Description

This trip combines four days of winter activity in Whistler with three days of more urban pursuits in Vancouver. With just two hotels—both truly luxurious—you’ll have the opportunity to unwind and really enjoy your surroundings. And while some things have been organized for you, there is plenty of unstructured time for you to explore on your own. Highlights include dogsledding and zip-lining in Whistler, and a private tour of the different faces of Vancouver, a city famed for its cultural diversity.

Trip to Canada

Our experience with Entree Canada was excellent. All of the drivers and cars were very good and the recommended guides were knowledgeable and helpful. They scheduled us on Via Rail Canada from Montreal to Quebec City and the attendants were extremely nice and helpful as were the lady porters. One of our traveling companions lost a hearing aid while on the train and didn't discover it until we reached the hotel, Auberge St. Antoine, who called immediately. The train had departed. Miraculously, the next day Via Rail brought the hearing aid to the hotel. That is really good service. Use Entree Canada if you travel to Canada.
