Great tour and the guide was very knowledgeable. This is a great tour to give you an overview of Vancouver. The service was also wonderful, as they took our luggage to the ship to be checked in and so we just went straight to the check in. I loved the Lookout where you can see the entire Vancouver. The Grenville Island and Stanley Park were great also.
