Kudos to Wayne and Andrew, our guide and driver for a tour of a brewery, distillery and market garden in the Pemberton area. Our group of 15 had a ton of fun and learned a lot. I recommend Whistler Tasting Tours for groups or individuals alike.

We did the Hidden Gems tour with Bria and it was a great way to discover new restaurants and eating experiences. We have visited Whistler several times over the past ten years and thought we knew the town. The tour however took us to restaurants that were new to us and we might not have found on our own. We took the wine pairing option which was very good value.
Finally, Bria was great. A terrific source of information on the town and local personalities and she knows her wine!

As a repeat customer I tried a new tour this time and took the self-guided lunch tour. It was great! Lots of food, super nice staff and super easy to do. Take your appetite with you and have some fun exploring. Highly recommend!

Due to poor planning by Whistler Tasting Tours, we lost an entire vacation day. We had booked the tasting tour for us and our friends. Since the tour was supposed to start at 4pm, we planned our whole day around it. We didn't go skiing and we organized extra food for the kids. Then we got a message on short notice, 50 minutes before the tour started, that the tour was cancelled due to bad weather. But we were already on the way ... In Whistler Village, moreover, it was completely unproblematic: all paths were largely free of ice and the tour would have been possible in any case. We could have well understood a cancellation the day before or in the morning. Then we would also have had the chance to arrange our day differently. But so we lost a whole day of vacation due to poor planning by Whistler Tasting Tours. Never again! Terrible!

Hi, We apologize we had to cancel the tour and sorry to hear that keeping our Guides & Guests safety as a top priority warranted a 1 star review. As per our Tour Cancellation policy which is agreed upon when a guest books & is also listed on our website and within our booking confirmation policies, we do hold the right to cancel a tour at any point if we strongly believe that it is in the best interest of all parties to not host the tour. A full refund was provided & once we had received word from our guides & local municipality that conditions we considerably much better we resumed tours as normal the next day. A one off unfortunate decision we had to make due to weather conditions, and are again, apologetic that we were unable to host you on what is rated a 5 star experience by those that have actually been on the tour. Please feel free to reach out directly on 604 902 8687 and I would be happy to get you on a tour free of charge so you to can experience the great fun with have with our guests. Regards, Dean

We had walked the village several times and saw all of the alleys, roads and shops. So we thought! This really was the Hidden Gems! Started with tapas and the salmon was perfect. Wine pairing was lovely and a nice pour. Hunter + Gather was next with 2 IPAs that were terrific. Entree was at Stonesedge and was delicious. Rogers chocolate was a great visit. We went back for chocolates after the tour! The apple tart at Carumba was delicious too. Stuffed!

Bria was our host. Very entertaining and accommodating. Bria was the highlight. Enjoyed touring another couple.

Great time and good food! Enjoy!!

I really like doing food tours when I am on vacation because it allows me to sample many restaurants with a guide in a short period of time. I will post the 6 food locations we visited below the body of my review for those that are interested. I don't know if these change seasonally. The starting point, Olives, can be difficult to find. It's on the corner of the strip of shops near the noodles shop opposite peaked pies.

We started our tour at Olives on tap. I would not normally consider vinegar and olive oil tasting to be appetizing. That was before Olives. It was a great mini introduction to upscale products. I plan on going back and buying a couple of offerings before I go home. Our next stop was Elements where we had a nice portion size of salmon on a bed of vegetables. It was excellent. We then walked over to Hy's Steakhouse to try beef teriyaki. From there we went to Stonesedge where we had a choice of 3 mains (Chicken, Fish, Vegetarian) I opted for the Farmer's bowl after the first 2 meat dishes. After we stopped in at Roger's chocolates for an ice wine inspired chocolate ( also plan on stopping by here for some purchases before I leave) before ending at Caramba for apple pie and ice cream. All the white wine pairings were excellent and my appreciation for BC wines continues to grow during this trip.

Overall it is an excellent tour if you are interested in sampling foods from many of the highly rated restaurants in Whistler. The guide, Luke, was knowledgeable and kept us entertained with Whistler tidbits throughout the tour.

