I took my husband and three teenagers. Gavin was funny and knowledgeable. We learned a lot about the area as we drove up and back, and Whistler itself was beautiful and fun.

The most memorable experience of our trip was Shannon Falls & Whistler Village, beautiful landscape and a gorgeous waterfall. We had an amazing tour guide, he was a walking textbook of Vancouver’s history & a great driver! We thoroughly enjoyed the experience, we only had one day for a tour. Also the shuttle driver arrived early & waited patiently, he communicated every detail of what to expect. The phone representative was very kind & answered all of our questions. Best of all they provided drop-off service to the airport for a minimum fee.

Amazing time! Our tour guide was Tim, they were super funny, and had lots of amazing facts and stories to tell on the way. The tour route itself was great, many stops to take pictures and see different sights not directly listed in the itinerary but that were on the way. Wish we had a bit more time in Whistler though.

Tour guide Dave was knowledgeable and provided a lot of commentary. He was a friendly guy, good conversationalist and gave good tips for our time in Whistler. Unfortunately, Shannon Falls was closed for the day. The replacement stop was Horseshoe Bay but there wasn't a whole lot to do there except grab a coffee. On the day we had only 5 tourists so they kept their word about it being a small group tour. Whistler was the highlight of the day. But I wish we had more than 4 hours there. Going on the peak to peak, and then to the cultural exhibition took up the entire block. I did not have time to explore the rest of the village or even get lunch. Still, that gondola is a must see experience. If you're not skiing I would suggest going in the summer.

Casey was a great driver! It was nice to stop at Shannon falls and then we had all day in whistler. There were plenty of options for things to do in the day. We opted to take the gondola peak to peak and had lunch at Christine’s

Whistler in the Winter
Joan_S
, Feb. 2020
The tour and Mikey, our driver and guide, was excellent. He coped cheerfully with my unexpected bad back (75 and feeling it!) and the weather. I'm a writer so to lots of notes from his commentary - as he said it's February and rain and extensive cloud cover are to be expected. He worked in several toilet stops en route. I took the tour because I wanted to see mountains in snow but most were shrouded in mist and a few white tops. The ski runs were open and there are suspended gondolas available but I don't think any of our small group went on the Peak to Peak though there would have been time to do it. Whistler is pretty but not alpine. No need for snow gear in the winter village. Flat paving and not slippy with railings at each small set of steps and alternative accessible paths. The tour stays 4 hours and there are several centres to explore. It has a good book shop that sells local newspapers - handy as I moved slowly from coffee shop to coffee shop. It was interesting and I'd recommend it.

One of the best tours ever!

This tour was simply terrific! The stop at Shannon Falls was amazing. A simply beautiful waterfall. Then Whistler Village ... wow! Perfectly designed for tourists to explore. Olympic Square, including the Rings, amazing outdoor skating rink, lots of shops, restaurants and watering holes. And you get plenty of time to check it all out. Our guide, Randi, was very informative and entertaining. She made sure there was never a dull moment the whole day. I would highly recommend this tour to everyone!

We had Hanson as our tour guide and he was great overall. Lots of things to do in Whistler despite the winter weather. Peak 2 Peak was open this time and it was the highlight of our visit. Shannon Falls and other scenic area we stopped along the way was also nice. They also dropped us off the airport after the trip and made sure we won't miss our flight (as this was our last day in Vancouver). So that was extra special for us. I will recommend this to my friends!

Landsea yours already knew that all attractions and services where closed at Whistler in Nov 9 and they allowed the trip

Landsea yours already knew that all attractions and services where closed at Whistler in Nov 9 and they allowed the trip. Due to the transition from summer to winter everything was almost closed like the gondola and the landsea company was just interested for charging the money , the trip was super boring
