an easy way to get around - hop on hop off - see the Rose Garden, views back to V harbour, the magnificent First Nation Totem Poles. 1.5 to 2 hours all the time necessary.

Fun Bus Tours is a great way to see the sites in Vancouver and Whistler. Van was comfortable, clean, and safe. Costs are the most reasonable in the Area and provide many special stops to take pictures and sight see. Excellent Value!

This customer emailed us and we let her know in advance that we had to collect the dreaded Harmonized Sales Tax (HST) on her purchase as required by our government here in BC.

Although it is unfortunate, on occasion due to lack of bookings our company is forced to cancel a tour. For a small company to go on tour for several hours with just one or two guests is cost prohibitive, which sometimes force us to cancel a tour, especially when we get last minute cancellations. In the above case we had... More

Staying in West End

Neighbourhood Profile
West End
A hodgepodge of landscapes, the West End combines verdant gardens and blocky modern architecture, with Victorian bits and Edwardian bobs in between. It is a paradise for takeout food, take-away coffee, and perhaps incongruously, some of Vancouver's most languid lines of beachfront. English Bay and Sunset Beach invite swimmers, strollers, and picnic-lovers to take in dusk settling over the water, or to jog along with the sunrise, offering breathtaking views at any time of day. The West End merges together so many looks and flavors probably because it functions a hub: its the leafy pit-stop between nightlife and entertainment venues along Davie Street, and the shopping paradise that is Robson Street, offering visitors beautiful parkland to rest on, and quick, easy food to re-fuel with in between ventures.
