My tours were fantastic! The guides are super friendly and knowledgeable, telling us all about the wildlife and habitats of the valley. The tours are conducted in really nice Land Rovers which are very comfortable and make for an intimate tour, as the party sizes are small. Sitting in a very comfortable vehicle, with great guides, driving through glorious environments... More

We knew it might be rare to find bears at this time because they are close to hibernating....however, we saw 3 and one was super close (10ft away)! What an awesome afternoon (viewing 3pm-6pm). Laurie was a great guide, friendly and she certainly knew about bears...very informative. Comfortable and sturdy 4 x 4, we were lucky to have the tour... More

This was an excellent tour to see the local bears. These guys we able to take us to areas that you can't normally get to and know where you are likely to see the bears. We saw three bears even at the end of the season. A must do if you can afford it but don't waste your money with... More

Theresa was our guide and we set off at 8am in the morning in a 4x4 - 6 of us - and we swapped seats as we went around so we were by the windows. We saw 4 bears in total but the big male bear Slumber twice. Two deer, a stag and a chip monk (very cute!). It was... More

My tour to Whistler was made wonderful by my tour guide Bazil Graham, Bazil was extremely knowledgeable about the area, helpful beyond belief, funny and kept the whole group on the bus entertained. I would strongly recommend Bazil Graham for any tours without hesitation. Jennifer Sleith

We weren't planning to do this as it's quite expensive, but having failed to spot any bears on our trip to Canada, we phoned up on the day we arrived in whistler and were pleased to find that there were two spaces on the 6pm tour that evening. The tour was fantastic - as well as seeing many different bears... More

The brochure said that September is berry eating season so the bears would be prolific. Some thirty minutes into our trek in a 4WD up Whistler Mountain we had not seen a bear and I was beginning to think we may not see any during the 3 hour activity. Our guide was Mike. He genuinely knows anything and everything that... More

We saw 7 bears and deers too!It was a most amazing and humbling experience to be so close to nature's untamed creatures in their natural habitat. We took the 5 pm viewing in a 4x4 vehicle with 6 passengers.
