This tour was exactly what we were looking for. Whenever we visit a new city, we sign up for a brief tour to augment our own research, get oriented and solidify our plans. Andre was our driver and guide. Private car, just us and him. Informal, friendly, very helpful. And flexible. Andre modified the tour a bit based on our conversation and interests. Highly recommend.

I’ve stayed many times over 40 years. Started with a smaller more romantic place to stay and enjoy the inside pools to a more business centered hotel with expanded services and hot pools. My last stay was a short time ago. We stayed in the east wing which was dated but comfortable and the bed was comfy. The Copper Room dining room was not open and so the food choices were pared down. The lobby lounge area has food which we enjoyed, also the coffee shop was open for coffee and snacks. One of us had a hot stone massage which was amazing and the pools were nice..go at off times when not so busy.
Tips: Stay in east wing!! Area restaurants are sub par. /Eat at hotel. Use the pools at off times. Typical staff shortages / ie; could use staff at pools for direction . Walk out to the hot spring origin ( short walk), drive around the lake to Sasquatch Provincial Park Green Point Day use area ( beautiful)

My friend had some business to do in Ucluelet and Tofino so she invited me to join her. I was picked up just after 5am to take the 6:25am ferry from Horseshoe Bay to Nanaimo. The view of Vancouver from the ferry is magical.

After driving around to get everything done we hiked for 3 hours along the rugged shoreline of the Wild Pacific Trail. The seascape and power of the Pacific Ocean is breathtaking!

I don't recommend doing a one day trip but if you’re pressed for time it’s a good overview of both areas. I prefer Ucluelet because of its resort vibe and rugged coastline.

Andre was excellent, had a great tour / overview of Vancouver - exactly what we were looking for. He had professional and personal knowledge and we saw/experienced the highlights and made suggestions on what to see again when we had more time.
Definitely recommend the tour and ask for him.

Beware booking with this company. Back in February 2022, I booked a 3 day Rockies trip with them for September 2022. Paid the full amount at the time of booking for 3 people. £2,748.16.
Now, with only just over 2 weeks until our bucket list holiday to Canada they write and tell me that demands for Hotel rooms in Jasper & Banff are in high demand and that they can no longer give us our trip at the price we paid unless we stay in resorts away from Jasper & Banff. Why were the hotels not booked when I paid 7 months ago? What did they do with our money?
We wanted to specifically visit these two places so sadly had to cancel and ask for a refund.
No refund as yet despite 2 phone calls from Scotland to Canada and several emails. They told me yesterday they refunded the money last week but my bank has no notification of any refund process showing for my credit card.
I will be notifying every professional body who they say they are associated with and I will visit their office in Vancouver in a few weeks time and ask about my refund yet again.
Look elsewhere to book your trips!!!!!!
No stars should be awarded to this company.

A must do if you go to Whistler. The cost is $55 in U.S. dollars. It took us about 2 hours to do the roundtrip and spend time at the two peaks. The ski lift up Whistler takes about 20 minutes. The Gongola from Whistler to Blackcomb is 2.7 miles over the valley. Great views and you go through the mist and clouds.

There are good stands at both peaks as well as bathrooms. You can also take pictures at the Olympic Symbol stand.

The lines to get on the lift and gondola move very fast. Mountain Bikers have designated lifts for their use. They go down the mountain from 6000 feet.

Have lunch at one of the restaurants at the base of the mountain and watch the mountain bikers finish their run

I think it's hilarious that you're charging over $300 for this.
We used to go there often because, as it's not city property, you can bring your dog and a portable barbecue and have a lovely day at the beach.
But; Beware! The city dog catcher hangs out at the property line. If your dog steps over the line; they can swoop in and snatch it!

My girlfriend and some of my colleagues came to Vancouver for a business meeting and decided to take this tour. We visited all the major locations, had some great ice cream and the tour guide/driver also some very good photos of our group. Highly recommend these folks!

The Grouse Mountain Alpine ski/snowshoe area is very close to downtown Vancouver, BC. Extremely packed 6 minute Gondola (tram) ride to the top. Alpine skiing was in full swing on 12/21/2021. This day was cloudy with a bit of internment rain atop mountain. We chose the snowshoe trails. Took about 30 minutes to rent snow shoes for friends. I brought my own snowshoes and trekking poles. My friends chose not to wait further for poles, which made off trail movement more difficult. A paper map of trails could not be found. The trails were supposed to be marked relative to their level of difficulty. They could have been better marked. We had fun going off trail. The actual trails were very hard packed and snowshoes we're actually unnecessary. I prefer back country to this experience to the hard packed trails.

