This was a good package tour to enjoy major places in BC. Above all Butchart Garden was a great surprise...I had though it might be boring to go there in winter, but not at all...illumination in the garden was really beautiful and it made the garden look like a wonderland!
We had 7 days in Vancouver prior to a cruise. The half day trip around Vancouver conducted by Rick was a great trip with interesting and informative descriptions of the sites. It gave us an insight into the places to visit in our spare time over the coming days. I would recommend this for your first day.
Our second day was to Whistler and this was an extremely interesting and enjoyable day with a great tour guide. The mountain bike competitions were on during our visit to it made it even more interesting. I would recommend the Gondola ride we took to Whistler Mountain, then the chairlift to the top. Although it was the end of summer there was still snow on the peak. On our return then took the Peak 2 Peak to Blackcomb mountain return with some great sights before returning to the village for a hot dog. Great day out and the highlight. The wildlife was interesting including the cheeky chipmunks and marmots.
Third day to Vancouver Island, Victoria and the Butchart Gardens. Another full wonderful day and experience with a great guide. Can't describe how great that the gardens were - you must see them.
Finally the last two days were fully utilized on the hop-on-off bus where we visited the sights, jumped off to do some shopping, and back on for more sights. We used the two days going around the circuit several times which permitted us to fit in the shopping as well. No issues at all if you are organized.
Finally we also did the Capilano Suspension Bridge and Grouse Mountain tour - another enjoyable tour.
I would recommend all of these tours if you have time.
Really friendly tour guides. Excellent services and beautiful scenic tour. Highly recommended!
All tour guides were well informed and humorous that helped make the tour extremely interesting and enjoyable, a credit to Vancouver! If you want to ensure that you maximise your visit to Vancouver, then this tour package is a must.
This 5-Day Tour of Vancouver was the making of our short trip to BC. We found the service great. We were picked up and dropped off at our hotel. The guides and drivers were passionate about the places we visited. They made it so interesting and we saw a great deal of the sights. So enjoyable and trouble free.
All four trips with you were excellent - the service and guides were very friendly and helpful. Made our stay in Vancouver enjoyable.
Drivers were excellent, knowledge of area was wonderful. We enjoyed everything about the tour. Such a great way to experience the important sights in British Columbia.
Enjoyed all the tours. Excellent narration by all tour guides (Andy and Jack of West Coast Sightseeing and Tours). I had lost my Whistler cap in Victoria (at Sam's Deli), but this was promptly recovered by the next tour guide and delivered to my hotel (Best Western) after I reported it. Big thanks for the excellent service. I will remember this trip forever. I highly recommend the 5-day tour for any first-time visitors to Vancouver, BC.
A good tour package that gave us a chance to see all the major tourist attractions in the 3 days we had. So we could not take advantage of the hop on hop off part. However, the trips to Whistler and Victoria were well worth the time and money spent. The city tour was a bit of a hurried affair. But considering the many sights that the driver had to take us to, I guess it is difficult to do more.
The trip was good. The main thing - weather was cooperating - 3 days rain or drizzle out of 5.
Other then that everything was beautiful - would like to have more time in Victoria though, slightly felt like
tour company dropped us in downtown to spend the money. Guides were good.
Two days hop-on hop-off ticket is a waist of money- One day to see the Vancouver city is more then enough.
The tours to Victoria, Vancouver and Whistler were fantastic. The only disappointment was that the hop--on-hop-off bus didn't run any later, so we couldn't use it to go to dinner.
This tour was so wonderfull except the city tour, for the city tour the bus was fully occupied, we couldn't get good view , no enough time in each stop. Whistler mountain tour and our guide (sorry if I confused his name Jeff native with long hear of ponytail ) he maid our day wonderful
The tour guides were OUTSTANDING(Mike and "First Nation" Jeff(?)). They both know Vancouver EXTREMELY WELL! Friendly and FUNny. Safe drivers and very informative. It was also nice that they picked us up and dropped us off at our hotel. Plenty of time at each place to enjoy and not have to hurry through the sites. The tour package of Vancouver and Whistler was well worth the money.
Definitely a worthwhile series of trips to undertake if you are in Vancouver for a short time period. We stayed four days following a cruise. The half day orientation to Vancouver is very helpful and gave us lots of ideas for dining and spending our own time in various places. The 2 day "Hop on, Hop off" passes helped us to do this and we had a great time choosing what we wanted to do on our own. Please note the Vancouver Island and Whistler trips are very long days and could be tiring. Arrange your itinerary so that these days do not occur immediately before flights out of Vancouver! The drivers and staff were very helpful, funny and keen to answer questions. Definitely recommend this to my friends.
Your tour guides were wonderful and very knowledgeable. They were on time and very friendly and helpful. I found the two last free days useless. I didn't use the passes because they were a repeat of the first day.
First two trips was fantastic tour guides were very good third guide I found very unsatisfactory his name was jack not only was he late by 10 minutes he drove like an idiot to get to the other hotels because of being late he caused a lady to fall because he drove off before she had a chance to sit down this lady was suffering with a bad neck before the fall. Very disappointed with the last trip karen price
Day 1 - Personalised city tour of Vancouver which was fun especially lunch at Granville Island Markets.
Day 2 - Full day at Whistler which was an amazing drive, visiting waterfalls on the way but the weather turned to rain when we got to Whistler that we didn't get to go up on the chair lift nor see the mountains from the village.
Day 3 - Full day at Victoria which included an amazing ferry ride, a great tour guide named Jeff and a wonderful time at Butchart Gardens; Victoria was lovely too.
Day 4 and 5 - only a 2 day ticket for a hop-on hop-off ride around Vancouver
The staff tour guides are rude and should not be in the service industry
The only good guide I had on this package was the tour guide that took us to wislter.(Sorry just can not remember his name)
I have done many hop on hop of bus in many cities and have to said this is below average.
If your looking for a cheap way of getting around Vancouver hop on hop off is ok
