When traveling on Vancouver/Victoria performance tours, you will be visiting two of the most beautiful cities on the west coast of Canada. Performing groups can either enter the country traveling through Washington State, where they begin their tour in Seattle including a visit to the Museum of Pop Culture, or by flying directly into the Vancouver International Airport (YVR).*
Tour Highlights in Vancouver Include:
- A visit to Gastown
- Dining on Robson Street
- Capilano Suspension Bridge
- Grouse Mountain Tram
- Theatre of the Sky
Victoria, the Garden Island
Beautiful and historic, Victoria is a fantastic place to visit and is in full bloom during the spring and summer! Easily accessible from Vancouver on a most popular and scenic 45 minute ferry ride, Victoria is a favorite of our students. The Victoria Day Parade and a performance on the steps of the Parliament are always memorable so when choosing dates, keep this in mind.
Groups explore and wander through the quaint downtown core with its British colonial architecture to shop, sightsee, admire heritage buildings, view the stunning floral displays and then relax over a traditional afternoon tea. Butchart Gardens – world-renowned for its 55 acres of year-round, spectacular floral displays and theme gardens is a must see too!
