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 a great guide that we would use again and highly recommend to anyone. We saw different sights than you would on a tour bus at our own pace, stopping when we wanted to. Lois' level of customer service was exceptional, nothing was too much trouble, even stepping outside her comfort zone to learn chess with our 13 year old while allowing us to explore Butchart Gardens. Her communication before the tour was excellent, her knowledge of the area fantastic and her car very comfortable. Worth every $.
