The advertisements state a frequency of 15 to 20 minutes for the hop on hop off tour buses. We waited more than 30 minutes for the first bus which was full and then another 20 minutes for the second which was also full. One driver mentioned that a cruise ship had arrived but that cannot be an acceptable excuse for... More

We took the 12 hour Vancouver Island/Butchart Gardens/Victoria excursion. I wish I could remember our driver's name. He was OUTSTANDING. Very funny, friendly and informative. He had a couple of challenges during our trip that he overcame with complete professionalism. One challenge was at Butchart Gardens where the bus was blocked in the parking lot by other tour buses.

Fantastic day trip to Whistler. We visited Horseshoe Bay overlooking Howe Sound, then Shannon Falls & the Squamish adventure centre. Our coach driver was Andy, and he was fantastic. He gave great commentary and was very informative. He even found some bears for us to see on the trip back to Vancouver, which all the passengers thought was fantastic. They... More

We took the trip to Catalan bridge and grouse mountain. They picked us up from the hotel sharp at 10 am. The bus was comfortable and our driver/guide was quite knowledgeable.
