    The first day our driver named Meenu was exceptional because she clearly spoke about all the relevant sights as well as public art. She was very informative. On our second day the driver did not talk much, preferring to run a recorded version of sightseeing highlights. The bus was running behind schedule on this day. When he dropped us off at Stanley Park he said the next bus would pick up in one hour. Unfortunately, the next bus was on schedule and came by 40 minutes later, which caused us to miss it. We had to wait an hour for the next pickup. It’s unfortunate that they did not communicate this to us.
