Beautiful Sites & a Caring and Knowledgeable Guide
BeckySue_P, Aug 2023
This day trip was a wonderful start to our vacation! Michael, our guide, was very kind - even before we arrived he called to go over the details and discuss the limitations my Mom, who has difficulty walking, would have. The places we visited were all great! There was something for each member of my family. My favorite part was seeing the waterfalls and doing the hike there. My Dad's favorite was the mine tour and he also enjoyed sharing wood working photos back and forth with Michael! My Mom's favorite was the gondola. Despite taking a fall before getting on it, she still ranked it as her second favorite activity of the vacation. We appreciated all the help we were given so we could have a memorable time! We were picked up on time, transported in a nice vehicle, and stopped for lunch as well.

Im glad you folks had a good time in our great outdoors, being mobility challenged is no problem for Lawrence tours, regards Lawrence

The mine. Gondola was not available. Would have liked to know before trip started. Otherwise well narrated
Response from Host, Oct 2022
Thanks for the review we did visit the Brittania Gold and copper mine and did the full tour, and to my suprise the sea to sky gondola had a private function, so to compensate we visited a fish hatchery and did a full tour of the facility along with a rain forest walk and saw a rare thousand year old douglas fir tree. Along with lunch at the howe sound brewary, and the Shannon falls visit.
Michael was a brilliant...

It was an awesome tour. Lawrence was so knowledgeable and he explained all the details about the places we covered. Britannia Mine Museum, Shannon Water Falls,Sea to Gondola and it was totally worth it. Best thing is he came with us all the places and explained the details and history of those places.
