Hi Debbie P, Thank you for taking the time to review your Whistler & Shannon Falls tour with us. It is great to hear that you enjoyed your trip up to Whistler Village, Shannon Falls is spectacular at this time of year as there is so much water running down from the mountains. We have to agree, Ed is a great tour guide, he is full of so many fun facts and always manages to make guests laugh. We hope you can make it back to Vancouver soon! Warm Regards, Tessa J Guest Services Supervisor

Hi 34richb, We appreciate you taking the time to review us! We're glad you felt safe on the scenic ride along the Sea to Sky Highway. Greg has been guiding for over 10 years and excels at driving on those coastal rainy days. We love the dusting of snow on the mountain tops at this time of year. We hope you can visit again soon!
