Vancouver Trolley Tour Excursion Reviews

With a Vancouver trolley tour, visitors can choose to see the sights completely from the comfort of the trolley or they can enjoy a hop on/hop off experience that will allow them to explore the sights and areas they're more interested in on foot.

After booking an overbooked hop on, hop off, graciously refunded, we found a trolley hop on hop off. The driver was an absolute horror. One of the guests actually ask him when he was going to start the narration. He showed us 4 hotels??? Finally we arrived at Stanley park and he did do a narrative..sort of. Vancouver has so much to offer that we didn't get to see. Had a better tour on our last Alaskan Cruise by the bus driver taking us to the airport. Read Less

We stayed one night in Vancouver with a late flight home so we got to enjoy two days in the city. We stayed at the St Regis Hotel. It’s centrally located with easy access all over downtown Vancouver. The service at the St Regis is excellent and a made-to-order breakfast is included. The rooms were a little small and the queen-sized bed is really more of a full-sized bed but the room was very nice and comfortable. We walked from Canada Place, which I would not do again. I’d definitely take a taxi. It’s a short 10 minute walk but it’s uphill and when you are hauling luggage, it’s a hike. But it’s an easy walk without luggage. We did the Trolley Company hop on/hop off bus since tickets were sold at the hotel (entire city route) then took the green route and walked around Stanley Park, used our free ferry coupon to go to Granville Island, hopping back on the city route bus. We lucked out and had excellent weather the first day. The next day we did the Fly Over Canada at Canada Place. It’s worth doing once but I thought the tickets were a little pricey for the short ride (I think it was $27 Canadian-I forgot to use my 10% off coupon from the hop on/off bus). It’s very similar to Soarin’ Over California in California Adventure. Since it was raining cats and dogs, it was a good, indoor activity. We bought some souvenirs in Gastown (using the 10% off coupon from the hop on/off bus at Michelle’s) then had lunch at the Flying Pig (which we really enjoyed) and left for the airport. The taxi there was $35 Canadian. Read Less

Brewery, winery and distillery! Great town. Only complaint was we wasted over an hour waiting for a trolley at Granville Island because they were all full.

We spent most of our time in two locations: Rose Gardens and Aquarium and then simply rode the trolley to see the remainder of the stops. It definitely could fill 2 days which we did not have, sadly.

Our hotel's concierge recommended this to us. We would not do it again on a busy weekend. We were told the wait to get on a bus would only be 15 mins but it ended up being over an hour. Next time, would tour the city by taxi.

We decided to take the red Vancouver hop on, hop off trolley. The trolley starts at Canada Place so it was an easy walk there from the Auberge Vancouver Hotel. There is also a blue hop on, hop off bus run by Grayline. The trolley has two routes, a Stanley Park route and a City route. Your tickets are good on both routes for the day. The back part of the blue buses has no roof. We were very glad we were riding on the trolley where every seat was under a roof because the sun was bright and hot. Tickets to the trolley are sold by people wearing red and standing on the sidewalk. There is a ticket booth that sells tickets to the blue bus but not the red trolley. The weekends are very busy for both these tours with cruise ships coming in and departing. We got on our trolley around 10:30am and it was full. Even though it is a hop on/hop off bus, we decided not to get off. There were several stops the trolley made where people wanted to get on but couldn’t because we were already full. We did eventually get off at the False Creek stop to take the False Creek Ferry to Granville Island. When you buy your trolley ticket you get a free coupon for the ferry. We ate lunch on Granville Island at the Vancouver Fish Company. We sat outside and had another good, but expensive, meal. The beer they serve at the Vancouver Fish Company is from the Granville Island Brewery. To return, you just have to walk a couple of blocks over a bridge to the mainland and pick up the trolley on the City route. By this time it was around 4pm or so and there was no problem getting seats on this trolley. We saw more of the city on this route and finally got off at Canada Place. Read Less
