Private Vancouver city tour

Chuck was very knowledgable. I feel like I got a comprehensive view of the city. He Was willing to stop at select locations and get out for pictures. Was enjoyable and absolutely worth it.

Driver showed up on time and directed us to car. Car was a very outdated old style limousine, with little to no working air conditioning on a very hot day. To make matters worse, the air conditioning was also very loud, so the two people in the back of the limousine heard none of the guide's remarks. While guide was VERY knowledgeable, he spoke very fast and I had a hard time following along. One in our party walks with a cane, and the point of doing a private tour was to be a bit more accommodating to her needs. Unfortunately, I felt that the guide and driver missed that to some extent . . . for example, parking could have been closer (there were spots available) and where closer parking wasn't available, we could have been dropped off closer to the attraction. Seemed like it was the drivers first day - she was very nice, but driving was tentative which resulted in a rougher ride than we would have expected. Content wise, we saw a lot, but over the following days when we participated in larger tours, we found the transportation much better and more accommodating to our party's needs.

We were supposed to be a group of six for a private tour of Vancouver but because one of the ladies of our group got very ill migraine headaches from an earlier private Wild BC Tour see my post we were only four adults. Actually the vehicle was an old cadillac limo which although it was fine for the four of us, I doubt that it would have been comfortable for six adults. Our tour guide was excellent and very informative. We enjoyed this tour very much. Our only suggestion would be to be able to spend more time on Granville Island.

Our guide Chuck picked us at the cruise terminal. I was worried he would never find us but that worry was not necessary. He told us to call him when we were ready. We did that and there he was. He gave us a four hour tour of the town and let us decide when we were ready to move on. We enjoyed Stanley Park, had a quick lunch down in the arts section, toured China town, Elizabeth Park and gastown. He then took us to our hotel and helped us unload all our luggage. Nothing but good things to say about Viator.

This was an incredible tour of Vancouver including Stanley Park, Queen Elizabeth Park, Granville Island, and Gas Town where we were given time to shop, look around, and take photos, We had delays getting into port, but Chuck worked around this and gave us a great tour of the city. My wife had some issues walking and was constantly checking on her to be sure she was doing well. This tour should be in the Carnival list of available tours. Thanks Chuck for an incredible tour of Vancouver!!! Ken, Nancy, Andrew, and Christopher

Taking a private car is the way to go because it really saves time. my only suggestion is don't go the the same places as the buses visit in the same order vere off to other interesting places where buses cannot go! its a car ok?? Also since we are paying private car prices how about a bottle of water . and a map of the city would be nice. when we get out to explore on our own. otherwise it was great!!

This tour fit our family perfectly - the driver was friendly and knowledgeable. We were only staying in Vancouver for the final night of our 17 day vacation and were looking for something that would give us a taste of the city as we knew we would be tired. I was surprised to see an older limo pull up to the hotel think 1980s extended Cadillac - but the ride was smooth, the car very clean, and my 19 year old sat in the 3rd bench area taking cat naps throughout the afternoon! The driver, Keenan, made sure to ask how active we wanted the tour to be, and tailored the experience to our preferences. We visited both Queen Elizabeth Gardens and Stanley Park - both lovely green spaces in the city. He also shared China Town, drove by the beaches, and - at my request - passed by the Olympic Cauldron though because of a marathon, he could not park nearby. We ended our tour at Granville Island for a snack and a bit of shopping in the impressive marketplace.

Sound system poor. Air conditioner poor - very hot in Vancouver. Would recommend take Land and Sea tour instead. Worst tour we had in 15 day Alaska tour/cruise.

Great tour of Vancouver. Six of us got everything we expected and more. Our guide was very informative with a great sense of humor. With the small group we stayed ahead of all the big bus tours.
