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.

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.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2016

This is a great way to see Vancouver and get a feeling for the whole town. It was very easy to hop-off and then get back on another bus. The pick up points seemed to be well spaced around the city. You didn't need headphones for an English commentary.

The Hop-on Hop-off Bus is an excellent way to get an overview of Vancouver. Bought a 24-hour ticket and in the afternoon on the day we arrived in Vancouver, we got on the bus and just stayed on for the whole circuit. We had a very entertaining bus driver who added his own personal touch and experiences to the pre-recorded commentary. So the morning of the next day, we knew which stops we planned to 'hop-off' and explore.

We spent time in Stanley Park, visiting the Vancouver Aquarium, then walking the seawall walk for a bit over to Brockton Point where the Totem Poles are located. We spent a little time around this area and getting a few gifts from the gift shop. From there we hopped back on the bus and hopped off over on Grandville Island and spent a few hours at the Public Market sampling way too much of the goodies found out there.

After purchasing a few more gifts, we left the Public Market on Granville Island and hopped back on the bus and rode over to Canada Place were we checked out the area as we were scheduled to depart on a cruise the next day. While we were at Canada Place, we took a ride on the Fly Over Canada attraction, which was very nice. This attaction is similar to Disney's Soarin' at Epcot .

As it was the end of our 24 hour period for the Hop-on Hop-off bus, we took a leasuirely stroll back to our downtown hotel. I would recommend the Vancouver Hop-on Hop-off Bus to anyone who would like to get around Vancouver and see the sights..
