We were so impressed with the Whistler Tasting Tours, which we found to be a welcome change to some of the more high energetic, adrenaline filled activities that Whistler offers.
After arriving at the meeting point, we were greeted by our Tour Guide who explained that we would be sampling different courses, with recommended wine pairings throughout the night, at some of the top restaurants in town.
We had chosen the ‘Finer Things Dining Tour’ which offers 4 courses throughout the evening. Make sure you bring an appetite with you!
Everything was in walking distance and there were 6 of us in total which made for nice conversations. With different courses offered at each restaurant that we visited, the walks in between not only allowed us to view more of the Village, but also helped give us a break between the courses.
One of the highlights was our stop at Bearfoot Bistro, where you get to sabre a bottle of champagne. This was a first for me and I was thrilled that it came off perfectly!
The food and knowledge of the restaurant staff and our guide was amazing. Overall, we found the whole event to be very relaxed and thoroughly enjoyable. We learnt a lot about different wines and foods and our guide also gave us lots of tidbits of information on buildings that we were passing and Whistler in general. To top it off we paid a visit to the Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory, which was delicious, but it pretty much finished me off!
We thoroughly recommend the Whistler Tasting Tours – it’s a great evening out if you are a group wanting to get a real feel for all the different restaurants in town.
