Tour: #23812, Vancouver to Whistler Day Trip - Private Tour, Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada    view tour
Date: Oct 14/19

After a whirlwind vacation, this was the perfect relaxing day trip.Since it was Thanksgiving, we invited Winston's family to join us for the day. It was fun! We got input from his entire family on the way of life in Vancouver. The drive was very scenic, with stops along the way. Whistler ski resort was great to check out, with lunch, tram rides, shopping etc. A great day-long adventure. We were dropped off at the airport. After spending 3 days with Winston, we felt like we had made a new friend.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It's hard to believe we could top our previous two days but again, Whistler and Vancouver lived up to their name. Thank you so much for being so gracious about Thanksgiving and the Family. Everyone enjoyed themselves and we certainly did our best to make your last day in Vancouver memorable. All the best to you and your Family, and safe travels, always!

Date: Oct 13/19

Upon our return from a cruise, Winston picked us up at the port. We then took in the sights of Stanley Park, the Aquarium, the Vancouver Museum and many places along the way. Winston was our private guide through the museums. He has a treasure trove of knowledge about the area and its people and history. He and my husband could talk all day!! He was a joy to be with and we learned so much about Vancouver and Canada. I would highly recommend Winston.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I am so pleased that you and Mike enjoyed all of the high points of Vancouver. Your timing in the City was spectacular, and it was a joy taking you both around. Next stop, Whistler!

Winston was fantastic. We choose him because he did larger groups (we had 6) and he did kids (we had 2). He adapted to our flight times changing and then being late. He had great knowledge of the area and gave us enough time to explore as we went. He was great with out 8 year old and the 200 questions that she asked and gave us as adults great info on all the places. We went to Granville Island and got dinner, then Stanley Park, the beach, Lions Gate Bridge and all the sports arenas. Fantastic time.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Randee! Thank you so much for the kind and generous feedback! Your family and friends were a fun bunch to tour with. I am thrilled that we could squeeze in a full tour with a late afternoon start. Safe continued travels for you and your dogs. Winston

Winston was outstanding. We were a group of 7 with varying hiking abilities. He accommodated everybody, was attentive to our needs and is a delightful personality. He is also very bright and knowledgeable, plus interesting. We were all very pleased and enjoyed the 2 days. He had not hiked for a long time but my sense is he will get back into it and will make a perfect guide for those interested in hiking/cultural experience. Recommend him with enthusiasm.

I had the pleasure of escorting a group of 7 last Sunday to Victoria and Butchart Gardens. We also had the pleasure of having Winston as our guide! From the start he was an amazing guide with his knowledge, personality attention to detail and his making sure everyone was happy. He had to navigate Victoria during a very busy day, (with the holiday) And did so to perfection. I would give him a 10 out of 10.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for the glowing feedback, Kim. I really appreciate all of your kind words and praise. Your group and you, especially, were a joy to tour with. My hope is that our day was memorable for a long time to come. Winston

We spent two days with Winston and he was terrific; Vancouver to Victoria Day Trip and Vancouver Top to Bottom. Winston was engaging, knowledgeable and a joy to have as a guide. On day two, I had an incident falling on steps landing on my two artificial knees. Winston was extremely helpful in getting first aid and was very flexible in dealing adjusting the itinerary. As travel agents, we have experienced many tours and these were the very best. Highly recommend him; he made our stay in Vancouver

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks again for the doubly glowing feedback! So glad you enjoyed our time in Victoria and Vancouver. Best of everything to you and your friends. Winston

Whyte lake was amazing, also the hiking up to there. Winston is a very nice guide and went out of his way to make us feel at ease and show us the place. His vehicle is very comfortable with a lot of leg room. It is a newer model Honda Odyssey. He built an easy rapport with us and felt like a buddy we were going to the lake with.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for the feedback, Brian. And I appreciate the opportunity in working with you all!
