Well organized and informative tour. Nice city overview post-cruise

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.

Vancouver City Highlights: 4-Hour Tour Reviewed by

Guide was terrific. Should cut out the hatchery. Nothing to see there

While my hotel was in Vancouver, and I chose this tour because it would pick me up. Then I get email that I have to find my way to a hotel 5 miles away. So it started off on the wrong foot. The driver/guide Nareem was very upbeat and knowledgeable so we got over it. The tour was very good and the narrative gave a lot of history. The stop at the hatchery was a waste of time that I think could have been better used on Granville Island where there was a great public market, restaurants, artisan shops with a nice variety of items. The stay there was way too short to see even 1/2 the attractions. I highly recommend this tour and guide.

Great - just need a little more time at each location.

At Capilano Bridge our bus driver guide left us due to being 4 minutes late back to the bus. Unfortunately we got caught behind a large group of students crossing the bridge and it took us a lot longer to get back than anticipated. Fortunately Kevin let us join his tour and went out of his way to be sure we were taken care of. He even ran back to the gate to get our lift tickets for the tram at Grouse Mountain. I would highly recommend requesting him as your guide/driver for your tour.

A great tour. It was wonderful to be able to see so much!

The tour was great. The pick up at the hotel was on time and the tour itself was excellent. It would have been nice to have had more time at the market, but the time at the Totum Poles and at the Capilano bridge and rain forest was perfect. It was a great option for a very wet day. Our guide Dave was very knowledgeable and courteous.

A must do tour while staying in Vancouver!!

We loved this 5 hour tour.........our guide Ferdinand, was fun and knowledgeable and a great driver! We especially liked the time we spent on Granville Island and the time in Capilano Park. Could have spent much more time there and will do just that if we ever Return to Vancouver!
