Enjoy Canada's scenic coastal drive in the worlds largest temperate rainforest
Vancouver is known for its natural beauty and this tour puts you in the heart of the coastal mountain rainforest. You will get picked up at a pre-determined location in Vancouver before taking in the ocean views and mountain vistas along the famous Sea-to-Sky Highway, considered one of the most beautiful drives in Canada.

EXCELLENT, HIGHLY COMMENDED (2nd Tour - further comment) :- Our party of 6 Senior Citizens from Scotland booked two day tours with Tristan via Tours by Locals. As mention in our first review Tristan is friendly, helpful & very knowledgeable about Vancouver & surrounding area. His Transit mini bus is modern, clean with plenty of room. He had a good PA system to keep us informed of points of interest during the drive. Good standard of driving & we have no hesitation in recommending him.
