    What to Expect
    Vancouver is commonly called the ‘Gem on the Coast’ — see for yourself why on this 5-hour guided tour. After a mid-morning pickup from your downtown hotel, travel with your guide to Stanley Park, the largest urban park in North America.


    From 1000-year-old trees to First Nation totem poles, Stanley Park is full of wonders and great history. Learn about the totem’s carvings and cultural import, as well as the surrounding geology.


    Your comprehensive tour of Vancouver includes Yaletown, hopping with trendy shops housed in old and modern buildings. In Chinatown, visit the Dr. Sun Yat Sen Chinese Gardens and stop at a Chinese tea shop.


    Hear all about Gassy Jack in Gastown, and gain insight into how Vancouver became the major trading port it is today.

    See grand homes in Shaughnessy and wrap up your day at the Granville Island Public Market. Your tour ends with drop-off back at your hotel.

    Excellent introduction to this amazing City. Michael knows his city well and has a joy in sharing it. We never could have done such a comprehensive day on our own. You won’t be disappointed. We highly recommend Lawrence Tours.

    I believe that may be possible for a fee. Ask the tour operator.
