This isn't the best hop on hop off tour I have been on. Usually they're a great way to get a lay of the land, but this one isn't great. The re-purposed school bus was not comfortable and downtown Vancouver traffic ensures that you'll be...More

We will be arriving into Vancouver in late April from a Holland America Cruise. We would like to get to Victoria that same day. Does Westcoast offer this service? We will have our luggage from the cruise with us. Thank you!
