Full description
This tour is a good afternoon option, and is ideal for the horticultural enthusiast or any admirer of natural beauty. A truly relaxing way to enjoy Vancouver's dramatic history, and charm.

This private tour starts with a pick-up at your hotel; the first stop is the beautiful Dr. Sun Yat Sen Classical Chinese Garden in Vancouver's China town. The Chinese have a totally different perspective on what a garden should be and must be seen to be understood. You will also take a little walk around Chinatown to see such novelties as the "World's Narrowest Building" and Chinese spice and medicine shops.

Leaving the downtown area, travel to the highest point in the city, the spectacular Queen Elisabeth Park and it's sunken gardens and sweeping panoramic views of Vancouver, the mountains, and the sea. Originally a rock quarry for the early development of downtown, it is now a spectacular garden and view point.

And finally, enjoy the breathtaking Van Dusen Botanical Garden and amazing array of what nature has to offer. This mature 22-hectare (55-acre) garden features displays of plants in picturesque landscape settings. Specific garden areas are planted to illustrate botanical relationships, such as the Rhododendron Walk, or geographical origins, as in Sino Himalayan Garden. These areas are set amidst rolling lawns, tranquil lakes and dramatic rockwork with vistas of the mountains and Vancouver cityscape.

This is a great afternoon tour because if you wish you may take advantage of the wonderful restaurant at Van Dusen Botanical Garden for dinner. (Sorry not included in tour fees. ) After which you will return you to your hotel.
