We are on a family vacation from Ontario with 8 of us in total. It was gorgeous weather the day we went to Whistler. I was disappointed when our little bus pulled up in front of our hotel. It had no bathroom but I quickly realized a bathroom was not needed because of the frequent stops it makes. However ,it is not a comfortable ride as we felt every bump in the road.
Our driver and guide ,Leslie , actually made the trip as successful as it was. He is a wealth of information and gave a running commentary on everything from Vancouvers history and culture to Canadas form of government. He pointed out many geological interests and was funny and entertaining.He even went as far as to take family photos for us and we felt he truly wanted us to enjoy the experience. Many thanks ,Leslie.
This is a fabulous trip to showcase the beauty of the mountains and sea on the awesome Sea to Sky highway.
Thanks West Coast Sightseeing.

It was a beautiful day! Our driver from Kevin from Grayline was excellent. He was a very informative, he has dead-pan humour, & he covered more than what was required. The bear hunt at Catlican Valley was a big big bonus as we saw 6-7 bears up close! On top of Shannon falls, Sea to Sky Gondala, Whistler (where he pointed out different stuff we could do) , detour to Catlican Valley, stop by Alexander falls, Porteau Cove etc… we were just so blessed to have him as our guide! Jason took us back to our hotel at Georgian court.. excellent driver with an excellent service!!! Thank you!

The tour provides pick up and drop off at your hotel. A short stop at Shannon Falls and it was beautiful! The Sea to Sky Gondola and suspension bridge was breathtaking and the facilities are top notch!! Whistler Village is huge and there is so much to do! We visited the Lost Lake for a quick dip in the refreshing waters then back to Whistler for souvenirs and food. Our Driver Alan could have rocked us to sleep with his smooth driving if it weren’t for the vivacious personality of our knowledgeable host Vinny!! This excursion is a must do for visitors to the area.

First I want to mention that our tour guide was Leslie, an Englishman who has settled down in the better city of Canada called Vancouver (as opposed to Toronto) :). I wanted to say this first before I forget because I picked up his card and I think I almost immediately lost it. He was excellent. He shared a lot of fun and exciting facts and was hilarious throughout (although I'll add that his explanation of parliamentary and governmental structure in Canada was incorrect and its comparison to US was incorrect. Specifically, Canada DOES in fact have three branches of government, like the US, only it works a bit differently. I should know. I am a lawyer). If he's curious who this is - I was the one wearing a LAKERS shirt and hat and was late in coming back from Shannon Falls and got booed.

Anyway, the man was funny as hell and kept us awake as we got tired in the latter part of the day. As for the trip itself, the Sea to Sky Highway was absolutely breathtaking, as were the views from the gondola up in Squamish. It would have been even more exciting had it been an open bus where we could see the sights as we were traveling, but it was still awesome.

Shannon Falls was terrific as well. I have lived 16 years in the US in four different states. I have been to Yellowstone, Niagara, Colorado, etc. But some of the sight I saw today was unmatched by any of those and it saddens me that BC does not get as much exposure as the US.

The whole trip was awesome and I was sad that it got over so quickly. It would have been nice if we had a little more time in Whistler to either do the mountain-top biking or the peak to peak gondola. We had to choose because of lack of time there. But hey, like I said, still fantastic trip overall and worth every penny.

I moved to Vancouver in April and live here now in BC. Today's trip has been attestation of my decision to move here. I love it here in BC and I loved this trip.

Excellent tour company, did Whistler tour with Alex McDougall on Saturday 16 April , brilliant tour guide/driver. He was like the school teacher you wish you'd had and his commentary was brilliant. At the several stops we made, he took personal ownership to ensure all 30 of us knew what was going on etc. The coach had big clean windows so you had a good view and the drive covered some scenic roads. Richard in their customer service is also a great chap and helpful when I rang for something. Would definitely recommend.

This was a full day but Vinny- woooo- and driver Max made it such a fun adventure! What a great sampling of Shannon Falls, Sea to Sky Gondola and Whistler Olympic Village. Ability to use washrooms, get snacks/lunch and drinks and to shop and sightsee at our leisure was wonderful. Shout out to driver Toni as well. At the end of the tour, some of us from select hotels were offloaded from the large bus to a smaller bus to maneuver downtown locations. I realized on our way back to hotel that I left a bag on the larger bus and Toni was able to recover it for me from the large bus. What a lifesaver!

This tour has just enough stops to sample beautiful British Columbia in a day. Stanley Falls we’re spectacular. The Sea to Sky Gondola was wow! 3 hours is not enough for Whistler but you would need months to explore

Our guide, Leslie, was knowledgeable and entertaining.

We enjoyed this trip. Our tour guide/bus driver was very knowledgeable about the areas we were travelling through. The scenery was spectacular!. Shannon falls is beautiful and the Seas to Sky Gondola Tour was a fun way to spend a couple hours. Whistler was a fun place to visit and walk around. The most fun we had though was when the driver took us "off road" a bit and we got to see a black bear!!! It was a great way to spend the day!

Alex picked us up promptly at our hotel. The small touring van was comfortable for the long drive. Alex narrated most of the way, pointing out scenery and sharing the rich geology, history and culture of the region. Sea to Sky Gondola was breathtaking. On a rainy day, we ascended from greenery to picture perfect snowscape 3 000 miles at the top. My southern California kids experienced snow! Just spectacular. We spent several hours at Whistler where Alex gave tips on where to eat and visit. On the way back we stopped at Shannon Falls which was magnificent even in the rain. Alex was a professional whose passion and knowledge made a truly memorable day trip.
