Vancouver and Whistler co-hosted the 2010 Winter Olympic Games, but Whistler has long been considered Canada's premier alpine resort and mountain playground during summer and winter. On this tour we follow Highway 99 as it firstly hugs the shoreline of Howe Sound and then snakes through the valleys of the Coast Mountains to Whistler.

For the drive back to Vancouver, the commentary is all different so its just like a whole new to tour to entertain you all over again. Along the tour we recount some of the most memorable stories from the Olympics, as well as pointing out scenic places to stop and interesting stories and foklore from the area.

Begin this tour by driving along Georgia St towards Stanley Park. The first commentary will play just after crossing Denman Street. In addition to the commentary, GyPSy will also provide you with directions to stay on track. The map will display your position and upcoming audio points. You can also preview the tour before you arrive, or relive your vacation after you return home.

Once downloaded, the tour requires no data exchange to operate and activate the commentary points, so you will not have any data costs. Just download the app from your Wi-Fi network at home before you leave or use free Wi-Fi at the airport, your hotel or any other location.

** Important: If you are downloading the tour to an iPad it must be a 3G model or higher. If the iPad is wireless only - it will not automatically activate the commentary which requires GPS function. Any iPhone 3G, 4 or 5 will activate just fine.

This tour is not just a directory but a designed tour to follow, just like how a tour guide would take you. It’s simple and entertaining; just let GyPSy provide commentary automatically as you drive.
