This was a great deal! All three are totally worth seeing and purchasing them together saved me money!
Everyone was very helpful. Most of my time was spent in Stanley Park and it was fantastic. The observation tower was very good also.
The guides were excellent and very well informed about the stops along the way. We found the 'Blue' line a little boring for us. We found the 'Red Line' much more entertaining. We did not get a chance to stop at all the 'stops' on the redline which we are sorry about. We actually went to the Aquarium twice because we found it so entertaining. We did stop at the Tea House but were not allowed in because they were closing for a wedding reception. I think that the guides should have a schedule indicating this so that people do not get off the trolley and waste their time. We waisted over an hour because the next trolley that came along was full so we had to wait for the next one. We would recommend this for tourists as it allows you to see the spots of interest at a glance and they can decide what would interest them and the next time around they can get off at the spots they want to see.

Very surprised to see just how easy it was to get a great view of all the marine life and shows
Good trip, great guides. I would not use this as transportation though. You have to wait a long time for the trolly to come.
Good way to spend the day. You can see the city from the comfort of a trolley and the Aquarium is fantastic.
Don't miss the hop off to catch the little ferry boat to Granville Island. Can't say I'm a market person but it was well worth seeing - great fruit, vegetable and cake stalls!
A great way to see the whole downtown. It would have been nicer if they have longer operating hours.
The hop-on hop-off option gave us plenty of flexibiity to do what we wanted, when we wanted and at our own pace (within their operation times). We were unfortunate that the company decided to go to winter timetable 1 week earlier than scheduled. This left us with only 6 hrs/day use.
Convenient with booking online, some discount with previous bookings, saving time. The info given online should be more detailed, e.g. 2 tours - 2 directions, clients should prepare time for both of them. The last bus is around 4:15pm; the info online is confusing, I thought it was around 6pm. In the summer the hour should be extended especially when the weather is too hot; it would be more comfortable if we can take the tour in the late afternoon.
Really disappointed with this tour. They never ran on time, directions for the pickup point at Granville Island after getting off the red line were no existent and it was really hard to find. One of the drivers was difficult to understand. It was a shame as Vancouver is a beautiful city and we had a 2 day ticket and gave up after half a day.
Generally we love these hop on/off tours, but this one was always off schedule and slow. sometimes we'd wait 45 minutes at stops. It only went in one direction thus on our 2nd day-since we'd seen the first 1/2 or stops-it would have been 1:45 on trolley to get to 2nd half and if they were running behind as they always seemed to be-it would have been more like 2 hrs.... We chose to take a cab and and then take trolley back. Too long between stops and needs reverse trolley! Drivers great!
Very confusing - two runs red and blue line - no one explained the two and took us most of our time in Vancouver to figure out how tour worked.
The trolley itself is a glorified hotel bus as most of the stops are just picking up or dropping off at various hotels around the city. Most of the sights could have been seen by public transport or on foot. The lookout is a little dated and needs a bit of an overhaul. Stanley Park is beautiful and interesting. The aquarium is very limited and the layout is poorly sign posted and confusing. The baby beluga whale was the highlight, the rest of the exhibits are small and a little tired looking.
