Everyone working for the tour company was extremely helpful, courteous and knowledgeable. There were plenty of sights to keep us occupied for the two day tour we booked.

Best deal in town! Driver was courteous and entertaining! My kids learned a lot about down town Vancouver and enjoyed the sights! Liked the fact that you can hop on and off 32 different locations. Stanley Park and the aquarium are beautiful! I am definitely going to do this again!

This is the way to see Vancouver! It takes you all around the city to all of the places you want to see. I didn't realize there is a city and a park tour bus so when I got on I got on the city tour. This was great it was a good way to get acquainted with Vancouver and really get my barrings. Granville island is a must! The market alone I could have wandered in for hours! Stanley park was incredible and there is so much to do. It is really easy to catch the trolley there are signs everywhere. All of the trolley drivers I had were very knowledgeable and every one of them had there own stories and highlights. The aquarium was fantastic I really enjoyed seeing all of the animals. They have more than just fish! I did not make it to the lookout. It rained a lot when I was there and I really wanted to go on a clear day. I figure it's just something to look forward to the next time I go. I would suggest this to anyone and I would buying it again for myself. Great investment!

This is a great tour for people who only have a couple days in Vancouver. We stayed on the trolley the first day and on the second day got off at the stops we wanted to see more of. The Trolley drivers were very informative and friendly and very helpful to find our way through the city. We would recommend this to everyone.

We did not end up using the Hop on Hop Off because we thought it would run later to see the Observation deck at night. The Aquarium and observation deck were both very nice and Vancouver we fell in love with.
