This was a well organised and very enjoyable day trip. Our tour leader Katrina really knew her stuff and provided a very informative and entertaining commentary for the outward journey, quieter on the way back when, as she rightly observed, many of us were a bit sleepy! This was the first time my wife and I have ever done a coach trip, we usually hire a car on holiday and find our own way but this time couldn't be bothered. We're so glad as it meant we got taken straight to all the good bits without wasting time. It was particularly valuable having a tour leader who was local and so obviously proud of the city she comes from. I hope she enjoys her trip to London in the fall! Would highly recommend this trip, it was a great decision to take it.
Great tour guide Aubyn, who remembered everyone's names and created a superb atmosphere and got everyone chatting. Whistler was nice, but such a shame there was a bike convention during our visit, which created a chaotic environment. The stops were great and the commentary, excellent.
This day was a highlight on our Canada experience. Whistler was beautiful and when the gondola got stuck for about fifteen minutes we were given a drink coupon for the restaurant at the top of the mountain. It wasn't necessary though because while we'd been in the gondola we got to see and take photos of a mother and baby bear. The visit to the cultural centre was well worth doing as was the side trip to the waterfall. Tour guide was excellent. All in all a great day.
This was a great way to get from Vancouver to Whistler. Our guide was very knowledgeable, and narrated on the way to Whistler. Once there, we were given lots of time to explore the village, or engage in other activities. The Peak to Peak gondola was one of the options, and if you are not afraid of heights, this is a must. The views are spectacular.
excellent tour, the guide is great, we love the gondola ride in between the mountain, very impressive.
Oh my gosh - this was the best tour ever. This was on my birthday, and all I wanted selfishly!! was to see bears, moose and have some snow...not too much to ask hey.
We went to Porteau Cove, Squamish Cultural Centre - these were lovely places, we visited Alexander Falls - magical with snow falling, saw a black bear beside the road on the way to Alexander Falls. Whistler Village even had some snow - you get to Whistler and are left to do your own thing and then return to the tour bus. We had only a small tour group which was good - I think only 5 or 7 people only in total. We also stopped at Shannon Falls on the way back it was too overcast on the way up so tour guide swapped it over. Tour guide sorry can't remember his name was really good, very knowledgable, and found us a bear!!!! Would highly recommend this tour - you may not get bears and snow but it is still a great tour. Thankyou
Our tour operators were very experienced. Our driver, Khaled, was local to the area and was able to give us some interesting insights to cultural aspects of the area during the tour.
The drive from Vancouver to Whistler is bout two hours but this is interspersed with stops along the way. Fortunately, our guide had the nouse not to just jabber away, quite unlike many tour guides we've come across..
We were collected and returned to our hotel within minutes of the times stated on the day.
There's not a lot to do in Whistler village as it's designed for snow sports mainly we went during June but there is the large gondola lift and great walking/cycling available.
Our tour was fabulous. After contacting Viator, we learned that add-ons were available through Land/Sea Tours so we made a reservation to zip line while we were in Whistler. It would have been nice to have been contacted by the tour company prior to our trip to learn of the many add-on options... Such as horseback riding, off-road tours, bungee jumping just to name a few.
Excellent tour to Whistler from Vancouver , pick up / drop off from hotel , driver / guide (Frances) provided first class information on tour. Recommend
If you want to see amazing scenery of this wonderful country well this tour is for you. We had a fine sunny day and the mountains and lakes were spectacular. We had time to enjoy Whistler and do the Peak to Peak Gondola ride. Our guide was helpful, friendly and knowledgeable.
If you're staying in Vancouver this is a great way to see Whistler and the sights on the way there and back.
We had a wonderful day, Greg was a great tour guide. Sights are beautiful had free time at Whistler.
This was an excellent trip and the guide was very informed and very caring when one lady was not feeling well, he went out of his way to get her ginger ale to make her feel better. This was Avery enjoyable day.
Excellent tour, we packed so much into one day. I liked the fact that we did quite a few stops on the way to Whistler as the scenery on the drive there is spectacular. It was also good to have plenty of free time in Whistler do our own thing. Our guide was friendly and knowledgable but also flexible to adapt the tour according to what we were interested in. Highly recommended!
This was an excellent day trip from Vancouver. The driver was fun, informative and very knowledgeable. Interesting stops along the way to Whistler and plenty of time in Whistler to look around. Highly recommend this tour.
This was a great tour. Steve, our driver gave a good commentary, and looked after the group well. The hotel pickup was a bonus to the day.
Absolutely a fantastic trip. The tour guide was excellent very knowledgeable and helpful. He went that extra mile to make sure everyone had the best time and a lot of memories of our trip to Whistler.
This was a fantastic tour. Very obliging people enabled us to postpone for a day due to illness. The driver Tim was very informative and extremely friendly. We had a tour of Vancouver as well and he really made the trip entertaining and enjoyable. It was ideal for what we wanted and fitted so much into one day. Beautiful scenery and the free time at Whistler was ideal. A fantastic adventure that I wouldn't have missed.
Great trip, great guide, great day. Taylor, our guide was exceptional, very knowledgeable, very kind and very professional. If you love Vancouver you will not want to leave Whistler. Thank you.
We had a wonderful day driving to Whistler from Vancouver. The views along the way were beautiful if you love mountains and ocean and waterfalls like we do. Snow covered mountains along the way, stopped at Shannon Falls which was a short walk from the parking lot. In Whistler, we took the Peak 2 Peak Gondola ride. How Amazing to span between Whistler Mountain and Blackcomb Mountain. Saw a black bear near the mountain bike trail on our way down. Walked around the lovely town of Whistler and had another closer black bear sighting on the way back. Would highly recommend this tour to anyone visiting the area that wants to see some of the area around Vancouver. We had hotel pick up and drop off. Most convenient.
