A Recent Review of this tour

Our Vancouver private tour with Lois was simply outstanding. She arrived before time with a suggested plan due to possible rain. However, we were fortunate enough for the sun to come out for our visit. Lois is so passionate about Vancouver. She was thoroughly professional and nothing was too much trouble. We look forward to doing another trip with her in the future. Anne & John
