Harrison Hot Springs Resort & Spa and Lynn Canyon Park, North Vancouver
Since 1886, travelers have sought the source that provides warmth to five mineral hot pools and inspiration for healing spa treatments. Harrison Hot Springs Resort & Spa has been welcoming guests ever since.
Lynn Canyon Park is a municipal park in the District of North Vancouver, British Columbia. The park, which officially opened in 1912 encompasses 617 acres (250 ha). The Baden-Powell Trail passes through the park crossing over the Lynn Canyon Suspension Bridge. Due to its natural landscape many TV series such as Stargate SG-1 and Stargate Atlantis used the area for filming.
The tour will include two stops. One stop will be at the Dickens Sweets & British Museum in Chilliwack where you will find a large selection of "all things British"! The other is the Canadian Hazelnut Farm which offers a wide, scrumptiously delicious choice of every kind of hazelnut you could imagine: sweet and sour, salty, chocolate-coated, spicy, and more.
Travel; accommodation (two nights at the Harrison Hot Springs Resort & Spa); two breakfasts; one Afternoon Tea; one Copper Room Dinner; sightseeing; gratuities, and door-to-door pickup will all be provided.

Salt Spring Island Apple Festival and The Tenors, Victoria
"So many apples, so little time, but take time to taste the apples along the way" Salt Spring Island was among one of the first areas in BC to grow apples (1860) and now grows over 350 varieties of organic apples. Home to the Salt Spring Island Organic Apple Co-op, Salt Spring Island is the Organic Gardening Capital of Canada.
The Tenors (formerly known as The Canadian Tenors) are a vocal quartet consisting of Remigio Pereira, Victor Micallef, Fraser Walters, and Clifton Murray. They perform operatic pop music that is a mixture of classical and popular styles, featuring songs such as "The Prayer" and Panis Angelicus from the former genre, and Leonard Cohen's Hallelujah from the latter.

Cirque du Soleil - KOOZA - under the Grand Chapiteau (Circus Tent), Concord Place, Vancouver
KOOZA tells the story of The Innocent, a melancholy loner in search of his place in the world. His journey brings him into contact with a panoply of comic characters such as the King, the Trickster, the Pickpocket, and the Obnoxious Tourist and his Bad Dog.
KOOZA is a return to the origins of Cirque du Soleil. It combines two circus traditions - acrobatic performance and the art of clowning. The show highlights the physical demands of human performance in all its splendor and fragility, presented in a colourful melange that emphasizes bold slapstick humour.
Travel including all ferry costs; accommodation (one night at the Granville Island Hotel); theatre ticket; sightseeing; and door-to-door pickup will all be provided.

Meet Me in St. Louis - Victoria Operatic Society
Meet Me in St. Louis is a classic romantic musical comedy that focuses on four sisters on the cusp of the 1904 St. Louis World's Fair. The show spotlights the sisters' education in the ways of the world, which includes, but isn't limited to, learning about life and love, courtesy of the prototypical boy next door. In the end, love - accompanied by song, dance and period costumes - conquers all.
Meet Me in St. Louis was a 1944 musical film from Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer starring Judy Garland, Margaret O'Brien, Mary Astor, Lucille Bremer, Tom Drake, Leon Ames, Marjorie Main, June Lockhart, and Joan Carroll. The film was directed by Vincente Minnelli, who met Garland on the set and later married her. It was the second-highest grossing picture of the year, only behind Going My Way.
Garland debuted the standards "The Trolley Song", "The Boy Next Door", and "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas", which all became hits after the film was released.
Travel; accommodation (two nights in downtown Victoria); theatre ticket; sightseeing; and door-to-door pickup will all be provided.
