We loved the tour of Vancouver. Chris was a wonderful guide. Our bags ended up at the ship....as did we...with no problem what so ever!

What a great way to kick off an Alaska cruise! We had never been to Vancouver but thought we could see a bit of the city on our own so the North Shore Tour seemed a good way to get out of the city and start getting into nature. Good idea! We loved our day In this beautiful place. Loved the trails and the suspension bridge and the cliff walk and all the totem poles. And the two bears were amazing! So glad we did this pre-cruise excursion!

Very nice tour, on time pick up with clear pre-pickup instructions. The right amount of time at the Capilano Skybridge area, which was gorgeous and so interesting! Not quite as great at Grouse Mountain- a written handout about the shows and offerings there would have been helpful. We just wandered around and missed seeing everything except the hibernating bears. I do recall the shows/exhibits were mentioned but it is too difficult to recall after only one quick mention, plus not knowing where to find them. Bus driver very safe and knowledgeable about the area, pointing out sights as we passed them. I would do this tour again!
The weather was wretched--rained all day--but the guide brought the trip to life.

What a beautiful day for a train ride! We were able to see all the glaciers because there were no clouds in the sky, and the trip was a great step back in time. I couldn't believe the trail these gold prospectors walked with their "grub stake" to make a better life for themselves. What a tough life, and so few rewarded with the precious finding of gold. Good narrator on board -- very informative.
This was a fabulous tour. And the nice surprise was they had a van meet us at Grouse Mountain to take our luggage to our ship so it would be in our state room when we boarded. Very unexpected.

We did this tour prior to our cruise. We wanted to see Capiallano but only had a few hours. This was a perfect solution and we got to see so much more than we originally wanted to see. What a relaxing tour, being picked up at our hotel and knowing that our luggage was being taken to our ship. We were dropped off at Canada Place before our sailing and after the big crowds were already on the two ships in port. We walked right through customs. I would recommend this tour to anyone. Our luggage was waiting for us in our stateroom.

We loved the excursion and the driver! The treetop and suspension bridge stop was a lot of fun. The cliff walk was fantastic. We loved the tram up to Grosse mountain. It was really cloudy and rainy when we reached the top. We enjoyed some coffee and hot chocolate at the cafe there. Overall we give it a 10 out of 10 for the tour and the escort, she was great!
