The Finer Things dinner tour was delicious and fun. Our guide Nick was informative and made the tour even better. I have been coming to Whistler for almost 30 years and was looking for something new to try and Finer Things met all my expectations.

One of the best experiences ever! Definitely a Bucket List Checkoff! If you want to experience Beautiful British Columbia this is a must to do! Not only was the drive up the sea to sky highway break taking but the scenery on the raft was a 10/10!

Great history lessons full of fun facts. Many locals stopped to tell us Dan was doing a presenting the facts correctly. Entertaining and great food and drinks. Highly recommend the tour with Dan.

Sean is the best guide I’ve ever had! Food was very good, although (for me) it could have been a bit more (but I’m a big eater)

It’s was great, amazing food and amazing tour guide.
