    What To Expect

    After hotel pickup in Vancouver, travel north with your guide aboard a luxury coach toward Whistler. The route along Highway 99, the Sea-to-Sky corridor, offers plenty of gorgeous scenery that makes for a memorable journey.


    Your route begins at sea level and tracks the shore along Howe Sound. Stop in Squamish and ride the Sea-to-Sky Gondola, a 90-minute aerial experience offering spectacular views of Howe Sound, coastal forests, and the Squamish River. At the Summit Lodge, 2,900 feet (885 meters) above sea level, relax and enjoy the views, perhaps with a beer or snack (own expense). Or, embark on one of the nearby trails, one of which includes a suspension bridge.

    Your next stop along the Sea-to-Sky corridor is Brandywine Falls, situated between Garibaldi Heights and Whistler. Spend an hour here to watch the falls’ 230-foot (70-meter) drop, as well as Daisy Lake, from the large viewing platform.


    Once you reach Whistler Village, enjoy four hours to explore this bustling village on your own. Choose from an array of activities and attractions, and feel free to ask your guide for recommendations. Your trip concludes with return transport to your original departure point.

    If the clouds stay high (or you're blessed with a clear day), this will be an experience to remember.
    Incredible views, a little chilly and lots of fresh air, but well worth it.

    Amy_N, Jan 2023
    Awesome tour! Bus driver picked us up at our hotel and was very knowledgeable about the area. The Gondola ride was fun and the hiking options at the top were top notch!
    Beautiful British Columbia
    Allyson_M, Oct 2022
    We had an amazing tour! Steve was our driver/guide and was very knowledgeable and funny. Our favorite part was the Sea to Sky Gondola and Shannon Falls. It was such an beautiful view and we enjoyed our time at the top. Whistler is a beautiful place, lots of things to do if you love to explore. The pre tour communication was amazing. A picture of the exact location was provided and very helpful. Can’t wait to book another tour with Viator again. 💜
    Highly recomended
    Amitkumar_J, Oct 2022
    Excellent tour location and experience - very knowledgeable, polite and helpful driver whose commentary during the journey was very informative and entertaining too.
    Stunning views in great company
    Amanda_W, Oct 2022
    This tour was fantastic, and a great way to see Whistler. The driver was very knowledgeable and able to answer all questions. The group was small and very friendly and it was a marvellous day. Would thoroughly recommend this tour. The Sea to Sky Gondola ride included a walk over a suspension bridge, with stunning views.
    Amazing View!
    Wendy_S, Oct 2022
    We had a great tour! Mick was our driver/guide and was very knowledgeable. Our favorite part was the sea to sky gondola. It was such an amazing view and we enjoyed our time at the top. Whistler was fine, but the peak to peak gondola was not running that day (no fault of the tour) and we would have loved that. The pre tour communication was amazing. A picture of the exact location was provided and very helpful. I would highly recommend and would do another tour with them in the future.
    Christle_B, Oct 2022
    Sea to sky gondola’s views are really awesome! The views from Peak 2 Peak and Blackcomb Gondola are breathtaking
    Fantastic view.
    Marlene_S, Oct 2022
    The Sea to Sky gondola was frightening but amazing view. Whistler was pretty but unfortunately too late and tickets too expensive to go up the mountain.
    Must do tour
    John_V, Sep 2022
    The sea to sky gondola was amazing, gorgeous views and a brilliant experience. Our bus driver, Steve, was a great tour guide and made the journey both interesting and entertaining. The peak to peak gondola at whistler were closed which put a bit of a downer on that part of the trip, but whistler is a lovely place to explore and we were lucky enough to see a wild black bear! I would highly recommend this trip.
    Breathtaking tour
    Margaret_F, Sep 2022
    Sea to sky gondola ride was breathtaking, wish we had longer there to do some hiking, next time would do as two separate tours. Driver was excellent guide, gave loads of information. Highly recommend
    Wonderful tour, perfect day
    Nicola_B, Sep 2022
    The Sea to Sky Gondola was the highlight for me, what a wonderful experience, not to be missed. Shannon Falls was beautiful. Whistler was a lovely visit, there’s activities but also plenty of spaces to have lunch or sit and watch. Even the drive to and from the driving stops was incredible.
    Good tour
    POHCHOO_L, Sep 2022
    Beautiful places. However, would prefer to spend more time in Sea & Sky Gondola than in Whistler Village. All in all, too short a time. Must also compliment our driver cum guide, Steve, of Pacific Coach, who is really knowledgeable, comical and made the whole journey very interesting.
    Relaxing adventure
    Olivia_B, Sep 2022
    The locations visited! Vancouver / Whistler has some stunning sights. If you’re a fan of nature I recommend this tour. A very relaxing trip and a memorable day.
    You won't be sorry you spent the day on this tour
    LydiaProctor, Sep 2022
    Well worth the trip and cost of the tour. Comfy ride, the sites were fabulous and our driver Mic, excellent. I'd do it again!
    Train was great Liarsville not so much
    Pat_L, Sep 2022
    They could do without Liarsville but the train was amazing. Liarsville was very disappointing and in our opinion a waste of time
    Worth every penny!
    Kathy_R, Sep 2022
    The whole day was fantastic. Endless views and a very friendly and knowledgeable driver. I can’t say what my favorite part of the trip was because I loved it all!

    Walking across the suspension bridge at the Sea to Sky tramway. Also enjoyed walking around Whistler. Driver (Brent) was very very knowledge and enhanced the trip.
    Full day and great fun too
    Debbie_F, Sep 2022
    Where to begin? Shannon Falls we’re stunning. The dappled sunlight at the viewpoints made it more magical. The trip on the Sea to Sky Gondola gave some incredible views over Howe Sound. At the summit I managed to do the Spirit Trail and the Panorama Trail and still had time left for a bite to eat. The summit views were just breathtaking. Four hours in Whistler is plenty of time to get more mountain time or do some shopping and visit the First Nation Cultural Centre. I chose the mountains. Need to leave a good two and a half hours for this adventure but you’d still have time for refreshments and a spot of shopping afterwards. Peter, our bus driver, was a font of knowledge giving us snippets of local history and facts as we went along. A brilliant day out.
    Amazing nature view
    Phillsun_K, Sep 2022
    We really enjoyed. Great trip at Whistler and great view at gondola. Also, Good explanation from the driver.
    Tour to Whistler BC
    Ginger_M, Sep 2022
    We were picked up close to where we were staying in downtown. It was 12 hour tour and we made a few stops before we headed to Whistler. We stopped at Shannon Falls, which was beautiful, then over to the Sea to Sky tram. The weather was very foggy so our views weren’t great, but we walked the trails and saw so much beauty. Then we headed to Whistler. We had a wonderful lunch at an Irish pub, visited the Olympic park, went to a museum and did some shopping. I highly recommend this tour
    Going up in the Gondola...
    Janet_M, Sep 2022
    Going up in the Gondola and then across the bridge being as I’m scared of heights The view at the top is amazing
