Stanley Park Horse-Drawn Tours
Discover the natural beauty of Vancouver’s Stanley Park aboard a horse-drawn carriage on this charming 1-hour tour. Sit back and relax as your trusty steed clops along Park Drive overlooking the Seawall. An informative guide shares engaging commentary on the sights, including the Rose Garden, Girl in a Wetsuit Statue and the famous First Nations totem poles. Snap memorable photos of Vancouver and the Lion’s Gate Bridge. It’s a great way to experience the fresh air of Stanley Park without tiring your feet!
What to Expect
The touring carriages depart from the newly built and custom-designed departure station right next to the information booth for Stanley Park, overlooking Coal Harbour and the downtown core of the city of Vancouver, British Columbia.

The friendly and knowledgeable guide narrates the tour while traveling along Park Drive, overlooking the Seawall and the ocean. Go past the Royal Vancouver Yacht Club and Deadman's Island, also known as the HMCS Discovery, a Royal Canadian Navy Reserve. The ride includes a 5-minute stop at the famous totem poles. Feel free to get out and capture some great photos of this popular site.

Note: Please return to the same carriage to continue the tour.

The next stop is at the famous Girl in a Wetsuit Statue and the Empress of Japan Figurehead. Then the ride continues on the north side of Stanley Park with views towards North Vancouver and the Lions Gate Bridge, a suspension bridge that crosses the first narrows of Burred Inlet, connecting the City of Vancouver.

Annoying disinterested young children marred tour

Went on this tour 6 years ago and it was excellent. This time two young children, one moaning there was something wrong with the electronic game they were playing, badly affected the enjoyment for all. In particular it dampened the enthusiasm of the guide who...More

Decent Trip

The horse ride is what you expect, and it's a good ride. The driver gave a lot of facts to us, but at least one was misrepresented (engineering iron rings were not made from the steel beam from the bridge), but it was enjoyable. Other...More

Pleasant tour through eastern Stanley Park

After reading recent reviews we were uncertain how good this tour would be. It met our expectations and we enjoyed it. Tour was at 1:45 on a Saturday. We had some traffic in the park but it did not affect the tour. We were 1/2...More

Not What We Expected.

We thought this would be a relaxing way to see Stanley Park. We tried to buy tickets ahead of time and were told they don't do that. So we stood in line for 30 minutes to buy tickets for a ride 45 minutes in the...More

Fun Group Activity .... Excellent tour guide..... Good sights

The tour guide was very prepared and knowledgeable of the Park and the area surrounding. The group of 7 of us all enjoyed the sights pointed out and the centrality of the tour allowed for us to explore other sights in Stanley Park.

Thank Joel K

It's best to take the Stanley Park city bus to get there. You go south from the Aquarium. You can buy your tickets at the kiosk. As they only take about 30 passengers per trip you may have to wait for the next tour. It's a... More

Yes, you can get tickets there at a booth just inside the park entrance. We paid $42.00 (senior rate) each. And you get on right there. They stop once at the totem poles for you to get off. Very slow pace so easy to take... More
