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.

I was nervous about taking the gondola ride,but once I got on it was breathtaking, and Iwanted to do it again. Both my husband and I were fascinated about the Britannia Mine experience. What the miners went through was amazing and terrifying.

This was a great way to experience nature in a very convenient way. Had a great time with our driver/tour guide. Landsea Tours is indeed great in doing their job!

Wonderful extremely scenic day out -beautiful drive. Shannon Falls gorgeous, Brittania mine tour very interesting could pan for something glittery afterwards.. Gondola ride was great and time to choose from various lunch options, shop for souvenirs and go on various short walks including a suspension bridge within the generous time frame. Very comfortable coach and friendly driver.I enjoyed this tour very much

Really enjoyed this day. Shannon Falls are amazing. The Gondola Ride takes you to high heights and the views would be amazing, but the smoke from the forest fires spoit ours, but it was still a great experience. Britannia Mine was also good.
To Sum Up - A Great day, and I would recommend this tour.

The Sea-to-Sky trip to Shannon Falls and the Gondola Ride was great! Lauren was wonderful! The views from the lodge at the top of the Gondola ride were amazing and we had a great lunch at the lodge. We both felt we could have skipped the mine.

What a day !
Very informative tour, sea to sky is just what it is with a trip to an old copper mine thrown in.
Spectacular views from the top of the gondarla looking out over the ocean and the suspension bridge was fun to walk across..

This trip met or exceeded all our expectations. Jana, our tour guide, was fantastic! She picked us up right on time at our hotel as promised. We were surprised to find out that because of the large number that had booked the tour for this day that they had added a small van to take us and five others on what turned out to be like a small private tour. The Sea-to-Sky Highway is a beautiful and scenic tour that came alive with Jana's descriptive commentary. She made it seem like she was was escorting her friends or relatives on a tour of her favorite places to visit. The Gondola ride to the summit was our favorite but Shannon Falls is such a unique site that it is not to be missed. The local guide at Britannia Mine added to our visit to this historic location by helping us understand what it was like to work deep underground in these dangerous conditions. Wow, what a fun day!

A great tour. It was raining on in the morning but our guide explained this was not unusual in Vancouver. A very informative trip and the weather cleared giving us excellent views. Shannon Falls was amazing, the gondola ride was very good with time to spend at the top. We both really enjoyed the Brittania Mine. In all not only a great day out but very informative. There was time for coffee at Horseshoe Bay and lunch at the Gondola. Would suggest a rain coat in case.

This tour was outstanding and a definite must visiting Vancouver. Seeing the falls, going through the Mine and the Gondola ride was a blast. We had an excellent tour guide that was very knowledgeable and took time to explain things to us along the trip.

This tour was excellent and our guide Dervla was very informative. I enjoyed our stop at Horseshoe Bay and Shannon Falls. The Sea-to-Sky gondola provided great views and walking across the suspension bridge gave me a taster of what to expect on the Capilano Suspension Bridge the following day. The visit to Britannia Mine was very interesting. As a bonus I saw a black bear crossing the road on our way back to the City.
