Hop-On Hop-Off City Attractions Tour
This hop-on, hop-off trolley tour is the easiest way to enjoy Vancouver's most popular areas: Stanley Park, Chinatown, Gastown, Granville Island and more! The tour features a live commentary so you'll have the opportunity to learn what makes this spectacular city so special.
Make sure to take time to visit Stanley Park, opened in the late 19th century and boasting over 1,000 acres of west coast evergreen rainforest. Wander about cedar, hemlock, and fir trees before enjoying the stunning views from Prospect Point. Once at Prospect Point, take in the spectacular views of Lions Gate Bridge, the North Shore's magnificent mountains, and the bustle of Vancouver's harbor below. It can safely be stated that all of Stanley Park is one great big garden. The Rose Gardens, situated just steps from the Georgia Street entrance to the park, is a true inspiration and a "must see" for garden enthusiasts as well as Vancouver's most popular destination for wedding photos. The park is also home to the famous Totem Poles, a culturally rich and visually stunning sight! The totems found here are representative of the art and society of many of B.C.'s Native Nations.
Be sure to make a stop at the bustling Granville Island while on your Vancouver tour. This peninsula and shopping district includes a stunning marina, wonderful art galleries, cute boutiques, and is perhaps best known for its Public Market. The Granville Island Public Market features colorful booths that display unique homemade good and products, perfect for that souvenir to remind you about your Vancouver tour.
Discover the thrill of space adventure as you voyage to the outer edges of the universe at the Space Center, or admire a tranquil yet vibrant expression of Ming Dynasty culture at the Dr. Sun Yat-Sen Garden in the midst of Chinatown. If you wish, enjoy time in Gastown, Vancouver's oldest neighborhood, which has earned its place among the National Historic Sites of Canada for its history, grand Victorian buildings, and thriving urban lifestyle. Explore Vancouver at your own pace on this charming and convenient trolley tour around the city.

Nostalgic busses take you on a nice city tour. Great for planning your days in Van City. You can get on or off at any stop. Informative drivers.
Reviewer: James Slakey
This tour was in a trolley and we did both Stanley Park and the city tour. Very good tour and guide. Hop off, hop on worked well since the frequency between trolleys was about 15 minutes. Only issue is the trolley is uncomfortable, seats are hard and going over bumps is a problem. Started tour right next to the cruise terminal and everything was well organized.

Great way to see beautiful Vancouver. Informative and friendly drivers. Easy to hop-off, spend as much time at the stops and then get back on another trolley.
