Need To Know
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.
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).
In addition to exploring downtown Vancouver, continue over the Lions Gate Bridge, deep into the coastal temperate rainforest on Vancouver’s North Shore. 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.
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 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. Until January 26, 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.
