You might be interested in reading a recent post here entitled "A Fools Report of Vancouver" - the title is a bit tongue-in-cheek. It gives Daniel's first hand account of his Vancouver experience and perhaps you'll want to replicate some of the sights and places he visited. In the meantime, regarding your tour guide question, please check out the following website

Enjoy your visit to Vancouver!

Oops - my reference to another poster's trip report should read: "A Fool Visits Vancouver 1"

Great suggestion. Actually it was a series of threads, all very interesting.

Thanks. Those look interesting - will read through in detail.

They don't seem to talk much about tours so still wondering about best way to book a few 1/2 day tours in the area.

I don't know what kind of tours you are interested in or how long you have. I always recommend starting with the trolley tour of Vancouver. You can hop on and off at any point or just stay on and decide on what you may want to go back and spend more time at. The offer other tours as well. Their website is
http://www.vancouvertrolley.com/ if you check that out it may give you a better idea. You can also book on line.
