Vancouver Delights Tour

City Highlights + Capilano Suspension Bridge

This DELIGHTFUL tour pairs our popular City Highlights tour with one of Vancouver’s oldest tourist attractions, the Capilano Suspension Bridge, creating the perfect blend of city and nature.

After travelling through downtown, cross the Lions Gate Bridge into North Vancouver and stop at the Capilano Salmon Hatchery to learn about one of BC’s most important species, the Pacific Salmon. Finish the tour by getting lost in the wilderness (we do not mean that literally) at the Capilano Suspension Bridge.

TOUR INFORMATION

Explore the urban elements of downtown Vancouver and immerse yourself in the wilds of Vancouver’s rugged North Shore with this 7-hour, fully narrated tour. Combine the highlights of downtown Vancouver with a stop at Capilano Suspension Bridge Park and the Capilano Salmon Hatchery on our Vancouver Delights Tour.

Journey through the various distinct cultural areas of Vancouver, including Chinatown and Gastown, the charming Vancouver Harbour, and scenic, ocean-side English Bay. Step off the bus in Stanley Park to visit the Totem Poles, as well as Prospect Point for an impressive look at the Lions Gate Bridge. Explore the renowned Public Market and artisan stores at Granville Island and take in the jaw-dropping 360-degree view of the city and beyond from Vancouver Lookout’s Observation Deck (admission included).

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

In addition to exploring downtown Vancouver, continue over the Lions Gate Bridge, deep into the coastal temperate rainforest on Vancouver’s North Shore. Learn about conservation efforts and the lifecycle of the local salmon at the Capilano Salmon Hatchery. Finish your day of touring with a trip to Capilano Suspension Bridge Park for a heart-pounding walk across the suspension bridge, spanning 137 metres (450 feet) across and 73 metres (230 feet) above the river. Discover the other features of the park, including Treetops Adventure and CliffWalk.

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 – Since their relocation to their current home, we have been able to learn and enjoy the different stories and legends told by each pole.

Stanley Park Prospect Point – More than just a viewpoint, this area played a significant part in shaping the Vancouver of today. Find out more about the SS Beaver, get delicious ice cream and watch as the ships come and go under the Lions Gate Bridge.

Granville Island – Wander through the many stores for an original keepsake, enjoy the performances by local buskers, choose from the endless options in the Public Market and enjoy your treat on the boardwalk.

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 – Developed by the Chinese immigrant population, Chinatown is now a thriving community filled with shops, restaurants and the first Chinese garden built outside of China.

Gastown – Vancouver’s original downtown core is where it all began. Although, this neighbourhood is home to a variety of boutiques, restaurants, pubs and more, the history of the area lives on with cobblestone streets, architecture, and the statue of Gassy Jack Deighton.

Vancouver Lookout Tower – See the city and beyond from high atop the Harbour Centre Tower. Being 168 metres (553 feet) off the ground gives visitors a 360-degree view of the city and its most prominent features (admission included).

Lions Gate Bridge – This iconic bridge was built in 1937 by the Guinness Family. Stretching across Burrard Inlet, this bridge connects downtown to North and West Vancouver and the adventures that lie beyond.

Capilano Salmon Hatchery – Learn about the life cycle of the Pacific Salmon and their importance to British Columbia at the interpretive centre. Keep an eye on the fish ladder since, depending on the time of year, you may see returning adults.

Capilano Suspension Bridge Park – Cross this legendary attraction at 70 m (230 ft.) high and 137 m (450 ft) long. Venture through the tree canopies with the Treetop Adventures, and walk along the side of granite cliff with the thrilling CliffWalk. During December, marvel at the Canyon Lights display of over 300,000 Christmas Lights (admission included).

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.

  • 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. What’s the Difference between Peak & Canyon and Mountain Discovery Tour?
    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. What if I Don’t Want to Cross the Capilano Suspension Bridge?
    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. Will I See the Bears at Grouse Mountain?
    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 vend
