Our tour guide was the best bus operator I’ve ever seen. He knew just about everything there was to know about where we were going and everything along the way. He regaled us with stories all the way up to Whistler and had even more to tell us all the way back. He took us to the most scenic and interesting places along the way and I’ll bet if we took the same trip the next day he could come up with more informative and interesting stuff to tell us. His side trip to the school for our ‘nature walk’ was especially enlightening and he obviously cares about the things he was showing us. He was a real joy to travel with. I would definitely recommend him and his company for this trip.
