      What’s there to love about a lengthy layover? Truthfully, nothing much. But sitting around eating sad airport snacks and watching time tick by isn’t the only way to wait out your layover. Instead, join a Vancouverite on the ultimate Vancouver layover tours that squeeze in both the highlights and hidden gems. Vancouver airport layover tours give you the opportunity to explore this incredible cityscape, from the bijou boutique stores in the downtown area to cobbled old-town districts that paint a picture of Vancouver’s past. One thing’s for sure: There’s no better way to spend a layover.

      Layover tours with a local insider

      We get it – getting out and exploring an unfamiliar city in limited time is a daunting prospect, especially when you have a flight to catch. But who needs to struggle with a GPS and guidebook when our Vancouver airport layover tours give you a local to do all the hard work for you? Getting around is a breeze when you have a Vancouverite to plan every aspect of your trip, from transport to timing. Even better, your local guide will come to pick you up right at the airport and drop you off again. We couldn’t make your Vancouver layover tours more stress-free and seamless if we tried.

      Vancouver Layover Tours
      Not just Vancouver for visitors

      Vancouver has no lack of world-renowned sights and exciting things to do, but on Vancouver layover tours with a local, you won’t just get caught up in the tourist traps. Sure, you’ll explore iconic attractions like bustling Main St and the historic Chinatown, but we’ll also take you off the tourist trail to see the places only locals know about. Instead of staying in the city center, your Vancouver airport layover tours might take you further west to the modern marina of Coal Harbour, or even deeper inland to Granville Island, a popular shopping district loved by locals.

        Derek our guide was excellent. Relaxed, friendly, knowledgeable and informative. We are fit and healthy in our late 60’s and the pace was just right. We saw most of the downtown area from Canada Place, Gas town, Granville Island and English Bay returning via the more residential areas and shopping areas; picking up architectural highlights and points if interest all along the route. We always take in a walking tour on our city visits and this is up there with the best. Well done Derek and thanks for opening our eyes to delights of this wonderful city. I have no hesitation in recommending Derek and this perfect unscripted tour of Vancouver.

        My Vancouver walking tour with Kim was the best tour I've ever take. She is incredibly kind and knowledgeable. She plotted out a wonderful route that took us all over the city and she took into account my interests. She has an incredible knowledge of the history of Vancouver and the architecture. She planned a wonderful sunset happy hour. I had so much fun and I consider her a new friend.

        We hiked for half day in Stanley Park, Vancouver. It was an amazing experience and Derek was a great guide. He was accommodating and knowledgeable. A great use of our short time in the city.

        Kim was great as far as tailoring our 4 hours around what we wanted to see. Vancouver is beautiful city, but it sure helped to have a local showing us quite a few interesting spots.
