called Michael Lawrence he will provide a very knowledgeable guide with humour throughout
I would honestly say his love of Vancouver has been very infectious
Will certainly try and come back another year
Thanks Lawrence tours
Small group tour in a nice Mercedes van! Michael has lived in Vancouver for years and gives an extensive city tour complete with history and lots of commentary. We walked Granville Island at lunch time and bought lunch from one of the vendors. Michael covers many miles and you will come away with a new appreciation for the city of Vancouver!
This was an absolutely amazing tour, the best I have ever taken. Michael Lawrence is a wealth of knowledge who shares with you. I learnt so much on this tour. I had read up on Vancouver before leaving Australia but the learnt more with Michael. I would highly recommend his company to anyone wishing to do a City tour of Vancouver. You get that bit more and then some. definite 5 star rating from me.
