There is a city and a park route. I bought the 48 hour pass with the boat tour and night tour included. This was ample time to take both tours and hop off and on as we wished. We got off at Stanley Park and wales around for a couple of hours and rejoined the tour a few stops down. We also got off at Granville island and walked around the market and food market - this is well worth getting off for. The city tour takes in China town, Gastown and passes various sports stadiums which is great. The boat tour was quite so we were very lucky to have an exclusive tour for me and my daughter which was great! These tours are a great way to see Vancouver. The e-boat tour is highly recommended to see the city from a different angle - you may even be lucky enough to see the see planes take off and land while you are on the water
The first day our driver named Meenu was exceptional because she clearly spoke about all the relevant sights as well as public art. She was very informative. On our second day the driver did not talk much, preferring to run a recorded version of sightseeing highlights. The bus was running behind schedule on this day. When he dropped us off at Stanley Park he said the next bus would pick up in one hour. Unfortunately, the next bus was on schedule and came by 40 minutes later, which caused us to miss it. We had to wait an hour for the next pickup. It’s unfortunate that they did not communicate this to us.
The route was great, it provided coverage to all the major Vancouver attractions and communities. The bus on the first day was very comfortable; second day, the weather was rainy and cold yet the bus had only temporary plastic window coverings. The back of the bus was wide open to the elements. It was damp and cold on the bus.
Driver/guides were variable. One or two were great. They had good knowledge, a little humour and were easy to understand. Others were both silent and miserable.
really great way to see the city. i recommend doing both city and park route. bus comes often
