Details

As one of the most popular attractions in Vancouver, Stanley Park is a must-see for visitors and locals alike. On this 3-hour private walking tour, you’ll take a journey through the park’s diverse ecosystem as a temperate rainforest. You’ll explore many aspects including the many plants and animals found throughout Stanley Park.

While we can’t make any guarantees, it’s likely you’ll spot some of our furry friends such as raccoons, squirrels, and if you’re lucky maybe even a cute little chipmunk or two. You should also encounter a variety of birds, including the common great blue heron.

Your guide will explain the history park, from the indigenous first nations to the European settlers, right up to today. Stories such as the infamous kidnapping performed by a group of students will keep you entertained while you stroll along the seawall, stopping every now and then to take in the glorious views of downtown Vancouver.

My friends and I received an amazing tour of Stanley Park. We learned so much about Vancouver's local history and current issues, and Alex gave us a really good sense of the other areas we would like to explore. I enjoyed the first Nations history and beautiful scenery that Stanley park offers. This is a great way to get introduced to the city of Vancouver.

I wish we had more time in this beautiful city. Stanley Park is stunning and our family of 9 enjoyed the tour with Acelle. Her humour was dry but witty and she did an excellent job of keeping everyone engaged, especially the younger kids.

I really want to give this tour 5 stars but we were very unlucky with the weather (it rained). We still had a good time though and our guide did their very best to make the best of the conditions.

My partner and I took the Stanley Park tour with Alex and had so much fun. We could have walked most of the places alone and not had any idea of the interesting stories. The park is beautiful and the perfect backdrop for the photos that Alex took of us. Thanks for a fun afternoon.

We have just done Stanley Park tour and it was amazing! We had doubts in booking Stanley Park walking tour but glad we did. We learnt a lot about rainforest, First Nations of Pacific Northwest and wildlife. Not to forget about beautiful pictures the guide took of us. It is such a great idea: to have a professional photographer on a walking tour. Now there are two of us in our vacation pictures. Thank you very much Boutique traveler, we had much fun today!
