Doug M.

Richmond, British Columbia, Canada

I have traveled the world for ten years and have never seen a city as beautiful as Vancouver.

From the world's greatest park to the most livable neighbourhoods in the most beautiful city in North America; this city is a walker's dream. Mild climate, spectacular vistas, great shopping, historical buildings… it's got everything a visitor wants!
I have designed and conducted tours for people from many different walks of life: from senior citizens to parliamentarians; from architects to historians; from airport layovers to cruise ship day trippers… I have helped them all.
I want to show you the best of Vancouver with your interests and needs in mind. My goal is to make this the best tour you have ever had.

A Recent Review of this guide

We had a great tour with Doug . . . he contacted me just prior to our arrival in Vancouver and offered to meet us at our hotel, which was a great help and allowed him to show us some of the city as we headed to Granville Island! He was very knowledgeable, friendly and enjoyable to listen to! Afterwards, he emailed me answers/information about some of the questions we had as well as a link to a recipe for the Nanaimo bars that he treated us to! It was a wonderful way to start our visit!!

Restrictions

I conduct walking tours that may also use buses, trains, and water taxis.
If you can't walk at a leisurely pace for 30 minutes at a time then I would not recommend these tours.
The water taxis are not easily boarded by strollers and wheelchairs.
