Pre Cruise Vancouver Highlights

Before boarding your cruise ship, 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. Have a quick 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.

Drive through 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.

Excellent tour with a knowledgeable guide
December 04, 2019
Perfect way to transition from a one night hotel stay in Vancouver to a Carnival cruise. We were picked up at our hotel, taken on a wonderful tour of the city, and then taken directly to our ship at the port, where our luggage was delivered previously, and waiting for us in our cabin. Our tour guide was excellent, as well as a personal friend of Michael Buble. Five stars all the way!!!

The tour company arrived at our hotel at the promised time. Our luggage was taken to the ship while we toured Vancouver. The tour guide was knowledgeable and provided interesting facts about the areas we visited. We had a great time and would do the tour again.

Vancouver guided tour

We were very happy with our tour. Daniel picked us up early and looked after our baggage. He was really a perfect person for his job. Andrew was very very well informed about the area and did a marvellous job of keeping us all together. The highlight was the tour up the revolving tower. Your tour covered all the highlights of Vancouver.

We were very happy we did this tour since we only had a partial day in Vancouver. Offers all of the highlights with very educational info from our guide. Vancouver, BC is a beautiful and very clean city. Impressive history. He got us to the ship at 2:30, luggage delivered before our arrival and was in our stateroom as promised. We literally had no lines to wait and walked right on as promised! Awesome service!

Good basic tour of the city
September 01, 2019
This was a lovely pre-cruise excursion around Vancouver that allowed us to see some of the major inner-city sites. It was interesting & informative. My mother has mobility issues, and the crew were very accommodating. They picked us up at the hotel and dropped us off at port as promised. My only complaint is that we were the first ones picked up in the morning and spend nearly 2 hours picking up other passengers before the tour began.
