We were collected (with our luggage) from the hotel promptly by Landsea tours (we think they are GREAT), and taken on a tour of Vancouver, with stops at the Skytower (I never expected to have the nerve to do that, but it was great), Stanley Park Totem Poles, Prospect Point lookout and finally for a 3/4 hour stop at Granville island Market. We were dropped at the cruise ship at 2.45pm (and then our 'shambles' began!)

Excellent Tour, picked up on time, visited all places mentioned and had time to look around at stops. We became a little anxious that we wouldn't get to the Port on time but the driver knew all was well and we were delivered at the Port and had easy embarkation. Would recomment your trips.

This was a great tour. We were picked up right on time, our luggage was sent on to the ship and we were off on our adventure. The Lookout was a wonderful view of the city, Stanley Park was beautiful, Lions Gate bridge amazing, Granville Island was a lot of fun and the list goes on and on. Our tour guide was a very pleasant girl who was very knowledgeable about the city. It was a great introduction to Vancouver. After the tour we were brought right to the ship. I have nothing negative to say of this tour. I have a suggestion, but this is based on pure preference. I would start the tour earlier to get to the ship earlier. Vancouver is set up that everyone is in the same queue until after security, then you separate according to what ship you are on. Although there is a mass of people the line does move at a steady pace. My preference is to get to the ship earlier, perhaps this is just my eagerness to actually start the cruise! Would I recommend this tour? Yes. Would I do it again? ...

This tour was perfect! The tour guide called us the night before to confirm and picked us up right on time. Our luggage was delivered to the the ship as promised on a separate truck giving us the morning on the day we were to board our ship open for your tour. Our guide Dawn was wonderful and very knowledgeable although we had spent 2 days exploring Vancouvier they took us to several places we hadn't been and gave a a very complete tour of the city including the observation tower.
I would highly recommend this tour for anyone staying in Vancouver before leaving on a cruise. Not only was our day spent sightseeing in a comfortable bus but we were delivered to our ship right on schedule along with not having to worry about our luggage. Normally I would have taken a cab to the ship and delt with my own luggage and waisted the day hanging around just waiting to board.

This was one of the best tours we've ever had. What a beautiful city Vancouver is - and this tour gave us an overview that we could not have managed on our own. We also had an amazing guide, Stephan, and that added to our enjoyment. We are so happy with every Viator tour we have booked - in many different places - and will continue to use this service.

Great way to spend the morning if that's all the time you have in Vancouver. Got to see a lot of sights. Guide was extremely informative. Got us to the port at the right time and took care of getting luggage there. Would definitely do this one again! Thanks!
