Mahara picked us up from our downtown hotel and showed us the highlights of the waterfront, Gastown and Chinatown before a wonderful visit to Granville Island. We so enjoyed the market and many artisan shops where we made a few prized purchases. Mahara dropped our group and luggage at the cruise terminal to end our memorable half-day tour. Mahara has an extensive knowledge of the area and good feel for what makes a memorable experience for the group. We definitely recommend Mahara for your next visit!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Jerry Thanks for your five-star rating. Most kind. It was a pleasure to meet you and your family, and I will you all the best. We had a fun few days! Mahara

Mahara provided a timely pickup from the Vancouver airport and a wonderful day starting with a visit the quaint fishing village of Steveston. We enjoyed an excellent seaside lunch at the Blue Canoe and continued with an overview of the diverse towns within Greater Vancouver including the north shore. We experienced many different neighborhoods and unique qualities within each, as well as the beautiful scenery in and from Stanley Park. The Honda Odyssey minivan provided ample room for people and baggage.

We had a wonderful tour of Vancouver! It was obvious that Maraha knows her city well! Mahara, as well as our group, were disappointed that vandalism ruined the gondola part of our trip. Maraha did her best to replace that part of our excursion as best as she could.

We couldn't have had a better tour. Mahara was so informative and interesting, obviously passionate about the city she loves. Capilano Forest and suspension bridge were spectacular, and we then received an excellent description of all the other areas we visited - covering the whole city and it's environs. Lunch overlooking the harbour in West Vancouver was idyllic and we ended the day in the markets in Granville Island. We thank her very much indeed, and can't wait to return to such a beautiful city.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Carole and Ian, Thanks so much for your wonderful comments. We did have a fun day. I hope the wedding was wonderful. I'm happy you've enjoyed the Vancouver portion of your Canadian trip. It was great to meet you both. Thanks again, Warm regards, Mahara

Mahara gave us a great tour of Vancouver. She was extremely knowledgeable, flexible, and we couldn't have asked for a better tour. We were somewhat apprehensive of crossing the Capilano Suspension Bridge but she reassured us and it turned out to be a great experience walking through the area on both sides of the bridge. You can't go wrong using Mahara if you want to experience Vancouver and the surrounding area.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Jay, Arlene, Helene and Bob, Thanks for your kind words. We did have a great two days. It was a pleasure to meet all of you and to show you our beautiful city. It was wonderful to have all your questions and to discuss with you the various aspects of change facing the Vancouver area. I wish you all the best. Warm regards, Mahara

Mahara gave us a great tour of Whistler. While the drive to Whistler was long, she kept us interested by sharing her knowledge of the Vancouver area on the way up and stayed with us as we toured Whistler and the peak-to-peak gondola which was breathtaking. I highly recommend Mahara for tours involving Vancouver and surrounding area.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Jay, Thanks for your kind comments, and sorry to be so late in responding. It was wonderful to meet you all and to share such good discussions. All the best to you. Thanks again. Warm regards, Mahara

Mahara gave us a wonderful tour of Vancouver. She was very informative and pleasant company for the day we had to spend in Vancouver. The only thing that was difficult was figuring how to meet up with her at the cruise port. It was no fault of hers but it is not well marked at the cruise port how you are to meet up with your tour guide so it took us a while until we could figure out what we were supposed to do.

We absolutely loved our Magnificent Vancouver tour with Mahara.....we were picked up at our downtown hotel in her beautiful and very comfy van. Mahara was friendly, extremely knowledgeable of her beautiful city and surrounding countryside. Couldn't ask for a better guide to spend the day with, learning all about beautiful Vancouver! We especially loved Capilano Bridge Park!! Wonderful day in the Vancouver area with an exceptional guide!!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Linda and Dennis and Steve and Wendy, Thank you so much for your wonderful comments. It was a pleasure to tour with your group. I am sure you will have a fabulous cruise and that you will enjoy the beautiful Pacific Northwest. Thanks again. Warm regards, Mahara

Our day with Mahara was lovely and special. She started out asking what types of things we wanted - did we want to shop, hike, etc. Mahara took us through the entire city with her knowledge of the history and growth of Vancouver. She was interesting about each spot she took us to, and cognizant that I had some walking difficulties. Her car was clean, she was so very nice. It was a wonderful day of learning about Vancouver and seeing all the things we had hoped. HIGHLY RECOMMEND

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Arlene, Thanks so much for your kind comments. I really enjoyed spending the day with you and your husband and to share your experiences. I hope you had a wonderful cruise, and all the best in your future plans. Warm regards, Mahara

Mahara's tour was wonderful. She is a terrific tour guide, and my entire family loved her tour of the entire city of Vancouver. She was very thorough with her tour and we never felt rushed in any way. Mahara is very personable and my daughters found it very easy to talk with her, and ask many questions while we were on the tour. We highly recommend Mahara for any tour of the Vancouver area.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Jim and family. Thanks for your wonderful review, and my apologies for my slow response, as I was away. It was my pleasure to show you about. Your daughters are very lucky to have wise parents, providing guidance as they make their way in this challenging world. I hope you enjoyed your walk to Gastown and the rest of your stay in Vancouver. Thanks again. Warm regards, Mahara

Mahara was great! She was very patient with us in planning our tour in that we kept changing our minds as to what we wanted to do, even at the last minute, but she just went with it. She was very nice and extremely knowledgeable about the Vancouver area. I highly recommend her and ToursByLocals. A private tour is so much better than those large group tours!
