Vancouver is a natural paradise full of beaches, green valleys and awe-inspiring mountains ideal for outdoor lovers. But, in addition, this great metropolis in British Columbia offers tourists a vibrant cultural atmosphere, a multicultural historical legacy, and large avant-garde skyscrapers. For this reason, this Essential Free Tour of Vancouver has been designed by local guides who want to share the best landmarks in their city. Walking with your expert guide along the downtown area, you will find architectural gems such as the Vancouver Lookout or the Flatiron Building, churches, parks, and more. You will also understand the philosophy of "vancouverism" that distinguishes local urbanism and spend a fantastic day in the company of other international travelers.

Your tour will cover the historic center of Vancouver, from the waterfront and its tall skyscrapers, to the quaint Victorian buildings of Gastown. Near the port, you will learn about the importance of the city as a great connecting hub for the maritime trade routes that link Asia with America, and then Panama. Not far from this area, as your group rests by the beautiful Gastown Steam Clock, you will witness why this charming neighborhood is the most fashionable in the city, and enjoy its open and tolerant culture, its countless cafes, restaurants, lively theaters and boutiques full of souvenirs. Yaletown is another lively downtown neighborhood with interesting breweries worth exploring.

During your Free Essential Tour of Vancouver, your guide will also explain why this city consistently ranks so high on lists of the world's most livable cities, and what a day in the local life is like. An important part of the tour will allow you to discover the legacy and challenges of the Canadian First Nations, as well as the important role of the Asian immigrant community (settled mainly in Chinatown) in the development of the city after World War II. If you're a sports lover, don't forget to ask your guide about the city's stadiums and sports scene; they will be happy to answer all your questions! As you can see, this tour is the best way to spend a day in Vancouver, so book today and secure your place!
