If you are an avid hiker, this is a must on your bucket list. The hike rewards you with a magnificent view of Squamish, Howe Sound, and the surrounding coastal mountains.

Prepare to sweat and get your heart pumping, but when you reach the summit, it will all be worth it. Of course, your hard work deserves a reward, which is why after the hike you will be taken to a local favorite brewery to celebrate with a tasting.

What people are saying about Squamish

Perfect way to spend the day!

This was a last minute booking with no research while coming in on our cruise ship. We were finishing our cruise at 10 AM and did not have a flight out until almost midnight. I attempted to book through the cruise line and they were booked up. Looking back this was lady luck smiling on our group as this tour was 100% better than the canned cruise ship tours. Gabi was on-time and arrived with a nice, clean and new, Mercedes Sprinter van. We had the itinerary for the tour and Gabi then modified this to fit out timeline and interests. We hit all the highlights to include Shannon Falls, Sea to Sky Gondola, cute Horseshoe bay marina, a downtown tour and the amazing Stanley Park. We then did some home/property sightseeing and went to the public market (take at least two hours for here, grab lunch or dinner). Great tour and an amazing guide!

Excellent experience! You get a full day of sightseeing. The tour would be tailored to your preferences, needs and interests. Lots of stops throughout the trip, many places of interest to see including some hidden gems for great photography shots. Our tour guide was very pleasant, easy-going and knowledgeable about the area and history making for a very enjoyable day! Our transport minivan was spacious, comfortable and well kept. I truly recommend this activity (or others the provider is offering) for small groups but even couples as in our case.

Our tour guide Gabriel went above and beyond to make sure we all have a great time. We didn't feel rushed. He gave recommendations on where to eat and how to maximize our visit. Worth every penny.

Gabby was the best guide! Very knowledgeable and made it the best day! Highly recommend the tour and Gabby!

Our guide was awesome: Very knowledgeable and informative!

We loved our tour, never a dull moment! Took us everywhere we wanted to go. We have FUN!!
