Great way to get an overview of Vancouver! The best bus was with an actual guide. Our guide was "Dan", he talked about everything in the city. I assume to be safe there was also a driver to stay focused on the road. Dan gave us so much more than the audio recordings on the other buses. Try to get his bus if you go!

The driver and tour guide were both very good. The tour guide was both very knowledgeable and entertaining and made the tour very interesting. Capilano suspension bridge park was amazing. The driver got us to the airport for an international flight with plenty of time to spare. Great way to end our cruise holiday.

Fantastic tour would recommend this to anyone. The cycling is not too challenging so would suit all abilities. Our guide Cameron was so knowledgable and we found out so many interesting facts that we would never have discovered on our own.

Excellent way to travel around the sights of Vancouver. Thoroughly recommend, particularly the commentary.

Fabulous day out. A great way to see the city and it's main attractions
