Overview

Customize your sightseeing tour of vibrant Vancouver with multiple pass options for a hop-on hop-off tour aboard a clear-top bus. Let someone else drive you around town, and choose when to disembark at any of the stops, such as Chinatown, Stanley Park, and Gastown. Choose between the City Route or the Park Route, or the Dual Pass if you'd like to do both. Explore historical landmarks and shop along Robson Street at your own pace.
  • Vancouver city sightseeing hop-on hop-off tour
  • Enjoy the city’s most popular attractions on an open-top bus
  • Hop off at any of the stops, including Stanley Park, Yaletown, Canada Place, beaches and more
  • Learn about Vancouver’s sites and history from the onboard commentary
You pick the starting place for your hop-on hop-off tour from one of the 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 ticket in a two-week period, with buses departing regularly.

Key city attractions including Vancouver's famous Stanley Park. From the park’s highest point, Prospect Point, you 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 a 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.

Great overview of city and parks

This was well worth the time and cost! The park tour was great and lasted about 2 hours. The city tour was 1 hour. Wonderful introduction to the city! Good way to spend a few hours when the weather is a bit cold! Bus driver was the guide and he did a great job.

Not worth the price

I should have booked this tour with the Land and Sea Adventure after seeing their bus and having done a tour with them the day prior. This experience on this Hop On and Off was underwhelming to say the least. We had one friendly driver, but the other one really is in the wrong business unfortunately. He talked over the recorded tour that was playing so you couldn't understand either of the details. Was more on the grumpy side, than pleasant. Bus itself needed LOTS of updates, very old and outdated and even had some areas where the rain was seeping in. Very disappointed in the quality of the service provided.

Don't waste your money

This was total waste of $76 .... Bus was old and noisy to the point you can't even hear yourself, let alone the driver or recording. Bus just does the short bus loop around the city that you can do on FREE shuttle bus. Driver tried to give a few comments along the way but we couldn't understand a word he was saying, he also put on pre-recorded narration at wrong points of the trip. Horrible experience, not worth to be on Viator

Bus full to capacity and couldn't pick up passengers from Hop-On locations.

The line at the Canada Place was long and the wait for a bus was over an hour. Once on the bus, the bus was full to capacity and was not able to pick up any passengers waiting at various Hop-On locations. The passengers which were waiting at other Hop-On locations had been waiting over an hour for a bus to have room on it to pick them up. We didn't get off the bus for fear we wouldn't be able to get back on as the buses were full to capacity and were not picking up passengers from the other various Hop-On locations. The Hop-On Hop-Off tour was a waste of money and we weren't able to hop-off to see any of the attractions because there was no guarantee you'd be able to Hop-On because there was no room on the buses.

Best way to explore the city on a short visit. Really enjoyed Stanley Park and Granville Island. The complimentary ferry hop over to Granville Island was much appreciated.

We enjoyed it. It was informative and a good way to see the city. We were short on time so we only did the city tour. Next time we’ll take the park tour.

Long waits

Depending on time of day it can mean long waits for bus. Around 10 am is a time to avoid. Enjoyment dependant on driver can either excellent to very mediocre.

Busses mostly crowded, or already full. Digital audio did not work in all busses. Route is very interesting, stations on good places.

I did both tours- the city and the park tour. On the park tour, Lynn was the driver and she told us a lot of stories and background informations regarding the different parts of the tour. That was great and such a personal addition to the voice from the recorder.
