We had a perfect day in Vancouver at the end of our cruise. Lois was waiting at the pier with our name on a sign--so easy! She was the consummate professional,extremely knowledgeable and lots of fun to be with. She was proud of her city showing us all of the neighborhoods, as well as key attractions like Capilano bridge, Granville Island, and Stanley park. She made us feel so special and we would certainly book her again. She had lots of room for luggage and dropped us at the airport in plenty of time.

Susie SnowdonUnited States
We were with Lois for two superb days in Vancouver. The first day we toured all around Vancouver: Stanley Park, a railroad museum, Granville Island, Gastown, water front, Chinatown, and the VanDusen Botanical Garden (for me as a gardener). Lois specialized the tour for our interests, had wonderful commentary throughout the day and was a really pleasant person to spend the day with. She went over our scheduled tour time with no problem. Her driving skills and parking karma were also terrific. Great day
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Susie. You and George were a joy to be with and I think we were a good team when it came to parking & weather karma! I am so happy you enjoyed the two days and I look forward to seeing you again!! Take care. Lois

John WintersUnited States
Lois did another wonderful job for us. This was a return visit and a second tour with her. That's how good she is! There were some rather unpleasant issues that were thrown at her on this tour which were totally no fault of hers. She rose to the challenge in a completely professional way and we could not have been more pleased with the outcome. Great job, Lois!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much John. It was a pleasure to see you again! Take care and hope to see you in the future. Lois
Mike HallockUnited States
Lois was waiting for us at the ship terminal when we arrived in Vancouver. Lois in a little over 5 hours was able to give us a tour of Stanley park (stopping at the totem poles), The suspension bridge (we spent a couple hours here and had lunch), Prospector Point, and we even walked around the gas light district and had ice cream while watching the steam chimed grandfather clock. Lois is a very experienced tour guide who shared a lot of information about Vancouver and the places we toured. Kudos to Lois!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Mike. We did cover a lot of wonderful things while you were here. My favourite was watching Christopher eat his ice cream intent on the Steamclock. I promise to send you the photos today. Take care and I hope to see you again in the future! Lois
Min LoUnited States
Wonderful tour of Vancouver with Lois. We were able to see all the sights and enjoyed every minute of our all day tour. Lois made sure we had stops for resting as us ladies in our 70s appreciated Lois constantly checking to see if we wanted to rest or go on. Lois was able to give information about the City without being boring.Thank you Lois for making this a highlight of our 2 week Alaska vacation !
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Min & ladies! It was so much fun to spend the day with you! I am so happy you enjoyed the tour and my wonderful city. I hope to see you again one day soon. Lois

Janet DrinnonUnited States
We were met by Lois after departing from the cruise ship. Immediately, we felt like we had known her for a long time. She's so welcoming, courteous and fun ! She reviewed the day's schedule, asking for our input in any adjustments we wished to make to the proposed schedule. As we were very tired from our trip already and not feeling well that day, she adjusted the schedule to meet our needs. She was very knowledgeable about the area and we saw the highlights of Vancouver is the few hours we had.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Janet! It was such a fun day to spend with the four of you! I would love to see you again, and I will put in a special request for less rain! Hope to see you again soon. Lois

Dinty StevensUnited States
Lois is certainly a top notch guide. What energy she has combined with knowledge and enthusiasm. We worked out a personal schedule since it was just the three of us so my husband and I plus our daughter got to see so much. She has even taken the time to follow up and ask about our travel home. Since Vancouver has so much to offer no doubt we'll look at another tour with Lois when time allows.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks you so much for your lovely comments. It was so much fun to spend the day with you and I am very excited at the prospect of you returning to this lovely city. Look forward to seeing you then! Lois

Donald WalkerUnited States
We thoroughly enjoyed our tour of Vancouver with Louis. Her tour was one of the best experiences we have had with Tours by Locals. We had limited time in the city, so we wanted to see as much as possible. Lois is knowledgeable, energetic, and just a wonderful person to spend a day with. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend this tour for anyone visiting Vancouver.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your lovely comments! It was wonderful to spend the day with you and get to know you as well. I hope to see you again soon! Lois
Carole EdgingUnited States
Lois T. was excellent. She was on time (actually early). Very passionate about the city. Had everything planned really well. She asked us if we had anything special we wanted to see. The day was wonderful. Also she got us to the airport in plenty of time to catch our plane. I would rate the tour and our guide with a 5 out if 5. It could not have been better!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Carole & Tom. Thank you so much for your lovely comments. It was so wonderful to spend the day with you and share my beautiful city. I hope to see you again soon! Lois

