Vancouver City Highlights: 4-Hour Tour
- Transportation included
- Skip the ticket line
- Duration: 4 hours
Our tour operator was extremely organized and informative with lots of attention to detail throughout the booking process. The tour itself was interesting and well run. The only thing I would have done differently is not opt for the airport drop off following the tour (a nice perk is that they will provide hotel and airport drop off). What I didn't realize was that in addition to the hotels near Canada Place (where cruise ships come in), they also provide hotel drop off at Richmond hotels (Richmond is where airport is). The result was a long trip to get to airport (airport is last stop). We should have opted to take the easy, inexpensive light rail train to the airport from downtown, immediately following the tour. Of course, this wasn't the fault of the tour operator as the stops will vary each tour, depending upon what hotels people have booked. I just would have done it differently had I the benefit of hindsight.
This was one of the best tours I have ever experienced. Our marvellous guide, Ed, has lived in Vancouver his entire life and was able to share so many stories of the history of this amazing city. Ed was energetic, amusing, well-informed and so thoughtful concerning the needs of his passengers. My husband and I have some mobility difficulties, but he helped us to keep up with the group. Ed seemed to know people in every location, at every stop, and we were ushered through lines quickly and promptly. The trip was so excellent that we decided to remain with the group for an extra add-on to the trip.
I was grateful for the convenience of being picked up and dropped off at my hotel. The bus was clean and comfortable. The tour was fantastic and it was the tour guide, Terry, who made it so. Her narrative was informative but delivered as a interesting story. I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone who wants to get acquainted with Vancouver.
More info as to how to navigate Granville market to make most of short visit. Guide was great and loads of info, could add look to the right or left as was describing landmarks as we drive by. That why can see them and not miss as didn’t know where to look.
Good whale watching and seal experience only criticism was the boat very full. The staff on the boat were very knowledgable regarding the sea life.Also trip allowed a good time in Victoria which was a bonus before flying back to Vancouver.
