Good tour
Gabriel
, Jul 2021
Our tour guide, Joe, was great; super friendly and very knowledgeable. The tour itself is good. The stop at the waterfall is about 30 minutes which is all you need. Note that the ticket to go up the gondola is not included and it’s an extra $67 but it’s totally worth it. Some hiking is available once you go up and the views are spectacular.

July 2021 This tour is definitely worth taking. It’s a full day, which will give you a lot of time to see Whistler. You get to stop at Shannon falls which are gorgeous. Whistler itself is beautiful and the views from the top of Whistler mountain are incredible. But what really added to the trip was our tour guide ben. He was knowledge and telling stories on the way up to Whistler and back to Vancouver. He led us around the city and made sure we knew where everything was. He gave great advice on what to do with our time. He led us on a walk to a train wreck (which the suspension bridge is great. I would highly recommend this trip of you were thinking of going to Whistler. The organization made it really easy to get the most of the day.

Beautiful drive up to Whistler. You will want to sit on the driver's side of the bus going up so you can get a good view of the water and the islands. Lots of places to eat and shop in Whistler. You will want to do an activity up there. We did the Peak to Peak Gondola ride. It was lightly raining in Whistler, but it was snowing at the peaks. It was beautiful. We went from Whistler peak to Blackcomb peak. Went into the restaurant and got a hot chocolate. They put it in ceramic mugs and it really warms your hands. I would highly recommend the Peak to Peak. You can book your activities on the bus ride up.

Lovely day out

Whistler is a lovely place that I would highly recommend visiting. Tour guides were very nice, but it should be said that you're really just paying for the ride to and from the mountain. It's very much free time to yourself once you get there, which I personally enjoyed, but you may well be able to get a cheaper bus shuttle to and from Whistler and have the same experience.

I recommend this all day tour. The coach was spacious and big. Stopped off at Shannon waterfall to stretch and smell the nature air. Once we arrived at Whistler we were given recommendations of places to eat, drink, shop. Definitely would love to come back for a weekend trip.

It was a bit of a drive but the breathtaking views were more than i had hoped for. I would suggest getting the tickets for things like the gondola ride and other Whistler activities through your tour guide. It may be a little more expensive via the guide but it saves you waiting on long lines. If you get them in advance online, you'll probably just get a voucher and still have to wait on line to get the actual tickets.
