Food tour highlites mini veggie sticks immersed in a saffron sauce covered in a mozzarella mound, a pizza delight. Next stop the fish market pass tray of dried smoked salmon morsels marinated in teriyaki, maple syrup and lathered in hot spices. We meandered over to the wine bar for a cab sav and merlot tasting then we exited the building to view pictures and tablets of yesterday’s shipbuilders. Up the street to the ice creamery a fav in the area...notice the veggie boxes along the way...easy pickings! Final stroll to the art wall for a quick pic with the family to remember our visit. The sweetest surprise was the aroma emanating from the warm bun shop...the buns are filled with coconut, chocolate and maple syrup. It’s a must stop and my favorite. Add another experience by taking the Seabus from downtown Vancouver to North Vancouver. The Shipyard tour is appealing to all ages, offers variety, shipyard history, and a tasting of the areas foods.

This was a great tour. We were picked up at our hotel by Nola. She was awesome and gave us a lot of great information about the area. We joined the rest of the group and set our for our adventure. Leslie was our guide and he was awesome. 24 in our group. We made a few extra stops at sights that were nice to see. Plenty of restrooms where we went. The Capilano suspension bridge was on my bucket list. It was awesome and we went on some other paved hikes - cliff walks and treetops adventure. Really incredible views. Beautiful place. There are a couple shops and restaurants you can visit there too. Grouse mountain was great too. We highly recommend this tour. Appropriate for all ages.

A great day out with our fantastic tour guide Mike.

Excellent trip. Plenty of time is given at both locations which enables you to see all the attractions on offer. Mike our driver and guide was knowledgable and also very funny. Being able to jump the queues at Capilano Suspension bridge was a real benefit as it was very busy with hour long queues. My wife and I had a great time.

It's a hell of a ride! The view from the peak is breathtaking

I had an amazing time. Our guide Jeff was the best too!
