While we would rather have been riding comfortably in one of our premium vehicles during these past couple of months with you, rather than the roller coaster we’ve all been enduring, we have been working really hard to fulfill new health and safety initiatives that will bring you the very best experience possible in the safest way possible.
Safety is a key issue. With our on-board sanitation stations, safety signage and social distancing seating system we alleviate any concerns while continuing to provide quality and comfortable transfer solutions for Vancouver and Whistler.
Luxury Transport is dedicated to following health and safety guidelines and setting ourselves and our riders on a solid path of solutions, including rigorous cleaning schedules, protective shields, health screening, and physical distancing protocols.
Here is an update on the health and safety measures we are putting in place to adapt to our new normal and ensure the safety of our passengers and staff…
- As passengers enter the vehicle, they are greeted with some new signage asking for them to adhere to social distancing and steps they can take to help ensure everyone’s safety.
- In the new spirit of social distancing we have blocked off every other seat. We are operating at 50% capacity and can take up to 12 passengers in the mini-coaches.
- We have also implemented a clear, vinyl barrier separating the driver from the rest of the passengers.
- Our vehicles are detailed and sanitized rigorously and regularly, including a new pump and spray touch-less system that disinfects the entire vehicle interior.
- We will have cleaning wipes visible and available for passengers. Hand sanitizer dispensers will be mounted in the vehicle at the entry door. We have the dispensers in hand and are awaiting the arrival of the sanitizing bags from our provider.
We are thankful, positive, and ready to fulfill your private transfer and shuttle needs across our beautiful cities of Vancouver and Whistler.

Our efforts are endless to ensure each and every ride is a true success and our clients would agree, thus honoring us with a Certificate of Excellence for 2015 from TripAdvisor.
Here are a few recent testimonials that make us blush!…
Conference Direct says…
“I recently worked with Luxury Transport Inc. for my client’s 150 person conference in July, 2015 at the Westin Bayshore Hotel. Luxury Transport provided airport transfers to the majority of our guests and transportation for the entire group for three offsite events. We were extremely pleased with the quality of the staff and vehicles, their prompt attention to our questions and their ability to adapt quickly to our travel manifest changes. We received many compliments from attendees that appreciated the drivers’ friendliness and knowledge of the local Vancouver area which was shared during their airport transfers. I would recommend any organization coming to Vancouver and looking for high quality transportation services to work with Luxury Transport Inc.”
Whistler Congress Committee says…
“It is with heartfelt appreciation that the Whistler Congress Committee and all the members of Les Clefs d’Or Canada wish to say ‘Thank You’ for all your support, kindness and generosity in making the 10th National Les Clefs d’Or Congress the most successful to date. We are so proud to have had you as our industry partner…”
A recent Whistler client says…
“I was expecting basic service from Vancouver to Whistler, but got so much more! Our driver (Tej) was so accommodating and knowledgeable as he navigated us first to a grocery for utinsels so we could eat our picnic lunch, and then along the Sea to Sky Highway. Tej provided insight on the various places along the way, and also made recommendations on what to do and see in Whistler.”
A Tale of Two Cities no doubt! We’re here to help with planning for your trip to Whistler and Vancouver this 2015/2016 Season!
As we hit summer countdown into those longer late summer early fall days in Vancouver and Whistler, it’s our reminder that now is the time to start planning that Whistler trip to remember!
Take on Vancouver, take on Whistler, or split time between the two beautiful neighboring cities giving you two outrageously fun and beautiful destinations in one trip.
Both Whistler and Vancouver are well known for their breathtaking surrounding views and culinary expertise. While Whistler boasts a charming and atmospheric resort-style Village, Vancouver excites with endless landmarks, beautiful parks, and a bustling downtown core. While in Whistler, walk the boutique shops in the Village and take a ride up the Whistler Blackcomb Gondola and cross the impressive Peak 2 Peak Gondola, then take some time in Vancouver to take in the downtown culture of Gastown and Chinatown as well as a drive through Stanley Park, Vancouver’s coastal gem. Then take in some live entertainment and culinary delights at Granville Island Public Market.
Endless activities awaits you on your Whistler and Vancouver adventures!

Luxury Transport Inc. offers private Langley Wine Tours for small to large groups. We recently visited our local Langley Wineries to indulge in some fabulous flavours and take in some beautiful scenery.
Langley wineries are only about 45 minutes outside of downtown Vancouver and offer an extraordinary escape and memorable experience. There are a great number of first class wines to taste and some of the finest cuisine to be paired with it.
Truly a unique day tour experience!
Township 7 Vineyard & Winery oozes charm with a open-style tasting room overlooking the vines that produce their award-winning wines. Some of the grapes also come from the south Okanagan Valley. They are open year round, so you can pop in for a tasting or tour or even plan to attend one of their wine or culinary events or seminars.
Backyard Vineyards’s grapes are made from 100% BC grapes grown in their Langley vineyard with fruitful additions from the Fraser Valley and South Okanagan. They are known for their fun and bubbly wines and have been recognized both locally and internationally for them. They also offer an exceptional picnic lunch with a variety of mouthwatering platters to choose from for your group as well as charming indoor and outdoor tasting and picnicking spaces.
Vista D’Oro Farms & Winery prides itself in very traditional techniques and are dedicated to the production of unique wines made in small batches on their Langley farm. They grow their own produce on Vista D’Oro that is then used on their production and they stand out with their hand-crafted and unique walnut wine. Fresh and fabulous.
Domaine De Chaberton Winery & Bacchus Bistro is an award winning Langley Winery that sits on 55-acres of impressive property. It is the 3rd largest winery in BC and the oldest in the Fraser Valley. Guests are welcome to pack their own picnic to enjoy in their massive garden space and picnic tables out front or make reservations to dine in culinary French bistro bliss at their Bacchus Bistro. Their tour is well worth it with a walk-about through their private tasting room, their all impressive production machinary, and an up close and personal feel of their coveted Cedar Room full of fabulous wood barrels. They really allow you deep into the process.
Make time this summer for a private Langley Wine Tour! A 4-hour tour will take you to experience tastings and tour at all 4 of the wineries above and a 6-hour will allow time for a picnic or dining experience. Let us plan the day for you and take you on a wine and culinary experience to remember right in Vancouver’s backyard!
