EMBARK ON A GUIDED WHISTLER TOUR
First-time visitors to Whistler, as well as returnees who’d like a geographic and historic overview of the community and all it has to offer, now have the option of taking a guided mini-bus tour that will give them a greater appreciation for the area’s history and geography. Starting in the summer of 2018, Whistler Valley Tours began offering the Valley Sightseeing Tour, a half-day excursion designed as the perfect primer for anyone yearning to find out more about the places, history and all that’s offered in the Whistler Valley.
“People always do the Village Stroll; and if the lifts are open, they’ll go up there. But a lot of people don’t get much further than that,” said Ryan Powell, the company’s owner. “When they go home, people might ask, ‘What do you know about Whistler?’ and that could be all they know. We just want to give guests a broader perspective.”
Knowledgeable guides escort guests to glacier-fed lakes, scenic viewpoints, Olympic venues and key historic and cultural landmarks. Want to know more about what was here before Whistler became a world-renowned resort? It’s all here. “When people get back from the tour, they have a good idea of what they might like to do with their time here,” Powell said.
