My husband and I took this tour after our cruise and it was the best, most professional tour of our entire 14 day trip! The guide was personable, knew when to make casual conversation and when to allow you to just enjoy your trip. He was entertaining without being corny, very informative and knew the right balance between keeping the tour on schedule and allowing appropriate time at each stop. The tour was a 'full pull' and we ended at the airport with plenty of time to spare for our evening flights. TIP: be aware that in Vancouver - you are not able to check any luggage more than 3 hours prior to your flight.....which means you may find yourself hanging out for awhile on a bench....pre security, so be prepared. This was a great tour and it made us want to come back to Vancouver for a long weekend visit.

What to do after your Alaska cruise at 8:30AM? Go on a post cruise tour of your host city Vancouver. We went on a bus tour which showed most of the highlights of Vancouver, including Granville Market, Vancouver Lookout, Stanley Park, and the Lyons Gate Bridge. By the time the tour was over, it was time to check in to our hotel room, with our luggage delivered to the hotel.

The tour was very enjoyable and informative. Allowed time to enjoy a good meal. What made it special, however, was the tour company and the staff. Due to a problem with unloading luggage from the ship, we missed our tour bus, though they had waited almost 30 minutes. When we called the office, they made arrangements for a shuttle to pick us up and connect us with the bus. The shuttle took the same route and the guide gave the same information so we really missed nothing, meeting the bus at one of the regular stops. Just wonderful customer service.

This was a wonderful way to see the city of Vancouver. Definitely recommend it! Plus we were dropped off at our hotel, for our overnight stay, plus this Tour Company continued on with other hotels and airport drop offs. We had a very knowledgeable Tour Guide.

We really enjoyed the excursion! Our guide was knowledgable and funny. She even rearranged her drop offs to ensure we arrived at the airport well before our flight. We didn’t even ask but we very impressed by her thoughtfulness. We will definitely book with Shore Excursions again!
