A 2-day ticket was very good value. Liked the commentary being broadcast rather than through earphones. We appreciated the free, separate hour-long tour of Stanley Park which was included. provided a comprehensive overview of Vancouver.
I purchased tickets online for the Hop-on Hop-off bus. My husband and two young grandchildren really enjoyed the convenience and accessibility provided by this service. The bus stop was right outside our first hotel (BW Chateau Granville) and Bob our first driver was entertaining and informative. We used the bus several times over the two days and included a tour of Stanley Park. We also visited Granville Island and were happy that we did not have to look for parking in this "Tourist Mecca" I have already recommended BIG BUS to friends and may use it again in the future.
Very convenient way to get around the city. The bus stops are right near all the other tour bus stops and everyone kept trying to get on our buses because theirs didn't come as often as the hop-on hop-off. This is probably the company with the most buses coming at the most frequent times. The guides were really friendly and helpful as well. Also, you can buy tickets for other attractions from the bus driver and you'll get a discount doing it that way. We did this for the aquarium.
It worked very well for me. I was able to hop on when I got off of my cruise ship, stop at my hotel, then hop on again. It was useful the whole day as I stopped in many different sections of Vancouver and got a good overview of the city.
Once again, I was awestruck at the beauty of Vancouver. Big city but with a feel of welcoming and warmth. So many different areas, I am sure there were many that time did not allow us to see. Would return for another visit if the occasion arises.
We had a great time using Hop-on Hop-off bus, the weather was awsome for using this half open top bus, this is the best way to go around the beautiful city of Vancouver and be able to get off were you want to explore and get back in couple of hours later. The drivers were very nice and helpful. We had a wonderful experience and I highly recommend it, this is the best way of seeing the city.
It was a nice day, and trip was very convenient to where our ship docked.
Granville Island is worth to visit. Unfortunately wating time is so loooong. 15 minutes or even more for the next bus. They said September is their peak seasson.
Had a great time. Didn't use the Hop On, Hop Off to full advantage. Needed more time.
Good tour - buses sometimes very busy (but it was high season)
There are so many tour buses with the Hop-On Hop-Off theme it took us a while to find the right one. It's also called The Big Bus and The Pink Bus! After that, it was a breeze. Vancouver has so much to offer. Be sure to take the second bus in Stanley Park to see other parts the Hop-On Hop-Off doesn't offer, like the Totem Poles and Aquarium.
The Aquarium is amazing. We spent a lot of time there, then caught the bus back to within a half block of the train. Getting around Vancouver is very easy. We were there over Canada Day, so it was extra crowded, but for a couple of 80 somethings, we did well and loved it all.
I highly recommend the HOHO Bus.
This is highly recommended on your first day for you to have the experience of the city. Fun and exciting tour.
