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.
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.
