Leave the city of Vancouver behind and enjoy a full-day small-group tour to the famous resort town of Whistler! You'll journey past huge mountains, see the third-tallest waterfall in British Columbia, and have ample free time to sample the exciting seasonal activities offered in Whistler Village. Scheduled tour stops include Squamish, Whistler Village, Shannon Falls and the Squamish Lil'wat Cultural Centre. With a maximum group size of 30 passengers led by a friendly and knowledgeable guide, you are ensured of a personal and intimate experience on this memorable day trip from Vancouver.
Following pickup from Vancouver or Richmond (select hotels only), you'll travel by mini-coach to Whistler through the scenic Sea-to-Sky corridor. Along the way, you'll enjoy spectacular views from the peaks of the Tantalus mountains to the depths of the canyon of the Cheakmus River.

On your journey home you will have the opportunity to stop at Shannon Falls, the third-highest waterfall in Canada. Take a walk to the base for some great photos of this natural wonder or step back and admire the power and beauty of the cascading waters before continuing your scenic journey back to Vancouver.
