What people are saying about Squamish

Even though the forest fire from Vancouver influenced the air, the tour was amazing. We can only imagine how it would’ve looked on a clear day. It was a good call from Derek to visit Shannon Falls after Whistler. The smoke cleared up and there were less visitors. Derek even pointed out a climber next to the falls.

We really enjoyed the sea to sky tour. Our guide was great, funny and knowledgeable. The only downside was that we had 20min at Shannon Falls. I think a little more time would have been better in order to really enjoy the time there, we felt rushed.

Fantastic tour!! Maximized views and experiences! Tour guide Vinny was extremely informative and entertaining! Bus driver Alan was professional and a smooth driver!!!

Great trip! Our guide was great and full of humor! The landscapes are incredible and the bus very comfortable :)

Great trip, saw and learned a lot. Vinny was a fabulous guide, very informed and helpful
