This was great and I loved the lookout. It pretty much took us everywhere.Driver very good and nice coach.
Really enjoyed this tour, provides a great overview of the city so that you can decide what you want to do for the rest of your stay. Wished we had a little more time in Granville Island. While the Vancouver Lookout at the end was nice, we had a nice hotel view anyways so would skip it myself.

Great way to see Vancouver when you have limited time. We did the 2-day tour. One day in the city and one in the parks. We also went to the aquarium which we enjoyed and the Lookout Observation Deck. Vancouver is a beautiful city with wonderful parks that have so many things to do in them. We had wonderful weather. No rain!!
We got to see everything we wanted to see and some things we didn't even know existed. The aquarium was great, with the beluga whales the absolute highlight of that excursion. The Lookout observation deck gave us an excellent all round view of Vancouver. The drivers were very friendly and extremely knowledgeable, sometimes going out of their way to make the experience extra special like pulling over and taking pictures of my partner and myself standing in a tree hundreds of years old, or of us hugging a huge ancient tree along our route. Overall a wonderful 2 days with wondrous experiences and excellent guides. They also have great tips on places to dine.
Recommend this tour...you can visit all Vancouver...city and Stanley park. Aquarium and Lookout are great. Trolleys were easy to catch, drivers friendly and informative. Best way to get around to all the sights.
A lot of fun with great narration! 2 different routes - park and city. Loved the Rose Garden, Aquarium and Lookout!
This is a great way for an overview of the city. We saw the most important parts and ended at the Lookout Tower where we could see almost all of our trip within the city. Our guide Juan was fine and he knows his city. Being picked up and dropped off at our hotel was very nice. Going to Granville in this way saves a headache in looking for parking.

I booked this tour because it said that it would be perfect if you're for the first time in Vancouver - and yeah, the tour keeps its promises. It gave an amazing overview about the Downtown area in the end I was even a little overwhelmed by all the information and impressions. Andy was an excellent and very knowledgable guide thank you very much again!. The ticket for the Vancouver lookout was also a daily ticket, so I could return at night beautiful!.
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!

Raining on the first day,bus a bit leaky. Enjoyed the visit to the Aquarium. Many fish and aquatic animals to see. Can see the Beluga whales from below as too wet outside. Next day on the bus not wet saw a lot more good loop of Dowwntown Vancouver visited the Lookout great views. Well worth the tour and very good value
Well worth the cost of the tickets. My 11 year old granddaughter and I enjoyed the sightseeing. The Vancouver Aquarium and Lookout Observation Deck are must see attractions in Vancouver. We made several stops during the two days including Chinatown, Gastown, Canada Place, and the Granville Island not too mention their beautiful Stanley Park.
Great tour, very good guide, knew the city very well. Stanley park is outstanding, the lookout tower provides an excellent view of the city with a fun outdoor elevator ride.
Arrived at The Lookout and was quickly issued with my ticket, which allowed multiple access the same day.
I went up at 10am, and it was very quiet (weekday). Stunning views of the city, clean, and was nice to sit and take in this beautiful city.
Went back in the evening for a different view.

This was excellent to give us an overview of Vancouver. We ended up doing the trolley on 7th and 8th instead of the 8th and 9th as we had originally booked and there were no problems at all changing dates. We also did the Lookout Observation deck on the 7th and didn't find out till we got there that they were closing early. Again no problem, we went up during the day on the 7th and were able to go up at night on 8th whereas usually it is one day only. We loved the aquarium. We also loved the little ferry ride from Granville Island which we got free by using the coupon book which came with the trolley ticket.
This is a great way of seeing Vancouver and the guides are full of history of the area. We loved it. We went to Stanley Park and saw the gardens and the aquarium. We spent some time in Gastown which was fun. We went to the Lookout Observation Deck and saw Vancouver from every angle. The bus went through Chinatown which is really neat. This is the best way to see Vancouver and learn about its history. Each driver has his\her own style which makes it very interesting too.
The Hop-On Hop-Off Bus tour was great. I was able to see all of Vancouver and get great insider tips from the tour guides. My trip also included the Aquarium and the Lookout tower. Both were great sites to see.
We spent a rainy September morning strolling round Vancouver aquarium. It has a wide variety of fish and sea mammals and some beautiful displays of jellyfish. There is a 4D showing of Planet Earth which is great fun, educational but with added bubbles! We spent ages watching the sea otters which are so cute and entertaining! The Vancouver lookout is worth a visit, unfortunately it was a bit gray and miserable when we went up, but your ticket is valid for a day and night visit and there are great views of Vancouver. The Hop-on hop-off trolley tour was good. It offered a bus from each stop every 10 minutes. It was slightly let down by some of the drivers who's live commentary was a bit lacking, however it serves all the major tourist sights. If you get a good commentary it is worth staying on and completing the loop to listen to it as the next driver may not be so good. There are two lines and your ticket is valid for two days for both. We really did need two days! I would recommend stopping at Dr Sun Yat Sen's Chinese garden and the Vancouver police museum. When we exchanged our voucher for our tour tickets they actually gave us free entry to either attraction which was a nice bonus! Overall a great package which I would recommend.
This is good for all ages. It was great to be able to get on and off the trolley all day. That made it easier to explore different areas or just to see them if we didn't want to get off. The view from the lookout tower was amazing. The aquarium is cool: you can see above and below the tanks. There were lots of different areas to see. There are shows throughout the day. The whole tour was well worth it.
Lookout is not as tall and big as CN Tower in Toronto but still good place to view city from high up. I liked idea of buying ticket allows me to go up all day because wanted to view city day and night time.
There were enough information displays inside to give interesting history of city.
Lower level of tower has many shops and if that's not enough the location is close to many other site seeing places like Canada place, Stanley Park and Gasstown. I did not deal with lineups but as any other tourist location there is always a chance you might have to wait for a bit before going up.

Drivers/Guides were knowledgeable and full of information. Pickups were on time and predictable. Our Trolley/Lookout/Aquarium package was a great value and very enjoyable. Vancouver is a beautiful city and everyone was helpful and kind.
Some of the drivers were not as friendly but for the most part, they were interesting, funny and friendly. The information was interesting and the trolleys came at good intervals. The Aquarium was fun, I really loved the snakes! The Beluga whale program was very fun to watch. The lookout deck was an excellent view of the city.
The Trolley Bus provided us with good transportation but frequency of buses can be improved for the crowd on Saturdays during Summer. Enjoy beautiful sunset at Lookout Observation Deck, had a great time watching the beluga show and, 4 D show in Vancouver Aquarium
Heather failed to give us our Lookout Observation Deck tickets, so we were inconvenienced the second day trying to get them. The trolley operator didn't seem to believe we had never received them, had to call a supervisor, holding up everyone on the trolley for 15 minutes. Trolleys ran very late and way too full, leaving unhappy people at some stops. Recommend adding trolleys for peak season.
