What To Expect

Your half-day sightseeing tour begins with pickup at select Vancouver hotels or the cruise ship terminal. Grab a seat in the comfortable coach for a guided trip through this vibrant seaport city, starting in Gastown. Hear about the historic district from your local guide as you cruise down cobbled streets, then continue to Chinatown—boasting the largest Chinese population outside of China.

Leave the urban terrain for Stanley Park, a remarkable 1,000-acre (405-hectare) wonderland of 500,000 cedar, fir, and hemlock trees. Stop at Prospect Point—the park’s highest peak—for splendid vistas of the North Shore Mountains, Lions Gate Bridge, and Burrard Inlet, and marvel at First Nation totem poles at Brockton Point.

If shopping is on your to-do list, enjoy a stroll down Robson Street, where bustling eateries mingle with upscale retailers and independent boutiques, as well as touring Granville Island's colorful Public Market, selling art, coffee, and a range of delectable foods.

Conclude your day with a trip to the Vancouver Lookout atop Harbour Center. Take the high-speed elevator straight to the observation deck—more than 550 feet (169 meters) up—and admire the grandeur of the city, the mountains and the majestic Pacific Ocean.

Your tour ends with drop-off at your original departure point.

Gastown (Pass By)

Vancouver's original downtown core is now a National Historic Site.

Traveler Tips

This is really a great tour - if you only have a few hours and want a history of Vancouver I highly recommend this tour.
I would also recommend the 8 hour tour if you have the time.
I highly recommend VIATOR for your next tour - it enhanced our visit to Vancouver, Canada and we are extremely pleased!

The driver was great but I think the price didn’t align with the experience. I was also offered a discount and then was told it could not be completed because a third party did the booking.
I Love YVR !!

A clear, cold day. The air was crisp and crystal clear. Lots of sun and no clouds. A great tour by a local who has lived here for 50 years. A great historical perspective.

Our guide Rodrigo was excellent. It’s refreshing to see a person who does their job so well. This tour was a great way to spend a somewhat rainy day in Vancouver. We saw several sites and learned a lot about the city. The suspension bridge was the highlight.
