      On a rainy day in Whistler……
      Very nice guided tour from Ryan Powell. Nicely details and it was really a shame not to have stayed longer in Whistler, but we will come back for sure.

      Worth every penny
      My husband, daughter-in-law, 4 month old grandson, and I went on this tour while in Whistler. We all found it very informative and interesting. The tour guide was named Ryan and he did a wonderful job of explaining the history of the area as well as sharing his knowledge of the Village itself. He made accommodations for the stroller along the way and was welcoming to all the people on the tour making sure to personally visit with everyone. It was a great way to start our trip to the area, so that we could better plan our itineraries for the rest of our stay. I highly recommend this tour.

      Great way to start our vacation
      Ryan was super knowledgeable. The pace of our walking tour was family friendly. Learning all about Whistler at the start of our trip was great. It helped us understand the village layout, history of the town, and maximize our trip.

      Tour with Ryan on "Day 1" in Whistler.
      We were in Whistler attending a conference. Ryan introduced us to areas and sights that were not offered thru our group coordinators. During our time with Ryan, we gained knowledge of Whistler and we definitely plan to return someday and explore even more. And we circled back on his recommendation and tried the Hopper Pie at Peaked Pies and the coffee was amazing!

      Whistler Sightseeing Tour - Worth It
      We were looking for something low key to do at Whistler because my wife could not ski this time. It was one of the best things we did. Ryan has lived and worked in Whistler for over a decade and knows so much about the history of the place, insider tips and the great places to visit not only in Whistler Village, Upper Village, Creekside but all over the valley. So we came away with a bag full of ideas of how to spend our remaining time at Whistler. He picked us up at our hotel. He was on time, friendly, down to earth, genuine and a really good conversationalist. As tourists we had a lot of questions and he answered every single one. It was 3 hours well-spent and a great activity to do on a weekend or if you just want a rest day from ski-ing or snowboarding. Thanks Ryan! James and Thu

      Fun, friendly and informative tour
      Ryan was very friendly, informative, helpful and fun. I’m on crutches at the moment due to a ski accident and Ryan was very accommodating to what I could/couldn’t do and adapted the tour accordingly. It’s a great tour, your see so much of the valley and also hear some very interesting stories, would highly recommend.

      Highly recommend for a different Friday night
      We were collected at our door on a snowy evening by Ryan who used the 10 minute ride to chat about ourselves, give us some local orientation and break the ice for our group. The host at the immaculately clean distillery (oh wow what splendid machinery) was knowledgeable, warm and friendly, and the spirit tasting was a revelation (with really good charcuterie).

      Ryan was an amazing tour guide! He took such good care of us and helped us to learn so much about the area. I would definitely recommend this tour if you want to familiarize yourself with all of Whistler. It was a wonderful experience and one that we will go on again!

    Tour was overall informative and a good way to see the local area in Whistler. However the tour felt very rushed - I arrived for 9am on the dot (as mentioned both on all the confirmation emails and ticket email), however I received multiple phone calls from Ryan asking where I was even before the hour.

    When I arrived he said it 'clearly stated in the ticket so arrive 10 mins before'. I have since checked this thoroughly and there is absolutely no mention of this anywhere. This meant I had a very stressful start to the day which was disappointing and could not enjoy the tour fully. He even said 'dont worry, you aren't in trouble!' Which not only was unprofessional but frankly patronising as a paying customer.

    Moreover, despite us starting on time (9am) Ryan seemed to rush through all the content and it felt very scripted. It sounded like he was reading it off a sheet. Moreover, I did not feel that he put effort in to really get to know our group. There were only 4 of us, so this would not have been difficult. It felt more like tick box exercise, driving us to each location, then quickly having us move on without putting in much thought or care into our experience. I was frankly quite disappointed as I had paid over £60 for a 3 hour experience and the reviews seemed to be very good.

    We did see some good views e.g. of the local lakes, however this could have been accessed by bus or taxi for a fraction of the cost.

    I would have appreciated a more tailored, thoughtful approach, without the element of rushing people around when they are on vacation. As such, I would not recommend this service unfortunately.

