Find more information about Whistler - Dining
I have been coming to Whistler almost yearly now for the past 7 years. Outside of skiing, my wife and I always indulge in a few nice dinners over our holiday. We have been to just about every fine dining venue in town.
When we arrived this year we planned the usual dinners at Rim Rock, Bearfoot etc; but were told of Whistler Tasting Tours while riding the Peak 2 Peak gondola by a gentleman who had just experienced this food and wine tour first hand. He had nothing but great things to say about it so we decided to give it a go.
Essentially, the tour takes groups to 5 different high end restaurants to sample food and different BC wines. The food was fantastic and there was more than enough for dinner. Our guide was great and the whole evening was honestly fantastic. This experience was a step up from any other dinner I've had in Whistler....which is really the reason I'm writing here.
It's nice to see something new and exciting. The two young guys who have started this tour were really pleasant and absolute gentlemen. You could see customer service in their DNA and for that I applaud. While I love Whistler, customer service is hit or miss. This one was a big hit.
For anyone looking for a great dinner experience in Whistler check these guys out. It was called Whistler Tasting Tours.
