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.
Had a great time. Everything worked well. The local tour company operating the tour were friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. Thanks to our guide Greg. We thought that training it one way, and going back by bus to stop at some of the sights was a good way to go. Recommended.
At 0630 Brent the driver was on time and patiently waiting outside. Dropped at station Brent assured us he would be at the other end. Comfy seats and good commentry en route. After breakfast the Henry Pickering observation car was opened for glass free viewing. Lakes, logs, fancy houses, fancy gardens, trees, bridges, mountains and mist thundered by and we arrived in Whistler about Midday. Brent was there, advised us where and what was on offer and on time took us back via the Shannon Falls and other views. Full day out. Great recommended trip and 10 out of 10 for Brent.
Lovely day out lots to see and great service. Guide was fantastic and very helpful went out of his way to accommodate everyone's wishes.
This tour is by no means cheap but it is well worth the money. We were picked up at our hotel and taken to the station. We had a light breakfast on the train while travelling through the beautiful countryside to Whistler. The commentary given by the guide on the train was excellent and so was the service. We had a few hours in Whistler and then back on the bus to Vancouver, stopping at the waterfalls on the way home. Our driver/ guide was great value and we had a very enjoyable drive back into Vancouver. Would highly recommend this tour.
Amazing trip, well worth the money. You get to see the fabulous scenery on the train and then get to spend time exploring Whistler.
