The ride takes one hour and is a very pleasant way to see the south east corner of the park and to hear all about its history, the tour guides are also very friendly and helpful.

It was ok but not worth the $42.00 per person. We thought we would see a lot more by riding in it. Could have walked faster. The tour guide was reasonabley knowledgeable considering he had only been in Canada 4 months. We kind of felt...More

Driver Chantal and horses Grit and Jasper provided a leisurely ride through the park. Chantal's commentary provided facts about the park, the horses, the varieties of trees/wildlife and the history of the park. Pleasant way to see the park.

With limited time, iffy weather and this being our first visit to Stanley Park, my husband and I opted for the horse-drawn tour. It was a pleasant introduction and we did not experience any rude staff members, though it is clearly a keep-em-moving commercial operation....More

The ride is for about 1 hour and a half, the conductor gives a lot of information about the number one Park in a city in the world. I loved Stanley Park.

We've done a few horse drawn carriage rides and this may have been the shortest. The driver was informative, the carriage was comfortable, and the experience was pleasant. But while it was an hour long, that included a couple of stops, a very slow ride...More

Ride is about an hour. The driver narrates and gives you lots of information. Our driver was very monotone but fine. You go though most of the park and certainly all the highlights. You see the runner statute, girl in a wet suit, totem poles,...More

Stanley Park
Stanley Park is Vancouver's premier spot to get up
close and personal with nature and animals. The grassy
expanse offers outdoor teahouses and stunning views,
beachfront hideaways and splash parks. It is a typical
getaway spot for friends and families, especially as
it is home to Vancouver's aquarium, and some of its
best equestrian outlets.

Yes, it's near the entrance to the park & signposted through the park. Buy tickets at the kiosk (although they were in the process of having a new ticket office & staging post built adjacent to it) & enjoy!
