About This Tour

Vancouver City + The Lookout Tour

You name it, you’ll see it on our Vancouver City + The Lookout Tour, a guided urban adventure that takes Vancouver sightseeing to new heights. Explore the city’s downtown landmarks including Canada Place, the Olympic Cauldron, and the bustling Robson Street shopping district. The Vancouver city tour then showcases Stanley Park, a sprawling 405 hectare of forest and nature right in downtown Vancouver. We continue through English Bay, vibrant Granville Island, and the historic districts of Chinatown and Gastown. Finally, we board a glass elevator to be carried skyward to the 360-degree observation deck atop the Vancouver Lookout, affording a panoramic view of the impressive cityscape of downtown and beyond.

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!

Lion's Gate Bridge

A photographers paradise, the historic Lion's Gate Bridge is one of Vancouver's best known landmarks. With stunning views over the Burrard Inlet and the mountains of North Vancouver, you are sure to be inspired by the long history of the bridge and its picture-perfect setting. Famously known for the lion statues that protect the south entrance, travelling the Lion's Gate during the day provides much to see, but you'll want to come back at night to witness the sparkling array of thousands of lights donated by the Guiness Family, lending the skyline a recognizable night time glow.
