We couldn't have been luckier when we found out we could not buy tickets for the Hop-On Hop-Off bus as they couldn't handle the guests they already had! Lucky because we decided to book a last minute 2 hour private tour with Van Top Tours. Ruth, the owner/driver/guide picked us up, literally, on a street corner where we had, unsuccessfully, tried to get the bus and proceeded to give us an overview from Stanley Park to Granville Island and a jaunt through several districts of
Vancouver, all from the comfort of her excellent, spotless, comfortable Mercedes van.
Though she was on her way home from an earlier tour, she accommodated us for the two hours we requested. We were just the two of us, my husband and I, but the van seats at least 6 comfortably. We felt a bit smug as we passed the overcrowded Hop On busses, the guests not looking too happy. The Hop On was 54 CAD per person for the combo park and city routes. Ruth charges 115 CAD per hour and it was well worth it. She stopped when asked and gave a running commentary on the sights, sites, and history of the city. Highly recommend!
