THE GRAND VANCOUVER TOUR
The Grand Vancouver Bike Tour
TOUR DESCRIPTION

Want to take in all of Vancouver's highlights in one tour? We've got you covered. From the must-see sites of downtown Vancouver to the natural beauty that lies just outside the city, this tour has something for everyone, and it's a one-stop-shop for visiting Vancouver.

We will kick off our tour with the world-famous Stanley Park, enjoying trails through old-growth forest and marveling at the spectacular sights of the seawall. After checking out some of the hottest beaches in English Bay, we'll hop on a ferry over False Creek to Granville Island, known for its array of food, culture, and shopping. You can enjoy a break here while strolling through the Public Market. Grab a bite or a souvenir or just kick back and and take it all in.

Continuing on, we'll follow the seawall along the south side of False Creek where we will have the opportunity to see Vancouver's modern architecture framed by the North Shore Mountains; a truly breathtaking view. We will also see the Olympic Village complex and Science World, stopping here to chat about Expo ’86 and the 2010 Winter Olympics.

A visit to Vancouver wouldn't be complete without stopping in the city's vibrant Chinatown district. We'll pass through here and take time to stop at the Dr. Sun Yat-Sen Chinese Garden. Just around the corner we'll find historic Gastown, the city's first official downtown. We'll also stop here to talk about Gassy Jack’s famous pub and imagine the now modern city as a humble logging outpost.

This tour is great for casual riders as we'll maintain a leisurely pace over the course of the day. There are frequent stops, photo opportunities, and no significant inclines which makes this an enjoyable ride and our most popular tour!
