The tour was leisurely and saw major sites of the park. It’s misleading to say it includes “stops” at several places as it says on the website. The only stop was at the totem poles. This in itself is not a big issue, however we...More

This was fairly costly for the 1-hour carriage ride but, moving slowly, it gave us all a chance to absorb the sights, sounds, and the guide's narrative. We learned that the two horses are draft animals from Belgium and France. The French line of these...More

My family & parents thoroughly enjoyed our horse carriage tour! This is a must-do especially for first timers in Vancouver. It was great to see the star attractions in Stanley Park via this relaxing, cheerful ride. We would do this again when we come back!

You could ask if you could leave it at the booth where you pay for the ride. I think they would accommodate. I did not see any signs for scooter parking
