Overview

Go green and explore the gardens of Vancouver, the glasshouse of British Columbia. This private tour is ideal for the horticulture enthusiast or any admirer of natural beauty, offering a relaxing day discovering the stunning plant life of the city.

Begin by discovering a peaceful oasis in the heart of chaotic Chinatown. Wander in meditation at the award-winning Dr Sun Yat-Sen Classical Chinese Garden, where cherry blossom drifts over pagoda roofs to float on the clear pools below. Journey back in time to 15th century China and discover the principals of Taoism and Feng Shui embodied in the garden’s design. Harmony and juxtaposition abound, with huge boulders against delicate foliage, and auspicious statues of dragons and phoenixes. See if you can spot the turtles and fish hiding in the pond. Then explore the small streets of Chinatown, with its herbal medicine clinics, intriguing spice stalls and tiny teashops.

Next, head to the highest point in the city, Queen Elizabeth Park, which offers a spectacular panorama of the city and ocean, and colourful sunken gardens. You’ll be able to explore the glass dome of the Bloedel Floral Conservatory, full of tropical plants and animals. Entrance to the VanDusen Botanical Garden is also included, where you can visit the stunning orchid-inspired visitor centre, a model of sustainable design. Whether you’re passionate about perennials or just nuts for nature, this garden tour is guaranteed to be a fruitful experience.
