Post Cruise Vancouver Highlights
After disembarking from your cruise, see some of the beautiful city of Vancouver. See all of Vancouver and more on this incredible tour of one of Canada's most visited and exciting cities. With a professional guide aboard an air conditioned bus, journey to see historic Gastown, tradition-rich Chinatown, high end Robson Street, and the remarkable English Bay and Vancouver Harbor. Stop to explore Stanley Park and Granville Island, as well as Vancouver Lookout on your incredible Vancouver sightseeing tour.
Discover Vancouver's oldest, largest, and most popular park while on this exciting tour. Stanley Park was opened in 1888 and boasts nearly 1,000 acres of west coast evergreen rainforest. Stroll about its cedar, hemlock, and fir trees before enjoying the exciting views from Prospect Point. Once at the top of Prospect Point, take in the stunning scene before you of Lions Gate Bridge, the North Shore's magnificent mountains, and the bustle of the harbor below. While in Stanley Park, see the most visited attraction in British Columbia, the traditional and towering Totem Poles of Totem Park.
As Vancouver's oldest neighborhood, Gastown has earned its place among the National Historic Sites of Canada for its history, grand Victorian buildings, and thriving urban lifestyle. Boasting traditional Chinese heritage and customs, Vancouver's Chinatown is one of North America's first established Asian neighborhoods. Your Vancouver city tour will also take you along Robson Street, Vancouver's most famous shopping street, which includes various establishments of fine dining and high end fashion in the heart of downtown.
Enjoy your stop at the bustling Granville Island while on your Vancouver tour. This peninsula and shopping district includes a stunning marina, wonderful art galleries, cute boutiques, and is perhaps best known for its public market. You will visit the Granville Island Public Market and various local artisan shops while on your tour of the island.
Finally, you will visit the remarkable Vancouver Lookout. Rise 553 feet in a glass elevator to reach the 360 degree aerial lookout observation deck. As if on top of the world, take in the stunning sight of Coal Harbor, the immense Stanley Park, the glistening Pacific Ocean, Vancouver's towering North Shore Mountains, Olympic Peninsula Mountains, and downtown Vancouver.

There were three of us on this tour. We found it to be a wonderful way to see many Vancouver highlights and be dropped off at the airport for our flight home. Highly recommend this tour!

I really enjoyed the Vancouver Highlights. I was able to see the city before I checked into my hotel and spent the next two days spending more time at all the places I found interesting on the highlight tour.

This was a great tour of Vancouver highlights. Our guide Mikey was wonderful! He was knowledgeable, humorous, and seemed to really enjoy showing the city to us.The spots we visited were great - the Vancouver Lookout tower, Granville Island, and Stanley Park. As we traveled to each destination, Mikey pointed out other interesting things about the city. My only complaint was that the tour was scheduled at 9:30 and the pick up was a bit chaotic with traffic in front of the hotel so we had a late start (and 2 ladies were constantly late in returning to the bus at designated meet up time.) and therefore did not get to spend as much time at the locations we visited. A plus of this tour is that we were able to have our luggage locked on the bus and they transported us to the airport at the end of the tour!
Another poster nailed it. It was a bit rushed. Didn't stay anywhere too long, but then again, we we just wasting time until our flight. It was great that they picked us up at the cruise pier and carried our luggage around until they dropped us at the airport. And our tour driver was great. Very knowledgeable and personable. I was too tired to appreciate much of it, so I may not be the best reviewer :-)

Thought the tour was nice, but alittle hurried. Had enough time looking at totem poles, not time enough to enjoy the busy the waterfront .The SkyView was beautiful, but didn’t have time to read the information plaques.
