Winston provided excellent communication and service from the time we reached out to him via email the very first time. He was prompt with all responses. He was funny in all of the communication we had while travelliing together today. His knowledge of Victoria was superior. There were 6 of us in our 60s on the tour and he paid excellent attention to each of us and made sure we were all happy with this service and his recommendations. He helped us with plans for the next day in Vancouver.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks a million for this incredible feedback, Neal! I had an absolute ball with you folks from the City of Fountains and am glad that you enjoyed the City of Gardens. And yes, I will refresh my cribbage game and will continue to dominate, especially in noise-free, non-drinking establishments. All I have to say is: James Naismith was Canadian! Safe travels, always. Winston
David ConnerUnited States
Winston was very knowledgeable of the area. His personality fit the job. Our group of 11 people were all impressed and thoroughly enjoyed being with him. If you have a choice for choosing a guide use Winston.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for the glowing recommendation! Your group was quite amazing to work with and we had an equally amazing day. All the best in all of your travels! Winston

I had the pleasure of escorting a group of 7 last Sunday to Victoria and Butchart Gardens. We also had the pleasure of having Winston as our guide! From the start he was an amazing guide with his knowledge, personality attention to detail and his making sure everyone was happy. He had to navigate Victoria during a very busy day, (with the holiday) And did so to perfection. I would give him a 10 out of 10.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for the glowing feedback, Kim. I really appreciate all of your kind words and praise. Your group and you, especially, were a joy to tour with. My hope is that our day was memorable for a long time to come. Winston

We spent two days with Winston and he was terrific; Vancouver to Victoria Day Trip and Vancouver Top to Bottom. Winston was engaging, knowledgeable and a joy to have as a guide. On day two, I had an incident falling on steps landing on my two artificial knees. Winston was extremely helpful in getting first aid and was very flexible in dealing adjusting the itinerary. As travel agents, we have experienced many tours and these were the very best. Highly recommend him; he made our stay in Vancouve
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for the wonderful and glowing feedback, David. Your group was outstanding in your collective knowledge and it was very pleasurable to tour with you. I hope your knees continue to strengthen and I wish you continued safe travels. Winston
Roy TaylorDerby, DERBYSHIRE, United Kingdom
He had corresponded with me for several weeks before the tour, answering questions and sorting out fine details. He picked us up from our hotel on time and his friendly, personable style quickly won everyone over. He gave us lots of interesting information, found out what we wanted to do and became a considerate, knowledgeable friend in the group rather than simply a tour guide. Everyone enjoyed the tour and would highly recommend Winston to anyone who wants to tour Vancouver.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Roy and new friends! Thank you for the extremely positive feedback and raving reviews. We had an idyllic day from dawn until dusk and I'm glad that everyone in the group had a great time. May Vancouver always rank high in your memories of your extensive travel. Winston

If you are considering a ToursByLocals in the Vancouver area, I hope you are as lucky as we were to select Winston W. as your guide. Even with a rainy start and surprise modification of the ferry schedule on Sept-17-2016, Winston made sure our day tour to Victoria and Butchart Gardens was stress free, fun, and filled with a truly interesting, local perspective about the region. Winston customized the day to our pace and interests. We were able to visit historic neighborhoods and off-the-beaten-path areas
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Awesome feedback, Susan. Thanks for a great day in Victoria (and in transit). You and your friends are true world travelers and I'm glad that our extended tour ranked as highly in your memories as it does. Winston
