This tour shows some of the best of Vancouver. It combined my two interests, bicycling and art. The route is easy as it follows the virtually all flat waterfronts in Vancouver, which are incredibly scenic. The tour is good because the information given covers the history of why the city commisions the sculptures, and they are site specific to the history of the spot. Even though i have grown up in Vancouver, i did not know this art history of our public sculptures. I now appreciate these sculptures that are not of the stunning, beautiful type, (well, except for the spectaculare 'A-Mazing-Laughter' one) but are meaningful to Vancouver..Because of this, I think this would be an excellent tour for a tourist visiting Vancouver. It is also great for long time Vancouverites because of all the recent changes in the areas of the city. (I had no idea there is a beach/mini forest island off of the Olympic Village). You will really get a feel for the city's roots. It was lovely seeing all the people enjoying themselves in numerous ways, including the large Hawaii dance troupe practicing their hula moves, and the hilarious pampered dogs being transported on bikes... The tour guide was very well spoken and knew her subject. The two women conducting the tour were very attentive. I was amazed that when I inconveniently got a flat tire, one of the guides actually insisted that I continue on with her bike, while she walk my bike to the end of the tour where she did meet us. What service! This tour was worth the 20.00., which goes to a youth charity.
