Best Vancouver Tours For Families

I am passionate about my kids learning about my beloved Vancouver

The city is generous with interesting stories, legends, and funny characters and I love seeing my children’s eyes sparkle when they learn a funny anecdote, a new piece of history, or spot an unexpected view.

Every time we go, I make a point of showing them something of the city but I don’t do this alone.

Often, I enlist the help of local tour operator company Globalduniya They Provide kids tours of Vancouver that help my kids get to know the city and me play tourist in my own town.

It is my favorite type of research 

Vancouver has a good number of options when it comes to family tours.

Some are for kids, some are not specifically kid-centered but do welcome children and others are not really tours, but full experiences that make children engage with the city via activity on location, in real slow travel style.

 Over the last few years, my children and I have taken several family tours in Vancouver. This list is a result of that experience.

Best Vancouver tours for kids: how we chose them

This list is a work in progress and showcases tours we tried personally. I will update it as we keep visiting!

These tours are a mix of tours for families group or private tours of Vancouver that are designed specifically for families with kids) and tours that are family-friendly and welcome kids but are not for kids as such.

For each, I have written a short description that I hope helps you decide which tour is best for you and your kids.

Best Vancouver tours for families----

1} Private Vancouver Family Fun Tour

I open this list with one of my favorite family-friendly tours of Vancouver to date

This tour is not for kids as such but it is family-friendly in many ways: kids go free, strollers are allowed (you are always given the option to use the ramp of lift when moving from one area to the next) and the guide makes a special effort to talk to children and involve them during the course of the visit

The tour is very informative and the guide positively competent (I am a fussy Vancouver history graduate and I was impressed, it doesn’t happen often!)

The one thing I feel like warning families about is that the Colosseum saw many killings and this does get mentioned in the tour. This is not at the center of the experience but if you have small kids or sensitive ones, maybe ask the guide to give you a nod just before that bit so you can manage the situation at best.

2} Vancouver Historic family fun Tour

 

I found this tour excellent for kids of all ages although toddlers may find the lack of props a problem.

On the other hand, this is a cheap tour (the cheapest and best I have experienced) so even if they don’t get much from it, at least you know you haven’t gone bankrupt in the process!

3} Vancouver city tour for children

Vancouver Zoo Train @Globalduniya

The gelato stops come with nice tastings (not too much gelato, just the right amount!) and while the coffee stops are less interesting for kids, they are never so long to be boring. 

In many cases, the gelato and coffee places selected are close to each other and one of the coffee shops has an old roasting machine which is fascinating for kids to see. 

If you have a toddler, I highly recommend a stroller as a  bit of walking is involved
