I recently rode West Coast Sightseeing’s tour of Vancouver and the Capilano suspension bridge, and every minute of the 5-hour tour was a fabulous experience, thanks mainly to our guide/driver Rick. He is full of interesting information, spoken very articulately, and with insight, humour or passion, appropriate to what we were seeing at a given moment. Also important: During his... More

Booked the Butchart Garden tour with the company online. Tour bus picked us up promptly, tour guide and driver Mike was fabulous, funny and informative. The gardens were amazing, the ferry ride pleasant. The chowder on the ferry was good. Had lunch at Milestones on the waterfront in Victoria get their original Bellini you won't be disappointed. Long day but... More

Routine trip via ferry to Buchart Gardens and downtown Victoria exceeded my expectations due to the excellent narration from our driver Mike. We had just got back from an Alaskan cruise where we did our share of bus tours, but this one was by far the best because of the driver guide. Also appreciated the fact that it was a... More

We has a great tour with Mike, our driver/tour guide. He was a wealth of knowledge as we left downtown Vancouver through to Whistler. We stopped for a bathroom and coffee break and also a photo opportunity. On the return as the weather cleared, we stopped at Shannon Falls and did a small detour as time permitted to hopefully sight... More

I have just taken this company's day trip to Whistler from Vancouver and cannot recommend it highly enough. The company is punctual, reliable and the tour is well organised. There is enough time to fully appreciate everything Whistler has to offer but there are also several other points of interest put into the day's programme to break the journey and... More

Vancouver is a gorgeous city and should be seen with a professional guide. However, I'd try another provider. West Coast Sightseeing vehicle was small and uncomfortable. The pick up procedure was painfully long before the actual tour began. The driver was only OK. He repeated himself constantly. He had to tell us multiple times he was the only First Nation... More

Terry was our guide to Butchart park and Victoria. It was a day long tour that started at 7am and finished at 9pm. However, Terry kept it lighthearted and informative. Glad we signed up for it!
