We lucked out with wonderful sunshine to visit this tourist location. It's a good 2 - 3 hr. drive East of Vancouver. On the way, we stopped at Bridal Veil Falls which is worth the stop and hike up the hill to the falls. This area is definitely a rain forest! Hell's gate is a lovely spot to have lunch... More

Decided to get out of Vancouver and see the country. We drove out to Hope, British Columbia Canada. The drive was very beautiful and scenic. The tram was reasonable and gave spectacular views going up and down. At the bottom there was a café and a gift shop. It was also very educational to learn about its history. The suspension... More

Reasonable price. Pretty view from the tram. Food in the cafe was good and affordable - try the salmon chowder. Nice little gift shop and candy store where you can get fudge. An hour was plenty of time to have lunch and see everything.

This is a wonderful adventure, great for families. You learn about the history, have an opportunity to go gold panning, try some good food, and visit their fudge store (the fudge is made on-site!)

This was my first visit since I was a child and I loved it! The tram itself is pretty tame but might scare some people with a fear of heights. The suspension bridge was scary and fantastic! You can see the river through the bridge and it's a pretty thrilling experience. I would recommend keeping your phone in your pocket!... More

We had bought a Groupon for this attraction as it sounded like it might be interesting. Didn't disappoint but it wasn't an all day adventure unless you count the drive to and from. The tram itself was fun and you saw a great view of the 'canyon'. Pretty interesting to see all of the fish too. On the other side... More
