Have a few hours to kill in Vancouver before your cruise? Then opt for a Vancouver City Highlights Tour and uncover the best of the beautiful capital of British Columbia before being transported directly to the cruise terminal to join your ship! Your luggage is transported with you so there is no need to worry about taxis or transfers.

Begin your day at Gastown, Vancouver's historic district where you'll stroll down the cobbled streets and explore the 19th century buildings. Next, head to Vancouver's Chinatown, one of North America largest Chinatown and soak in the lively cultural atmosphere. Then, you'll go to Robson Street, Vancouver's famous shopping district in the heart of downtown Vancouver. At the Canada Place, see the beautiful panoramic sails by the water and architectural landmark of Vancouver.

Take a stop at Brockton Point in Stanley Park to see the nine historic totem poles built by the First People in British Columbia. These stunning pieces of artworks reflect the rich culture of the indigenous people of the Pacific Northwest. You'll take a walk in the forest and ascend to Prospect Point, the highest point of Stanley Park, and get amazing scenic views of the North Shore Mountains, the Lions Gate Bridge, and Burrand Inlet. You'll also pass by English Bay, Vancouver's famous sunbathing region destination, and Vancouver Harbor.

You'll also take a stop at Granville Island and venture to Granville's Public Market where you'll find a variety of stalls selling beautiful homemade goods and gastronomic masterpieces. Explore the eclectic art scene by meeting and chatting with artists in their shops and viewing their unique creations made from glass to textiles.

Finally, you'll conclude your Vancouver City Highlights experience at the lookout viewing deck high atop the Vancouver Lookout to get a 360-degree view of Vancouver. The glass elevator will lift you up 430 feet skyward from the street level in just 40 seconds. The view from the top will leave you breathless.

I highly recommend this tour. The pick-up was on time, and they even had a separate van for our luggage to take to the ship. We did not have to worry for our luggage, and we arrived to our stateroom, they were already there in perfect conditions!! This alone is worth the money. Our tour was fun and visited various locations and had time for photos and to stroll around. The van was in perfect conditions and our tour guide was attentive. He left us right in front of the pier. It was such a great way to start our cruise. Just wish that other ports had this type of tour!!! Would definitely repeat.
