This Vancouver tour will start with picking you up from your hotel in our luxury car with your private guide and driver.
We will go through the central part of the Downtown core to see the diverse architecture, drive through colorful Vancouver Chinatown and then drive to the oldest part of Vancouver, Gastown – home of the world-famous Steam clock.
As we continue on our way, we will find ourselves at the Canada Cruise ship terminal, the gorgeous Coal Harbour area, and finally the oasis in the city: Stanley Park. Here we will spend quite some time and enjoy a stop at Totem Poles.
On our way to the next stop, West Vancouver, we cross the gorgeous Lions Gate Bridge that connects two shores of Vancouver city. In West Vancouver you will see the most expensive estates in Canada, then stop at the Cypress Mountain Viewpoint with breathtaking views of the city and the Pacific Ocean from 1500 ft. above sea level. After that, we will continue on to quaint Horseshoe Bay where one of the BC ferry terminals is located, as well as a large marina, home to an array of impressive yachts.
From there, a few minutes to Whitecliff Park will impress upon you the beauty of the west coast along with an invitation to take a break on one of many lovingly cared-for memorial benches, which has become a symbol of West Vancouver. Delicious lunch in one of our famous seafood restaurants is included in your tour time but at your own expense.
To get back to Vancouver we will cross the Lion’s Gates Bridge again and find ourselves in Stanley Park to admire the city from Prospect Point and to see the famous Lost Lagoon.
Soon we arrive at the ever-popular artistic Granville Island. Here you will enjoy the sights (and aromas) of many art galleries, shops, restaurants, and cafes. Continuing on, you will be treated to the great views of English Bay, pass two main stadiums: BC Place, where the ceremony of opening Olympic games took place, and Rogers Arena which our local hockey team Vancouver Canucks calls home, the sight of Science world and very shorty Olympic Village which was built especially for XXI Winter Olympic Games in Vancouver.
This will conclude your 8 hours excursion and we can either drive you back to your hotel or any point in town. You are also welcome to explore Granville Island on your own and we will provide you with detailed directions back to your hotel by small ferry boat.
