This was well worth the time and cost! The park tour was great and lasted about 2 hours. The city tour was 1 hour. Wonderful introduction to the city! Good way to spend a few hours when the weather is a bit cold! Bus driver was the guide and he did a great job.

I’ve been on Hop On Hop Off buses in many cities and would recommend it to everyone. It’s a GREAT way to see the city sights at your leisure.

Really enjoyed the hop on hop off buses and the evening tour. The French girl at the Blue Horizons stop who printed our tickets and told us everything about the buses was absolutely fantastic. We had a great time and highly recommend this company.

The bus driver was very informative and made it very interesting. He made the trip so worth it. There's a lot of traffic in Vancouver so I'm really glad that I did not have to drive.

Well priced and thorough. We did the entire loop and then visited areas that were highlights for us afterwards. Very comfortable clean bus with knowledgeable and courteous bus. We always do a hop on hop off bus tour when visiting a new city. aviator has never disappointed in this type of tour or others we have tried. Excellent company!!

The Green (Park) route gives you a perfect insight into the geography of Vancouver and Stanley Park. It takes about 90 minutes (without stops) and enables you to revisit parts you are interested in later.
• Submitted 03 Jul 2019
Really good. We only had limited time but we did the full round trip on both routes. Commentary was great. Helped us to get our bearings around downtown really well. Would recommend

My wife and I really enjoyed the Hop on Hop off at Vancouver. All of drivers had a great knowledge of the city. There were plenty of trolleys and a very short wait for the next ride. Vancouver is a beautiful city but make sure when you visit the city go to Stanley Park.
• Submitted 01 Oct 2018
A great way to see the highlights of the city. We did the one day park route which included the top sights. A definite must when seeing a city for the first time. The buses came often. Rarely did we have to wait for one.

The bus tour was great we saw a lot of Vancouver. We liked Stanley Park, the Chinese Gardens and just being able to look at all the sights.
• Submitted 30 Aug 2018
Great experience and perfect way to see many of Vancouver's great sights comfortably. The recorded commentary was super interesting, if not a bit comical at times. Additional commentary from bus drivers also gave insight into what it's like to live in Vancouver. Park Route has everything you'd want to see. Overall - amazing!

Super fun crossing the bridge and exploring the tree top small bridges. Cute little coffee and tea shop once crossing the bridge.
• Submitted 12 Aug 2018
Although we purchased the dual package including the city route and the park route, but we have never used the city route. The park route pretty much covers the most destinations, and we enjoyed very much !! Hop on bus is always our preferred choice to discover a new city, highly recommend.
• Submitted 08 Aug 2018
We always take the hop on bus tour upon arriving to a vacation destination, a great way to get our bearings and decide what we want to see. Guides were helpful, so much to see in Vancouver!
