Make the most of your time in Vancouver! Begin your 5.5-hour sightseeing excursion with pickup from your central Vancouver hotel in the late-afternoon. Climb aboard the coach, and sit back for a guided trip through this historic seaport city.
From your comfortable vantage point, see the flying white sails of Canada Place and tour the 1,000-acre (405-hectare) Stanley Park, an urban oasis of 500,000 cedar, fir and hemlock trees. Take in amazing views of the North Shore Mountains and Burrard Inlet, and admire historic First Nation totem poles in Brockton Point. Shopping-enthusiasts will enjoy cruising down trendy Robson Street, where bustling eateries mingle with upscale retailers and independent boutiques.
Next, cross Lions Gate Bridge and head into sprawling old-growth forest. You’ll hear about flourishing local plants and wildlife, and catch some awe-inspiring canyon views. For the stout-hearted visitor, head to the Cliffwalk, a suspended, glass-bottomed walkway jutting out from granite cliffs over the Capilano River. You’ll have some free time here to grab refreshments (own expense) and perhaps take the Treetops Adventure, a thrilling series of walkways sustainably attached to centuries-old Douglas firs.
Conclude your day with a visit to Granville Island's colorful Public Market, atmospheric Gastown and Chinatown – boasting the largest Chinese population outside of China! Visitors from November to April may choose to add a stop at the Vancouver Lookout to the tour (additional expense).
Your excursion ends with drop-off at your departure point in the evening.
