Trip Report Tea at the Empress is a rip-off & other Vancouver comments

Jump to last reply

Just returned from a lovely trip. There is lots to see and do. the Museum of Anthropology is worth the trip. Nothing like it anywhere else. Van Dusen Gardens is very accessible and had a great exhibit and sale of Zimbabwe sculptures.
Public transport is good.
The tourist office sells discounted entrance tickets. There is a free shuttle to Capilano Bridge in front of the office.
Food seems more expensive than other cities. DO NOT eat at Society(Yaletown)= tapas sizes at main course prices.
Used West Coast Sightseeing to Vancouver Is. They did a great job and since there were only 2 couples on the trip we got extra time at the Butchart Gardens. Not to be missed!
However dont waste your money with tea at the Empress. They dont even serve lemon curd. It was huge disappointment. Butchart Gardens does tea and it looked lovely.
