Take in views of the waterfall or walk to a second viewing platform to view Daisy Lake and Black Tusk. Take an hour to soak up the spectacular sites and don't forget to keep an eye out for the rare red-tailed frog. Continue north along the Sea to Sky highway to the world-famous Whistler Village, a charming pedestrian-only village with something for everyone.

A worthwhile trip largely due to tour driver/guide Mark who saw to it that we enjoyed our trip to Whistler and all stops in between. It was a lovely clear day so we were able to make the most of the views. A bit sorry not to see snow but it was summer after all.

Excellent views! Well maintained and operated from the gondola to the trails, restaurant and washrooms. Our family of four was impressed and had an enjoyable experience.

We had a really great time with Leslie, our driver and tour guide. We spent lovely times @ Squamish and Whistler.

Our guide was awesome: Very knowledgeable and informative!

We loved our tour, never a dull moment! Took us everywhere we wanted to go. We have FUN!!

Mickie was a great guide, kept us on schedule, bus was comfortable

I will use your company again. The Excursion was worth what we paid.
