Vancouver’s top sights are all mapped out for you to explore at your own pace with this hop-on hop-off trolley tour. Hop aboard a San Francisco-style trolley and listen to live commentary as you pass 34 sites, including Stanley Park, Granville Island and Gastown. Your ticket can be used over two consecutive days. Take the entire tour in 2.5 hours or hop off the trolley to sightsee, shop or dine out. For stunning city panoramas, upgrade and add entry to Vancouver Lookout at Harbour Centre.


  • Fully narrated tour
  • All taxes, fuel surcharges and service fees included
  • Multiple departure times and locations available

Board a classic turn-of-the-century trolley at any of the 34 stops and enjoy live commentary as you see Vancouver’s most noteworthy attractions. You can hop on and off as many times as you like for a 1-day or consecutive 2-day period. Buses run from morning till the early evening, giving you flexibility to discover the city at a pace that suits your schedule. In the summer, the route covers two loops, Green and Red, which are combined into one super loop during the winter. (See below for a full list of stops.)

Both routes begin at Canada Place, a convention center built for Expo ’86. The Green Route then travels through West End before winding through Stanley Park, 1,000 acres (400 hectares) of natural oasis. Inside the park, hop out at Brockton Point, fine examples of First Nation art, or at Prospect Point, the park’s highest vantage point for views of the Cascade Mountains and the green-tinged Lions Gate Bridge. After the park, the Green Route trolley swings by the English Bay and False Creek Ferries.

Prefer museums and city scenes? Then plan your day around the Red Loop. See the 19th-century buildings of Gastown, Vancouver’s historic cobblestoned district, and check out the vibrant district of Chinatown. Take a shopping break or grab a bite in the stylish district of Yaletown, full of boutiques and local eateries.

Or spend your lunch hour at Granville Island’s Public Market, where you’ll discover colorful stalls of baked goods, seafood, art and music. A walking tour of the island is included with your trolley ticket.

Optional Entry to Vancouver Lookout:

Upgrade your introduction to the city with a glass-elevator ride at Vancouver Lookout. Ascend 554 feet (169 meters) in 40 seconds and walk around the observation deck overlooking Vancouver, the ocean, the North Shore Mountains and Olympic Peninsula. Your ticket is valid for a full day so you can return in the evening to see the city illuminated at night.

Excellent way to see Vancouver to get an overall picture!
We were there at Halloween and the buses were decorated in spiders webs etc!
Friendly and informative guides.
Would highly recommend if you only have a short time in Vancouver to see the sights!
