Best of British Columbia Tour

As a top destination in North America this is a great standalone tour or add-on to the Global Leadership Academy experience. Victoria and Vancouver have so much to see it will easily impress even the most traveled tourist. Victoria is a breathtaking city with so much to see, do and eat. From whale watching on the open ocean, to meeting with first nation artisans, to feeding friendly harbor seals, Victoria offers a unique crossroads of cultures. We then proceed to visit Vancouver City exploring everywhere from the artistic and fascinating Granville Island to the vast and beautiful Stanley Park. Vancouver was ranked as the #1 best city to visit by US News for a reason!
