Vancouver: 1.5-Hour Guided Sunset Tour

1. Vancouver: 1.5-Hour Guided Sunset Tour

Explore Vancouver as the sky changes color and the sun goes down, seeing the city from two different perspectives. This 1.5-hour guided tour will take you to the most beautiful parts of the city in a coach with panoramic view windows. Start at Prospect Point in Stanley Park and look out over the Burrard Inlet, Vancouver’s North Shore, and Lionsgate Bridge.  Then, it’s off to the popular English Bay where many people will still be catching some of the last rays of sun. The highlight will be stopping at Queen Elizabeth Park, the highest point in Vancouver, where you can get views of the park, the city, and North Shore.   Historic Gastown will be the last stop in your evening — this original settlement is now a National Historic Site. Cobble-stone streets, the original working steam clock, and local artisans will be there to greet you as you enter the area. End your tour here to continue exploring on your own, or continue a little further to end your tour in Canada Place.

What people are saying about Queen Elizabeth Park

Wonderful trip in Vancouver

We took the evening tour of Vancouver and they took us to Stanley Park, Queen Elizabeth Park, Gastown, city of Vancouver, etc. They pointed out history of the buildings, bridges, and parks. It was very interesting and at the parks, our guide showed us the important things to see in our 20 minute stop. The 90 minute tour lasted 2 hrs and 10 minutes, but was well worth it. Since we had planned to eat at 9, we ended up having dinner at 10:00, so you might want to eat a head of time and not have a late lunch like we did. I would highly recommend this trip when you are in Vancouver. Our lady guide was extremely knowledgeable and did an outstanding job.

An excellent introduction to Vancouver.

Our tour guide (lady driving a green bus!), made the evening enjoyable, informative and fun.
