Discover Vancouver on today's optional guided city tour. See restored Gastown, colourful Chinatown and Burrard Inlet waterfront, then cross over the Lion's Gate Bridge into 'North Van' and brave the famous Capilano Suspension Bridge, which stretches over a vertiginous gorge. Afterwards, explore at your leisure.

Spend another day at leisure in Vancouver, or join today's optional excursion to beautiful Vancouver Island and the unashamedly 'British' provincial capital of British Columbia, charming Victoria. Explore the vast Parliament Buildings and grand Empress Hotel, and visit the world-famous Butchart Gardens, boasting over a million plants including several hundred floral species.

Further Information

Hotel transfer times

The transfer time from the airport to your hotel is approximately 30 minutes.

Passports and visas

British citizens require machine-readable passports when travelling to Canada. Visas are not normally required for entry, but for travel from 15th March 2016 visitors to Canada must apply for an eTA online with Canadian Immigration at least 72 hours before departure at www.canada.ca/eta . The current charge is seven Canadian dollars for British Citizens. British subjects, and anyone who has a criminal record or has ever been arrested, should consult the Canadian Embassy as a visa may be required.

Tipping

Gratuities are a way of life in North America, and it is generally accepted that they form part of a person's earnings. Customary gratuity to a coach driver and tour manager is about $5 per person per day; in a taxi or a restaurant leave 15-20 per cent of the bill and in a bar leave a dollar or so per drink.

Smoking

Smoking is not permitted on any coach forming part of your holiday; regular stops will be made though for your comfort en route. The majority of hotels in North America are non-smoking throughout including in all bedrooms. In general smoking outside is acceptable, but do look out for signs prohibiting this close to public entrances or bus stops.

On your flight

All outbound flights depart and arrive on the same day. All return flights leave in the evening and land in the UK the next day. On-board meals will usually include lunch and a snack on outward flights, and dinner and breakfast on your flight home. Soft drinks are complimentary, but some airlines will charge for alcoholic drinks.

Luggage allowance

You are permitted to take one suitcase per person on the aircraft, which should not exceed 23kg.

Helicopter flights

Sightseeing flights by helicopter are weight controlled and balanced. Please contact us if you wish to book a helicopter flight and your bodyweight exceeds 250lb. (In such cases, a seat may have to be left empty, and some companies may charge a premium.)

Special requirements

If you have notified us of any special requirements, please check that they have been noted and acknowledged. This is especially important with any dietary needs you may have.

Disabled access

The majority of our tours involve a certain amount of walking, including a short walk from the coach stop to the town, attraction or venue you're visiting. If you are bringing a wheelchair, please let us know at the time of booking so that appropriate arrangements can be made.

Itinerary changes

Occasionally, for operational reasons, we may have to change the order of the excursions on your holiday. The final day-by-day itinerary will be confirmed on your Final Travel Documents, which you will receive approximately three weeks prior to your departure.

Changes to your hotels

Should circumstances require, we reserve the right to accommodate you in alternative hotels, of a similar standard, nearby. Full details of your hotels will be sent with your Final Travel Documents.

Hotel rooms

Standard hotel rooms in North America will contain one or two double- or queen-sized beds, and it is not possible to add extra beds to the room. Parties consisting of more than two travellers, but who have only booked one room, will be expected to make use of the two beds provided. If this is a concern, you may wish to consider booking more than one room for your group.

*Low deposit of £49 per person applies to new bookings made between 21st June and 31st July 2017 (inclusive) only. This offer only applies to selected air-inclusive holidays. This offer is subject to availability and may be withdrawn at any time.

Confusion about booking in on Line some of the group were able to. Others, including ourselves were told we could not. This was talking to the Air line direct.

I can thoroughly recommend this holiday. The Canadian scenery is breathtaking and our tour manager took us to all the beautiful places you see in the brochure. Lynn, our tour guide was brilliant, very knowledgeable and sensitive to everyone's needs. Our coach driver, Bill was also entertaining and an excellent driver. All the hotels were good or very good and well situated. The Calgary Stampede was a great experience with a wonderful finale show and fireworks. I can honestly say it is one of the best holidays I have had and would definitely return to Canada.
