You pick the starting place for your hop-on hop-off tour from one of 29 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 in a two-week period, with buses departing every 15 to 20 minutes during peak season (May 1 – October 10) and every 60 minutes during the off-season (October 11 – April 30).
Key city attractions include the Vancouver's famous Stanley Park. From the park’s highest point, Prospect Point, you'll 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 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.
Note: The duration of the tour without stops is 90 minutes.
