We enjoyed the tour
MYYSuzuki, 09-10-2022
The tour was well organized In The Britannia Mine Museum. It was a unique experience for us. It took around 1 hour to get to Squamish and could enjoyed Mine museum and the Sea to Sky Dragon, where we enjoyed the beautiful scenery and short hiking. The guide, Mr.Lawrence is friendly and has a lots of knowledge. We learned a lot about history and nature from him.

best day in Vancouver

Best tour Ever!!! Mr. Lawerence was so so knowledgeable, kind, quirky, an excellent driver with an excellent van. I can't believe how much we learnt about the places we visited and would not have had half the fun if it wasn't for Lawerence Tours. He was able to weave in and out of traffic and get between destination quickly and safely due to his excellent driving ability and tour bus licence. So much time saved on the road and more time at our destinations. I would highly recommend him. He is awesome. I do recommend booking right through his tour page and not Viator as Viator turned out to be quite shady for us.
Lovely Day in Squamish!

My partner and I had an amazing time on this tour. Our tour guide, Michael, was great company, and his knowledge of the area was impressive. It was fascinating learning about the history of Vancouver from architecture, the Squamish Nation, exports, parks, you name it! As someone with a lot of anxiety I often find it difficult to live in the present moment and I felt fully in the moment during the entire tour. The Britannia Mine museum was really captivating and now I know how copper gets extracted from rock! Shannon Falls and the Sea to Sky Gondola were breathtaking. We hiked a bit and Michael filled us in on all of the surrounding plants, trees and animals of the rainforest. It was just us and Sara from Toronto! Really enjoyable day to think back on. The Mercedes Benz "Bus" was lovely as well. :) Thanks, Lawrence Tours!
