After hotel pickup in Vancouver, travel north with your guide aboard a luxury coach toward Whistler. The route along Highway 99, the Sea-to-Sky corridor, offers plenty of gorgeous scenery that makes for a memorable journey.

 

Your route begins at sea level and tracks the shore along Howe Sound. Stop in Squamish and ride the Sea-to-Sky Gondola, a 90-minute aerial experience offering spectacular views of Howe Sound, coastal forests, and the Squamish River. At the Summit Lodge, 2,900 feet (885 meters) above sea level, relax and enjoy the views, perhaps with a beer or snack (own expense). Or, embark on one of the nearby trails, one of which includes a suspension bridge.

Your next stop along the Sea-to-Sky corridor is Brandywine Falls, situated between Garibaldi Heights and Whistler. Spend an hour here to watch the falls’ 230-foot (70-meter) drop, as well as Daisy Lake, from the large viewing platform.

 

Once you reach Whistler Village, enjoy four hours to explore this bustling village on your own. Choose from an array of activities and attractions, and feel free to ask your guide for recommendations. Your trip concludes with return transport to your original departure point.

I did this day trip yesterday and i loved it! It was an amazing trip that permits you to see other then vancouver in one day. Summer time, 4 hours in whistler is to much but winter time must be amazing. The sea to sky gondola is amazing

Always a pleasure exploring beautiful BC but I will say the Whistler portion of this tour was disappointing. A lot of shops / restaurants were closed / closed down (which I completely understand in the times we are in) and the peak to peak gondola was closed for maintenance (which I didn’t know prior and would have loved to experience that). 4 hours of browsing around at expensive shops and walking some trails being mindful of the time so didn’t go far was boring to me. Just not what I expected. I’m grateful for the experience but likely would have spent my money on other excursions if I’d known.

The tour guide we had, Brent, was so amazing! Knowledgeable and friendly and went out of his way to make sure everyone had a good time. 10/10 would recommend. A long day but we’ll worth the money and the gondola is an amazing experience. You won’t be disappointed!

Sea to sky gondola is nice. For Whistler, the tour operator should have told us that the peak to peak and the gondolas were closed before we bought this tour

Unforgettable trip with phenomenal view

The bus was very comfortable, communication was effective. The view was phenomenal in the sea to sky gondola ride. We didn’t using time effectively and missed some important points as there were no tour during the sky top and Whistler village. Due to COVID, there were less people. Driver had to drive and introduce the city to us at same time. We were expecting more such as tour in sky top and villages as well as group activities in the bus to cheer up the trip. In general, it was a great day trip for our family. The price is slightly higher but worth it.

Peter our guide was very knowledgable and friendly. The trip was fun and interesting. Remember folks, if you enjoyed your trip, tips are appreciated! Sadly hardly anyone besides myself tipped Peter. It was a long day, and Peter was gracious and kept us safe the whole trip. Thank you Peter.

Too pricy for what you get. Only the gondola has an entrance fee. The rest in Whistler is on your own dime.
