As well as city tours of the Vancouver area, I currently guide 1 & 2 hour to 1/2 day tours of our local mountains and have been doing so since January 2007. My tours are on a personalized basis so dates & times are flexible. I customize the hike/snowshoe to the physical ability of the customer and find trails that are off the normal tourist trail.
I am very reliable, friendly, outgoing and have been in the travel/tourist industry for the past 30 years visiting more than 60 countries of the world. I look forward to meeting you.
A Recent Review of this guide
Lois was an outstanding guide. She went above and beyond in planning our day to Victoria. She arranged for us to dine at the legislative dining rooms in Parliament House - which was a highlight. She was a wealth of information and could explain things in an easy to follow manner. Butchart Gardens was a highlight and Lois tailored this part of the tour to maximise our time there. We really enjoyed Lois' company and the day flew past as we were having such a good time.
