Daniel M.

Victoria, British Columbia, Canada

I'm Victoria born and raised, and have spent the past 10 years working in tourism and hospitality.

As your guide, I'll show you Victoria and Vancouver Island as I know and love it - through truly local eyes. I'd be delighted to show you Victoria and Vancouver Island, and all it has to offer. I'm proud to call this area home, and so excited about the rich history, culture, beautiful parks and gardens, breathtaking scenery and world-class attractions.

I offer my tours at an unhurried pace, with ample time to stop, explore the sites along the route, and with ample time at your destination. I love to share Victoria's history, a local perspective on Victoria today - how we live, where we go, what we do. My service standards are exacting. I spent years working in the hotel industry, and my touring philosophy reflects this.

I'm a passionate foodie. In my time off, you'll find me perusing farm market stands, experimenting with local ingredients or international flavours in my kitchen, or exploring Victoria's incredible restaurant scene.

Curious about what it's like to live in Victoria? I'm happy to answer your questions about "life on the Island" as we tour around the city.

A Recent Review of this guide

Daniel provided us with an in depth tour of Victoria, stopping at various landmarks and tasting local beers, wines and foods. His description of the sites we visited were both historical and in depth. His knowledge of Victoria was impressive and his storytelling was amazing. We hit it off from the moment we met Daniel. He is so proud of his city and his enthusiasm and knowledge were infectious. We highly recommend him to anyone visiting Victoria.
