Jenn

Vancouver, BC, Canada

I love living in Vancouver and enjoy sharing local experiences, culture and places "off the beaten path" with visitors.

I am also proud to practice sustainable tourism offering environmentally friendly tours that support social responsibility.

Whether you are visiting as an independent traveller, in a group or attending a conference or meeting I have an option for you! My tours offer unique local experiences, visiting key neighborhoods and providing perspective on why Vancouver is such a liveable city!

My interests vary from hippie to hipster, yoga to climbing mountains and coffee to craft beer, and my passions are travel, outdoor activities, health and wellness. I am continually in search of new restaurants, events and places of interest and enjoy staying on the "pulse" of the city. Find me on Instagram @jenninvan to see what I mean.

As an avid traveler I love meeting people from around the world and learning about local culture. Having also lived in various other parts of Canada and overseas I am happy to provide you with a broad Canadian perspective and recommendations of other places to visit and explore.

The tours listed are only a sample of what I can offer. I am pleased to customize tours based on what you would like to see and do in the time you have available. I am fluent in English and French and pleased to serve you in either language.

Running, walking or cycling options are available for some light physical activity or a workout while seeing the sights. These tours are ideal for taking in the scenery and exploring various neighborhoods while experiencing some of the outdoor activities locals enjoy.

Groups of 2 - 8 people are ideal, however, I am more than happy to accommodate larger groups. Family, corporate and special group tours are welcome.

I look forward to meeting you and showing you around!

A Recent Review of this guide

Jennifer was an absolutely wonderful Tour Guide. She loves her city and thoroughly enjoys sharing her knowledge with others. I brought my parents on the tour as they had never been to Vancouver before and they felt they got to see all the main highlights and they learned so much. Vancouver is lucky to have Jennifer as a guide! It was the unique experience we were looking for.
