Absolutely to suggest. Our expectations of seeing and experiencing Vancouver as it really was were fully met. During a walk we got to know a lot of worth seeing and impressive points and also saw pages of Vancouver that you would otherwise not get to know. Our focus was to get an overview and an overall impression of Vancouver. You, Chantal, have succeeded completely. Thanks again for that.

Great tour

We did the tour with Elisabeth. Elisabeth inquires in advance, via email, when we will arrive in Vancouver, what we would like to see / explore. We gave her a list of things we would like to see. Flexibility is everything. We were picked up at the hotel as requested and off we went. Elisabeth drove with us to places that we would not have been able to reach without a car and that we would not have found at all. She also took the time to talk to us about the advantages and disadvantages of a possible emigration. What we found very great was their help after breaking into our rental car. She made phone calls to the police and car rental company. For Elisabeth you get extra thumbs up from both of us. All in all, it was worth it for us to do this tour. Very small drop of melancholy, but what nobody can do was the weather. It was not raining but unfortunately cloudy.

Enthusiastic and up-beat Maria (from the Caribbean) kept us smiling.

Maria was a brand new but natural tour guide when she showed us around Downtown Vancouver. We enjoyed our walk on Water Street, a nearby Chinese garden, and a walk past an intriguing science center to catch a water taxi back to the base of the Granville bridge. Maria, may you share your love of your adopted city with many tourists in the years to come.
