Would only do the River of Golden Dreams again if we had the groupon. Regular rates are too high.

A bit more screening of the groupon guests to determine their skill level. It would have been helpful to have had instruction prior to departure. The river was very low in areas and we were not prepared properly for the adjustments that were needed as a result

The expiry ate was confusing on the groupon. Everything else was good. May add things to wear & bring/not bring on their add.

I feel the price for our groupon was good value. i probably wouldn't spend the non groupon rate though.

On the downside, the operators were inexperienced and didn't really show us all there was to know about the kayaks. The loooong portgage was also not explained well enough and not nearly enough trolleys to portgage the kayaks.

You should have told us that our groupon for 2 in a canoe would include a $32 extra charge for our 10-yr old son. It is not like we had an extra watercraft or anything so I'm not sure why you told me about the $6 charge for tax but not the charge for our son. Not a nice surprise to show up with $6 change in hand and be told unexpectedly about the $32 more. Be up-front with your clients, they will appreciate the honesty.

Philip was a awesome guide, explained the area well, gave us plenty of warning for upcoming obstacles. Excellent experience. I will come back next time I am in Whistler. Thanks!

From Our Editors

The trees that shade the banks of the River of Golden Dreams have been there longer than anyone can remember, lining a mostly undeveloped area that continues to attract visitors to its natural spoils. Along with Atla Lake—which remains free of oil slicks and pollution due to bans on water-skiing, wakeboarding, and cigarette breaks for working beavers—the area still thrives with wildflowers dotting its riverbanks and bald eagles flying overhead. For the past 25 years, Backroads Whistler has done its share to help keep the environment pristine by hosting a variety of nonpolluting recreation, which include paddling sports, fishing, and cycling. Paddle past distant snow-capped mountains and bike along winding woodland trails on unguided, semiguided, or guided tours, the latter of which includes plenty of tidbits on Whistler's history and wildlife. Canoe, kayak, and boat rentals grant further access to the lake, while aluminum fishing boats come loaded with gear for catch-and-release sessions where guests can swap kelp recipes with 3- to 5-pound trout. Around nightfall, twilight tours drift down the river as wild birds and black bears emerge to greet the evening.
