Vancouver Day Tour
It’s the perfect time of year to explore our beautiful city of Vancouver on a private Vancouver day tour!
Begin with a breathtaking drive around Stanley Park, the gem of our City, with visits to Prospect Point and the Totem Poles for great photo opportunities. Explore the heights and beauty of Capilano Suspension Bridge and/or the views that Grouse Mountain has to offer. Then feast your eyes on Robson Street, the shopping hub, and into historic and cultural Gastown and Chinatown. Finally, take in all the amazing local eats and treats at Granville Island Public Market, with its cobblestoned streets filled with shops, kiosks and live entertainment…delights for all the senses.
Additional sights could include Fly Over Canada with time to enjoy the views from Canada Place, the lovely Queen Elizabeth Gardens, or stop for ice cream in English Bay and touch your toes to the sand at its waterfront.
Private Sedans for just the two of you, SUVs for your group of up to 5, Sprinter Vans for parties of 6 to 11 and Minibuses for larger groups. We can set a flexible schedule for your day tour or you are welcome to customize it to best suit how you wish to explore Vancouver. Half day or full day options. Vancouver awaits you!

Conference Direct says…
“I recently worked with Luxury Transport Inc. for my client’s 150 person conference in July, 2015 at the Westin Bayshore Hotel. Luxury Transport provided airport transfers to the majority of our guests and transportation for the entire group for three offsite events. We were extremely pleased with the quality of the staff and vehicles, their prompt attention to our questions and their ability to adapt quickly to our travel manifest changes. We received many compliments from attendees that appreciated the drivers’ friendliness and knowledge of the local Vancouver area which was shared during their airport transfers. I would recommend any organization coming to Vancouver and looking for high quality transportation services to work with Luxury Transport Inc.”
Whistler Congress Committee says…
“It is with heartfelt appreciation that the Whistler Congress Committee and all the members of Les Clefs d’Or Canada wish to say ‘Thank You’ for all your support, kindness and generosity in making the 10th National Les Clefs d’Or Congress the most successful to date. We are so proud to have had you as our industry partner…”
A recent Whistler client says…
“I was expecting basic service from Vancouver to Whistler, but got so much more! Our driver (Tej) was so accommodating and knowledgeable as he navigated us first to a grocery for utinsels so we could eat our picnic lunch, and then along the Sea to Sky Highway. Tej provided insight on the various places along the way, and also made recommendations on what to do and see in Whistler.”
BC Hydro’s annual Candlelight Dinner Event is happening in Vancouver on Wednesday October 22nd, 2014.
Participating restaurants such as ARC (at the Fairmont Waterfront Vancouver Hotel), Bacchus Restaurant, Bayside Lounge, Bridges Restaurant, Chambar, and Diva at the Met, to name just a few, will dim their lights while you dine by candlelight. In addition to superior culinary flavours, each venue will be offering special discounts on the evening. That’s energy savings AND pocket savings…a true win-win.
See here for a list of participating restaurants in Vancouver’s Lower Mainland…

Luxury Transport Inc. offers private Langley Wine Tours for small to large groups. We recently visited our local Langley Wineries to indulge in some fabulous flavours and take in some beautiful scenery.
Langley wineries are only about 45 minutes outside of downtown Vancouver and offer an extraordinary escape and memorable experience. There are a great number of first class wines to taste and some of the finest cuisine to be paired with it.
Truly a unique day tour experience!
Township 7 Vineyard & Winery oozes charm with a open-style tasting room overlooking the vines that produce their award-winning wines. Some of the grapes also come from the south Okanagan Valley. They are open year round, so you can pop in for a tasting or tour or even plan to attend one of their wine or culinary events or seminars.
Backyard Vineyards’s grapes are made from 100% BC grapes grown in their Langley vineyard with fruitful additions from the Fraser Valley and South Okanagan. They are known for their fun and bubbly wines and have been recognized both locally and internationally for them. They also offer an exceptional picnic lunch with a variety of mouthwatering platters to choose from for your group as well as charming indoor and outdoor tasting and picnicking spaces.
Vista D’Oro Farms & Winery prides itself in very traditional techniques and are dedicated to the production of unique wines made in small batches on their Langley farm. They grow their own produce on Vista D’Oro that is then used on their production and they stand out with their hand-crafted and unique walnut wine. Fresh and fabulous.
Domaine De Chaberton Winery & Bacchus Bistro is an award winning Langley Winery that sits on 55-acres of impressive property. It is the 3rd largest winery in BC and the oldest in the Fraser Valley. Guests are welcome to pack their own picnic to enjoy in their massive garden space and picnic tables out front or make reservations to dine in culinary French bistro bliss at their Bacchus Bistro. Their tour is well worth it with a walk-about through their private tasting room, their all impressive production machinary, and an up close and personal feel of their coveted Cedar Room full of fabulous wood barrels. They really allow you deep into the process.
Make time this summer for a private Langley Wine Tour! A 4-hour tour will take you to experience tastings and tour at all 4 of the wineries above and a 6-hour will allow time for a picnic or dining experience. Let us plan the day for you and take you on a wine and culinary experience to remember right in Vancouver’s backyard!
