Tour Itinerary

Vancouver Delights Tour Details

Stanley Park - The crown jewel of our city. Stanley Park is a 1000-acre playground with stunning city views, mountain backdrops, and the salty smell of the Pacific Ocean. Enjoy a stop at the Totem Poles and see the iconic sails of Canada Place. Then drive on to Prospect Point, the highest part of the park. Marvel at views of the Lions Gate Bridge with a scenic background of the Coastal Mountain range.

English Bay - Drive out of the park and along one of the city's urban beaches, English Bay. Get a real sense of how fortunate the locals are with access to seaside walkways, astounding views and sandy beaches. Surprisingly, despite Vancouver being a temperate rainforest, palm trees continue to thrive in this area.

Gastown - Known as the heart of Vancouver, this is where it all started when Gassy Jack Deighton laid the foundation of this great west coast city (okay, he opened a saloon). See Maple Tree Square, Vancouver's oldest architecture, and the famous steam-powered clock.

Chinatown - Developed at the turn of the last century by Chinese immigrants who came to work during the gold rush and construct the railroad. Great restaurants, shopping, and interesting architecture (like the world's thinnest commercial building), all for your senses to feast upon.

Canada Place and Vancouver Harbour - Canada Place doubles as the city's terminal for Alaskan cruises while also as an icon of Vancouver Harbour.

Granville Island - This tiny peninsula features local food and great art. Spend time browsing artisan workshops and stop by the pier for views of the harbour. Visit the Granville Island Public Market to sample fresh produce and try local flavours. Not far from the city center, feel free to ask us about making this your drop off location at the end of your tour. Yaletown will be visited on Dec 26th while Granville Island is closed.

Vancouver Lookout - No tour of the city is complete without being able to see the entire city from above. Do it with 360-degree views while high atop one of Vancouver's tallest buildings.

The Capilano Suspension Bridge - While surrounded by the ancient towering trees of this temperate rainforest, explore the Story Centre chronicling the early history of the Bridge. Walk across one of the world's longest suspension footbridges to the overside of the canyon. Here, you can climb into the tree canopies to stroll a series of seven suspension bridges high among the 250 year old Douglas-firs. If you're feeling adventurous, then try Cliffwalk. This heart-stopping Cliffside journey takes you around the granite cliff face on suspended walkways above the Capilano River.

Want to spend longer exploring a particular area? We are happy to drop you off anywhere in the downtown or Richmond areas, even the airport! With some advance notice, we can bring your luggage along as well, once your tour is over.
