TOUR INFORMATION

Start the day with a pick up from the Canada Place Cruise Ship Terminal. While you enjoy the tour, your luggage is secured on board. This 7 hour, fully narrated tour combines all the must-sees of downtown Vancouver and North Vancouver in one tour. Stops in Stanley Park, Granville Island and at the Vancouver Lookout fit perfectly with the two stops on the other side of Lions Gate Bridge at the Capilano Suspension Bridge Park and the Capilano Salmon Hatchery.

Chinatown, Gastown, the charming Vancouver Harbour, and scenic, ocean-side English Bay are just a few of Vancouver’s neighbourhoods that we tour through. Explore Stanley Park and the two stops we make here, including one at the Totem Poles and the second at Prospect Point. See the city from above from the Observation Deck at the Vancouver Lookout (admission included) and wander through the Public Market and unique stores at Granville Island.

Due to the closure of the Granville Island Public Market on December 26 and every Monday in January, we will visit an alternative stop.

We then head over the Lions Gate Bridge to get a taste of nature as we explore two of the best attractions of Vancouver’s North Shore. At the Capilano Salmon Hatchery, learn about conservation efforts and, depending on the time of year, you may eve see adult Pacific salmon making their way home! Wind your way through Capilano Suspension Bridge Park and discover the various features available, including Treetops Adventure, CliffWalk and the suspension bridge, spanning 137 metres (450 feet) across and 73 metres (230 feet) above the river.

Complimentary Hotel or Cruise Terminal Pick Up – Pick up from the Cruise Terminal, your downtown Vancouver or Richmond hotel and meet your tour guide. Ask about our luggage handling service.

Stanley Park Totem Poles – These nine Totem Poles each speak to a distinct legend which are sacred to the various First Nations communities of British Columbia.

Stanley Park Prospect Point – After a short ride through the park and past the ancient cedar trees, lies Prospect Point, the highest section in the park. Capture images of the Lions Gate Bridge and the towering mountains of North Vancouver, as cruise ships enter and leave the harbour.

Granville Island – Granville Island is the perfect place to find that one of a kind keepsake. Wander through the local artisan galleries and check out the many restaurants and bakeries, including the Public Market, where you’ll find some of the island’s most notable vendors.

Due to the closure of the Granville Island Public Market on December 26 and every Monday in January, we will visit an alternative stop.

Chinatown – The Millennium Gate and the red lampposts lining the streets are a clear indicator that you have entered this history-filled neighbourhood, home to endless options for food and the first Chinese garden outside of China.

Gastown – The beauty of each neighbourhood is that they have their own story to tell. Gastown is no different since it was Vancouver’s original downtown core. From your neighbourhood pub to fine dining, you can find it here, along the cobblestone streets and some of downtown’s oldest architecture.

Vancouver Lookout Tower – High above the city at 168 metres (553 feet), sits the Vancouver Lookout Observation Deck. Get an aerial view of the city while learning more about what makes it so unique (admission included).

Lions Gate Bridge – Built in 1937 with funding provided by the Guinness Family, this bridge has become an iconic Vancouver symbol. The Lions Gate Bridge appears in a few movies filmed in Vancouver, such as Deadpool 1, 2 and Final Destination 6.

Capilano Salmon Hatchery – The Pacific salmon has a significant part in British Columbia’s ecosystem. Visit this hatchery to see conservation efforts and their lifecycle through the Interpretive Centre. Depending on the time of year, view adult salmon returning to the hatchery at the fish ladder!

Capilano Suspension Bridge Park – Most notably known as the oldest attraction in Vancouver, this attraction is home to the legendary suspension bridge, Treetops Adventure, CliffWalk and Kia’Palano. Visit the Story Center to learn all about the history of the bridge!

Hotel, Airport or Train Station Drop Off – Drop off available at your downtown Vancouver or Richmond hotel, Vancouver International Airport (YVR), VIA Rail or Rocky Mountaineer.

Notes: We provide luggage handling making this an ideal tour for pre or post-cruise guests. Pre-cruise passengers are picked up at their hotel along with their luggage. While they sightsee, we transfer luggage from the hotel to the cruise terminal. The cruise terminal staff then delivers it directly to staterooms. Post-cruise passengers are picked up at Canada Place Cruise Ship Terminal. Luggage is secure on the vehicle during the tour.

  • 1. What Should I Wear?
    Dress in layers for the day, including a warm shirt or outer layer. We recommend bringing comfortable walking shoes. We store all excess items on the vehicle while you’re exploring.
  • 2. Is This Tour Accessible?
    Guests can expect a minimal to moderate level of walking throughout this tour. Stanley Park features some unpaved pathways and some inclines. The Capilano Suspension Bridge can be slippery and involves steep stairs and does not allow strollers, crutches or wheelchairs on the bridge.
  • 3. Is This Pre-Cruise Tour?
    Yes! If you’re a cruise ship passenger, this tour makes for an excellent post-cruise option. We offer luggage handling and drop off at the Vancouver International Airport (YVR) at the end of your tour for an additional fee.
  • 4. I Don’t Like Heights; Can I Handle The Vancouver Lookout?
    If you don’t like heights, we suggest closing your eyes during the elevator ride as you rise from the ground. The observation deck is completely enclosed with areas to step away from the windows. You are welcome to wait in the lobby; however, tickets are not refundable.
  • 5. Do We Stop in Gastown, Chinatown, or Yaletown?
    The tour ventures through each of these neighbourhoods with live commentary provided; however, the bus does not stop. Your driver-guide can drop you off in one of these neighbourhoods if you request it at the end of the tour.
  • 6. Do I Have To Get Off the Bus at Granville Island?
    Yes. Our buses are not able to park on Granville Island due to city by-laws. There are various places to sit, eat, and explore without walking distances.
  • 7. Will There Be Fish at the Salmon Hatchery?
    Depending on the time of year you are visiting and the type of Pacific Salmon, you may see salmon at the hatchery. The Interpretive Centre, however, is open all year and is a great chance to get photos of the river.
  • 8. What if I Don’t Want to Cross the Capilano Suspension Bridge?
    There is still much to explore for those who do not want to cross the bridge. You can experience CliffWalk, the Story Centre, Gift shop, Indigenous art and enjoy something to eat from the food and beverage vendors.
