Whenever we visit a city for the first time we almost always use a hop-on hop-off bus to get an intro, which this tour does quite well. It was a chilly December (for Vancouver) but the trolley was comfortable for us.Through the day we had 3 different drivers and two were very good - locals with lots of local stories... More

1) whilst charming, our guide/driver needed to focus on one or the other. An emergency stop for no reason sent people and belongings flying. He repeated some 'information' 4 times 2) we were lucky to get on the trolley late in the day. Others weren't so lucky. Having clearly waited for a long time in the rain, we stopped, only... More

Its just the worst tour I've ever hopped into. No explanation of sites, "trolley" not confortable at all ... twice the buses broke down and of course no refund for waiting more than 1 hour on cold weather .. DON NOT TAKE THIS TOUR

$45 for a 2 hr. city tour seated on a hard narrow wooden bench on a trolley with no suspension & poor heating for winter months; never again.nice route though.

I booked the tickets one month ahead but not enough seat when I first arrived at the first Trolley. Had to wait for the second one to fit all my group of 6. I was looking forward to the Van Dusen Garden Christmas lights. It turned out we would rather go there on our own instead of going with the... More

Let's talk about how this tour could be improved: 1) An app so that we could know when to expect the trolley--not wait in below freezing temperatures as the trolley is delayed 40 minutes. This technology exists--adopt it! 2) More trolleys or merge with the competitor hop on, hop off bus so that the wait time would not be 45... More

Both times we have been in Vancouver we have taken the Trolley Company's tour. It is a really good overview of the city with live narration from the driver. You can purchase tickets at many of the stops. We have purchased ours at the consierge desk at the Fairmont Waterfront. It is a rather quick tour so you just get... More

It was OK and the 1st driver was definitely better than the rest. The trolley was NEVER on time which was very aggravating as we were standing out in the freezing cold. Trolleys were consistently about 20 to 30 pluss minutes late. Dissapointed since it cost $45 per person.

It was nice having a live comment instead of a tape as many hop on hop off buses do. The driver we spent the most time with was excellent, although the other driver we spent time with was rather sparse in his comments. He also did not give us clear directions as to where we could pick up the bus... More

We had a short day in Vancouver after a long trip. Fatigue was the main reason to take the "hop on, hop off" trolley tour to get an overview of the downtown area. The Driver/Tour Guide had a thick accent and it was hard to understand him. It seemed that he spent more time on all the recent condo development... More

Neighbourhood Profile
Stanley Park
Stanley Park is Vancouver's premier spot to get up close and personal with nature and animals. The grassy expanse offers outdoor teahouses and stunning views, beachfront hideaways and splash parks. It is a typical getaway spot for friends and families, especially as it is home to Vancouver's aquarium, and some of its best equestrian outlets.