Stop 1: Olives on Tap (premium extra-virgin olive oil and vinegar tasting bar)
Stop 2: Elements (Urban Tapas )
Stop 3: Hy's Steakhouse (High end steak, seafood, cocktail and wine)
Stop 4: Stonesedge (Wholesome comfort food)
Stop 5: Rogers Chocolates (Canadian Chocolate Shop started in 1885)
Stop 6: Caramba (Mediterranean cuisine casual dining)

We recently went on the Whistler Tasting - 'Fine Things' Tour. It was the worst dining experience we have ever encountered. Except for the delightful Barefoot Bistro cellar experience, the food was sparse and to a standard no better than a cheap 'pub' experience. The two of us had to share a small entree and the main was just awful. Dessert was not given and three very small pieces of cheese on a platter for two was given - this was not an 'artisan cheese platter' as advertised. We queried this with FireRock and they said this was ordered by the tour and not to the standard of their restaurant if you ate at their venue. We complained about the meal standard and we received a 50% discount. Even at this discounted rate we felt so unhappy with the meal quality and quantity that we would advise anyone considering DONT GO THERE

Hi Diane, Thank you kindly for taking the time to provide feedback as it gives us a valuable opportunity to improve the experience for future guests. However, I am disheartened to see this review and I don't believe it is at all fair. Allow me to explain... If we ever fail to deliver to the standards that we and our customers have come to expect, we do everything we can to immediately acknowledge and rectify the situation. Following the tour, you mentioned to your guide that you weren't overly satisfied. She immediately got me on the phone so I could speak with you about the experience. As a token of our commitment to guest satisfaction we immediately issued a 50% refund for your group and asked if there was anything else that could be done. You were very appreciative and acknowledged that our speedy response to an unfortunate situation was outstanding customer service. I am glad that you enjoyed the experience at the Bearfoot Bistro. They are definitely a highlight of the tour and always enjoyed by our guest. Beyond that, we take pride in all of our partners, as every stop on this tour is an award-wining restaurant and there are definitely no pubs. I would encourage anyone reading this post to visit our partner websites to get a sense of the restaurants we visit on our Finer Things Tour: Bearfoot Bistro Hy's Steakhouse Quattro Firerock Lounge In speaking with your guide Marie, one of our best and someone you acknowledged was fabulous, she approached you at the main course location to see if everything was satisfactory as she sensed your mood had changed. You proceeded to tell her that everything was fine. When she continued to feel as though this was not the case she went and asked the restaurant manager to approach you. Again, you told him that everything was fine. Following the tour we learned that the restaurant made an error by serving you a main course sided with the regular signature pasta that is moderately spicy instead of the special requested non-spicy pasta side. This was unfortunate, but occasional errors do happen at busy restaurants, and we would have been happy to provide a new dish had we been informed. As advertised, we have two sweet stops on tour, Rogers Chocolates and Rocky Mountain Chocolate. We then finish with artisan cheese plates at the final stop. The cheese is paired to balance the sweet BC icewine served, following a few sweet stops. That said, it did sound like the cheese plates on that day were not the portion that they should have been and were made by a new restaurant staff member who wasn't properly trained on the procedure. However, as you acknowledged in our conversation the quality was still high. We immediately addressed this with our partner restaurant to avoid this situation in the future. I hope that readers understand that we take customer service very seriously and strive for 100% guest satisfaction.

We really enjoyed the fine dining tour and our guide Andrew was an excellent.
There were only 4 of us in the party but they were great company. Might have been more awkward if you didn’t hit it off but we got lucky. Great food and wine loved the tour of the wine cellar and particularly enjoyed the food at Hy steak house. It was great to visit restaurants we hadn’t been to before.
I would definitely recommend this tour.

Took this delicious food tasting tour hosted by our friendly neighborhood guide, Eugene.

He took the 4 of us to 5 different stops on this progressive dinner. Each tour selects different restaurants and there are other options to chose from. We included the wine pairing and all wine selections were Canadian bottles. Besides the food, Eugene also included some fun games and activities along with select prizes at the end.

First stop was the Barefoot Bistro’s private wine cellar for a sparkling wine sabering lesson plus appetizer. Very Fun to see the huge wine collection.

Next stop was Hy’s Steakhouse for tuna and teriyaki beef appetizers paired with red or white wine. Both delicious.

Third stop was Italian Quattro for the main course. We had pasta with salmon or veal.

Next we had a quick stop at Rogers Chocolate and got a small piece of chocolate.

The real dessert though was at Caramba where we got ice wine and a super sweet doughy plus ice cream thing.

Bottom line we tried some good foods at a variety of restaurants. Some dishes were really good and some were meh! Eugene kept it entertaining and fun.
