This is one of the best tours we have taken. Our guide,Tim, was wonderful. This is a much better way of seeing Vancouver than bop on hop off. Tim was extremely knowledgeable.

The guide makes the tour!
Jan 2020
The well-designed tour featured several stops, where we had time to get off the bus and look around a bit, typically near food/water/restrooms. The stop at the Granville Public Market was long enough to grab a bite for lunch. Our tour guide, Sarah H, was as knowledgeable as she was enthusiastic which added a positive, personal touch that added to our enjoyment of Vancouver.

City Sightseeing tour
Oct 2019
My wife and I took the City Highlights tour back in late October. We took multiple tours during our week+ vacation in Vancouver--but this one really stood out because of our guide. Alessio really deserves recognition for being an incredible guide and driver. He is friendly, knowledgable, and was patient and jovial with the tour for the entire trip. I can only imagine what he has to deal with on a day to day basis--but you would never know if from his bright attitude. REQUEST ALESSIO IF YOU CAN

So great!
Nov 2019 • Couples
We absolutely loved this tour! The company was so efficient and reached out in advance to let us know our pickup time, and 9:30 on the dot that morning they were in front of our hotel. Once we got onto the tour bus, Eric was fantastic and super knowledgeable. We saw so many great highlights of the city and learned a bunch of new things, and Eric was kind enough to drop us off totally out of his way so we could get to our lunch reservation. If you’re looking for a great way to see Vancouver, look no further!!

Very informative - but....
Nov 2019 • Couples
This is a great tour and well worth the price per ticket. Wonderful tour company. Very organized. Andrew was incredibly interesting and knew a lot of historical information - what distracted from that were his references to “juanitas in yoga pants”, or the story (while true) about the name Lululemon created by the then founder’s enjoyment in making fun of “Asians because they can’t make the L sound”, or the fact that he:
1. Owns a vineyard in Lodi with is wife
2. Is going to pay cash for his Tesla
2. His Maui Jim’s are $400
The unintended affect is that he came across in a very cringeworthy way. Can someone please nicely and gently coach him?

Great way to see it all!
Really comfortable coach with a great guide. Run every hour out of season so timing is everything. Start early as they finish early. Live commentary so more fun.
