The team at Cycle City Tours was fantastic. We rented bikes and used their map to explore the city by ourselves. They took their time to ensure we had the right bikes and knew where we were going. Despite the rain we have a great impression of Vancouver.

What a terrific bike ride we had today! Nick was amazing. He was informative, patient and gracious. He showed us many places we wouldn't have seen otherwise. It was a very fun day and a terrific introduction to Vancouver city in general, and to Stanley Park in particular.

City cycle tours have become my go to way to explore any new city and this one did not disappoint. I did the five hour tour and we ended up being a nice group of three plus our guide Nick who was quite knowledgeable and very helpful.

Vancouver is a great city and very bikeable. Cycle City's The grand tour goes all around it. Ifny is a great guide. She's personable and interesting and very proud of her city. I've done bike tours in a number of cities and this one stands out. Five stars check it out.

In order to get a better understanding of the city of Vancouver, we booked a five hour Highlights tour through Viatur. Our guide, Ifny, started by taking us through the neighborhoods towards Stanley Park. She, not a local, is enamored by the city and it showed in her passion. She described the bike paths of the city, and we stopped... More

Our bike tour around Vancouver with Greg was the best way to see and feel the city. Greg's insights into city living and its history taught us so much. I felt the ride was easy enough for beginner riders. Our group of 10 had a mix of older people and a family with 2 youths and we all seemed travel... More

Staying in Downtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Vancouver's business district, the Downtown area is bustling with smartly-dressed folks balancing their lattes and briefcases to and from work. The area's plethora of contemporary commercial, residential, and corporate spaces has bred a landscape of nouveau restaurants, chain cafes, and upmarket shopping options. However, located right on the waterfront of Vancouver's energetic Harbour, Downtown is a also popular public meeting spot, with a massive public library and convention center attracting a bevy of visitors both local and not, as well as a hotspot for the arts, being home to some of Vancouver's most cutting-edge galleries. With behemoth architecture and a professional air, Downtown means business.
