Upon our return from a cruise, Winston picked us up at the port. We then took in the sights of Stanley Park, the Aquarium, the Vancouver Museum and many places along the way. Winston was our private guide through the museums. He has a treasure trove of knowledge about the area and its people and history. He and my husband could talk all day!! He was a joy to be with and we learned so much about Vancouver and Canada. I would highly recommend Winston.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I am so pleased that you and Mike enjoyed all of the high points of Vancouver. Your timing in the City was spectacular, and it was a joy taking you both around. Next stop, Whistler!

Our guide for an outstanding four-hour UnDowntown tour of Vancouver, Winston, knows this city like a true insider. Born and raised in Vancouver, Winston gave us a very helpful introduction to the different neighborhoods, beautiful views of the skyline and mountains to the north, and walks through Queen Elizabeth Park and VanDusen Park, topped off with a memorable treetop walk on the catwalks located across the Capilano River after a daredevil stroll over Capilano Suspension Bridge.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you, Ben, for the eloquent feedback. It was a joy to enjoy the February sunshine with you and your lovely wife. I know it wasn't your first Vancouver trip, and may it not be your last! All the best in the future, Winston
The tour of undowntown Vancouver was fabulous with great weather. Winston was on time, friendly, helpful, knowledgeable, and has the absolutely right personality for this job! He was flexible, and listened to us as much as he talked, which was delightful. I would definitely book a tour with him again. It is SO nice to have admissions to destinations included in the price, so we are not always passing around money. I would make the payment default in Canadian funds however. Thanks Winston!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for the kind words, Irene. Such a nice feeling to have impressed a local resident - it’s not every day that we get to play ‘tourist in your own town’ and guide out of towners at the same time. Safe travels in the future and I hope we cross paths again.

Winston was creative, knowledgeable, and flexible in planning this tour to suit the desires of our group. His stories and facts as a Vancouver local added an interesting dimension. We loved the places we went, and had a lots of fun and photo opportunities on this tour!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Yes, we had a good day in Vancouver. Even with the forest fire haze, we were able see a lot of the city. You have a very enjoyable family. Safe travels, Winston

Great tour led by an engaging guide who planned appropriately to meet our preferences. He managed time well and shared his knowledge of, and enthusiasm for, the vibrant city of Vancouver.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your feedback! Great to hear how you seasoned Vancouver visitors were still impressed with various gems around the city. And your close connection to the Chan Centre also made our tour somewhat memorable for me. Thank you and safe travels.

Great tour despite heavy rains! Winston did a great job under adverse conditions-even had umbrellas. We were able to see, and experience, everything we had discussed over many months. Chinatown was a high point - especially the pork buns! We covered so many areas of the city that we didn't know existed. He has a great personality, is a wonderful conversationalist and his knowledge of the city is second to none. Our tour could not have been better. Hats off - if it is not raining - to Winston.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you, Frank and Peggy...we did Vancouver well! Thank you for braving the weather and allowing me to guide you on your visit. Safe travels always...Winston
Winston was awesome! Communication was excellent right from the very first contact via email. He welcomed us warmly at our Vancouver Hotel, and was friendly, professional, and extremely knowledgeable. Obviously a lot of care and consideration had gone into planning our tour, and we hit all the 'must do' sights on my extensive list (thanks for your patience, Winston!!). The car was very clean, smooth and Winston was a great driver. Totally recommended. Thanks Winston, you rock!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks, Kerri!! Wow, I have received some glowing feedback over the years but your kind words may have taken the cake! Thank you for being such a great family to tour with and being so attentive to my ramblings. Safe travels! Winston

Winston and Yuki were terrific. Due to unexpected rain we tailored the tour to meet our needs and had a wonderful lunch at Kegs in Granville island. They were professional, helpful, very courteous to all family members and the tour exceeded our expectations
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for the kind feedback, Bob! Both of us had a great time with your exceptional family and we wish you the very best in your future travels.
Lily ShueUnited States
Winston is outstanding. He showed us all the places that normally would not be covered by regular tours. Thank you.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you, Lily, for the kind feedback. It was a pleasure showing such well-travelled people a deeper level of Vancouver.
Laura GableUnited States
Excellent service, good energy. Enjoyed UnDowntown-Vancouver's Best Kept Secrets, chose MOV and this was perfect for 2nd, 3rd time visitors to Vancouver. Great recommendation for lunch at Seasons (Queen Elizabeth Park) with a great view of the mountains from the outdoor patio. Very flexible and he went out of his way to make sure we learned about Vancouver's history. Highly recommend.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for the fabulous feedback! It was a great day with a group that really appreciated the deeper levels of Vancouver. With the addition of a couple more people halfway through the tour, we could have used a bit more time, couldn't we? (Next time ;-)
Roberta WesterfieldUnited States
