    Enjoyed the most hiking 1.3 km to the top of whistler mountain from drop off point by Sky tram, and has spectacular view of mountains. Skytram is cool when you go up, but nothing major, helps with transportation to meet mountains.

We went up on the first time available! We had clear sky’s. It snowed over night and we attempted the hike to the summit but did not have poles or our spikes for our shoes. It was very slippery so we heard down. It clouded in and started snowing. We enjoyed a coffee at the top. On a clear dry this would be amazing! The views incredible!

This was an awesome tour! Andrew was very knowledgeable and treated us to the history and interesting facts of the area as we were driving. Lake Louise and Lake Moraine were breathtakingly beautiful. Highlight was the rock climb at Lake Moraine, stunning views. Highly recommend this tour!

Wonderful sunny day for the tour. The tour guide Rob was very good at story telling the whole ride there and back. The tour bus goes slowly on the highway which is good otherwise we'd be bounching off our seats.
