What You Can Expect

Whistler Small-Group Day Trip from Vancouver

Shannon Falls, Canada

Your full-day tour of Whistler begins with morning pickup from select hotels in Vancouver. Meet your guide and climb aboard the spacious coach, then relax and take in the dramatic British Columbia landscape as you exit the city. Cruise through the Sea-to-Sky corridor, soaking up views of the Tantalus Mountains and the plunging Cheakmus River canyon.

Ascend to a lofty 2,000 feet (609 meters) into Whistler Valley, where you’ll stop for the afternoon to participate in a number of optional activities (fees not included in tour). Hop on the high-speed Peak 2 Peak Gondola, take a zipline tour through the alpine forest, explore the mountains by snowmobile or ATV or take a stroll through Whistler Village.

Take some time to check out the small ski community, buy lunch at a local cafe or restaurant or visit the Aboriginal Cultural Center and Museum (admission included). Afterward, enjoy a relaxing drive back to your departure point in Vancouver, breaking to view the rush of Shannon Falls, British Columbia's third-highest waterfall.

Your 11-hour excursion concludes back at your departure point in the evening.

Due to the fact that there were only 6 people on the tour we had some additional stops at Brandywine waterfalls,near Anvil island and on Cyprus mountain for a view at Vancouver at night.Our guide made sure we knew the layout of the village and where we were going to be picked up.He also suggested additional activities.

My trip to Whistler was wonderful. The weather wasn't the best it rained most of the day, but it was a great day. Our tour guide Steve was wonderful. He was from the area and knew a lot. It was great. Shannon falls was gorgeous. Everything was gorgeous! Whistler is such a cute little village with a ton of shops and places to eat. It was really fun to see all of the things left over from the Olympics. My one disappointment was the peak to peak gondola was not running. I wish I would have known that ahead of time, but that is the only thing that I have to complain about. It was nice wandering Whistler for a few hours. The drive alone is worth the trip.

An excellent trip to Whistler. Steve the driver and tour guide did a 10/10 commentary and nothing was too much trouble. He had a wealth of knowledge of the area. Would recommend this tour to anyone visiting Vancouver.

Our guide Taylor was simply amazing. Went out of his way to make our day a truly memorable one and on the way home also got to see a live bear in his natural environment.
