Happy New Year!

(back to blog)

The sky is bright and clear in Vancouver on this final day of 2014. What a year it's been! ToursByLocals efforts to promote local guiding as a fun and meaningful way to travel resulted in us reaching a milestone: 250,000 travellers served! Helping our guides around the world reach an audience of a quarter million people was cause for celebration.

We've had some terrific media coverage this year, with ToursByLocals guides featured in the Globe and Mail, UK Telegraph, Yahoo Travel, Huffington Post, CNN, Toronto Star and Lonely Planet, among many other online and print publications. We love it when people who have never heard of ToursByLocals get to learn about our team of exceptional guides!

Another milestone was moving into our new, larger office in downtown Vancouver. While we hadn't expected to outgrow our old office so soon, no one was complaining about the bright new space overlooking the Burrard Inlet. We're now a staff of over 20 people!

Speaking of staff, we brought some wonderful people on board this year. It already feels like they've been here forever, but welcome again to Ken, Melanie and Marty in Customer Support, Steve and Bruno in Guide Support and Kevin in Accounting.

We'll be toasting the year that was and the year to come in our boardroom this afternoon. Everyone's glass will be raised to future success for ToursByLocals and our guides around the world that work so passionately to enrich the travel experiences of hundreds of people, every day.

Happy New Year! May 2015 be filled with exceptional travel adventures for you and your family.
