    Highly recommend! I thought there would be nothing new from the gondolas but realized that I was totally wrong the moment I stood in the sea-to-sky cable. And the whister‘s are even better! Love the peak chair to the cloud beige especially. Our guide Brant was very helpful and gracious.

    Excellent! Our driver Jim was amazing. He was so knowledgable and interesting. I have never had such a good time on a tour. The tour itself was great too. The stops at Shannon falls and the Sea to Sky gondola were amazing, and still left us with plenty of time to explore Whistler

    Stopped at great locations, with good timing at each stop. Tour guide was knowledgeable and friendly, but sometimes I felt that he talked for a long time about small things e.g. speed limits.

    The driver was very a great guide. The panoramic views are magnificent. The only downside is the Whistler village. There’s nothing interesting there, especially roaming around for 3 hours. The foods are not that great. Nothing extraordinary compared to eating in Downtown.

    This was a good tour, the driver was very informative right from pickup. A little hiccup with the bus as we got out of Vancouver but a replacement bus was organised very quickly, we really didn’t mind. We were offered extra time at Whistler for the inconvenience. The Sea to Sky Gondola was awesome with the suspension bridge, beautiful views, nice cafe. We weren’t lucky with the weather at Whistler, cold and wet afternoon but nevertheless we enjoyed walking around browsing the shops and galleries. Would definitely recommend it.

    Loved the views - the waterfall and whistler village we’re my favorite places. Driver was very informative about the area and helpful answering questions The view from the gondola was exceptionally beautiful. Our pickup and drop off was acceptable the pickup was and a little early but a little late at drop off because of fireworks event that night in town. Traffic was terrible once in Vancouver. All in all I did enjoy the full trip. I would highly recommend to others if they had a full day in Vancouver.

    It was a lovely day in July 2022. The day started out as sunny although the dark clouds loomed in the distance. Nonetheless, we were ready for a fine time. Our tour guide and bus driver was Brent. He was welcoming, friendly, and professional. We set off from downtown Vancouver for the Sea to Sky Gondola Tour as scheduled. Brent was excellent on the bus ride. He was knowledgeable about the place and vicinity and provided historical facts. It was an outstanding tour even though we had a bit of drizzle. It was manageable. We highly recommend this tour and we will do it again.

    For spectacular scenery a visit to Whistler is a must, adding on the Sea to Sky Gondola is a really good bonus. Be prepared to pay the extra to ride the gondolas in Whistler, the views are amazing.

    I was nervous booking this experience because I read a review that said the pick up process was difficult but I did not have any difficulties at all! However I will say that I am young, tech savvy and able to easily walk. I can see how if you do not know how to use a phone or unable to walk far, it might be a problem for you. I received a call the day before asking which pick up point I was going to so they could account for me. I arrived 15 minutes earlier and asked each tour bus there if it was mine but it was not. At exactly 9am, a bus came labelled Centrail, which when I asked the driver, was Pacific Coach. Brent was our driver. He drove smoothly and was a plethora of knowledge! He definitely made the trip enjoyable. He also brought drinks in a cooler for our convenience! The tour bus was comfortable with many amenities such as outlets and overhead compartments. Unfortunately, no wifi. I get car sick but I didn't feel sick on the bus and I appreciated the cool air conditioning. After every stop, Brent made sure to account for everyone and even called them if they were late. The Sea to sky gondola ride was $62 which is included in your ticket price. We also stopped in Squamish to see Shannon Falls which is an easy walk to get to. There are many hiking trails at the Sea to Sky Gondola that you can enjoy. You get 4 hours in Whistler. I would do some research and prepare before you go because if you wanted to do a canoe excursion or ATV ride, you need to book it right when you come or ahead of time since they leave at specific times. After a long day of adventures, it doesn't get any better than to have someone drive you back home while you relax. Worth every penny! I would recommend to anyone especially people who like nature!
