The resort town of Whistler is internationally known as a world class ski and snowboard destination. Boasting two impressive mountains, Whistler and Blackcomb, this spot is an outdoor paradise. Below the mountains lies Whistler Village, the buzzing hub of this community. The village is full of boutique shops, lively entertainment venues and an exemplary culinary scene – and with millions of visitors each year there is something to satisfy every appetite. Award-winning restaurants and chefs serve up exceptional entrees which make choosing a place to go for dinner (or breakfast or lunch), one tough decision!
Savvy visitors and locals alike turn to Whistler Tasting Tours to sample some of the best cuisine Whistler has to offer. Officially designated as a Signature Experience by the Canadian Tourism Commission, Whistler Tasting Tours exemplifies a once-in-a-lifetime experience that showcases what Canadian tourism is all about. Their dining tours feature top restaurants from favourite après haunts to fine dining establishments and everything in between. The two highly popular dinner tours are even paired with local, BC wines.
