Easy to find someone to help answer your questions about shops, services or directions around YVR. Look for a green coat.

Make this your first stop in Vancouver to make the best use of your time in this amazing city. The ladies gave us maps, resources and a suggested itinerary for a rainy day and we got to see so much.

Well staffed and so helpful with our many questions on where to go and what we should visit in a limited time frame. Plenty maps and flyers on places to visit from the whole area.

Hello and thank you for visiting us in December. We do have another location at YVR, in the International Arrivals terminal that is larger than our location at the Domestic Terminal. We look forward to seeing you again!
