We had Hanson as our tour guide and he was great overall. Lots of things to do in Whistler despite the winter weather. Peak 2 Peak was open this time and it was the highlight of our visit. Shannon Falls and other scenic area we stopped along the way was also nice. They also dropped us off the airport after the trip and made sure we won't miss our flight (as this was our last day in Vancouver). So that was extra special for us. I will recommend this to my friends!

We were met promptly at our hotel at the promised time to begin our tour. The tour guide from Land sea Tours was very informative on the local history as well as what we could expect from the various options once we got to Whistler. We chose to take the gondola up to the top of Whistler. While somewhat cold, the view and surrounding vistas were just fantastic! I would highly recomend this tour. Of special interest was the sop at various waterfalls along the route, incredible! We were back at our hotel on time after a great day. As a native of Vancouver, our tour guide was very friendly and knew the local history of the area.

We had a great tour with Ed. Arrangements went smoothly. Breathtaking drive up the Sea to Sky highway. Fortunately, we had great weather. My husband's favorite was the waterfall, mine was sitting on the upper deck at the end of the peak to peak gondola, enjoying a glass of BC Merlot, surrounded by spectacular views of the mountains. Highly recommend this tour.

I throughly recommend this activity, having stayed in the city I wanted to experience another party of what Canada could offer. My tour guide Nadeem was excellent and his knowledge of all places visited was brilliant.... please if your thinking of doing this trip then do so as you will not be disappointed

We had a great driver who grew up in Vancouver so he was able to point out a lot of interesting facts and points of interest along the way. They are shooting several TV shows along our route and several roads were blocked off and he knew how to get around the blockage without us having to wait in traffic. We saw 2 beautiful waterfalls along the way and were able to stop and take pictures. Once in Whistler we had the right amount of time to see the town and do the peak to peak gondola ride. While the day was long it went by very fast.

This trip is perfect to visit Whistler in a day. You get see wonderfull views all the way to Whistler, with a couple stops to take pictures. You’ll have 4h of free time in Whistler village and the mountain, which could be longer since there’s so many activites to do. Our guide Erich explained the different main attractions of the mountain. He also explained the story of the different places we saw on the way to Whistler. Overall, if you want to visit Whistler in a day and have time to enjoy the way there, this is a perfect tour for you.

Our guide, Tim, was kind, knowledgeable, and fun and told us lots of interesting stats and corny jokes that we enjoyed! We had fun all the way up and back! We saw a bear and a beautiful waterfall---3rd highest in British Columbia (but maybe the best)!

I really enjoyed the ride to and from Whistler Mt. our guide was informative and considerate of our needs. Four hours of free time in Whistler is a bit long. I took the Peak 2 Peak Gondola ride - amazing views!! I should have gone to the indigenous people museum.

This was a fantastic trip that will be remembered for a long while. We were fortunate, however, that the weather turned on its best for us. Our guide, Steve, was great one of the best I have had on any excursion. He was informative, protective of his passengers and most entertaining. Taking the gondola ride up to the top of the mountain is a must-do. It is amazing and you see stunning scenery on the way up and even better scenery once you are there.

This is a perfect way to get out of the City and up into the mountains. Wolf was our driver and tour guide. He was the perfect mix of guiding and letting us be. We stopped at beautiful Shannon Falls on our way up and then ended up with the full afternoon in wonderful Whistler. If you want to do one of the optional activities while in Whistler, make sure you bring the right clothing. We rode the Peak to Peak gondola with a non skiing ticket and it was magnificent. Whistler is a gem. You do have the option to stay a night or two and come back wit the next day's tour. I would consider this.

We had a fantastic day on our trip to Vancouver. Tim our tour guide was extremely knowledgeable about all areas between Vancouver and Whistler, filling us in about information from the history of the area to the natural wonders. We did the Peak 2 Peak gondola and were astounded by the vast beauty of Whistler, having only ever been to ski field in NSW, Australia. We highly recommend the Landsea Tours group day trip to Whistler.We didn't wear enough layers or warm enough shoes, beanies or gloves for this day, so be prepared for the cold. It was -7 deg in the Whistler Village and much colder once you're at the top.Even though we couldn't feel our toes until we got back on the bus, it was the most amazing, spectacular experience to start our year-long adventure in Canada.

We got to see 2 waterfalls, stopped to take photos of the mountain peaks and spent 4 hours in beautiful, colorful Whistler Village. We love the Cultural Center a lot.

Enjoyed this small-group trip very much. Megan was a great guide and we enjoyed her commentary during the journey. The peak-to-peak gondola ride was amazing and we even got to see a bear! Would recommend taking this trip.

We selected this tour on a visit to Vancouver in April 2018. We travelled up to Whistler with a few stops along the way, each of which proved to be a memorable feature of the day. Our driver was very friendly and had great knowledge of the area somwe had plenty of interesting commentary. Whistler itself is well worth a visit and although we visited at the end of the winter sports season there was plenty of snow at the top of the mountain. The ride up to the peak on a gondola was a great experience - make sure you have warm clothing even when its warm in the village! I would certainly recommend this day trip!
