Visited Vancouver after a cruise. With limited time Terry, our tour guide and driver made the tour interesting and fun. My husband has mobility issues and Terry accomodated him with ease making the tour that much more pleasurable. Thank you.

This tour took us to Stanley Park, Granville island and a driving tour of Vancouver. Hansen as our tour guide and he did a great job. The only hiccup was the bus had a little trouble starting spin our departure from Granville island but eventually did get moving.

Our tour guide (Mikey) did a great job on the tour. He was very informative and very personable. I would definitely recommend this tour, and was glad we booked it.

Our guide was fabulous! I believe his name was Alissio. He was extremely knowledgeable and made the day a wonderful adventure. He was very considerate of everyone’s needs.

We did our homework on checking out the reviews of folks who took different tour companies while in Vancouver. This company had really good reviews as opposed to the hop on, hop off bus company. We saw some of their buses when we were on our tour and they looked dirty, unkept, most of the buses had no windows! They were all removed! Our Tour included a narrator who gave us a ton of information and history about Vancouver. He was fantastic. We were very happy overall!!!

I was picked up after my cruise from Alaska. I appreciated that they called me to make sure that I was still coming and they waited and extra 15 min to arrive. The cruise line assumed since I did not book the excursion thru them that I was just an airport transfer and put me at the end of the line to disembark.

Robin was a very knowledgeable and informative guide. He made the trip work for us as one of our group needed extra time.

Great tour but even better company. We were delayed getting off our cruise when I called them they said if we missed the pickup time they would send someone to pick us up and catch up to tour. Luckily they were still loading so we made the bus

Vancouver is a busy city and there isn't much in the way of "free" parking, plus this was my first visit so I wanted to see all the sites without the hassle of navigating and parking. This tour was the perfect match for me. You get to see all the sites Vancouver is known for and learn more about them than you would have if you'd just gone there by yourself. Our guide was really knowledgeable about the area, answered any questions we had, and was friendly to talk with. The half day tour was perfect for me because you get to see the sites without getting worn out or overburdened with a long tour and a lot of information. I thought it was perfect and I would certainly recommend.

Our guide was thoroughly knowledgeable about the area and venues. Tim was helpful when we asked questions and took the time to seek out the perplexed visitor. He was on time and assisted those who needed it - I enjoyed the vantage points to view the city and he was helpful in pointing out the major areas and the history behind what we were seeing and the reason why the city planners chose to build and upgrade as the city grew.

This is really a great tour - if you only have a few hours and want a history of Vancouver I highly recommend this tour. James was very informative - and we stopped at all the major spots in Vancouver - 4 hours pre flight - a nice way to spend 1/2 a day

We really enjoyed this tour! We were picked up on time, our tour guide Ken had a great personality, knowledgeable and expressed a caring for the city of Vancouver. We saw many points of interest that included Granville Island. Fun day!!

This was a great start to our first visit to Vancouver! We were picked up at a convenient location and started learning about Vancouver’s current story and it’s history. Highlights were Stanley Park, the totem poles, the various “Burroughs”, Granville Island, and our guide, Alessio. He was knowledgeable, accommodating, and kept us on a very comfortable schedule. We would recommend this to any newcomer to Vancouver. It certainly helped us appreciate what Vancouver has to offer and made us comfortable to explore on our own.

Our guide Tim, a young man with both experience and knowledge, was excellent. He picked us up from our hotel and had taken the trouble to read that my wife was mobility challenged and placed a wheelchair on the bus in readiness which came in really useful for wandering around the Granville Island public market and the Stanley forest stops. Four hours (in realty six with collection and drop off) went by really quickly and we gained a thorough albeit superficial knowledge of the city. Highly recommended.

This was a terrific and interesting way to become oriented to Vancouver. Our guide Nadims was friendly and informative as well as an excellent driver. Lunch at the Granville public market was a highlight of the trip along with the view from the city lookout.

First time to Vancouver. We drove in from Birch bay Wash. What a mess with traffic, we were so glad for our tour and guide. Great job, navigating thru it all. Loved the tour. Next day we went back to the many sites.