Globalduniya was dishonest and disrespectful to us and Viator.

My husband’s backpack and my backpack were both stolen from Globalduniya’s car during our Vancouver City Tour. I contacted Globalduniya but they gave only excuses and they never called me back. Globalduniya lied to Viator, our booking agency, by telling them that I was not sure if I misplaced my backpack or if it got lost in their vehicle.

I posted the above short comment online to express our disappointment with Globalduniya. Their lengthy response to my comment of course said how great a company they are. We are not complaining about the elements of the tour we did with them. The point is that they failed to perform by failing to lock the car doors. More importantly, they wrote dishonest untrue statements meant to discredit us. I will address below some of the things they wrote in their response to my short comment.

The incident happened on a drizzly day in Vancouver when there was hardly anybody around. Our tour guide/driver wanted to take a photo of us for his agency. We asked if it’s OK to leave our backpacks in the car. He reassured us that he was going to lock the doors and it’s just going to be a short stop.

Globalduniya blamed my husband for being the last one to exit the car. But, it doesn't matter who was the last one to exit the car, if the doors really automatically lock, as a Globalduniya representative claimed. Whoever stole our backpacks did not have to break-in and was able to quickly steal our backpacks because the doors were not locked. Also, my husband and I were the first to return to the vehicle and we were able to open the doors because they were not locked.
After we opened the vehicle doors, we immediately saw we each had too much leg room and we asked where were our backpacks that had been on the floor of the car. We do have pictures of us wearing the backpacks during the tour, demonstrating that we had them during the tour before they were stolen. They think that I was the only one who “misplaced/lost” a backpack. What about my husband’s backpack which was stolen at the same time? They seemingly do not know the fact that two backpacks were simultaneously stolen from their car. Yet, they boldly accused us of falsely contriving a story about losing our backpacks in their car. That is complete and utter nonsense!
We never asked anybody to lie. We asked our tour guide/driver to call the Canadian Police so we could file a report in the likelihood a stolen item is found. During the filing of the Police Report, our tour guide/driver on his own provided information on where and when the incident happened, his car plate number, and that there was no forced entry.
Globalduniya wrote that we tried to get the refund from Viator on wrong pretext when the truth is it was Globalduniya who lied to Viator. I had contacted Viator to let them know I asked for a full refund from Globalduniya but I was not getting anywhere dealing with Globalduniya. Viator at first closed the case because Globalduniya told Viator that I was not sure if I had misplaced my backpack or if it got lost in their vehicle which was a lie. After I informed Viator of what truly happened, the case was reopened and it was escalated to their legal team. According to Viator, Globalduniya refused to give us a refund. We are pleased with Viator's handling of the situation and that they gave us a refund as a goodwill gesture.
My comment was a truthful account of what happened and how Globalduniya mistreated us. By writing untrue statements, they just proved that they are dishonest and disrespectful. By the way, there are some “LIKE '' on some tours in Globalduniya’s website that were from our tour guide/driver who is listed as owner/manager of Globalduniya. Isn’t that evidence of phenomenal bias and deceit?
Globalduniya gave excuses, they lied, and they never called me back. They said it will take them two weeks to make a decision and they were going to call me back. I gave them two phone numbers to call me. But, it’s been six weeks and I never got a call back.
We were owed a refund for the completed tour because Globalduniya’s performance was unacceptable. Performance is not just going to each tour point. Full performance includes and requires locking the car doors when we are away from the car. Such a refund would not have covered all of the losses caused by our tour guide's failure to lock the doors. Simply, Globalduniya and its representative did not deliver full performance and owed us, at a minimum, at least a refund of the tour fee. Now, in response to my online postings, Globalduniya offered a free city tour which is of no use to us because we have already done it and we are in the USA.

We shared our experience because it is good to be aware that what a person or company says or writes is not always the truth.

Sorry, to note that you are still trying to overrule the facts. which at your end was totally wrong. we explained our points of view. At least now our guest is accepting that they have no problem with the tour elements. The responsibility of belongings safety lies with the travelers not the Tour guide. The car was fully automatic and latest luxury SUV. People know how they function. Your allegation will not help you. Why police have not taken any action if Globalduniya employee was at fault? How within minutes your stolen card got charged at far end of the city, as you claim you lost it in Stanley park? you have prejudiced mind, so you are writing that we are dishonest and disrespectful. How come question of dishonesty comes in picture? you lost your bag as you claimed and on our request you did the police complaint and Police understood your malign intentions, so they did not helped you. Our guide was with you helping you all the time. how he become disrespectful. Stop making stories. We were right, we are right and we will not bow down in front of your allegations.
