About This Point Of Interest

Victoria Inner Harbour

One of the most beautiful harbours in the world, the Victoria Inner Harbour has a long and varied history. Today, it is host to many waterfront attractions, including the unmistakable Parliament Buildings, the Empress Hotel (built in 1908), and the eclectic shops of Government Street. During the summer months visitors are treated to festivals and events, and mariners are welcome to take part in any of the many boating races that take place here. Christmas time is also a highlight when the buildings and boats of the Victoria Inner Harbour light up in a festive display of holiday spirit.

Hop-On With Us



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.
