The whole experience was memorable. Gondola ride to top has incredible views. Lots to do or just walking and viewing Vancouver below is wonderful. We had a table right at the window. Wine was great and not over priced. My husband and I both had...More

Hi We are visiting Vancouver 1st - 5 June 2017 wanting to visit Grouse Mountain,and have dinner at the peak. Do you need bookings and if so how far in advance should we book??

Yes there is a shuttle bus from DT. Make reservations ahead of time, maybe 2 weeks to 1 month ahead of time. If you have dinner at the Peak it will include the gondola fee so make sure you look that up when you make... More

Hi Yes I am sure they will cater for kids.
Hi,please I need a piece of information about the observatory restaurant,I was thinking to get there next week but given that I'm getting to Grouse Mountain around 6.00pm I was wondering,I read last skyride is at 10.00,so what if I finish to dine after this time?Can be that possible?I suppose so since they get reservations until 11:00 PM.Thanks in advance to those who will give me an answer.
