Cultural tours in Vancouver explore the art and entertainment scene, neighbourhoods and history, and Aboriginal culture. Vancouver was named a Cultural Capital of Canada in 2011 by the Government of Canada.

Guided cultural tours offer comprehensive insight and interpretive discussion. Take a neighbourhood tour to glimpse colourful homes, storefronts and parks; visit movie and television sets on a film tour; or join Aboriginal guides for authentic cultural experiences and activities.

Self-guided cultural tours allow for personalized itineraries and schedules. Stroll along beaches with mountain views to admire public art sculptures, visit artists’ studios for a behind-the-scenes look on a culture crawl, or imagine Vancouver more than one hundred years ago on a heritage walk.
