First of all thank you to Greg our tour guide chauffeur first class. Even chucked in an extra stop for me.
The bus was clean tidy punctual the route was excellently planned out the amount of time at each destination was ideal Greg’s knowledge was incredible and value for money.
The weather was so hot for October and sunshine all day but we had aircon that’s handy.
Door to door service for the smaller bus
I can’t thank you enough.

Had an amazing time! Tim M was our guide and he was so friendly and extremely knowledgeable. Shannon Falls was beautiful and we had lots of time to explore Whistler. Tim also recommended Purebread bakery in Whistler village which we'd highly recommend! Difficult to pick a highlight, just an overall amazing day!

So glad we booked this tour! It made the most out of a day trip to Whistler. I liked the size of the group and the smaller van with large windows as opposed to the giant tour buses. Good scenic stops along the way. We had the right amount of time in Whistler. Appreciated our driver Greg being so nice and helpful to everyone on the tour- he went above and beyond. I thought the company does a great job and wish we had booked their Victoria tour on this vacation also.

Honestly, I didn’t enjoy the trip too much and not exactly sure what I paid $185 AUD each for. A lot of money for not much service. My partner and I caught a taxi to a hotel to be picked up which was on time and all good. We then swapped buses to a different guide. You could barely hear the guide on the bus and he didn’t really tell very many interesting facts other then saying “trees each salmon” a lot of times. We had some very loud guest on the bus too which was more what everyone heard. We had 1 bathroom stop on the way at a boat ramp and continued straight up to Whistler. Once we were in Whistler they drop you off and tell you to meet you back at the bus in 5 hours. Almost all of the activities the guide talked about us doing were not operational such as the gondolas. Whistler is absolutely beautiful and although all anyone did on our tour this day was walk around and have lunch for 5 hours…it was very easy to kill time there in Whistler and very pretty to see. Once on the bus most people slept until we stopped at Shannon falls for probably 20 minutes, we struggled with time to go look around and go to the bathroom to be back on the bus…it was very rushed. The trip to and from Whistler is very picturesque but do wish we could have stopped along the way for photos. You can get a shuttle from downtown Vancouver to Whistler for $40 return. I do feel like we wasted a lot of money on this tour for pretty much the same thing. It wasn’t very well guided and the bus was pretty much a shuttle anyways that just dropped you at Whistler and left you for the day. Nothing was included. Before booking consider what extra you will gain from doing this “guided” tour or just catching the shuttle bus.

Hello, Thank you for taking the time to review. We have taken your review into consideration and are adding the Sea to Sky Gondola as a stop on the Whistler Tour, in addition to the Shannon Falls stop. We do provide commentary along the way from a local guide. The guide will share stories about the history and culture of the area. Thank you for joining us and we hope the rest of your stay in Vancouver was enjoyable.

This was a wonderful day. Gavin, our tour guide, was friendly, funny and helpful. The scenery was wonderful. Even with a mild fear of heights, I did the suspension bridge and Peak to Peak. The view was worth it. Even the walk back up (although it was a little tough at times because of its steep incline) was worth it.

Great drive and our driver Brett was helpful and well informed. He provided clear advice and put up with some pain in the ass passengers. He knew his stuff and drove fast but safely where possible. The bus was comfortable and Brett kept us on schedule despite an accident delaying traffic.

Richard was our driver for this tour. Picked up on time, nice relaxing drive with a couple of pit stops for restroom breaks and photo opportunities. Plenty of tips about what to see and do up at Whistler. The cultural centre entry was included. Had approximately 4 hours up at Whistler, great atmosphere and plenty of pubs and food outlets. Opted for the peak pie for lunch (aussie pie, with mashed peas, potatoes and smothered in gravy - thanks for the tip Richard). Stopped off at Shannon Falls on the way back which was great. It was a long day, but very easy when all the driving and stress of traffic is on someone else.

To start out the tour pick up 30 mins late with no contact from company it wasn't until we called we were let known they were running late.

We also found out once we got on board any activities at Whistler were an extra fee. There was no actual tour in Whistler which was fine but would have been nice to know ahead of time.
They did offer a good range of activities that would appeal to a wide variety of people at slightly below cost.

The Shannon falls part of the tour was also closed at the time so we did not get to go there either which again would have been nice to know ahead of time because it was one of the reasons we booked this tour.

The tour guide was very knowledgeable and kept the drive fun. The scenery was beautiful and we did enjoy our time in Whistler. And it was nice not to have to drive and just enjoy the scenery.

I would recommend putting more information on their tripadvisor ad or a link to their brochure which was done up very nicely with all the information and better communication with purchasers.

Hello Jackie M, Thank you for taking the time to offer your feedback about your touring experience with us, we sincerely appreciate it. I am happy to hear you enjoyed your time in Whistler, and felt that our guide was informative and enhanced your touring experience. Based on our guests feedback, we find that most guests enjoy the amount of free time we allot in Whistler to explore as they wish. I do hope you were able to visit and enjoyed the Squamish Lil'wat Cultural Centre in Whistler, which is included on our tour. Regarding Shannon Falls, there are days over the winter months where access can be closed due to excess snow and ice, deeming it unsafe. When this occurs, our guides will stop across the street from Shannon Falls for a photo opportunity. I was concerned reading your comment about our delayed pick up time at your hotel, as this is not the level of service we normally deliver or pride ourselves on. I reviewed our route report from this day to see what happened, and can see a longer than normal wait for guests at another hotel, which did impact the scheduled pick up time at your hotel. I do agree with you that we should have called your hotel to advise of our delayed arrival, so please accept my apologies we did not. If you would like to reach out to me directly to discuss your experience further, I can be reached at karen@vancouvertours.com. I look forward to hearing from you. Kind regards, Karen Lewis General Manager Landsea Tours & Adventures

This is our review on our day trip to Whistler on March 22, 2018 - Our tour guide/driver was Brent and he was on time to pick us up. He gave us pretty good educational knowledge of the First Nation and other information regarding the natives. Had a wonderful time, though it was snowing when coming up near Whistler, but it was still a beautiful experience.. Will definitely use their company and I recommend them highly.

I don’t usually write reviews for day tours but this day tour has impressed me so much, especially with our tour guide Sarah who was absolutely amazing. In the tour, we stopped at Porteau, Shannon Falls, Squamish and Tantalus Lookout. We got up to Whistler before noon and Sarah gave us a very detailed explanation of how it works there and what restaurants she would recommend. She was really friendly, approachable and knowledgeable with the places she showed us. In addition, praises should be given how well-organised Landsea Tours was. But just a reminder that the sightseeing tickets up to the peaks (Blackcomb Mountain and the Whistler Peak) are not included and that costs $65.
