    We where picked up by our driver/ tour guide Mike on time. He was very informative on the lovely drive to Shannon Falls and sea to sky gondola. I would have given this 5 stars but I felt we did not have enough time in the falls or gondola. Whistler was lovely but 4+ hours was too long in my opinion. All in all a terrific day

    This was a varied and interesting day, complete with exceptional bus commentary. The stops along the way were just right and Whistler was very interesting. Not all lifts were operational but there was plenty to do in the village.

    The driver/guide and the pickup were both good. Sea To Sky Gondola was a great experience and I got lots of nice pictures. The time at Whistler could have been cut a little bit for me. The weather was a little chilly for an Aussie, and not much shelter outside of the shops.

    The gondola and water fall were excellent. I would not recommend anyone go to Whistler village. All it is a lot of walking and only all souvenirsvwhich are very costly. Every store we went to the price of the same item got higher and higher in price. It is especially not for seniors as to much walking and no where to sit. The best thing was the Hot Bun restaurant where we got a pastry. It rained all day so was doubly not enjoyable. We had to find places we could go in, sit and stay warm.

    Office change pickup plan without telling passengers.

    Not a happy trip as expected. Due to snow, the first stop(waterfall) was skipped. Slow traffic made we reach Whistler late, so Whistler stop is shorter than expected(3 hours instead of 4 hours) If all these above can be considered as weather related, check this: Driver told us the pickup time to went back to Vancouver would be 5:15PM, and we agreed about it. Apparently, someone found they have an event afterwards, and called office saying they want to delay the pickup time to 5:30PM. Office never spend any effort to notify other passengers about the change. So we wait in bus for extra time doing nothing. The driver was professional and made a safe trip for all of us, and he followed the safe practice to ask people wear masks. I want to thank him for that. But I’m not happy with the office not respecting our time, and would NOT recommend this tour.
    icon Response from Host , Dec 2021
    Thank you for your feedback. The departure time for this tour has always been 6:00pm from Whistler. I'm not sure why the driver made the decision to change it to 5:15pm. Passengers usually book an activity knowing that they have 4 hours of free time in Whistler. In this case, we had passengers booked an activity within the tours time frame. We apologize for the inconvenience and we will discuss this with the driver.

    The gondola and suspension bridge were great. Unfortunately it poured rain during our visit to Whistler but it did not dampen our spirits. Worth a return visit
