    Parking in $25. Most places do not take cash.
    Market Place and Food options are great!
    Shade areas to eat are near the Farm building.

    PNE was pretty fun this year although some of the bigger acts were missing (Peking acrobats, etc). We saw the horse show, super dogs, high diving, knights of valour, pig races and the magic show. The magic show at the barn was pretty impressive even though it was fairly short! They also had dinosaurs and a Monet experience which was pretty cool.

    As a lover of escape rooms, this was a must visit. We, a couple, did the Zita room and it was really challenging and fast paced (which was exactly what we like). The puzzles were the right type of difficult and the room was very immersive.

    Ghost Patrol was the right amount of challenging for an outdoor game for puzzle lovers. Make sure you work fast as in the time id shorter than you think!

    We made a last minute decision to check out some whale watching and it did not disappoint - from the amazing help with booking and picking a tour (thank you Tess and Sophia), to a guide (Garrick) who is obviously smitten with all marine life, to the beautiful orcas that graced us with their presence! 10/10 would recommend!!

    We opted for the "Mail Run Tour" as that seemed to provide the most trips up and down so we could experience lots of take offs and landings on the water. Having watched the planes take off and land from the observation dock, it seemed like that would be the most fun. Fortunately, the take offs and landings were uneventful.

    For us the tour was a bit of a misnomer as we did not carry any mail, but we certainly had commuters going from one island to another. It was funny to see some of the passengers just staring at their phone bored, while we were swiveling our head on all flights to take it all in. One person showed up with a hard hat, clearly on his way to a job site.

    Our tour was a single engine Cessna Grand Caravan EX, seating 9 with single pilot. This was not a sight-seeing tour, but more like a work trip with no narration of where we were or where we were going. (That's a different tour)

    We got a coffee and a small snack while waiting for the plane (see picture). Also available was more in the way of provisions at the departure lounge. (see picture)

    We flew to Salt Spring Island (Ganges Bay), to Maple Bay, then back to Salt Spring Island. At Salt Spring, we took a break and got lunch, had coffee at Salt Spring Coffee, went book shopping and then got back on the plane to return to Vancouver

    A word of caution, these planes are VFR (visual flight rules), which means pick your day to fly carefully as if the airport is socked in, no tour. Similarly, if a storm moved in very quickly, you might get stuck waiting for the weather to clear before you can fly back.

    The staff was very helpful with one of the passengers on the trip back to Vancouver who was quite infirm and needed help getting on and off the plane.

    Really friendly and helpful staff. Bikes were brilliant for looking round Stanley Park. Helmets included, and locks provuded. Loved it!

    We went on a private family tour with 14 around Stanley Island with Greg and Avery. Our ages were 9-47 with varying skills. We had a great time, and our guides were fantastic. I highly recommend an adventure with Cycle City.

    We did the Doomed to Win in Las Vegas.
    Setup and puzzles were great, alot of variety and a good challenge for intermediate players.

    Thank you Shawn for getting us prepared and ready to go in no time. He's awesome :) I highly recommend trying out waterbiking. It's very easy to pick up and very rewarding. Great for teambuilding and group activity. We also saw some seal and a dolphin!

    Wildlife is wild, but we were lucky. We saw orcas, humpbacks, seals and a bald eagle.

    The staff was very friendly and helpful. Our guide was knowledgeable and the captain was good too.

    Me and my girlfriend thoroughly enjoyed through premium rockies christmas tour. Ben was our tour guide and he was absolutely brilliant. He had so so much historical knowledge about vancouver, kamloops and banff. He was friendly and helpful and went above and beyond to ensure everyone of the tour had a great time. The tour wasn't too busy and jam packed with actives so you can enjoyed each area your in with the opportunities to add activies if wanted. 100% recommend this tour
