Your expert local guide will lead you along the seawall and through the Coal Harbour district, where you’ll enjoy views of the Vancouver skyline, Vancouver Harbour and the surrounding mountains. You'll also explore vast Stanley Park to see wildlife and experience native village culture.
Meet your guide in downtown Vancouver at your selected departure time to begin your 3-hour walking tour.

You’ll see the city convention center, with its grass roof, right next to the Olympic Caldron, which was used for the 2012 Winter Olympic Games. Pass million-dollar condominiums and world-class hotels and listen as your guide points out notable sites such as Grouse Mountain and the Capilano Suspension Bridge.
When you arrive at Stanley Park, a 1,000-acre (405-hectare) urban oasis, watch for native animals such as squirrels, ducks, geese and other birds that inhabit the park, as well as seals and otters in the surrounding waters.
Your guide will take you along cool forest paths to Lost Lagoon and rose gardens. At Klahowya Village, experience local aboriginal culture as you pass interesting totem pole displays.
Finally, depending on the season, you’ll stop to admire the artwork displays of the park’s various artists. End your tour outside the park’s renowned Vancouver Aquarium.
