Explore At Your Own Pace

Hop-On With Us

Open-Top-and-Trolley-web

If you prefer to move at your own pace we have you covered. Our Hop-On our Hop-on, Hop-off takes you through Stanley Park. Hop-Off at Stop #4 (Stanley Park) to go straight there, or Hop-Off at Stops #2 get there via a walk along the seawall into the park. It's your adventure, on your time.

Variety is the spice of life, so for each of our Hop-on Hop-off tours we dish it up and you get to choose. We operate two types of vehicles, and while both buses travel the same routes, each offers a very different tour experience. Of course, we suggest you take the time to enjoy both, but we won't make you. Channelling the spirit of San Francisco, our Trolley's will have you ready for a jolly time. The driver will provide you with live commentary of your tour, lending a local's authentic take on the magic that makes Vancouver great. But as fun as our trolley tours are, our clear-top buses are equally special. Your view of the city will be like no other as you tour the streets with the wind in your hair, experiencing our vibrant downtown with all of your senses. You will be accompanied by a recorded commentary that is available in multiple languages.
