Itinerary

  • STANLEY PARK TOTEM POLES - Learn the legends surrounding the ancient Indigenous Peoples’ Story Poles, across from the white sails of Canada Place, located near the entrance to Stanley Park.
  • STANLEY PARK PROSPECT POINT - Gaze upon the bustling Lions Gate Bridge set against a stunning backdrop of the magnificent North Shore mountains and the sparkling Pacific Ocean.
  • GRANVILLE ISLAND - Cafes, boutiques, and artisan galleries line the streets of this stop. Head into the centrally located Granville Island Public Market for delectable treats.  Due to the closure of the Granville Island Public Market on Mondays in January, this tour will visit an alternative stop on those days.
  • CHINATOWN - Developed at the turn of the 20th century by Chinese immigrants who came to work during the gold rush and railroad construction, the Chinatown of today is a bustling reminder of the past.
  • GASTOWN - What was the original downtown core is now a National Historic Site lined with cobblestone streets and the city’s oldest architecture. See the statue of Gassy Jack Deighton, one of the city’s most infamous entrepreneurs and keep an ear out for the tunes of the steam-powered clock.
  • CANADA PLACE - The iconic five white sails ensure that Canada Place is a prominent feature in Vancouver’s skyline. Home to the conference centre, Cruise Ship Terminal, FlyOver Canada and the Olympic Cauldron, there’s always something happening down at Canada Place.
