To know Vancour, take a tour with Michael
Sep 2021
Fantastic. Tons of great info about Vancouver's history, ecology, housing and costs, building codes, architecture and neighborhoods. A lunch stop at the market and many places where we got out of the van to take in the views or monuments made the 6 hr tour so easy. But we were tired from our travels the day before so we opted to not go into the world's largest ice cream shop. Michael brought us each a cone to the van!

Fantastic tour of the city.
Sep 2021
Excellent tour. Highly recommend it to any new visitors to Vancouver. Michael Laurence was our guide and bus operator. He was engaging, funny, and unbelievably knowledgeable. He hit all of the important parts of Vancouver and we learned so much. There was a stop at Granville Island for lunch and touring the shops and then a later stop at an ice cream shop with 238 flavors of ice cream! Fantastic tour and well worth the money.

Excellent Vancouver City Tour
Sep 2019
We planned one extra day in Vancouver, prior to starting our Rocky Mountaineer vacation. Michael left a message at our hotel, indicating that he would pick us up at 0955 the next morning. He arrived right on time. His city tour was great. He limits his tour size to about 12 maximum (our group had 6 tourists). As the other reviewers have noted, he covers about as much of the city as possible within about a six hour time period, including stops with associated walking tours, and lunch break (extra cost). While on the bus, Michael is full of stories about the city and its residents, and some stories about his life. He speaks clearly, has much to share, has a great sense of humor, and is a very friendly guy. Most enjoyable!

Mike Lawrence, tour guide and owner, took us through all of the neighborhoods of the city. He shared a wealth of information and history of the city. He was very accommodating to his passengers ensuring that we were enjoying the experience. Although this tour is a little bit more expensive than the others available, I recommend it because of Mike and because the Mercedes Sprinter was a very comfortable vehicle.

Grand Vancouver Tour
This was a fantastic tour. And I highly recommend it to anyone who wants to familiarize themselves with both the city/neighborhoods, as well as the culture and history. Our tour leader, Michael, is a treasure trove of information. He was also very timely, flexible, and thoughtful. His tour was extremely well organized, and he brought us to see some sights that would be missed without this tour. We learned about the trees, roses, totems, and even visited an ice cream shop with almost 250 flavors. His van was very comfortable, and the small group size is optimal. We are so glad we had this tour as our introduction to Vancouver and highly recommend this.

Companies live or die by reviews. So Lawrance Tours is going to live to a happy old age. His pride in his city, his real world experieces and his joy in sharing this with us made for a full delightful day.
We did the city tour. Although we had been in Vancouver many times, we learned much and saw much more through his eyes as a long term resident.
