We were fortunate enough to have Alfred for our full day tour of Vancouver and sounding area. We have been here before and returned four years later with my brother in law and sister in law. They had not been here before, so we thought it would be nice to do this. It was a very pleasant informative experience. Alfred... More

In every respect, this was an excellent tour. It was so easy to reserve. The guide arrived promptly at the airport to pick us up in a very comfortable van.

Matthew was a wonderful tour guide. We had a large family, including our 92 year-old mother, and he insisted on pushing her wheelchair for us. He was very informative, very personable and we would highly recommend him to others.

Staying in Yaletown & False Creek North

Neighbourhood Profile
Yaletown & False Creek North
Yaletown has risen from the ashes of its rough-and-tumble industrial past into one of Vancouver's new chicest neighbourhoods. The place responsible for originating of the phrase 'skid row' might not call to mind independently-owned boutiques and terraced cafes, but having swallowed the waterfront lines of False Creek North, the resulting amalgamation transformed the area into an elegant, stylish hotspot with a view. Its youthful vibe owes to the many young families and young professionals who live there, bolstering nightlife and restaurant variety along its cobbled streets. It is the flagship neighbourhood for modern revitalization, and the It-Spot for boutique hotels and modish eats.
