This was a great trip. Picked up on time at Canada Pace and following the additional pick ups we set off on the long drive to Whistler. Our driver and guide for the day, Danny, was very good providing us with lots of good information on the way. Danny was a good guide, did not over do the commentary, he provided the interesting facts, not boring us with non stop chat and drivel.
Stop off on the way to Whistler was the lovely Shannon Falls. A beautiful place to break the journey.
Whistler was lovely. The Peak to Peak Gondola is a must do. Yes, it is a bit pricey, however, it is fantastic. Stunning views, a wonderful experience. We had 4 hours in Whistler which we found a little tight, as we stopped for lunch after the peaks.
The drive to and from Whistler is stunning, particularly, Howe Sound. The stop off at Porteau Cove could probably have been a little longer as the views were stunning.
The weather was great, our guide was very good, the views were amazing.
A fantastic day which was a highlight of our Vancouver trip.
The tour guide was AMAZING! Filled with many fun stories that kept us entertained the whole time.
Whistler was beyond beautiful. We highly recommend doing the ATV off-roading experience, worth it!
We took the trip on 28th April
A great trip and Meagan was awesome. She was chatty, pleasant and had tons of tidbit knowledge - full marks to her. There were only 2 things that could have been improved:
1 There were 25 people on the trip so I don't think that it should be classified as a 'small group' trip - that is, of course, my personal view
2 The peak to peak was shut for maintenance and we were told that this is normal in this period - it would have been better if this could have been stated upfront while booking since this does have a bearing on the decision to book or not book. There were no other significant sedentary activities that could be done in Whistler in lieu of the gondola cable car ride.
I went on this tour a few weeks ago and despite the rainy and snowy weather, I had a great time! The driver and guide, Joe, was so friendly, warm, and acoommodating! I defintely recommend taking advantage of the including admission to the Squamish-Lil'Wat Cultural Centre and learning about the native peoples of the area. We made several stops along the way and none of them disappointed. The rainy and cloudy weather provided a haunting backdrop to the greenery on our level. Whistler is small enough to explore in a couple hours and has some good places to eat and drink! I wanted to do the Peak-to-Peak but unfortunately the weather was not on our side. However, I kept plenty busy in the village, the museum, and walking a trail next to the road. Highly recommend if you want to see the natural side of British Columbia!
This trip was amazing! Although we didn't have the best weather our driver Joe made sure we still had a great time.
Stopping off at certain view points on the trip up to Whistler to see sights, and providing umbrellas to help with the constant rain.
Once we were in Whistler, where rain changed to snow, we had 4 hours to ourselves to fill how we wanted and there are plenty of activities to choose from.
We even spotted a whale in the bay on our drive back down to Vancouver.
Definitely recommend! Great service.
This tour was great. Could have spent longer there but it's a good taster for non skiers and skiers alike.
Would love to go back again.
An excellent day trip for non skiers. Very friendly, professional, helpful guide with lots of stop on the way to whistler, beautiful views. Good fun.
Our guide Aubyn sorry if butchered your name! was fantastic. The trip up was relaxed and made a few stops to check out the sights and get a bit of background on it all. In Whistler we did a snowmobile experience so didn't have a lot of time to explore the village itself. There were 8 of us on the bus including the guide so we were able to chat with our fellow group and even ran into one couple back in Vancouver a couple of times the next day.
Highly recommend the experience!
It was awesome. The drive to Whistler was very scenic and comfortable. There were also enough stops on the way to make the long trip very enjoyable. Our guide was both very knowledgeable and helpful. The gondola ride was definitely well worth it.
