After hotel pickup in Vancouver, travel north with your guide aboard a luxury coach toward Whistler. The route along Highway 99, the Sea-to-Sky corridor, offers plenty of gorgeous scenery that makes for a memorable journey.


Your route begins at sea level and tracks the shore along Howe Sound. Stop in Squamish and ride the Sea-to-Sky Gondola, a 90-minute aerial experience offering spectacular views of Howe Sound, coastal forests, and the Squamish River. At the Summit Lodge, 2,900 feet (885 meters) above sea level, relax and enjoy the views, perhaps with a beer or snack (own expense). Or, embark on one of the nearby trails, one of which includes a suspension bridge.

Your next stop along the Sea-to-Sky corridor is Brandywine Falls, situated between Garibaldi Heights and Whistler. Spend an hour here to watch the falls’ 230-foot (70-meter) drop, as well as Daisy Lake, from the large viewing platform.


Once you reach Whistler Village, enjoy four hours to explore this bustling village on your own. Choose from an array of activities and attractions, and feel free to ask your guide for recommendations. Your trip concludes with return transport to your original departure point.

Office change pickup plan without telling passengers.
, Dec 2021
Not a happy trip as expected. Due to snow, the first stop(waterfall) was skipped. Slow traffic made we reach Whistler late, so Whistler stop is shorter than expected(3 hours instead of 4 hours) If all these above can be considered as weather related, check this: Driver told us the pickup time to went back to Vancouver would be 5:15PM, and we agreed about it. Apparently, someone found they have an event afterwards, and called office saying they want to delay the pickup time to 5:30PM. Office never spend any effort to notify other passengers about the change. So we wait in bus for extra time doing nothing. The driver was professional and made a safe trip for all of us, and he followed the safe practice to ask people wear masks. I want to thank him for that. But I’m not happy with the office not respecting our time, and would NOT recommend this tour.

Thank you for your feedback. The departure time for this tour has always been 6:00pm from Whistler. I'm not sure why the driver made the decision to change it to 5:15pm. Passengers usually book an activity knowing that they have 4 hours of free time in Whistler. In this case, we had passengers booked an activity within the tours time frame. We apologize for the inconvenience and we will discuss this with the driver.
Great day out and a must do while in Vancouver

The gondola and suspension bridge were great. Unfortunately it poured rain during our visit to Whistler but it did not dampen our spirits. Worth a return visit
Picturesque views.

Had a lovely time despite the fact the day we went the weather wasn't great. Loved the Sea to Sky Gondola and Whistler itself.....although you don't need 4hrs there. Also the trip to Brandywine Falls is unnecessary too.

Our driver, Mick was definitely value added, good information, kept us in schedule and safe driver. It was a interesting taste of the sea to sky highway and Whistler. Definitely recommend this tour.
Memorable day

I did this day trip yesterday and i loved it! It was an amazing trip that permits you to see other then vancouver in one day. Summer time, 4 hours in whistler is to much but winter time must be amazing. The sea to sky gondola is amazing

Great, but…
, Sep 2021
Always a pleasure exploring beautiful BC but I will say the Whistler portion of this tour was disappointing. A lot of shops / restaurants were closed / closed down (which I completely understand in the times we are in) and the peak to peak gondola was closed for maintenance (which I didn’t know prior and would have loved to experience that). 4 hours of browsing around at expensive shops and walking some trails being mindful of the time so didn’t go far was boring to me. Just not what I expected. I’m grateful for the experience but likely would have spent my money on other excursions if I’d known.
Great day, Brent was the best tour guide ever!
, Sep 2021
The tour guide we had, Brent, was so amazing! Knowledgeable and friendly and went out of his way to make sure everyone had a good time. 10/10 would recommend. A long day but we’ll worth the money and the gondola is an amazing experience. You won’t be disappointed!
