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 was a fabulous tour guide. He was thoroughly entertaining as well as knowledgeable about the city of Victoria. We toured Buchardt Gardens as well as many neighborhoods around the city even stopping to let us take pictures of the deer, landscapes etc. I would highly recommend Daniel as a tour guide!!
