Know More about this tour

Meet your small group at a bike rental shop in downtown Vancouver to begin your 5-hour tour of the city. During a safety briefing, you’ll be fitted with a bike, helmet and lock. Whether you're getting back on for the first time in years or use a bike every day, it's sure to be an enjoyable ride. The proof? It's rated among Vancouver’s top sightseeing tours by TripAdvisor reviewers. You’ll get plenty of opportunities to snap pictures and rest at well-timed stops to learn the city’s history.

Starting in the West End, a waterfront neighborhood of historic homes, make your way into Stanley Park, the 1,000-acre (405-hectare) urban green space surrounded by ocean on three sides. Capture beautiful views of the city skyline, the snowcapped North Shore mountains, and on cloudless days, Mount Baker in Washington state as you cycle along the park’s perimeter seawall.

Veer off onto one of the park’s many trails and enter a rain forest, cruising by Beaver Lake before you stop to admire a 700-year-old cedar tree. Learn about the diverse ecosystems here and catch glimpses of wildlife like bald eagles, herons and river otters along the way. Your guide also shares engaging history about the First Nations people who once inhabited these grounds.


Switching gears, hop off your bike and onto a ferry! Your destination is Granville Island, where you'll have a 45-minute break for lunch (own expense) and time to explore the open market boasting hundreds of vendors selling food, arts and crafts. 


After lunch, cycle along False Creek and into Olympic Village, with views of Science World. Ride into the lively Chinatown and visit Dr. Sun Yat-Sen Classical Garden, named by National Geographic as the 'world’s top city garden,' for an idea of what 15th-century China may have looked like.

Then it’s off to Gastown to learn about its colorful history as a logging outpost. This cool neighborhood is teeming with upscale restaurants and boutiques that you might want to check out later on your own.

Finally, make your way through Coal Harbour and watch seaplanes take off from Burrard Inlet before arriving back at the bike rental shop, where your tour ends.

  • Fantastic way to see Vancouver we had a very knowledgeable and interesting guide. Went through Stanley Park saw the totem poles and wild life. Went round English Bay where there are beautiful views of the ocean and on to Granville Island - great variety of places to pick up a tasty lunch - we opted for slices of Pizza and sat on a bench to eat them but you could have sat inside at other restaurants. Would probably suggest you take a bottle of water with you - it was a lovely warm day when we went but there were places to stop to pick up a bottle. Would highly recommend this tour to anyone visiting Vancouver

  • This was an excellent tour! Both our guides were very knowledgeable, good sense of humor, personal and organized! Bikes were in excellent condition and we would highly recommend this for things to do in Vancouver!

  • it's worth your money

  • Greg was an awesome and knowledgeable tour guide. This was a great way to see a lot of Vancouver while getting in a little exercise.

  • This tour was so much fun, even though my friend and I were not dressed appropriately. It rained and got chilly, but that didn't damper our experience. Great way to get acquainted with the city and see some amazing sights. The food market was awesome - as was the chicken pot pie. Our guide was great and I would highly recommend this tour.

  • The Vancouver tour was great!! Our guide Paulo was really amazing - I learned so many historical, interesting and fun facts about Vancouver and have encouraged my Vancouver friends to go on the tour as I am sure they will too!!! The five hours flew by!!!

  • Great overview of the city. The tour guide we got 9:30 slot was amazing, both very informative and funny. Lots of stops along the way to talk about the various sights. Mostly flat, very few uphills. With the bikes being in great condition, it was an easy ride. Was very happy that we did the tour on our first day in the city because it gave us a lot of insight into what to visit later during our stay. By late afternoon the pedestrian and car traffic made it a little challenging as we wrapped up the tour back in the center of the city nothing too terrible, just required a heightened awareness. Would definitely recommend this tour!

  • We LOVED this bike tour! Our guide was Greg and he was fantastic! Having lived in Vancouver for 20 years, it was so refreshing to hear his stories and his knowledge of this beautiful city! We went to Stanley Park and along the sea wall. We also went to the World Market for lunch. We rode by China Town and Gas Town as well. It was all just a fantastic experience and I highly recommend it for anyone who only has a day to spend in Vancouver!

  • Lucked into a beautiful day to cycle around a wide swath of Vancouver. We covered an incredible amount of ground. Spirited and fun guide. The tour made several stops to take in the views and hear our guide's perspectives. Nice 1 hour break at Granville Island for lunch mid-tour. Conventional and electric assist bikes available the tour is 95 flat so you don't need the electric option but boy are they fun!

  • Paulo made the day amazing. Perfect way to see the city! My 19 and 21 year old loved the tour also. Thx Paola
