    We were looked after by Bobby today who was absolutely brilliant. Such a great, kind, nice and knowledgeable person.

    Bobby gave us an absolutely fantastic tour of the Capliano suspension bridge, Grouse mountain (which we cut short due to bad weather) a bonus stop of the nearby Dam (with the extra time we had)
    Finishing at the Salmon ladder.

    It was a thoroughly enjoyable day and I can't recommend this tour enough!

    I have always wanted to see the orcas in their natural environment and so decided upon Prince of Whales. I was impressed with the company's values and concerns for the education and wildlife factors. We were not disappointed at all.
    Amanda provided us details throughout the watch. She described the Whales, differences between orcas and humpback whales, mating, etc We especially appreciate the ability to just enjoy the experience without taking photos as these were provided within hours of our outing. Money well spent for an adventure we won't forget!

    Our tour guide to Whistler was Jason. He was a font of knowledge, passionate about his job and exceptional customer service. Went out of his way to give you the best experience. Can't recommend this trip highly enough. Look forward to returning and booking another trip.

    The day started with us being late for pick-up, our fault but the communication wasn’t as good as we’d experienced earlier in the week in Toronto. Anyway, Don was patient and provided with a really interesting tour before escorting us to the Capilano Bridge. An amazing afternoon where I faced my fears and even was given a certificate. The return journey included a trip to Granville Island, which we’d done the day before so Don kindly dropped us at a suitable place to navigate back to our hotel.

    The seaplane was a good experience. Loved Capilano bridge. Easy free shuttle to the park. Park is crowded but well managed. I do wish we had clearer instructions on where to meet the shuttle, etc.

    This is a great Tour to do at the beginning of your Vancouver stay, as you get a great sense of the island and it's history. My guide Sarveech was very knowledgeable and attentive, in terms of getting you up to speed with the electric bikes. I arrived at the Tour without have slept the prior night, and this Tour revived me. The bikes are easy to use, even for a senior citizen like me. It was a bit drizzly, but the ponchos keep you warm and dry. Of course, you can take the Tour any time, great value!

    Excellent Vancouver City tour. Ideal way to familiarise ourselves on day 1 and a great option for a wet day. Delightful guides, friendly, informative and hugely considerate of everyone’s needs. Learnt a lot in just a few hours. All in all very good value for our money and really appreciated the hotel pick up and drop off service included in the price.

    Excellent experience! The entire staff was great…Tobin was a phenomenal guide. We were able to see countless humpback whales. We also say sea lions, seals and several birds. Would definitely recommend!

    What an experience…our first sea plane ride was from Vancouver to Victoria on Vancouver island. The entire process was easy, the views were beautiful and the staff very friendly. I would highly recommend it for a day visit or longer.

    The flowers are breathtaking. I went in late September. Want to come back during the summer with roses more in bloom. Also want to see at night!

    Best and fastest way to go to Victoria for the day. You don’t waste hours on the ferry. Airline is efficient.
