Me and my husband thoroughly enjoyed our time with West Coast sightseeing . We ported at Juneau which was beautiful. The tour guide himself was simply wonderful, his name was Heinz. He was very formative and therefore made our experience on the tour that much more special. Thank you!

We purchased a ticket that was to be good for 24 hours and the driver was never on time and today it was over a half hour late. Well 24 hours why they say that? The only way to do it is to go on the first bus which you expect to be on time and stay until the end... More

I really enjoyed having Westcoast sightseeing available in Downtown Calgary. From their I could book and join a number of sightseeing tours, including to Grouse Mountain and the gondola, Stanley Park, and various other important stops in Vancouver. Use them, and they will take care of all your touring needs - in local Vancouver, or further out

If you have masses of time in Vancouver this would be good orientation. But in all it is too long and the commentary if you can hear it was very boring. Highlights the bridge and Granville Island but the city tour was tedious. We have done many city tours and this really was the most boring. The guide although very... More

Not really a trip for a teenager. The coach was full of older people. The stops were short so that we couldn't take full advantage of the attractions. Our fault choosing the wrong tour. Perhaps a full day with longer time to explore might be better?

Shana and I can't put into words how thrilled we were to be riding on Jeff's bus. Jeff has a perspective, as a First Nations citizen, that other guides just wouldn't be able to share. His knowledge and understanding of the area made our trip from Vancouver proper down to Butchart Gardens and Victoria absolutely awesome. Can we give more... More

I was recently in Vancouver and took two day trips with WESTCOAST Sightseeing: Victoria + Butchart Gardens and Whistler + Shannon Falls. The Victoria + Butchart Gardens tour was a longer day - we were picked up by 7:30 am, and then the bus drove to the ferry terminal. We took the ferry across to Victoria, and then drove to... More

I used Westcoast on two different days. The first was to take the ferry to Victoria. We went to Buchert gardens which were phenomenal. Then on to the city of Victoria. Our guide and driver was Shapoor and he was great. He was pleasant, professional and very knowledgeable. I highly recommend this tour company.

This was by far one of the best sightseeing trips we have ever been on. I would recommend this excursion to any first time traveler to Vancouver. Our tour guides were outstanding. Andy,Mike(he was hilarious),and Terry(former Mounted Police Officer), went out of their way to make our tour enjoyable.
