Vancouver City Highlights

Enjoy an introduction to downtown Vancouver and visit the main highlights the city has to offer.  Starting with winding through the historic and modern architecture of downtown core through Canada Place and by the 2010 Olympic Cauldron.  Then off to Stanley Park, a 400 hectare (1000-acres) natural West Coast rain forest.   After a stop at the popular Rose Garden, continue onto the stunning Queen Elizabeth Park.  At 152 metres (492 feet) above sea level, it is the highest point in Vancouver and makes for spectacular views of the surrounding city and mountains.

EXPLORATION STOPS

Next stop: Adventure! Step off the bus, stretch your legs, and explore at your own pace. We've created our itinerary to give you the perfect amount of time at each unforgettable stop! Not sure where to start? Our guides are always happy to show you their favourite hidden gems!

Stanley Park

Celebrated as Vancouver’s first official green space, Stanley Park compliments the business of the city with an expansive array of forest, field and path known as Stanley Park. Driving through the park you will experience life on the Vancouver Seawall where runners, walkers and cyclists all stretch their legs along this barrier protecting the shores from erosion. Stanley Park is a true wonderland of forest attractions including the quaint Teahouse Restaurant, views of the endless Pacific Ocean over sandy shores, even an outdoor summer theatre. You will want to return to visit the iconic Vancouver Aquarium and decipher the stories wandering through the First Nations Totem Poles.

Queen Elizabeth Park

Explore Queen Elizabeth Park, Vancouver’s spectacular view and floral displays! At 152 metres above sea level, it’s the highest point in Vancouver and makes for spectacular views of the park, city, and mountains on the North Shore.

Gastown

Beginning as a single pub back in 1867, Vancouver's Gastown has been entertaining residents and visitors alike for over a century. During your tour through the district the balance between the area's history and contemporary influence is obvious. Cobblestone streets lined with restaurants offering the best of modern cuisine, art galleries and hip boutiques providing a backdrop to vintage lampposts and the iconic Gastown Steamclock. Gastown is also renowned for it's First Nations Galleries, exhibiting the one-of-a-kind art of western First Nations artists. A tour through Gastown is an experience that will have you coming back again and again.

TOUR HIGHLIGHTS

Each of our tours shine a spotlight on the region's most iconic landmarks, neighbourhoods, and culture — all with live narration from our expert guides. Don't forget your camera! Our oversized, tinted windows are designed for sightseeing so you won’t miss a thing!

Canada Place

If sustainable architecture is of interest to you, your jaw will drop when you see the buildings of the Vancouver Convention Centre. Even though the original East Building at Canada Place is an impressive sight on it's own, the West Building, constructed in 2002, is of a design that will inspire the environmentalist in everyone. You may notice the "living roof" covered in vegetation, but what you won't see is that the building's waste water is treated and recycled for irrigation of the roof. You also won't be able to see the building's LEED Platinum certification in sustainable design, or the building's PowerSmart designation, or it's GO GREEN certification for environmental best practices, but they are indeed all there!

Chinatown Vancouver

If one word could describe the people of Vancouver, that word would be diverse. Accepting so many amazing cultures brings opportunties and rich experience, and Vancouver's Chinatown is as rich as it gets! Being Canada's largest Chinatown district, your tour through the area will expose you to the lively atmosphere, the Chinese markets and coffeeshops, and the distinctly eastern architectural designs. Chinatown Vancouver is the home of the Dr. Sun Yat-Sen Chinese Garden, an authentic 15th century-inspired gem of tranquility among the bustle of the streets. Chinatown in Vancouver is indeed an enlightening cultural experience.

English Bay

Among the highlights of downtown Vancouver, English Bay will not disappoint. Your tour will include a view of A-maze-ing Laughter, a sculpture which is composed of 14 statues, each measuring 3 metres in height and weighing over 250 kilograms (551 lbs.). You will continue along Beach Avenue, passing the sandy beaches of English Bay itself, taking in the view toward the Juan de Fuca Strait, and the iconic Vancouver Seawall that protects the length of shore around Stanley Park. During the Christmas Season be sure to catch the remarkable Christmas Tree Display, a highlight during holiday season.
