We were so fortunate to end up with us being the only ones on the tour the day we went. Though it was rainy and cold Michael, the owner of the company, made our day a wonderful one. With his almost 40 years of living in Vancouver we learned and saw things that few others could have provided. By far the best tour we have booked and we would do another one with him. Cannot recommend enough.

Very insightful and professional tour. Micheal was a knowledgeable host with everyone person's safety (driving & assisting with mobility issues) at the forefront. Covered a broad range of points of interest around greater Vancouver, which we would not have covered on foot. He was a wealth of knowledge about Vancouver and aspects of his personal life (fishing). Clean, large and comfortable vehicle.

Michael is a very knowledgeable and experienced guide. He shared all kinds of interesting tidbits about Vancouver and he knew his way around the city and surrounding neighborhoods very well. I would have liked to have spent a bit more time on Granville Island exploring the market (some free time here might be ideal), but it was a great way to see Vancouver and the bonus stop at La Casa Gelato was nice on what turned out to be a rainy afternoon.

The tour guide was wonderful, the agent working for viator needs more training. She directed us to a pick up point a mile from where we were staying. Called the tour guide directly and he picked us up at our hotel… which was on the lust of pick up points

I always call the guests the afternoon before the tour to make sure of making sure. I regularly inform my clients of pick up times and fine tune locations, its standard policy . Michael Lawrence

Nice guy but he ordered 2 appetizers at lunch and told the waitress to put them on OUR BILL I would if made a scene but their were others around. I am sorry I tipped him, my husband said the appetizer he had billed us should of been his tip. That WAS VERY WRONG TO DO.
icon Response from Host , Aug 2021
Ouch, I originally told the waitress that both Roti was on my bill and when she asked me a second time who was paying for what I repeated myself and then to add to the confusion of who was paying for what my guest offered to pay for my lunch so the waitress had both my roti on the bill, that's why I always pay for my own meal that solves any problems and I wish she had said something i would made amends immediately. it wasn't my intention to mischarge anybody.
