This tour was by far the absolute best way to get a 5 hours overview of Vancouver. Winston is among the most personable and likeable gentlemen that we've encountered and he provided the perfect amount of information for us. He tailored his tour to our specific needs and kept us very interested in the sights. He accommodated a couple of special requests we had and made us feel very relaxed and welcomed. We could not have chosen a better guide for the day.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Craig and Karen, I can't thank you enough for the glowing feedback. I, too, had a great day with you both and wish you the very best in your future.

We really enjoyed our tour of Vancouver with Winston. He was very responsive to my pre tour questions and punctual in picking us up. He has lived in Vancouver all his life and is proud and passionate about his city. He was very flexible during the tour to meet our requests. We discovered the dragon boat race preliminaries when driving by and we stopped and enjoyed watching. He is very intelligent and we enjoyed him sharing with us some of his family's cultural history. We feel we have made a friend there
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for such wonderful and descriptive feedback, Annette. It was great to tour with you! All the best in your future travels.

Winston is a true professional! He provided us with a complete and informative tour with his in depth knowledge of his home town. If you visit Vancouver trust Winston to be your perfect guide!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you, Mike, for the outstanding feedback! I really couldn't have spoken about so many subjects without you and your group's insightful questions and poignant curiosity. It was truly an honor touring with you all. (And I'm inspired by your custom Prevost!)

This was our fourth Tours by Locals experience and the best by far! Not that past experiences weren't exceptional but we thoroughly enjoyed Winston! He even provided chop stick lessons at one of his family's favorite restaurant. We've already booked another tour with Winston for our post cruise stay in Vancouver!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for the 5 star rating, Melissa and Allen! I really look forward to touring with you in a few more days. And I appreciate the opportunity for an encore with you!

What a great look at Vancouver by a great guy that loves his city! On our own, we managed to start with a mediocre start. However, once we met up with Winston, everything came together for a memorable day! Six thumbs up!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Jim, Thanks so much for these fine comments! Glad that we were able to spend some enjoyable hours together. I wish the best to you, Steve and Carol Ann.

Our day with Winston was fantastic. He did a wonderful job showing our group of ten Vancouver. We all had a great time. Thanks Winston for a great day!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for the great feedback, Bob. Glad you've forgiven me for the "hike/climb" down to Siwash Rock! All the best to your family. Winston

Wonderful tour - knowledgable and friendly guide. We had a child on crutches and he cheerfully adjusted the tour to accomodate her limitations. Also, very flexible as to our interests.

I booked this tour only two days before our arrival in Vancouver. Winston promptly answered my email and was extremely cooperative with the fact that I wasn't sure how many of us would be on the tour. He picked us up on time at our hotel and spent five hours showing us the best of Vancouver. He was entertaining and very informative. At the conclusion of our time, Winston made two trips to the cruise ship to get us all there along with a multitude of luggage. Winston was great! I highly recommend this tour
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Mary Ann, Thank you so much for your glowing feedback. It was my pleasure spending some time with you and your lovely family. I hope everyone has wonderful memories of Vancouver. Winston

Winston did an incredible job on this tour. He was able to adjust the tour to the weather and we had a fantastic time. I would highly recommend Winston

Winston was a really interesting guy to travel with. I learned all about Vancouver, municipal, provincial and federal politics in answer to my and other traveler's questions. 3 of us are Canadians who had been out of the country for 20 years or more. There was nothing about Vancouver or Canada he could not or would not answer; he is obviously knowledgeable and proudly Canadian. Driving around was fun, and the places he took us to were great. Stanley Park you've got to like, and Granville Island fun.

Winston was "Wonderful"! My husband & I were delighted with the casual climate of our tour and the friendly companionship of Winston. Our tour felt like an old friend was sharing his city. We talked about flowers and gardens & all of the special interest points of Vancouver. Thank you Winston for the lovey day and the perfect weather!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was a true joy touring with you and Jim. I am very glad to hear that Vancouver was one of the high points of your vacation.

Winston is the perfect tour guide. He is knowledgeable, timely, and courteous. He carefully adjusted the tour to meet the expectations and preferences of my group. As he did, he filled the tour with historical background, hilarious commentary, and useful advice about how to spend our time in Vancouver. It's obvious that he loves what's he doing and he loves meeting new people. I'd give him six stars if I could.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: John, thanks for the feedback. Your words are a boost to my ego. And it means a lot coming from such a fine group of world travelers. All the best to you and your family. I hope our paths cross again.

Winston and Nina were excellent tour guides. They were prompt, personable, helpful, well educated, conversational, and we all felt like we had known them for a long time. We developed a wonderful friendship. As an agent, I will recommend them to all clients that prefer an informative, fun day in Vancouver to Winston and Nina and Michael did a great job getting us through the city.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks, Freda. You and your group were simply a joy to deal with from top to bottom. We hope you have wonderful memories of Vancouver!

Winston W. is simply the greatest! Our group consisted of four mid-aged ladies who had never before had the pleasure of visitng Vancouver. We felt safe with Winston and feel as though we've made a new friend. We told Winston what kind of things we would be interested in seeing, and he adjusted the entire tour accordingly. We are so happy that we ran across the Tours By Locals web site and found Winston. So much better and more personalized than touring any other way! A great value, too!
