A must do in Vancouver - we were fortunate the day we went as the clouds cleared and we had amazing views. We walked the Grouse Grind a great challenge we enjoyed but not for the faint hearted or unfit - The birds of prey show is a must do - it was amazing and the guides very informative. We also had our first grizzly bear sighting with the two rescue bears now safely residing in the park with great viewing areas of their enclosure.
very nice trip would recommend grouse mountain to everyone .nice sunny day views were great .grizzly bears were awesome 5 star all the way
Did this and Capilano Bridge in the same day. Took free bus from Vancouver to Capilano and then public transport very cheap to Grouse Mountain. Not being on an organised tour meant we were under no time pressures. Sights and activities at Grouse Mountain were great, especially the Bears who came out for a swim. Because we were not time driven we have a meal and some casual drinks at the Bistro. A great evening and then bus back to Vancouver. A really great day
Our Grouse Mountain tour was excellent! We ended up spending over 3 hours on the mountain taking in all the various 'attractions' once you are there. I highly recommend this tour and makes sure to allow adequate time for Lumberjack Show, Bird Show and taking the extra trip up the chairlift.
Ah, Grouse Mountain.......... I loved it! The tram ride was a nice visual experience, the mountain top was full of all kinds of places to walk and things to see! The views of Vancouver, far below, were wonderful! There was still some snow on the mountain, and the two bears were out and foraging for food. At every turn, there was an exciting photo to be taken!!! If you have your ticket on your phone, be advised that although we tried to go straight to the tram to have our phone tickets scanned, it did not work, and we had to go to customer service to have them issue us a paper ticket.
It was a wonderful trip the view was absolutely fantastic and the weather was good as well. There is a free shuttle bus from Canada Place which was great. Suggestion go in the morning see all the event, you will still have time to gas town near by, is walkable. We purely enjoyed.
Even though the weather was not very cooperative the tour was great. Highly recommend visiting Grouse Mountain.
A pleasant experience with all aspects of this tour very well received. Well done.
Very good day. We took the shuttle bus which is free as a part of the ticket, from Canada Place, direct to Grouse Mountain. When you get to the cable car, you have to exchange your voucher for tickets, which took about 20 minutes, because of the queue. Make sure that you get a ticket for each person, not a group ticket.
You can walk up, but you still need a ticket to go back down as you are not allowed to walk down.
The cable car was great and we also went on the chair lifts to the very top of the mountain. We saw the very entertaining lumberjack show.
We had lunch in the open air restaurant by the cable car, which was also very good.
The mountain area is very beautiful, with amazing views across to Vancouver.
There is also a bird show, which we did not watch, but saw the birds being handled by the rangers.
I think that the buses back are about every 30 minutes with the last being about 6.00pm, we left about 5.00pm.
Free shuttle offered from Canada Place waterfront every 30 minutes, taking 30 minutes to get there, and running 10/15 minutes from Grouse Mountain back to Canada Place. We booked the Peak Experience, which included the chairlift to the top. The views were amazing of Vancouver, but we were lucky with the clear day. Well organised with a small queue going in and coming back down. Lots going on at the top with a Bird Show, Lumberjack Show and the Grouse Mountain bears which we were lucky to see roaming their enclosure, and taking a dip in their pool. Great price offered by Viator, just a small problem with the voucher upon arrival at the ticket office, but soon rectified.
Wonderful tour -on our own. Great price through Viator cheaper. Would highly recommend going and spending either the whole morning or afternoon. We my 10 yr. old son and I spent 6 hours there and loved it!!!
vice nice. A little overcast but of course we have no control of the weather. Wish I had more time.
Sadly we chose a day when it was very foggy and you could not see a thing outside the cable car. Having said this when we reached the top despite it being difficult to see the two bears , both my son and l were thrilled to see them . The other shows that are put on are well presented , particularly the lumberjack show which was funny and informative and we were both amazed by the skill and talent of the performers
This was great but the weather was not kind. The mountain was in dog the whole time we were there but still managed to see and do things.

The views from the top are great, and it's lovely to be out in the mountain air. Very easy getting there via free shuttle. My hats off to everyone who did the Grouse Grind run up the mountain.

My family and I really enjoyed the activity and the mountain was beautiful with wonderful views. I rated this a 3 because the transportation was horrible. We were told that the free shuttle ran every 30 minutes on the 1/2 hour and it was extremely delayed. The last bus back into the city was at 6:30pm and no one informed us that we can get the return passes in advanced. So we ended up not getting a seat because all the seats were given out in advance. We took a cab to the ferry depot back into they city. With all the delays and back ups the shuttles had, they should have extended another bus or two to pick people up from the mountain.
We visited in mid-May, and for us the main attraction was the amazing view of Vancouver and beyond from the visitor center at top. The pair of bears now long-time residents and a short movie were so-so. We did not do any hiking or skiing of course. We thought the tram/admission pricing to be a tad steep but OK. Also, to get us there and back we purchased a transit day-pass which brought us by bus over the Lions Gate Bridge to the base of Grouse Mountain, and returned via bus and then the Ferry, which added to the enjoyable day.
This trip was great for what I wanted to see. I am afraid of heights so it took a lot of courage to get on the lift to go up. Now I was only primarily in the Bear Habitat and looking around...This would be a more fabulous place if you like the grouse grind, and hiking or running, or skiing. Since I do none of those at a more intense level. I wanted to go to one of the restaurant but end of season it was closed.
Wasn't overly impressed. The whole place was clouded out through low cloud
Unfortunately we had terrible weather - the mountain was covered in cloud, flog, mist and rain, so we didnt get to see anything very much. The lumberjack show was well done and very funny, even through the mist. we can control the weather!
