We had Alfred pick us up at the Cruise ship terminal to give us a tour before our hotel room was ready. He did a great job of giving us an overview of the city so we could pick out the areas we wanted to explore during our stay in Vancouver. The vehicle was roomy enough for all of us and our luggage and he had bottled water for everyone. We enjoyed the tour.

Booked a private tour with my senior parents and my adult sister. Alfred was very knowledgeable about the city and took us to Stanley Park where we saw a 300 year old tree, totem poles and lovely scenery. Alfred also took us through Gastown and China town. It was Canada Day when we were there, and since some of the areas that he wanted us to see were not accessible by car so Alfred took us to the University of British Columbia campus where we saw the beautiful rose garden and Alfred took a family picture for us. He certainly made me want to move to Vancouver! I highly recommend the tour, it is a very comfortable way to see the city with a small group.

Two couples - one drop off at hotel and other couple to airport.
Matt was our tour guide - very well pleased with tour.
We saw all the highlights and then some. Based on his suggestions, we had the next day to explore on our own. Vancouver is such a wonderful city - would definitely recommend to others and use their services again. We'll be back in Vancouver in the spring!

We recently booked the A.E Vancouver Private Tours for a day trip in Vancouver on our way back to NY after a 10 day Alaskan vacation. We had booked the redeye flight to NY to make the most of our day in Vancouver. Alfred did a great job helping us to select where to go/what to see and provided good direction so that we knew exactly what to do when we got off our ship. Matthew, our guide, was very knowledgeable , friendly and helped us to navigate the beautiful city. We hit too many stops to list but I'll try... we visited Olympic Village, Grandville Island, Chinatown, Little Italy, Gastown, Stanley Park, Victoria Park, Iona Beach - we even fit in time to take the aquabus and a great lunch at the Dockside Restaurant. We highly recommend a personalized tour with A.E Vancouver. Alfred & Matthew did an excellent job - I cannot imagine how our quick trip could have been any better.

A wonderful morning with A.E. Vancouver. The driver was very punctual picking us up at the cruise terminal. We had a wonderful tour of the city with several stops to stretch our legs and take pictures. The stop at Granville was just in time for lunch, and the driver even surprised us with a yummy treat!. I would highly recommend this company for a tour of Vancouver.
