An easy amble with occasional stops for our guides to drum, chant and point out different plants and how the First Nations used them. Be prepared to leap aside for speeding cyclists.
I appreciated the guides sharing a bit about their personal backgrounds, particularly why and how they are trying to reclaim their native heritage. The tour is one initiative in that process, so visitors are also engaged in it in a small way.

We took the Talking Trees tour at the summit of the Sea to Sky Gondola! What an excellent tour by our guides Sito and Tyrone. They shared their knowledge about their culture as well as the challenges the Indigenous people have to face. Sito was drumming and singing for us and believe it or not the clouds disappeared. We could see "the Chief" and heard a wonderful story about it. Tyrone had brought Labrador tea which was delicious. We learned so much and truly enjoyed all the knowledge that was shared with us. Can only highly recommend it!
