Welcome to the year of the DO…so do Whistler and let’s make some memories!

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!
The best food and drinks from around BC and beyond will be highlighted at the festival from November 5th through 15th, 2015.
These well planned events and galas will take you through a culinary journey to be remembered!
