DOWNTOWN VANCOUVER – GYPSY GUIDE
We have designed a Vancouver sightseeing tour route that takes you to the best places in and around the downtown area – the perfect first timer’s guide and orientation. If you have a rental car you will be able to cover more ground quickly, plus you’ll be able to visit places that most tourists don’t normally get to see.
You should have enough time to visit the suggested places and complete the tour in one day, or you can use the tour as a sample and then decide which places to go back and spend more time visiting.
Vancouver is a beautiful city and you’ll love the diversity of different neighbourhoods, attractions and visually attractive sights that we get to experience on this route we have carefully designed. Driving instruction in the commentary will keep you on track as we explore our way around the city.
