    This was amazing. I've never rock climbed before and if you can climb a ladder you can do this. This gives you the feeling of rock climbing without actually rock climbing. You're strapped in at all times and they give you training on how to do it. Felt completely safe and relaxed at all times with our guide Guillaume. Will definitely be doing the Via Ferrata in Whistler next. Professional company, easy to book online, quick responses with any questions, ran on time. Strongly recommend!

    Exhilarating, challenging, with beauty views…such great fun! Our tour guide, Oliver, was super…he made sure he taught us the essentials and we were safe at all times, and he took some great photos!

    Daniel was our tour guide for the Squamish via Ferrata tour. It was an amazing experience that definitely got me out of my comfort zone safely. We were treated to some amazing views on a nice day. The gear was in good shape and while we moved at a decent pace I felt safe at all times.

    Our guide Dan was fantastic in helping all of us on the via Ferrata. It was an exhilarating experience, with breathtaking views. We enjoyed it a lot, definitely one of the highlights of our trip (so far). It was not so tiring as I expected, maybe because of the adrenaline.

    This was one of the best activities I've ever done. It had the most incredible views ever. Wasn't hard at all, and good for kids to see the beauty of nature. Our guide Nolan was fantastic. He took lots of pictures for us, and was very nice

    Our guide Dan Paplawski was amazing. He was encouraging, super patient as we took tons of photos and videos and made our experience one to remember. I had moments of fear and Dan was able to calm me and help me move past it.

    We met Corey Woolnough and Erica at the top of the gondola. We immediately felt reassured that we were in safe hands, having established that Correy had survived El Capitain! As novices to rock climbing we felt that the route gave us tthe full experience of climbing with the reassurance of ladders, safety ropes and excellent guides. Corey gave us clear safety instructions and enetertained us on the route whilst we were hanging on with our fingertips, pointing out features like bear claw marks on the trees, rock formations and was exceptionally knowledgeable about the geology amd geography of the local area. We felt the route challenged us and gave a real sense of achievement at the end.

    The tour started with the downhill portion of Sparky’s Spin trail. Then up we went on the iron rungs! Training was great: always clip in, always have one clip attached even when you’re switching wires, drape the lanyard across your forearm like a purse. Easy peasy. Climbing was exhilarating. We took a break halfway up on a metal bench with our feet sticking out toward the forest. Views were stunning. Photo opportunities were abundant. Diego, our guide, was professional and shared our excitement. Tips for the guide are welcome; you may want to make a point of having some cash in your wallet when you go.

    As a solo traveler I was the only one who booked, and MSAA rescheduled me, I guess they don't earn their money with just a single paying customer. So solo travelers must have this in mind. The view was amazing, but the climb was easy. This is a perfect trip for beginners. As an experienced climber this was too easy for me, but I enjoyed the view, a lot. Well worth the money.

    My girlfriend and I did the Squamish Via Ferrata Tour and it was super fun! Our guide Maya ensured we were comfortable with our safety gear, how to use it and what we should expect on the tour. She was very patient and was always in the right spots to snap the best pictures with the best views. For a guy like me who is not very active it was a good challenge and definitely something we'd recommend for a family excursion. Overall great experience!
