Vancouver, Canada-port

“Gassy Jack” Deighton saw a chance to make money from the miners on their way to the Yukon and the saloon he built became the focus of the shanty town known as Gas Town. From here, modern Vancouver was born - Canada’s third largest city. The government persuaded the settlers to change the name of the town to Vancouver, after Captain George Vancouver, who sailed the area’s waters in 1792. Today Vancouver offers travelers tram rides to the top of Grouse Mountain, the lovely Ming Dynasty Gardens, historic Gas Town and picturesque Stanley Park.

The city of Vancouver, in the Canadian province of British Columbia, is a shining light in the Northwest, and has been consistently ranked as one of the most livable cities in the world. During your visit you will discover why this vibrant city was chosen as the home for the 2010 Winter Olympics.

Starting off from the pier, you will head into the heart of Downtown Vancouver, a bustling urban environment surrounded by water and mountains. The city has one of the most diverse populations in North America, with over 50% of the population having a first language that is not English. During your tour, you will travel through the second largest Chinatown in North America en route to Stanley Park.

A stop will also be made at Stanley Park, which is larger in size than New York's Central Park and the place where the locals come to relax and play. Within the Park you will find magnificent old growth trees and a spectacular display of First Nation Totem Poles. A 5 1/2 mile seawall serves to protect it from the winter storms that come in from the adjacent Pacific Ocean. Enjoy free time here to stroll about and explore the Park, capturing photos of the majestic mountains that form a beautiful back-drop for the city.

Following your tour of the city's highlights, you will transfer back to the pier.

Please note: There are cobblestoned surfaces to negotiate in Gastown. The tour is available to wheelchair guests who have a collapsible wheelchair, are able to make their own way on and off the coach and have a companion to assist them. Those with mobility concerns are cautioned to evaluate their personal level of stamina and ability. Casual, weather appropriate clothing and flat, comfortable walking shoes are suggested. The order of the sites viewed or visited may vary.