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Susan! It was a great day! Lois
Tina Richards-LynnUnited States
Wow, wow, wow! This personal sightseeing tour with Lois was just fantastic. Having limited time in town we wanted to maximize our experience and to try and squeeze in as much as possible without compromising on quality. Lois arrived to pick us up early and discussed our interests/wants for the day. Our needs evolved as the day went on and without prompting Lois adding some extra stops that were just awesome. She anticipated our every need. Highly recommended, this really IS the way to tour. Thanks Lois!!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you SO much Tina & Steve. I so thrilled that you enjoyed the day and the impromptu stops! It was so much fun to be with you both! Take care and I hope to see you again soon. There are many more awesome place I can show you!! Lois
David PlattUnited Kingdom
Lois is an ideal choice is you want a flexible, local guide, she accommodated us before departing on a cruise. We had a few hours before our ship left and she packed a lot into the day, she is an ideal choice if you want luxury travel ( her choice of car is ideal). I have no reservation in recommending Lois, she will deliver when it matters and make your time in Vancouver memorable.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your lovely comments David & Cathy. I had a wonderful day with you showing my beautiful city! Happy to hear the cruise was spectacular as well. Please do visit again soon, I would love to see you! Lois
Greg Meyerjacksonville, IL, United States
Lois was the best tour guides you could every have. She showed us the ins and outs of Vancouver. If their was a place we wanted to stop and their was a parking fee, she stopped and paid for the parking. She picked us up at the hotel right on time with water for both of us. And we asked if she would drop us off at a waterfront restaurant to end our tour, and that was no problem. If your in Vancouver please book a tour with Lois and ride in her new "bus".
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Greg & Julie! It was a pleasure to show you my beautiful city! So happy to hear you had a fantastic cruise. Look forward to seeing you again one day! Lois

Lois is a Joy to be with. She made my family and I very comfortable. We had a wonderful day in Vancouver - thx so much Lois. I would recommend her to anyone in that area looking for a great tour guide. The Chinese food wasn't bad either!!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks so much Nat!! It was wonderful to spend the day with you, and your family was a joy to be with. Come back soon and I can show you more wonderful forest trails and nature. I hope your flight home wasn't too gruelling and the Chinese food sustained you. Take care. Lois

Jennifer FalconeUnited States
We had a wonderful tour of Vancouver with Lois! We had a wide variety of interests and only one day to see it all following our cruise to Alaska. Lois met our every expectation and structured our day so that we fit everything in. She was knowledgeable and friendly and made our tour so enjoyable! I highly recommend Lois to anyone looking for a tour of Vancouver. We will definitely book with her again when we are next in Vancouver!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Jennifer. It was a delight to spend the day with you, your Mom & Aunt. I would love to see you again in Vancouver! Lois

