    Very good trip with a lot of fun and lots of information but ...

    As announced, a great ride in great nature with an experienced guide who was also very entertaining. However, the organization of the journey was bad. When booking, it was said that you would be picked up in Whistler, shortly afterwards the email came that the journey of around 40 minutes had to be done by yourself. Eventually it turned out that the specified meeting point was completely wrong. It was only thanks to the friendly support of a hotel that it was possible to find the meeting point at all. This was around 20 km away. There it turned out that the other four fellow travelers were picked up in Whistler.
