Mahara was wonderful. She really showed us Vancouver in just four hours. She even showed us some of the seamier side, which gave us a much more balanced view of this wonderful city. I really feel we came away understanding what Vancouver is all about rather than what tourist sites it has. Highly recommended. Vancouver really is a wonderful place and well worth a visit.
