“Great Overview of City”
Reviewed 26 March 2012

The first morning of our vacation, not sure of what to do or where to start, we decided to call the tour company. We were so pleased that we did! We got a great overview of the city and saw and learned some things that our family who live in Vancouver had never even seen! Our tour guide was great and gave us so much information. We saw Stanley Park, Lion's Gate Bridge, Bloedel Conservatory, Vancouver Lookout at UBC, ChinaTown, GasTown and Granville Island. We could have remained behind at Granville Island to shop and explore if we wanted to, but it was a cold day. A great 4 hours for $69.

“Very personable guides and a great itinerary”
Reviewed 18 February 2012

I did the day trip to Whistler last summer and it was a great day. What I appreciated a lot is that Landsea Tours provides some options once we got to Whistler. If you just want free time to explore that is fine, however they also can sell you a discounted ticket to the Peak 2 Peak which was a great price and the highlight of the trip. I was with some seniors and some that couldn't walk that well but we all went up on the Gondola. I have to tell you that its a great way to spend the day. Once on top we had lunch and had an incredible view of the Whistler and the lakes below. Its a very unique experience and we spent perhaps 2 1/2-3 hrs. That gave us a little bit of time once back in Whistler. Our guide was Gavin and very funny and informative. He gave us admission tickets to the Lilwat Cultural center and it was quite interesting. The whole day was a great experience. We also went to Victoria with them later that week and loved it. What makes Landsea different is that they took us to downtown Victoria first and gave us a choice of admission to one of five attractions including the BC Royal Museum. We then went to the gardens which was great because in the afternoon the crowds were way less and we had more time to explore without all the people. My concierge recommended Landsea to me and I'm glad he did. Its a great company and I'd take any of their tours when I come back to Vancouver.

“Lovely day out”
Reviewed 29 October 2011

We were tossing up between a few tours, but thought we would go for Landsea Tours as it is a more personalised experience with a smaller bus with large windows. They were happy to pick us up and drop us off all the way out of downtown Vancouver. Our driver and tour guide, Gavin, picked us up promptly and we set off for our Whistler tour. It was a small group and he was very informative and funny as we drove on up to Whistler, through the town of Squamish. We had about 3 to 4 hours of free time up in Whistler which was nice for us to wander around and grab a bite to eat. On the way back down to the city we spotted a mama black bear with two cubs, and also stopped by Shannon Falls. All in all, a great day out with an awesome guide who set a really comfortable and laid-back tone for the trip.

“Great Tour”
Reviewed 27 October 2011

I was visiting Vancouver on a business trip and only had a few hours to explore the city. I found a great 4-hour city tour with LandSea Tours. The very friendly and knowledgable tour guide picked me up at my hotel promplty at 9am. We toured all the major highlights of the city including, Granville Island, Stanley Park, Gas Town, and China Town. The tour guide was very knowledgable and added a bit of humor to the tour which we all enjoyed.

“Great times and value”
Reviewed 27 October 2011

Did the Capilano and Grouse Mountain & Victoria and But hart Gardens tours with two separate guides. The tours were well planned and gave you enough time at each of the locations to see enough of the place you were there to see. The guides each provided facts about Vancouver and the relevant destinations and answered the questions of those on the tour to the best of their ability. Well worth what was paid, would do another tour with them when next in Vancouver.
