Vancouver Favourites Tour

Vancouver Favourites Tour

This summer, join us on the ultimate city tour of Vancouver. We will visit the must-see locations, the lesser-known spots and the hidden gems that make Vancouver the vibrant city it is. The must-sees include a visit to Gastown, Vancouver’s oldest neighbourhood. Browse the streets and see the famous Gastown Steam Clock strike a note on the hour. Next you will travel through Chinatown, a melting pot of Asian cuisines and stores. We will then take you through to Queen Elizabeth Park, where you will have views of the North Shore mountains. Rising over 1,200m, they are a mighty sight overlooking the city. Moving on, we will whisk you through to Granville Island, home of Vancouver’s most famous food market. There are some hidden gems on the Island that we will most definitely point out to you. Moving onto Kitsilano Beach, known to the locals as Kits, you will be greeted with some fantastic vistas across English Bay looking onto downtown. Kits is super trendy with antique, furniture and boutique stores. There is also a wide range of dining options for you to recon before returning on your own time. Finally, we will end in Stanley Park, where there is one of the most impressive collections of totem poles in downtown Vancouver and beautiful views of the North Shore from Prospect Point.
