“Great time on ATVs and learned alot”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2013

Took an ATV ride on Whistler. It was a great first experience in learning how to ride one and what a great view. We saw two black bears and learned extensively about the history of Whistler and the surrounding regions. Would definitely repeat. Georgie's energy is infectious....Definitely, I would take another tour with the same company.

Cheers.

“Great few hours of fun on the ATV”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2013

We did the 3 hour ATV trip and it was really good fun. I'd never ridden one before but it was not difficult to get used to. The guides were friendly and safely conscious at all times.

Great views from the mountain and a good adrenaline rush.

Only complaint is the sneaky $20 additional mandatory insurance charge. If it is mandatory it should be included in the base price.

Hello Dave,

Thank you so much for joining us on our Call of the Wild ATV Tour! I am glad you had fun. I do apologize that you were not made aware of the $20 Mandatory Collision Coverage fee upon booking. I try my best to educate all our resellers and front desk agents to mention this prior to booking. As to why it is not included in the base price is that for those guests who go as double riders sometimes only one person drives, or both want to take a turn driving. This is why it is an additional fee. However, I am sorry that this was not communicated to you and I will work on ensuring that in the future it is mentioned upon booking.

Thank you again for joining us and we hope you join us again!

Cheers,

Brittia

“TAG adventures were FANTASTIC!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2013

We walken in and Terry was more than helpfull booking the tour that best suited us. She was very knowledgeable about all of the tours available in Whistler and how they compared. All of the staff were fun, and the Zip-lining had the best views. Not somthing you would want to check out if you have a fear or heights, but we defiantly felt safe and had a blast. Next time we're in town we will be back. We had a great time!

“ATV experience at Whistler”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2013

Hi
My wife and I just returned from a weekend at Whistler and rented ATV's thru Canadian Wilderness Adventures. We ended up having a private guide ( whose name was Georgie) and she was a great guide!!! She took us on an amazing 2 hour trek up the mountain and showed us amazing views and we went on really fun terrain! We saw 4 bears along the way up the mountain and had such a great time and would totally return again.

“Great Snowshoe on The Medicine Trail”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2013

Even though it was the tail end of the season, we had a great time snowshoeing (our first time) on The Medicine Trail. We had a thoroughly knowledgable and enjoyable guide Melanie. It felt like being guided by an old friend (who just happened to know a lot more than we did!). The scenery was beautiful and learning about the plants and how they are used medicinally was very cool (the homemade mushroom/lichen tea was wonderful too!). I would highly recommend this trip to people who are used to being active. It's not too strenuous, but isn't for the couch potato crowd either.
