It was fantastic. Tour guide was courteous, very informative, caring and entertaining. Went out of the way to show sites that were, maybe not inlcuded. And we saw up to 10 bears, I have photos to prove it. Loved it. What can I say. Will do it again with Viator.
This was a great trip up to Whistler by train and back by bus. The bus driver was very knowledgeable about the areas and and gave us the best opportunity to bear spot. Very relaxing trip.
Excellent day tour out. Peak to Peak was awesome. Seeing black bear and 3 cubs on roadside on way home surpassed all expectations.
This was a wonderful day trip, even though we did not get the best of weather. The train journey was smooth and the scenery was spectacular. We were lucky enough to see bears on our return journey by bus.
Whole trip was organised very efficiently. Excellent coach driver/guide and trip on Rocky Mountaineer was excellent as always. Cannot commend our guide highly enough.
This was an awesome trip! The scenery was spectacular, the staff was knowledgeable and friendly and the day was just perfect! Thank you!!
Fabulous, staff couldn't do enough for you on the train, seats very comfy, had 2 open carriages for photo ops which was great, fabulous scenery all the way, one of the highlights of our trip
Fabulous trip, the train was superb, slowed down for photographers and the breakfast was scrumptious. Plenty of time in Whistler, we did the Peak to Peak, the scenery was stunning. Beautiful day, sunny, blue skies, so we were very lucky.
We had a great time on this trip, the Rocky Mountaineer train journey was brilliant, service and personnel second to none. Tim our driver on the way back was very good, he even went out of his way to try and find us a bear to see. Would recommend booking with you to others.
Incredible trip with one-of-a-kind scenic views. The staff is very courteous and friendly. The bus trip back is quicker and you get to make a few stops along the way to view some pretty spectacular parts of British Columbia. Outstanding overall!
What a fantastic trip, we enjoyed the whole day, train was comfortable, staff attentive, food good. Loved Whistler too, the peak to peak cable car (gondola), was an incredible experience. Great guide (Will) who drove us back and stopped at 4 points of interest, including 2 amazing waterfalls. Thoroughly recommend.
Excellent trip well worth the money with a first class representative from the company
Excellent trip. Service on the train was fantastic. On the bus coming back, the tour guide did one more thing to make the trip memorable. When he saw a car ahead at a lay by he pulled in to it also. As he said "why would someone take a picture of a tree " and sure enough there was a big black bear on the other side of the road calmly roaming through the bushes.
Extremely great trip, very exceptional service.
Very pleased with overall trip.
I was absolutely thrilled with the Whistler Train Rail Tour. The service was 110% the scenery was awesome and the village of Whistler amazing. I am so thrilled to have been part of this wonderful trip.
Although the employees of the train company were on strike and picketing the trip was great. The management and volunteers did a great job filling in and could not have been more friendly and professional in their job duties. We booked the Glacier Dome and were very happy that we did. Big seats, open bar, great breakfast, great service, it couldn't have been better. Many reviews on this site say that the Glacier Dome wasn't worth it, I say go for it. It is definitely worth it and it's your vacation. Save money somewhere else. The LandSea tour was on time picking us up at the hotel and meeting us up in Whistler. Greg was our driver and was great. He becomes your personal tour director pointing out sites along the way and providing history and stories on the way back to Vancouver. He will even recommend restaurants in Whistler or Vancouver and call and make your reservations along the way. The guys incredible. Make sure you ask for him if you are taking this tour. We did the Gondola to the top and peak to peak was cool. Rained a little on the way up but still a great experience. Nothing went wrong at any time; we even saw many bears on the way back to Vancouver. Greg goes out of his way to make sure you see some. I would definitely do it again.
Do the trip . our guide was Will and he was amazing.
The train was fabulous! it went at a good pace so you could take photos and even slowed right down in some spots. the food served was great and the service was impeccable. Whislter was a beautiful town and we were lucky when we were there as it was a very hot day. lots of nice restaurants to eat. the bus trip was great Will our guide went out of his way to find us sightings of bears. We saw Five black bears of all sizes. A great day was had by all. Would recommend not to miss this trip.
It's a good idea going by train to Whistler and by bus going back to the hotel. We had a good time.
great trip, well organised. Train trip was terrific, very scenic, staff on train very attentive. Peak to Peak at Whistler was spectacular. Bus side of journey was also great, very informative and helpful driver, who made sure we saw bears (7) on way back! Would definitely recommend.
The train ride to Whistler (Rocky Mountaineer) was very picturesque but try and get a seat on the left side for the best views. I wouldn't worry about paying extra for the dome carriages as their is an outdoor carriage that is optimal for photography.
The time at Whistler went quite quickly but the tour guide, Andrew was terrific and helped plan each person's time. The trip back by bus was great. Andrew showed us some very unusual mansions and then we went bear spotting. Unfortunately we were only able to spot one bear by the side of the highway but at leats we didn't miss out. Shannon Falls was our last stop and it is not to be missed - beautiful. Thank you Andrew for a lovely day!
A great way to experience the Rocky Mountaineer train. Friendly helpful staff . Breathtaking views from the train and the bus ride back down the highway was a great way to see more of this beautiful country side and spot wildlife with the help of Brent our guide/bus driver.A great experience even though the weather was not the best at Whistler. Recommend the Peak to Peak the views are great and even got to see a bear walking round in the snow...
