Great way to orientate yourself to the city. Wonderful views and they allow you to return at night for another viewing of the city at sunset and light up.

Some great views of Vancouver. Had a short guided tour that was informative. Easy to find and not far from the waterfront.

A visit to Gastown is like turning back the clock and
stepping into a bygone era. With the distinction of
being Vancouver's oldest neighborhood, the many
plaques that stud the cobbled streets of Gastown tell
the story of its colorful past, giving Vancouver's
history a more lively presence here than anywhere
else. Having been originally founded around a popular
worker's saloon, it's no wonder that today some of

I want to buy 2 tickets for my friends who are moving to Vancouver next week. If I order in advance, are the tickets open? Or do I have to select a date on booking?

Hello! Tickets do not expire for up to a year. You can purchase in advance and do not have to select a date to use them. Looking forward to having you visit.
My family and I will be visiting Vancouver Lookout in July. We would like to stop in at the restaurant at the top for a drink and snack in the late morning or early afternoon. Do we need reservations? Also, is going to the revolving restaurant enough to see the sites of Vancouver or is it best to go to the observation deck too.

Can you see northern lights in Vancouver And if yes in late November
9 January 2017|
Response from Mimosa71 | Property representative |
Good question. Typically not, it's not common to see them in the city. However, Vancouver has seen the Northern Lights in the past year. They are normally experienced in the northern part of British Columbia.
