Vancouver and Dubai Guides Lead Media Guests

(back to blog)

A couple of our guides on opposite sides of the world led some special guests on tours this past weekend. Travel writers were visiting Vancouver and Dubai and ToursByLocals got the chance to show two very different journalists around these two very different cities!

Our guide Lois in Vancouver met with Ben Clatworthy, a UK journalist from leading British adventure publication "In the Snow". Ben was being hosted by the Whistler and Vancouver tourism boards while he was in BC researching an article on "Olympic Legacies" three years after the 2010 Winter Olympics. Luckily the spring weather cooperated, and Lois was able to take Ben for a walking tour through downtown Vancouver to see the Olympic Cauldron, BC Place, the Athlete's Village and more.

Sunil in Dubai spent time with an entirely different type of travel writer. Mario Nicholas, a travel blogger, YouTube star and all-around social media guru, met up with Sunil for a day-long trip to Abu Dhabi from his hotel in Dubai. In his (tweeted) words, he was "blown away by the amazing cultural tour" Sunil delivered.

Sunil and Lois are both stars in their own right - thank you guys for representing ToursByLocals with your smiles, expert local insight and willingness to go the extra mile to ensure travelers have an unforgettable experience.
