Full Day Best of Vancouver City & Gardens Tour

Enjoy the city and its gardens together. For your convenience and savings we have combined some of our most popular half day tours to make a full day itinerary. Less expensive than booking these tours separately. 

 

Come with us on a grand circle around town, covering the most interesting parts of the city. From the Totems of  Stanley Park to the views from Queen Elizabeth Park. From exotic Chinatown to artful Granville Island, there is something for everyone.

 

Then after lunch, (we are happy to make recommendations but lunch is not included in tour fees)  our first stop is the beautiful Dr. Sun Yat Sen Classical Chinese Garden in Vancouver's China town. The Chinese have a totally different perspective on what a garden should be and must be seen to be understood. We also do a little walk around Chinatown to see such novelties as the "World's Narrowest Building" and Chinese spice and medicine shops.

 

Leaving the downtown area we then travel to the highest point in the city, the spectacular Queen Elisabeth Park and it's sunken gardens and sweeping panoramic views of Vancouver, the mountains, and the sea. Originally a rock quarry for the early development of downtown, it is now a spectacular garden and view point.

 

One of our talented local guides will show you the town in style. Leave the bus crowd behind and enjoy a personalized commentary and travel at your own pace.

 

And finally we will enjoy the breath taking Van Dusen Botanical Garden and amazing array of what nature has to offer. This mature 22-hectare (55-acre) garden features displays of plants in picturesque landscape settings. Specific garden areas are planted to illustrate botanical relationships, such as the Rhododendron Walk, or geographical origins, as in Sino Himalayan Garden. These areas are set amidst rolling lawns, tranquil lakes and dramatic rockwork with vistas of the mountains and Vancouver cityscape.
