What You Can Expect

Vancouver City Hop-on Hop-off Tour

Canada Place

Start your hop-on hop-off tour in Gastown near the Steam Clock, or at any of the other 22 stops on the route. As the open-top, double-decker bus transports you around town, hop on and off as many times as you like to see the best of Vancouver at your own pace (full tour duration without stops is 90 minutes). Your 1- or 2-day pass is valid within a two-week period, with buses departing every 15 to 20 minutes during peak season (March 15 – October 15) and every 30 to 45 minutes during the off-season (October 16 – March 14).

Admire the white sails of Canada Place, a convention center built for Expo ’86, and then take time to discover Stanley Park, bounded on three sides by water. From Prospect Point, the park’s highest point, snap memorable shots of the Cascade Mountains and the Lions Gate Bridge. At Brockton Point, gaze at the exquisitely carved First Nation totem poles, the most visited monuments in British Columbia. Or, hop off at a spot in the park offering rides by horse-drawn carriage.

In need of retail therapy? Get off at Robson Street, which has everything from big-brand stores to indie boutiques. When you want to grab a bite to eat, the dizzying array of food stalls at Granville Island’s Public Market is sure to satisfy your cravings.

Take a break from sightseeing and enjoy an afternoon on the beach. The bus stops at Stanley Park’s Second Beach, which boasts an outdoor pool in addition to fantastic views along the park’s Seawall. Or, lounge on English Bay Beach, the most popular stretch of sand in the coastal seaport city.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended November 2015

I was traveling with my twins from back east and we all had a wonderful time.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2015

Being new to Vancouver, this tour gave us the overview we needed to become familiar with the city and its many charms. We hopped on and off several times, and were treated to a wide variety of drivers and the ways they approached the tour. All were cheerful and informative, adding to the great experiences waiting around the city. This turned out to be the best possible way to get introduced to a new place. It made us feel like we knew what we were doing by the end of the day without the worry of having to figure it out for ourselves. If you have a full day to spend in Vancouver for the first time, you really can't go wrong with this tour.

We always use a 'Hop on Hop off' bus tour to orientate ourselves to a new city. This tour did not disappoint. The commentary was very good if a bit loud. It was easy to get on and off and the 2 day ticket worked well.
