Awesome day at Whistler
, May 2019
Eric provided us with a friendly and insightful tour. We felt as if we had known him for years even though we had only just met. Nothing was too difficult for him. We got to experience Whistler and some wonderful stops along the way. We would highly recommend the tour, it exceeded our expectations.

Thank you recommending Vancity Tours! Our Whistler Tour is a great way to experience the world renowned Sea to Sky Highway and the Whistler Village which is awesome in the summer and the winter! Our guide Erick gets great reviews because of all the reasons you mention. Thanks again for sharing your experience!
Amazing Whistler
, Aug 2018
My husband, my sister and I had the pleasure of taking this private tour from Vancouver to Whistler. Eric was our guide and he was totally the best. He was professional, attentive and fun. The drive up there was amazing. Eric pointed out so many things for us that we never would have noticed otherwise. The weather was nice and the only bad part was some smog from the wild fires in BC. But, we were still able to see a lot. Whistler was amazing. We took the trams to the top (for a cost of about 62 Canadian dollars each, which was well worth it. The lines were long, but moved well. Totally recommend doing this if you are able. There are tons of restaurants and shops. It was great to see the Olympic rings and flags. It was a great day. If you have the opportunity to take this tour, it is really exceptional.

-Erick was a warm jovial chap with very good driving skills. -Beginning of the journey, we were welcome by a rainy weather which made us decide to give up visiting 1 of the waterfall since the rain seems to be quite heavy as well. -One of the key feedback, will be good if Erick can suggest to us what are the must do and must see /Must eat at Whistler Village. Initally we were abit lost in Whistler village and we thought we could only do shopping. -We almost missed visiting the peak to peak, which in my opinion is one of the key highlights. Granted its a free and easy Trip, it can be too free and easy in such a big place. - The drive from city to Whistler is pretty managable. about 90 minutes.

Highly recommend the tour offered on Viator through Erick,Erick picked us up on time from our Vancouver Hotel in an immaculate, spacious vehicle. We had a wonderful day exploring Whistler and the sites on route to Whistler. Erick is full of energy and made it a fun day, self paced and shared so much local knowledge and made us feel like a VIP.

Excellent tour with an excellent guide. Erik is friendly and knowledgeable. He went out of his way to make sure we had a great time. My husband and I love to travel and have used Viator multiple times and this trip totally exceeded our expectations. We truly enjoyed this trip and we highly recommend Erik Schmitz' services. He is also a good photographer so we have lots of pictures to remind us of this wonderful trip. We cannot wait to go back and would not hesitate use him as our tour guide again.
