What You Can Expect

Vancouver City Hop-on Hop-off Tour

Canada Place

You pick the starting place for your hop-on hop-off tour from one of 24 key stops in Vancouver -- such as Gastown, the Robson Shopping District, or Chinatown. You can get on and off the open-top bus as often as you like to see the highlights of Vancouver at your own pace. Use your 24-hour or 48-hour pass in a two-week period, with buses departing every 15 to 20 minutes during peak season (May 1 – October 10) and every 60 minutes during the off-season (October 11 – April 30).

Key city attractions include the Vancouver's famous Stanley Park. From the park’s highest point, Prospect Point, you'll have great views of the Cascade Mountains and Lions Gate Bridge. Admire the exquisitely carved First Nation totem poles, the most visited monuments in British Columbia, at Brockton Point. If you have time in your custom itinerary, hop off the bus at spot in the park where you can take a horse-drawn carriage ride (weather permitting).

If you're in the mood for some shopping, consider getting off the open-top bus at Robson Street, with tiny boutiques and big brand-name stores to browse. For a bite to eat, check out the array of food stalls at Granville Island’s Public Market.

You have two options for relaxing on Vancouver's beaches when you're ready for a break from sightseeing: The bus stops at Stanley Park’s Second Beach, which has an outdoor pool and great views along the park’s Seawall, as well as English Bay Beach, a popular stretch of sand in this coastal seaport city.

Note: The duration of the tour without stops is 90 minutes.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended May 2016

Excellent experience, highly recommend this company after researching many options. Took advantage of the free option to ride a tiny boat back to our hotel in Yaletown from the Granville Island stop. You can also do so on the trip over to Granville. The ride was a bit chilly since the weather hadn't warmed up, so be ready with a coat in the chillier months.

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 had a great time on your Hop-on Hop-off Tour. We got the 2 day pass before we went on our cruise and it really worked out great for us.

Chris H

5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2015

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.
