While you will have a blast exploring Vancouver on your own, there are also several guided tours that you might want to consider. For example, a walking tour of Gastown and Chinatown takes about two hours and you will be sure to see the most historical sights on your guided tour. There will be visits to food markets, the famous steam clock, art galleries, temples, gardens, and more.
With so much to see and do in Vancouver, one trip just will not do it justice, but you and your friends will have plenty to keep you busy. The only problem will be in deciding what to do next. You might also want to travel over to Granville Island by water taxi where you can visit the island’s public market. Open seven days a week, the market boasts the wares of hundreds of artists. There is also fresh food, bakery items, fresh flowers, and more. The Island has breathtaking views of the waterfront and a plethora of shows, galleries, and restaurants.
If you and your friends are feeling energetic and adventurous, you might consider taking a guided bicycle tour through Vancouver. This trip lasts 5 hours and you’ll be guided through the beaches and you’ll ride along the seawall in Stanley Park. You’ll also get to see the 2010 Olympic Village and this tour also takes you to Granville Island and the public market.
Even if you do not take a guided tour through Vancouver, just reading about the tours gives you a good idea of what you may want to see while you are there. If any of your girlfriend city trips take you to the amazing city of Vancouver, you may find that you’re too busy to do much catching up but you’ll have the time of your life.
