Excellent day, wonderful trip, superbly organised. Would highly recommend this tour. Thank you.
One of the greatest train ride I have been in many years as MY HUSBAND's FATHER was a Sr. Fuel
Inspector on the southern RAILWAYS from the 30's to the 70's in INDIA and have been on many a train rides , BUT THIS ONE WAS SOMETHING TO REMEMBER FOR A LIFE TIME..
My husband who is camera mad had a ball. thanks for the ride we love it with all the attention we go on the train . will do it again if we got another chance in life.
One of my favorite tour, the train trip up to Whistler, staff were amazing breakfast was very good, lot of information , spend time in Whistler then bus back to Vancouver, with stops on the way, the young guy who drove the bus kept us informed ,and was very entertaining, then we had the mystery stop which turned out to be a lookout where you can see the sights of Vancouver,what a great day, then back to hotel about 7 pm, great value tour well worth doing,
Beautiful scenery on way up to Whistler by train - even better on the way back. Our coach guide was terrific and told us not only about the scenery and wildlife, but also a lot of history. He was an excellent guide. Would definitely recommend this tour
Thoroughly enjoyable trip. Anthony on the train was fantastic with all the guests, very friendly and knowledgable. Ray was so enthusiastic and welcoming and you could tell he loved his job. Wonderful trip with stunning scenery of a beautiful part of BC. Would recommend this trip to others.
Excellent experience. Outstanding knowledge of tour guide, providing plenty of information and interesting facts about the area. All were very friendly.
Superb trip with different views up by train, back by minibus, and the 2 peak gondola trip exposed staggering vistas. I can highly recommend.
FABULOUS - the service both from our young tour guides on the Rocky Mountaineer and the Bus back to Vancouver was the best....so knowledgeable and you felt like they really enjoyed their work. Saw lots of bears (think we had the record of the month at ten) please pass on regards for great day to the guides
We did have such a great time it was a wonderful trip beautiful place... we would like to go back and stay in the Village.
Nice sightseeing tour by Train Rail. Worth to join.
Our railroad conductor was awesome. Our overall tour guide from "land and sea" really made the trip memorable. Highly recommend the trip
My husband and I absolutely loved this trip. It was comfortable, relaxing and exciting to see the rivers and fiords. We would love to do another train trip!
Long train ride was comfortable with good food! The narrator was knowledgeable and friendly!
The shuttle ride back was a good sight-seeing trip itself!
Great tour, our guide, Sam, was excellent, she gave us a lot of information, help us to take also the glaciers tours and it was just incredible.
This was a very enjoyable tour. Susan, our guide in the coach was very knowledgeable and always told us if a special point of interest was coming up. We liked going to the open air coach where you got the fresh breeze and could see the Falls, etc. better. We didn't spend much time in Whistler but took the gondola up the mountain, had lunch and then went to Blackcomb Mtn. Peak to Peak! Back to Whistler Mtn. and down to the town and it was almost time to get on the bus for Vancouver. Graham was our driver and guide. He was great. We made good time going back to Vancouver so he took us to his favorite look out, which is a place you can stop and then look out over Vancouver. That was so neat and beautiful.
This tour was awesome!
Communication was spot on, pick up was on time, the tour guide was very knowledgable and polite.
The train was amazing, the views were picturesque and the breakfast on board was great!
The 4 hours at whistler was a little quick but you can only do so much in a day.
Excellent tour. The train journey on the Rocky Mountaineer was superb with fantastic scenery. Whistler was lovely and very interesting. Our bus journey back to Vancouver was equally good - more wonderful scenery and our driver/guide Lisa was very knowledgeable and entertaining.
Would definitely recommend this trip.
The train ride was amazing, staff was very helpful. The guide did a great job of explaining all the significant sights on the way. Highly recommend this tour.
Simply fabulous. The train ride and hospitality were superb. We took a jeep ride from Whistler up the ski slopes towards the top of the mountain and spotted a black bear, what a treat. Whistler itself is nothing special but the train trip, bus journey home, and bear spotting throughout the day made this a truly memorable day.
Warwick our host was really enthusiastic and remembered everyone's first names. He really made the trip back down from Whistler really enjoyable and informative.
The trip on the Rocky Mountaineer was as good an experience as I had expected - plenty of stunning views - waterfalls, deep ravines, rivers and high mountains. The food on board was okay and the service was great. Good commentary and a chance to ride in the observation car. A good way to sample the Rocky Mountaineer before booking a longer trip. We had plenty of time to walk around Whistler. The First Nations exhibition centre was fascinating. Warwick picked us up on time and although it rained on the way back it stopped by the time we got to Squamish and the falls. They were truly stunning. It was the last day of a wonderful holiday and truly memorable.
Excellent all round. Great guide for the initial round up and for the Whistler and return aspects. And the Rocky Mountaineer experience was excellent. Highly recommended.
Whistler trip by train and returning by bus is AWESOME. Adding an extra hour is recommended to this tour. Rocky Mountaineer coach attendant are very much informative and are perfect guides. Sorry for not remembering our bus driver as well as guide but hats up to him too. This tour is worth visiting.
