Traveler Reviews

This was perfect way of seeing Vancouver for us. We boarded the bus at Stop 1 in Gastown. My husband has Parkinson's Disease and uses a walker. The bus drivers were all very accommodating in helping to get the walker on and off the bus. The drivers were also very well informed about the various sites along the way, with many little humourous tales to tell. We only got off the bus at Grenville Island and Stanley Park, taking the extra opportunities at each to explore the areas more (the ferry across False Creek and the Pink Bus tour of the park). We spent 6 hours of the day with the Hop On, Hop Off tour and considered it worth every cent of the senior's fare. I just wish our bodies could have handled more 'hopping off' to explore more. Thanks for a great visit to Vancouver. It was the highlight of our holiday.

Used this extensively to see and learn about this great city. All of the drivers were helpful and pleasant, they went out of their way to provide great customer service. We used the 2 day service and it was more than worth it.
