As a long time resident of Vancouver, I was so pleased to see that a cycling tour of some of the public art was on offer. The tour leader was clear, informative and very knowledgeable. We visited quite a few art sites and it was most enjoyable to cycle from place to place. A must do for Vancouverites and for... More

This was a unique and most interesting way to experience some of Vancouver's public art. I would bet thousands of people pass by these pieces every day without much thought; but taking time to have the history and creation of the art explained made for a delightful 2 (Ok, 2 1/2 )hours. Our guides were very engaging, well researched and... More

I'm visiting from out of town this week and wanted to find a unique way to explore the city. After reading the reviews for Art Wheelers, I thought it would definitely offer a different activity for an evening. You'll learn about public art around Vancouver, and if you're not from the Van, you'll also find out more about city. The... More

As someone who cycles in Vancouver regularly, I often ride by or near many of the places this tour stopped, and have rarely paid any attention to the public art nearby. The guides were very well-versed not only in the origins of the art but a lot of the urban issues surrounding them, and had a lot of insight on... More

Went with a couple of friends on a balmy Wednesday night and thoroughly enjoyed the professional, safe guidance of knowledgeable Astrid. Came back with more things to notice and enjoy when I next pedal around the seawall on my own, or guiding my visitors. Recommended, very enjoyable.

I'm a local and decided to check this tour out after reading about it in the paper. I love going on bike tours when I'm abroad so I thought this would be a really great activity to do at home. Unlike many Vancouverites, I'm not entirely confident on a bike, but this tour sticks to the seawall which made it... More

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... More

My wonderful friend surprised me with this tour as part of my birthday evening out. I am so glad she did! I was a tourist in my own town as I had never been along this route and had never even noticed some of the amazing art sculptures and displays before while driving by. It was a beautiful evening, an... More

A bike tour is a great way to see a selection of Vancouver's impressive outdoor art installations which one tends to overlook when travelling by car. The pace was gentle, the seawall bike paths are lovely and our guide Carol Ann was highly informative and willing to take the time to answer all sorts of questions. The tour is suitable... More

I have never been a big cyclist, but in the last few years I have learned that the best way to see a city is by bike. A friend told me about the Art Wheelers tour and so I decided to check it out last summer in its inaugural year. The tour leader, Rosemary, was extremely knowledgeable. Although the focus... More

Staying in Downtown

Neighborhood Profile
Downtown
Vancouver's business district, the Downtown area is bustling with smartly-dressed folks balancing their lattes and briefcases to and from work. The area's plethora of contemporary commercial, residential, and corporate spaces has bred a landscape of nouveau restaurants, chain cafes, and upmarket shopping options. However, located right on the waterfront of Vancouver's energetic Harbour, Downtown is a also popular public meeting spot, with a massive public library and convention center attracting a bevy of visitors both local and not, as well as a hotspot for the arts, being home to some of Vancouver's most cutting-edge galleries. With behemoth architecture and a professional air, Downtown means business.
