The flight over Vancouver was terrific !! Even though there is a free shuttle to the Capilano Suspension Bridge, we could just walk past the queue at the entrance to the park with our ticket. So the combination ticket is definitely worth it. But be careful with the flight: Check-in for the flight is 30 minutes before take-off! Unfortunately, that was not stated in the ticket and so we were almost too late.

Gabriel was excellent. Great driver, great tour guide he took us to amazing places. We enjoyed the tour and all the places we went to were great.

Really enjoyed this experience. Visibility wasn't great the day we did it but hey that's Vancouver. Would definitely recommend
