Fungus, and Waterfalls, and Bears, Oh My!

Yes, we had a good, long view of a bear. Yes, it was exciting! But not the most exciting part of the tour. We visited the majestic Alexander Falls, some amazing rapids, and a crystal clear lake. We saw a huge bee hive, beautiful fungi, and stunning forests. We even stopped to take photos of a yarn bomb. This was... More

The first ten minutes were spectacular. We had a great view of Alexander Falls and saw a rainbow over the valley. Although we went two full hours without seeing a bear, the last fifteen minutes made the search worth it! Our guide, Sarah, was friendly, informative and determined to get us a bear viewing. She took us on several routes... More

Extremely disappointed by our experience, I understand that there's a good chance on the tours that you may not see a bear even though it is advertised as a bear watching tour but I don't expect to be lied to by the person manning their phones. I meet a lot of locals in whistler who warned me not to go... More

We usually are very careful on booking tours , we do a lot of research and think ten times before we actually book. Especially my husband loves to play xplore everything by himself. we somehow dodged a bullet on this, it was a boring tour,just 2 hours sitting in a 4 wheel drive and trying to spot a bear. What...

We were all so excited to go and see bears! We were picked up promptly at hotel. We were then driven along the highway before turning off road and headed straight up to the top of the mountain. We passed several fast dirt buggies (very noisy) before reaching the top of the mountain. Got out for a snap. Then another... More

Very clever wording in the brochure had us a little prematurely excited about this tour. We did not see any animals, however we understand that was always a risk. It takes you a little out of whistler down roads I could have driven my self very easily. Save your self a significant amount of money and drive up and down... More

We where very excited about this tour and gave it a big thought before buying it as it is very expensive. Our tour guide was good at giving us information about the bears. The sad thing was that we never saw one... We drove along the highway and we did a little of backcountry stopping at a hut to take... More

Laura was an excellent guide! She was quite personable and was enthusiastic about the bears and excursion. Her background in biology helped make the experience.
