What You Can Expect

Vancouver City Hop-on Hop-off Tour

Canada Place

You pick the starting place for your hop-on hop-off tour from one of 24 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 or 48-hour pass 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.

There are TWO Vancouver City Hop On/Off tours This one aka West Coast Sight Seeing via Trip Advisor and a trolley tour so make sure you know which company you are purchasing.

We were in Vancouver for a week, so purchased the 2-day pass. Your first day starts when they scan your ticket or voucher. For example: We got on the bus for the first time around 12:30pm on Friday. Our voucher was scanned then and that is when our first day started, so our 24 hours lasted until 12:30pm Saturday. On Saturday, we got on the bus around 9:30am and that was still part of our first day and visited a few stops. We didn't get back onto the bus until around 4pm Saturday and that scan started our second day. And we then had 24 hours from that time, which took us into Sunday at 4pm. Seems confusing a bit, but we basically got 3 days out of the 2-day pass. What a deal!

As with all things in life, some people really enjoy their job, while others just do what they have to do to get through their shift. We rode the entire route 2.5 hrs to see all the stops, then planned our visits accordingly. Our first driver was TAZ and he was fun, friendly and you can clearly tell he enjoys his job. They offer different translation options on the bus.

Their buses are blue with green and their representative wear green shirts, so they are easy to see at the various stops along the route in case you have questions or want to purchase additional tours. The bus is both covered and has an open air option in the back. However, there is a covering for the open air part if the weather is not behaving.

We recommend this tour.

Great way to get a good orientation of Vancouver. Especially when youve been traveling all day. :-). We had no problem getting a seat on the bus but found that larger groups (like 6 or more) had difficulty finding g enough seats to be on the same bus.

Hop on Hop off tours our preference being Viator is the first thing we do when we arrive in a city. We are often tired from a long flight and it is wonderful to sit on a bus preferably double decker in comfort and see the city unfold in front of us while we listen to an overview of its history and other important information about the city. And so it was with Vancouver. We hopped off at 3 stops, had lunch at one of them, coffee at another and walked around and absorbed the flavour of each area.

Exceptional service and Courtesy, Bus drivers so knowledgeable about all of the local points of interest. A brilliant way to see the sights and a great way to be able to pick out your own personal places to visit

What a perfect way to see the various parts of Vancouver. We bought the 2 day pass which allowed us to ride multiple days. Taking in both the 'City Tour' portion and the 'Stanley Park' tour was perfect. Hop-On and Hop-Off also allowed individuals to get off and spend as much time at the stops that interested them the most. I would highly recommend this as a great way to see Vancouver.
