Your private tour starts with a stop at the beautiful Dr. Sun Yat Sen Classical Chinese Garden in Vancouver's Chinatown. The Chinese have a totally different perspective on what a garden should be and it must be seen to be understood. Take a short walk around Chinatown to see novelties such as the "World's Narrowest Building" and Chinese spice and medicine shops.Leaving the downtown area, you travel to the highest point in the city, the spectacular Queen Elisabeth Park and its sunken gardens. Originally a rock quarry for the early development of downtown, it is now a spectacular garden and view point. Finally, you'll enjoy the breathtaking Van Dusen Botanical Garden with an amazing array of what nature has to offer. This mature 55 acre (22 hectare) garden features displays of plants in picturesque landscape settings. Specific garden areas are planted to illustrate botanical relationships and geographical origins. Prime examples are the Rhododendron Walk and Sino Himalayan Garden.Please note: A minimum of two people per booking are required for this private Vancouver tour.
