I was extremely fortunate to take the half day Highlights of Vancouver tour with Lois. She is an incredibly friendly, personable guide who showed me many interesting sites and neighborhoods I would have not found on my own in one afternoon. She was attentive to personalize the tour to my interests. Her touring SUV was clean and posh. I recommend Lois and this tour without reservation. I had a great time!
