3 hour private guided tour of Vancouver
There’s much more to see in Vancouver beyond the city’s unique natural setting. On this 3-hour introductory Vancouver City Tour with an architect, urban expert, or local historian, we will traverse both the city and its varied history as the green gateway to the Pacific, from its First Nations heritage to 21st-century metropolis. Together, we’ll learn how a rail outpost on the edge of Canada grew to become an idyllic coastal city, frequently cited as among the best in the world in which to live.

Dinner reservation at Market by Jean Georges at the hotel
Contemporary Downtown Vancouver restaurant that reflects Vancouver’s vibrant restaurant scene
or
Tojo’s
The restaurant features a grand sushi bar and a panorama kitchen.   Experience Japanese cuisine with the best seasonal ingredients of the West Coast.   At a table or the sushi bar, try omakase, a tasting menu comprised of the day’s best culinary pieces.

Day 2:
Private Foodie Tour at Granville Island Market with a chef
We’ll begin our Savoring Vancouver Food Tour by hopping on the commuter ferry and crossing False Creek to reach the culinary treasure of Granville Island. Once a mere sandbar, this man-made island was a bustling industrial site for many years until it was repurposed in the mid-1970s. This urban revival has more recently accelerated, making it a cultural and gastronomic hub of the city with a large public market, craft distiller, sake maker, brewers, hip cafés, innovative restaurants, entertainment and theatre venues.
Expertly led by our guide, you’ll be introduced to Granville Island’s top purveyors and indulge in several tastings throughout the market. We may stop in at the local fishmonger to see the catches of the day and sample some delicious smoked salmon, or tantalize our taste buds with some BC artisanal cheeses, chocolate, charcuterie, seasonal produce, or local baked goods. 
Have a drink at Botanist, at the Fairmont Pacific Rim hotel and home to sophisticated yet whimsical cocktails, with a number of chemist-like designs from their unique cocktail lab, equipped with things like centrifuges and ice-sculpting tools.

Coastal Mountain & Waterfall Experience by seaplane
Depart downtown Vancouver along the North Shore Mountains and have your camera ready as you cruise by the “Lion’s Peaks” and then make your way through Howe Sound. Soar above the rugged mountain wilderness of the Coast Mountain Range and escape to Indian Arm fjord, a heavily forested and secluded narrow inlet with sheer granite cliffs on either side. This tour includes an extra landing at Indian Arm for a brief photo stop, before returning back to Downtown Coal Harbour.

Dinner reservation at Ancora Waterfront Dining and Patio
Situated along Vancouver’s picturesque False Creek seawall, Ancora Dining and Patio serves Peruvian and Japanese cuisine while incorporating the traditions of West Coast sustainable seafood.  Enjoy the sunset.

Day 4:

Accommodation at Clayoquot Wilderness Resort*****
Only reachable by seaplane. 
Located in the pristine Clayoquot Sound World Biosphere on the wild west coast of Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Clayoquot Wilderness Resort is an exclusive, 21st-century, safari-style Canadian glamping destination and adventure resort that’s great for people of any generation. Your Canadian wilderness vacation comes with five-star cuisine, the spa and great white tents with their fluffy duvets and antiques, but we also offer a deep and meaningful commitment to restoring the land.
From the moment that guests step off the floatplane, to that first glass of sparkling wine, to that hike through old growth forest, the resort staff (and their dogs) are there to offer a guest experience that is restoring to the soul and this beautiful land.
Your tent, like those of the most beautiful lodges in Africa is divine, the pinnacle of “rustic chic” for nights under the stars lulled by the sounds of the surrounding fauna and the undulating forest.
