Stanley Park & Vancouver Naturally
Vancouver Naturally (4 hours)
Departure Time – Private Tour / Morning
An introduction to one of North America’s most scenic cities can capture but a few highlights. Vancouver is vistas; from English Bay you can see Vancouver Island; from Brockton Point, the port and city skyline; from Prospect Point, the North Shore mountains; and the Pacific Ocean is in view from almost anywhere you look! Marvel at Stanley Park, a 1000-acre peninsula of rainforest with century old trees in the heart of a city embraced by a 5.5 mile seawall. Queen Elizabeth Park is a quarry transformed into sunken gardens. Stroll through the flowering gardens and marvel at the panoramic views. This adventure takes you to where Vancouver began – in its most historic area – Gastown. Here, along cobbled alleys and walkways, renovated warehouses are home to shops and restaurants and the world’s first steam clock ticks on Water Street. Originally a wilderness area, Gastown grew into Canada’s third largest city and one of its most cosmopolitan. The district today retains its historic charm, independent spirit, and distinctiveness. Your tour concludes at your hotel or Granville Island, the perfect spot for lunch.
