We booked after a quayside haggle was kept waiting for 30 mins before getting picked up in bus, went to herring cove and totem pole park with tour of downtown too but must admit it was poor value for money. It was disorganised and felt like a bit of a scam to be fair.

Wanted a tour that would show take us to Herring Cove for possible bear sighting. Tour length of approx 2hrs 30mins. We spent over 60 minutes at Potlatch Park . The waterfall stop is a waste of time. Then because of the stops earlier we only had 5mins at Herring Cove..by some
