Whistler is a dream. The driver went out his way so as we could see bears, what happened, but i believe we could have seen a little more of squamish.

Had a wonderful day, Greg was a great tour guide. To my great excitement we saw about 3 bears on the side of the road. I went on the Peak to Peak Gondola, the only negative was the weather - there was very low cloud. All in all I would thoroughly recommend the tour, had a great day

This was a good tour, the guide/driver in one was excellent, very knowledgable, friendly and attentive, making sure we all had a good time and connecting with everyone in the group. Highly recommend!

There were four of us on this trip and we really enjoyed it. The driver was most interesting with lots of facts about the area we were visiting. My only negative was our hotel wasn't on the pick-up list and as we were so early, we had to get a taxi.

The trip was worth it. The tour guide is really good in making everyone comfortable. He even made sure that there is interaction among the passengers. He broke the ice and we all became friendly towards each other.
I recommend the trip. The scenery is breathtaking.

It was a nice set up with hotel pick up and drop off. But, one could also take a public bus up and enjoy Whistler just the same.

Overall, the trip was excellent despite the rain. The driver (Johny) was informed, if a bit glib at times, but he kept us entertained. He was also quite gracious about taking pictures of passenger groups as the various stops we made.
His driving, however, was not so good. He consistently drove 5-10 kph faster than the posted speed limits despite the rainy, slick road conditions. (I could see the speedometer from my seat). In attempting to keep the speed up the transmission was constantly shifting trying to find the right gear.
He was steering was also somewhat abrupt, using less frequent large corrections (sometimes over- corrections) rather than using more frequent small smooth corrections.
As a result I was constantly banged either against my seat mate or the window as well as forward and backward.
He was a typical young male driver without enough experience in a 16-passenger bus to realize how close he was to the edge of the vehicle's performance limits. I would not take this tour again if he were the driver.

The only part of this trip that was not very good was the weather. We booked the add-on sea plane flight which was brilliant. The guide was more that helpful and very informative.

The tour itself was good overall. Our guide, while very knowledgeable and energetic, needs to learn when it's ok to be quiet - and not talk the entire day.

Very nicely done trip. Our guide was very personable and knowledgeable, and went out of his way to make the trip special. Stopped a couple of times at extra sites that he thought would be of interest. It's nice having someone else driving along a scenic route, so you can just sightsee.
