Vancouver is a relatively young city but has become a major seaport and bustling metropolis. It is considered one of the most livable cities in the world. This tour explores Vancouver from all angles. We run by some of Vancouver’s nicest False Creek waterfront areas and through some of Vancouver’s underprivileged districts. The tour takes us ‘underneath’ Canada Place and into one of the city’s most historic yet unknown parks. Then we run through historic Gastown and Chinatown. We continue our run around False Creek visiting the 2010 Winter Olympic village and on to Leg N Boot Square, the site of a former sawmill where the mystery of a 120 year old severed leg is still a talking point. We stop for a cold drink – on us! Next we run around Granville Island visiting areas that locals don’t even know about. From there we take a five minute boat ride to the north side of False Creek and run through the downtown peninsula back to our starting point.
