9. Vancouver: False Creek Guided Walking Tour
Discover the False Creek inlet of Vancouver on a walking tour with a local guide. Visit significant areas and landmarks, including the Olympic Village and Vancouver's public labyrinth. Explore Granville Island, with a stop to get a sweet treat from the Public Market, and finish back at False Creek.
Meet your guide in front of the Science World building. Start by learning about the statue of Dr. James Till and Ernest McCulloch, the Canadian scientists who pioneered stem cell research in the 1960s.
From there, head to the Olympic Village, built for the 2010 Winter Olympic Games and now used as residential housing. Discover why it is considered one of the greenest communities in the world, and how it aligns with the city's goals of addressing environmental, economic, and social issues.
Next, walk by amazing sights including Habitat Island park, the Vancouver Labyrinth, Grassy Knoll, and the Stamps Landing dock. Take a ferry to continue the tour on Granville Island. Explore the island's many restaurants, stores, galleries, theaters, and parks with your guide.
Head to the famous Public Market, which is home to more than 50 independent food traders. Here, you'll get to taste a handmade donut from Lee’s Donuts, a beloved local vendor.
Finally, enjoy some free time on Granville Island to explore at your leisure. You can choose to return by ferry with your guide to your starting point in False Creek, or stay on and continue your adventure on your own.
