Shannon Falls was a beautiful sight. Going up the gondola have you gorgeous views of the glacial mountains. The only part that was just okay was the britannica mine. I didn’t have time to stifle through for treasure but I did get some good pictures. Howe Sound is just amazing:)
An excellent tour from start to finish. Our guide was Joe. The first things he did was ask if anyone was hungry and made an extra stop for us to get a quick breakfast. He was super informative and friendly. Even though we only had a specific amount of time at each stop, we never felt rushed. Shannon falls and the gondola ride are really cool. The mine tour at the end was very informative and fun. It starts with a train ride into the mine, which both my kids loved.
A Great Day Trip!
We had a day to spend in Vancouver prior to boarding our cruise ship. We had been to Vancouver several times and wanted to visit the surrounding area. Paula was our driver/guide. She was very good with her facts and had a great sense of humor. She is from the Vancouver area and took great pride in sharing her knowledge with us. The Britannia Mine tour was quite interesting as was the visit to the Shannon Falls area. We were able to view Stanley Park, The harbor bridge and get the inside scoop on the elite homes in the area. The best part was the AWESOM gondola ride up the mountain. We enjoyed on our own lunch at the restaurant on top and took tons of photos. The views were spectacular!!! The suspension bridge was beautiful to look at but I didn't dare the walk across it...all though several adventurous people in our group loved it. I highly recommend this tour, However it may not be a good choice for anyone with mobility issues due to some hilly and uneven walking areas. The gondola aides did assist people using canes and walkers.
This trip was very good. We got picked up at the hotel - the tour guide was very prompt. The bus was small and comfortable with plenty of leg room. Megan was our tour guide and she was very knowledgable and friendly. First we went to Horseshoe Bay for a photo stop and time for coffee. Next stop is Shannon Falls - this is very beautiful but be prepared to not have much time there. We had about 20 minutes. Next we went to the gondola - you go up as a group and have about 2 hours. This was plenty to get some lunch at the restaurant at the top and explore. There are some easy walking trails and a small suspension bridge and small wildlife viewing opportunities. Final stop is the mining museum - which was really interesting. You go on a small train into the mines which was fun and then get a demonstration of what life was like in the mines. Then back to downtown Vancouver - it was good as they split us up onto tow buses back in Vancouver to get us back to our hotels quicker.
A great day! Loads of lovely places to visit and we had more than enough time at the Sea-to-Sky Gondola to eat and do all the walks.
Our guide was...I think his name was Richard...he was from Coventry anyway but it was great.
