Vancouver Trolley Company (The)
There are many ways to see Vancouver, and this way is literally a classic. This company refurbished some locally manufactured early 1900s trolley cars, setting them back on the tracks that they once plied daily. There are 16 stops along the tour, and passengers can get on or off at their needs. The trolley stops at some of the city's highlights, including Gastown , Canada Place and the Vancouver Aquarium in Stanley Park . The tours are offered all-year round.
Today I had a great day in downtown Vancouver, I went for a ride on the Vancouver Trolleys. There on/off tour ride was fun as I was able to get off at stops I liked and spend time there then 40mins later I would catch the next Trolley and go to a different part of Vancouver. I spend time on 3 Trolleys with 3 different drivers and that was great as well, as the different drivers had there own spin and stories of the sites. I recommend this for families or people just looking for a good time around the city.
Scheduled (and paid for - $360) evening trip and trolley never arrived. Called for explanation, and they said they would send a taxi? Taxi never arrived. Requested refund, and was sent a box of chocolates. Total waste of our evening in Vancouver! Do not recommend.
Waited for over 2 HOURS! Trolly's did not run on time. When they finally showed up...3 of them were FULL! They finally added an overflow trolly. After waiting about an hour in Gastown, trolly's were again a no show. We wasted half our day waiting, then having to walk back to our hotel as we had spent our transportation budget for this hop on hop off trolly. I would advise taking the red bus option, as they seemed plentiful and on time. The trolly co. had alot of excuses, such as, alot of cruise ships in town, unforseen road construction, etc...
The hotel did offer us a refund which we gratefully accepted. The damage, however, was done and our time in Vancouver was over. We did not get to see or do several things.
DISLIKED...The reps at their customer service especially their manager will never be of any help. Although the drivers do their best and are really cordial, the service itself is never on time. It will either be late most of the times and even arrive and leave the stop before time sometimes. In cases when the last trolley leaves before time and you are stranded, reps at their customer service will make it sound as a favor for providing what they should have in the first place.
Try the Big Bus instead, much better and on time most of the time.
One of the city's least crowded beaches, Spanish Banks is a great place to go to appreciate the sea's wonder

This bit of serenity lies smack in the middle of the mad business and shopping district downtown . The square
provides a lunchtime refuge for harried office workers who sometimes forget what peaceful repose is like. There are trees, ...