    Thank you for taking the time to review your experience and we appreciate that you mention it was overall informative and a good way to see the local area in Whistler. We’re sorry to hear you felt it was only worthy of two stars. We’ve since talked with our guide and he has assured us that he was not trying to make you feel rushed or patronized in any way. The call a few minutes prior was made as a courtesy in case you were having trouble finding the starting location(We ask all of our guides to do this when it’s getting close to departure times as it’s often helpful to people) and the comment, a light joke/ice breaker in an attempt to make you feel at ease as he walked you to over the shuttle. As for the tour feeling rushed/scripted, we agree that our tours do run fairly quickly and have a lot of info packed into them. The idea is to do a lot in 3 hours by covering Whistler’s sights/facts/history/happenings in hopes that guests walk away with a better idea of the area and loads of options of things to do next. We appreciate your comments on this matter and will be reviewing the pace and structure of this tour to better accommodate guests in the future. We hope you have a great rest of your stay and hope to see you back in Whistler soon : )

    We did this tour as a family of 4 on what was apparently one of the sloppiest days underfoot but it didn't stop us having a great time. Ryan's knowledge and manner were superb and by the end had confirmed our suspicions that we want to return to Whistler. Probably more than once. It was so good to get local information and not just the 'tourist blurb' and we would highly recommend friends and family take advantage of this expertise and professionalism.

    We did the 3 hour tour with Ryan and loved it! He was a great guide and took us to some amazing sightseeing places for photos and views of the mountains/lakes. And tons of interesting history of Whistler then and now. Also, fun to see the Olympic bobsledding course. Ryan also provided some great recommendations. Would definitely recommend this tour to others.

    This tour was exceptional! Our enthusiastic guide, Ryan Powell, made the trip remarkable with his stories and interesting tidbits of information about Whistler/Blackcomb. Ryan also went out of his way to accommodate the special transportation needs of several on our tour…a personal touch that was not expected. I believe the most beautiful of the places visited was Green Lake; the most interesting was the Olympic Bobsled Track; and the most delicious was Purebread Bakery in Function Junction. I would definitely recommend this tour and would suggest that you schedule early in your visit to take advantage of the information you receive on the tour…very worthwhile.

    Although I had previously spent a week in Whistler, I realised I had not seen very much of it, so this tour was the answer!
    Ryan took us to many places I hadn’t seen before and had so much of interest to share. He was a mine of information!
    I particularly liked visiting the bobsleigh track and being able to see them speeding down the track. We also visited the beautiful Alta Lake, which was frozen.
    A very welcome stop at Function Junction allowed us to visit Purebread. I can thoroughly recommend the salted caramel slice - delicious!
    Ryan took each member of the group into consideration and made sure we all had a great time.

    With in minutes of boarding the bus, the guide claimed that we would learn so much that we would know more than most locals do about Whistler. It is quite possible that we do. We were told of Whistler's rich history, and the visionaries who stedfastly built Whistler into the resort town that proudly hosted the 2010 Olympics along with the city of Vancouver. We saw the Alberta luge team members rip down the track at speeds our brains could barely process. Our tour guide, Ryan, was well versed in anything Whistler, and so as we drove from scenic site to scenic site, he told the fascinating story of how Whistler became Whistler. There were a two stops where we took in stunning mountain view, and another in Function Junction, where I enjoyed a craft beer. Others enjoyed the sites and tasty bakery delights. At the end of the tour, we were given a list of recommended things to do and of suggested restaurants to eat at. The tour is a must if you just have just arrived at Whistler and want to plan your trip. However, come to think about, whenever in your vacation you decide to book the tour, it is well worth adventure ... simply something you must do.

    Ryan is an amazing tour guide. He’s very informative and has no issue providing information regarding the history or about things you can do in whistler. He was very accommodating and punctual and the best part was that the tour group was small enough that everyone could hear him without any issues. You can really tell that Ryan is passionate about what he does and loves Whistler. I would definitely recommend this company to anyone who wants to explore more about Whistler.

    This trip was our first to whistler BC and as such we had booked the Whistler sight seeing tour for the beginning of our visit. We were promptly met by our guide, Ryan at the arranged meeting point from which we commenced the tour. The transport was modern, comfortable and clean for the trip.
    Ryan introduced himself and made everyone feel welcome before commencing the tour.
    As a guide, Ryan kept a good pace and held my interest throughout the tour, keen to share his extensive knowledge about the history of Whistler as well as providing information about activities, places to dine, etc. All of which came in useful for our vacation.

    For anyone visiting Whistler, especially if it's your first time, I would definitely recommend taking this tour.

    We were just visiting for a short time so this was the perfect option. Our tour guide was experienced, knowledgable and an excellent source of info for our time in Whistler. He pointed out local attractions as well as gave us the unique and full history of the region. All the stops along the tour were interesting and points we referenced or revisited during our time in town. Wonderful experience. Can't recommend enough!
