What you'll do

If you have a short time in Vancouver and want to explore the city, this comprehensive tour is the way to go. Drive to Vancouver’s top sightseeing locations; get lessons on photography on the best spots for views. From hiking in old-growth forests, to Granville Island, Stanley Park, English Bay sunsets and the night lights of Gastown, you will come home with beautiful mementos of the city. We start at your downtown accommodation and travel to the North Shore via the Lions Gate Bridge. Reaching a hiking trail in North Vancouver, we start the day with a 2 hour hike through old growth forest, enjoying waterfalls and lookouts. We continue to Granville Island where we check out hidden gems as well as the public market, grabbing lunch. Then we head to Stanley Park in the Golden Hour, checking out the Totem Poles, Prospect Point and Hollow Tree. We continue to English Bay, stopping at the Inukshuk for sunset views. We finish the day at Gastown, checking out its night lights and the famous Steam Clock. You'll be dropped off at your accommodation after the tour. We finish with more recommendations for restaurants, cafes and breweries which this area is also famous for.

Where you'll be

Lynn Canyon Park is one the most popular trails for locals, much less crowded than the 'touristy' Capilano Suspension bridge park. Granville Island has some unique spots alongside the popular farmer's market. Stanley Park and English Bay is excellent to photograph during the 'golden hour' and sunset times. Gastown and Chinatown are stunning at night. All these stops include hidden gems only locals know, along with the best views to photograph.
