    Sara was my guide. She was calm and clear with her directions. We had a good but chilly weather day. Climbing was moderately hard but I’m 70 and found it fun! I took the 2 1/2 hour climb which was perfect for me because I had done a 6 mile hike the day before. The views and the exercise were outstanding. I highly recommend this climb for anyone that enjoys a slight challenge and a great time!!

The tour was great. They cover lots of different spots. The tour guide was great as well. The only concern I have is with "Get Your Guide" team who mentioned the hotel I stayed is not a pick up place so we walked to the nearest spot in a rainy day but the tour bus came to our hotel looking for us and they mentioned that they cover most of the hotels as their pickup locations. "Get Your Guide" team, please keep that in mind from next time.

Sara was my guide. She was calm and clear with her directions. We had a good but chilly weather day. Climbing was moderately hard but I’m 70 and found it fun! I took the 2 1/2 hour climb which was perfect for me because I had done a 6 mile hike the day before. The views and the exercise were outstanding. I highly recommend this climb for anyone that enjoys a slight challenge and a great time!!

Great day, very gorgeous sights, knowledgeable driver, plenty of time at each stop & a nice outdoor lunch due the new dining rules in British Columbia.

Tim was an exceptional guide!! He had so much knowledge, filled with facts and jokes - definitely recommend this trip to everyone :)

I had never done something like this but would 100% do it again. Can only recommend!
