On June 23, 2013 we had tickets for the Trolley Tour (the Big Bus competition). We wanted the narrated tour of Stanley Park. We waited for one hour hoping a trolley would show up, but one never did. We rode the city bus to Stanley Park. I highly recommend the use of city transportation, fantastic! Once at Stanley Park I happened to meet Larry, a driver for Big Bus. When we exchanged words I mentioned our terrible experience that day with Trolley Tours. Larry said, "come get on my bus". We got on the Big Bus that was running the Stanley Park route, it never left the park. The driver was great as he gave good narration, stopped for photo opportunities, and when he made a quick 10 minute stop he encouraged me to take an extra minute to drink my beer. Larry was only trying to make our day better and display that Big Bus provides a great service. He succeeded! This was a fantastic and free tour for us, of course we tipped (oh, we used the Trolley Tour ticket the next day with better, not great, success).