Thanks Lois!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: And thank you Rachel. You were an absolute delight to be with and I am so happy you enjoyed our day. Look forward to seeing you again. Lois
David SheaUnited States
In short - Lois is great and I would highly recommend her as a local guide. She can build a tour to suit anyone's needs. My son and I came in from Whistler and wanted to see the city and the area. She put together a trip that covered the city's highlights then shifted in the afternoon to outdoor venues. We were dodging the weather and I was really impressed with how she chose locations. We got a lot of exposure to the areas and super views as the clouds moved away. Lois and Vancouver are great!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much David. It was so much fun taking you around Vancouver. Your enthusiasm, especially for the outdoors, was awesome. I was so happy that the weather turned for the better for us. Take care and I hope to see you again soon!! Lois
Jose (Joe) RamirezUnited States
We don't know where to begin--everything was fantastic. But, suffice to say that Lois is not only a true professional but also a joy to be with!! She provided us with a tour that we couldn't have imagined. She provided help with photos, after tour suggestions, restaurants, etc. She definitely knows how to make best use of available time without making it seem rushed. We never felt hurried or that we were leaving anything out. Anita and I would highly recommend her! Joe & Anita, Mission, TX, USA
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you both for the wonderful comments! You were a pleasure to be with and I hope to see you again very soon. Lois
Marsha TaylorUnited States
I am so glad I saw your site on Trip Adviser. Lois Was Fabulous. Easy to work with, helpful, fun to be with. Working with her enabled us to do exactly what we wanted. This was our first trip to the North West and did not wanna waste time fumbling around renting a car, getting lost, etc. We will recommend you and Lois for anyone else coming to Vancouver. We will be back next year and shall call upon you again.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Marsha! It was such a pleasure showing you & Vernon my favourite parts of this great city. I am so happy the two of you are 'hooked' on Vancouver and look forward to seeing you again next year. Lois
Ting Tina ChenHong Kong
Undoubtedly the most friendly, knowlegable and accommodative guide we have ever encountered. An experienced professional with attention to details, Lois made us felt really welcomed, relaxed and at ease with both tours, and her abilities to gear the tour to suit our group that includes the eldery and the very young is most helpful. We would most certainly ask for her expert guidence again shall we return to this beautiful city!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Tina. Your family was a delight and I thoroughly enjoyed showing you the city. I do hope to see you again very soon. Lois
Jane ZeilstraUnited States
Lois could not have done for us! She included everything that we requested and then some! But it was the extra touches like the treats at the market or the photos she took and the personal insight into 'her' city that I will always remember. If you get the chance to spend the day with Lois as your tour guide, DO IT! It will be worth it!
Robert RosatiUnited States
Lois provides an excellent tour of Vancouver. She knows a lot about the city and shows you all the major sites. Our family had a great time throughout the tour and enjoyed the entire day. The tour was definitely one of the biggest highlights of our trip, not only for what Lois showed us but her wonderful hospitality. It was a pleasure meeting Lois and if we are ever back in Vancouver, she will be our guide. Thanks
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your wonderful comments! It was so much fun touring your family around Vancouver, I felt part of the family! I hope you had a wonderful cruise and I hope to see you again soon. Lois
Bruce BowerUnited States
This was our second tour with Lois T. Her service is exemplary. Our first tour included my wife's 90 year old father and the second our 10 and 6 year old grandkids. She tailored each to their diverse and specific interests. Her knowledge of the area is extensive and fun. We saw what we wanted to and went where we wanted. Her advise was spot on. If we return to Vancouver and are looking for another tour I wouldn't consider any one except Lois. Five stars is not enough for her. Bruce.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your wonderful comments Bruce. You, CJ and your family are an absolute delight and a pleasure to be with. Take care and I hope to see you again very soon. Lois
Thank you Lois, excellent tour, as always!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: And thank you so much Jes! It is always such a pleasure show them our city! Lois
Shari CurtisUnited States
Lois was by far the best tour guide that we've ever had! She was thoughtful, very knowledgeable and went out of her way to make our day special. We felt very welcome, as if we were visiting a friend we'd known for years. We had a limited amount of time in Vancouver, but I don't feel like we missed a thing. My mother-in-law has difficulty hearing and Lois made sure that she was well taken care of. I really can't say enough about how wonderful Lois was. You can't go wrong!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Shari. Thank you so much for your wonderful comments. I am so pleased that you enjoyed the tour. It really was a wonderful day and I wanted to carry on with you to Oregon!! I do hope to see you again very soon. Take care and hello to everyone. Lois
Bruce BowerUnited States

Naomi M.Torrance, CA, United States
There are "musts" when visiting Canada but the #1 must is to take a tour of Vancouver w/Lois! Energetic,informative,great personality! Felt like we were hanging out with a friend for the day. She gave us suggestions and tips before our trip and tailored our tour with us by email so she made sure we saw everything we wanted to when we got here for our 8hr tour. After our tour, she told us to call her anytime for anything while we continued our trip. We love her and you will too!! Naomi and Jeff M.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: THANK YOU so much Naomi & Jeff! People like you are a tour guide's dream, and I too felt like I was with friends for the day. Please come back and visit soon - I still have so much I would like to share with you! Lois
Nancy RasUnited States
Lois was stellar. She was both informative and personable and was able to answer every question we had while being flexible and able to accommodate changes we requested so that the tour was as personalized as we could have hoped for. We couldn't have made such great memories of Vancouver without her! We are so very appreciative. You will not be disappointed with Lois!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your wonderful comments Nancy. It was such a pleasure to show you around Vancouver and I hope to see you again soon! Lois
