Excellent service from Scott and Epic Rides. Fast, efficient, friendly and unreal value for money. Most other options were gonna be at least $100. Perfect pick up location downtown and straight to Whistler village. Highly recommended!
The ride with Scott and epic rides was great! The value was by far the best option we were able to find for getting to Whistler. The ride was punctual and we made great time getting to our destination. It was wonderful to be dropped off at the front door four hotel! Would use this again if returning to Whistler.
Couldn't make my return trip on time, email Scott and the situation was easily resolved, no Greyhound politics here! Thanks Epic Rides and Scott :)
