Discover Day Tours
The Discover Vancouver Tour is a daily tour that features local secrets and key attractions in Vancouver. You’ll visit Stanley Park, a renowned urban park located in the heart of the city, and one of the locals’ favorites spots, the Granville Island Public Market.
Another popular day tour is the new Discover North Vancouver and Capilano Suspension Bridge Tour, which showcases the trendy new area in town, the Shipyards District and its micro-breweries.
A fun day trip for those who have already seen the city and wish to explore lesser-known locations within the Greater Vancouver Area is the Fraser Valley Wine Tour, that you can book for private groups. It includes many wine tastings!
Take a Day Tour to Vancouver Island
Discover Canada Tours also leads exciting day tours to Vancouver Island and Victoria, BC’s capital city. The Discover Victoria & Butchart Gardens Tour begins onboard BC Ferries, a 90-minute voyage through the stunning Southern Gulf Islands. Guests can occasionally see dolphins, humpback and gray whales, and many seabirds during the journey. Once in Victoria, there is plenty of time to explore the charming seaside town at your own pace or take part in a complimentary guided walking tour. Discover Canada Tours is the only sightseeing company that includes optional walking tours. Before heading back to Vancouver, you can’t miss the stunning Butchart Gardens and the unique history behind their creation.
Lastly, if you have already visited the capital city, you can explore beyond it in our exclusive Discover Vancouver Island & Malahat SkyWalk Tour, which includes admission to the newest family-friendly attraction. This spiral tower lookout is the first of its kind in BC, and provides 360-degree views of islands, forests and mountains in two countries. You will also have the opportunity to walk around the town of Duncan, known for its 38 First Nations’ totem poles.
If you’re an active adventurer and a mountain lover, the most popular tour for you is the Discover Whistler Tour, which includes a walking tour of the village. The journey leading to Whistler is an adventure in itself, as it travels on the breath-taking Sea-to-Sky Highway, regarded as one of the world’s top scenic drives.
You can book it along with admission to the Sea to Sky Gondola, which offers majestic views of Howe Sound, the world’s most southern glacier fjord, and the Municipality of Squamish, Canada’s outdoor recreation capital. You can also sign up for action-packed activities on your own, such as biking, bungee-jumping and several others. For visitors interested in local Indigenous culture, a visit to the Squamish Lil’Wat Cultural Centre is a must!
