One of the best ways to quickly see Vancouver is taking a hop-on hop-off tour. Not only can you use the Hop-on Hop-off tours as a way to see a place, but it is also a great means of transportation for getting to and from key highlights and tourist spots in Vancouver.
In Vancouver there are a couple hop-on hop-off bus tours that give you a great tour of the city with various options to choose from.
Hop-on, hop-off buses take you to as many as 20 key spots around the city in 90 minutes to two hour loops. Stops include spots like Stanley Park, Granville Island, the Robson Street Shopping District, Chinatown, Gastown and more. You can even take a hop-on, hop-off tour in a trolley on wheels.
The tours have live guides answering your questions and giving you information along the way, stops are located close to most major hotels and the tours are designed to start from any stop. You can choose to see the city on one continuous loop or hop off to check out one attraction and then hop back on the next bus once you are done exploring.
