If you have a short time in Vancouver and want to explore the city, this comprehensive tour is the way to go. Drive to Vancouver’s top sightseeing locations; get lessons on photography on the best spots for views. From hiking in old-growth forests, to Granville Island, Stanley Park, English Bay sunsets and the night lights of Gastown, you will come home with beautiful mementos of the city.

We start at your downtown accommodation and travel to the North Shore via the Lions Gate Bridge. Reaching a hiking trail in North Vancouver, we start the day with a 2 hour hike through old growth forest, enjoying waterfalls and lookouts.

We continue to Granville Island where we check out hidden gems as well as the public market, grabbing lunch.

Where you'll be

Lynn Canyon Park is one the most popular trails for locals, much less crowded than the 'touristy' Capilano Suspension bridge park.
Granville Island has some unique spots alongside the popular farmer's market. Stanley Park and English Bay is excellent to photograph during the 'golden hour' and sunset times. Gastown and Chinatown are stunning at night. All these stops include hidden gems only locals know, along with the best views to photograph.

Really enjoyed the sight-seeing experience, particularly the hike to the waterfall. Great way to see the key highlights of the city and get some good photos.

A wonderful experience to feel how Vancouver is. Hiking in the wood to see the beautiful view is really gorgeous! Thumb up for this . The city walk is also impressive, especially taken photos by only iPhone can make make pictures so nice. Throughout the tour, Nafee is nice and professional and his professional skill in hospitality and photo taking made us unforgettable. Will definitely recommend my friend to find him for tour. Value for money!

If you’re in Vancouver for a couple days and don’t know how to spend it, Nafees is your guy! The whole trip was a wonderful experience and without a heartbeat I highly recommend to anyone thinking about purchasing. Nafees is extremely friendly and by the end of the night will make you feel as if you’ve known him a lifetime. Getting around Vancouver might be a little tricky for tourist since they don’t have any ride sharing apps yet so having Nafees show us what Vancouver has to offer was super helpful and we are very glad to have experienced it!

The experience with Nafees was truly amazing. We were only in Vancouver for a couple of days and wasn’t to sure on what activities to do. There’s no ride sharing apps so going to places would have been a lil difficult and confusing to tourists such as our selves so having Nafees with us was truly helpful. He took us to many beautiful places in Vancouver that we couldn’t imagine to do by ourselves! If we ever come back to Vancouver we will def book something with Nafees again and recommend to anyone looking.

Nafees was amazing. He knew small details about the nooks and corners of the canyon and showed us some amazing locations. Even though we didn’t have a camera, he showed us very interesting techniques on our camera phones. My fiancé had an injured foot and Nafees took additional care of where he is putting his feet all throughout the trip. He is knowledgeable and also gave us additional information on rest of Vancouver. I would highly recommend this experience.
