review of Meghan our tour leader
, Jan 2022
Great Guide , Great Leadership, Knowledge Hospitality, fare price and a very safe driver. Meghan was overall s terrific guide and person.
I Recommend the tour but do enquire about all activities at the village.
, Dec 2021
The ride to whistler was beautiful. The driver Ian was very good and helpful. The bus was comfortable and neat. Overall the experience with Discover Canada Tours was good. However, the major drawback bas weather. It was -20 in the village and all activities that were pre booked like 360 peak to peak or even the shannon falls were canceled. Due to this i had to spend around 4 hrs sitting in a hotel lobby. What I would highly recommend is a timely update on the activities being canceled so that a person can plan accordingly, as one entire day was wasted for me.
icon Response from Host , Dec 2021
Hello, Thank you for your feedback. We are happy to hear that your overall experience on our tour was good and that Ian was helpful. Unfortunately, the weather is out of our control and the closure of Shannon Falls is as well. Shannon Falls is a weather permitting stop which is stated in our tour description so due to the weather conditions it was closed. Whistler is a mountain village and known for having very unpredictable weather conditions in Winter and these conditions can change within hours. Unfortunately, the mountain and other activity companies decided to close because it wasn't safe with these extreme temperatures, and we don't get this information until we arrive in Whistler.

The breathtaking views of the mountains and all of nature. The drive to Whistler was amazing. However, the guide sounded muffled and their were some tourist talking over the guide.

The tour and the tour guide was very good. However, for the amount charged the transport (coach) could have been better. the Coach was full and very uncomfortable.
