Pre Cruise North Shore Tour
Pre Cruise North Shore Tour
Before boarding your cruise ship, see some of the beautiful city of Vancouver. See the stunning nature that surrounds the city 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 the Capilano Suspension Bridge, Grouse Mountain, and the amazing temperate rainforest of Vancouver's North Shore on your incredible Vancouver sightseeing tour.
Begin your tour with a slow drive over the Lion's Gate Bridge, which spans the entrance to Vancouver's port. The bridge offers unparalleled views of the harbor and English Bay beyond.
Once across to the North Shore, continue on to your next stop at the Capilano Suspension Bridge park. Trek along the Capilano Suspension Bridge, which is raised 230 feet above the Capilano River and crosses a span of 450 feet. Enjoy the park's Treetop Adventures and venture across a series of elevated suspension bridges while walking among magnificent Douglas fir trees that cover the forest floor. While on your North Shore tour in Capilano Suspension Bridge park, brave the Cliff Walk. Suspended walkways meander through rainforest vegetation and jut out from granite cliffs. Many of the high, narrow walkways feature glass floors, which are all that separate you from the magnificent canyons hundreds of feet below.
Next, you will ascend 3,700 feet above Vancouver as you ride up the Grouse Mountain skyride. From this impressive height, view the city, Pacific Ocean, and Gulf Islands below as they get smaller and smaller as you ride higher and higher up the mountain. Once at the top, take the opportunity to enjoy Grouse Mountain's many attractions. Depending on the season you travel, you will see lumberjack shows, grizzly bears at the Refuge for Endangered Wildlife, and even theatre presentations.
Vancouver North Shore highlights are yours to encounter on this exciting Canada tour. Enjoy the convenience of hotel pickup and the expertise of your guide as you explore the city and create travel memories you'll never forget.

An excellent way to spend the day prior to boarding the ship . Unfortunately, weather is always the wildcard both the time at Capilano Suspension Bridge and Grouse Mtn was minimized by clouds and rain. The guide endeavored to offset the weather with excellent commentary and insight to the area,

This was the perfect way to spend the morning before boarding our cruise. Picked up on time at our hotel and dropped off at the cruise ship terminal exactly on schedule. The tour was great and although it repeated some city sights we had seen on a previous tour, you always learn something new from a different tour guide. The highlights of this tour however were outside the city at Grouse Mountain and Capilano Bridge. Both were exhilarating and we'd go back to Grouse Mountain for a day trip just on it's own. Very friendly and informative bus driver/tour guide and a highly recommended tour.

Our guide was excellent. Got us into both venues without waiting in line. Sufficient time at both venues as well. When you total up the ticket cost for Capilano and Grouse mountain, this excursion is only a few dollars more and you get transportation from your hotel to all the venues and luggage service to the cruise ship. Our bags were picked up at the hotel and waiting for us in our stateroom. Be sure to keep your passports in your hand luggage. Once at the cruise terminal, it was a ghost town, so breezed through check-in, security, border control, etc. The only folks who might not like this excursion are people who want to be first on the ship.

Alysio was very friendly and knowledgeable tour guide. He picked us up on time, showed all the interesting stuff on the tour, kept us engaged on the drive and dropped us back at our cruise on time. Highly recommend this tour and the guide.
