Our time with Kenan was great! He was punctual in picking us up at the cruise terminal. Keenan has a wealth of knowledge about Vancouver and its history. It was a rainy day, so we cut our visit to the park short. We had a nice tour and learned a lot about this beautiful city from Kenan. He dropped us off at the airport after our tour which was very helpful to us.

A very comprehensive tour both in the city and its environs. Kenan was very amiable and knowledgeable. We felt like we had a comprehensive tour of the city and its past and current history.

My travel companion and I had a wonderful time touring Vancouver with Kenan. He is so knowledgeable, friendly, helpful, considerate and interesting. We only had a few days in Vancouver and are so glad we decided on his tour. He went above and beyond to help us figure out how to get to the airport via the Sky Train, gave us tips on where to eat and other possible places to visit for our remaining time in Vancouver. I would recommend him to anyone/everyone.

Kenan showed us all of Vancouver which was what we wanted in the short time we had. Unfortunately rainy weather was a bit of a nuisance, but the rain is needed there desperately so we did not mind too much. We felt the money was well spent and we saw more of Vancouver in our time with Kenan than we would have on our own trying to navigate public transport, etc. Thank you Kenan for a great day.

My husband and I had a tour in Vancouver, BC with Kenan on 8/2. We just returned from a month vacation and I am finally now reviewing our full day excursion with Kenan. He was a wonderful guide, extremely knowledgeable and professional. He was prompt and gave us options on how best to utilize our time, dependent on our preferences. We couldn't have had anyone more kind or considerate than Kenan. We were blessed to have him on our only day in Vancouver!

I read many positive reviews on Tours By Locals which were all positive . I booked a day tour of Vancouver which turned out to be much more than we expected. Kenan picked the 4 of us up at the end of our cruise, gave us a wonderful tour, with stops, of the city. Later dropped us off at the airport. I cannot say enough about our guide Kenan. He is so knowledgeable about Vancouver and respectable of his clients. The company is great to work with. Response to my questions were immediate when I was booking.

Kenan definitely knows his facts and is very knowledgeable about the city. The Gastown and Beyond tour is good if you're a history buff. However, it might not be too interesting for kids/teens. Be aware that this tour will pass some of the 'unsavory' parts of the city (not Kenan's fault at all, just part of life in this area of Vancouver).

An incredible wealth of knowledge, just the kind of tour I was hoping for. He's a REAL local, tells you stuff that makes you feel like a local. An incredible amount of travel squeezed into the 6 hours. Sad we couldn't have done it for longer, but would definitely seek him out to be our tour guide again for another tour.

It is hard to imagine a better guide than Kenan. Our day and a half with him was thoroughly enjoyable, not only for the excellent tour of Vancouver and his remarkable knowledge of the city and environs, but in getting to know this remarkably well-traveled, worldly, intelligent, kind, interesting man. We will be disappointed if we do not find future opportunity to engage with him again, whether in guiding or whether he responds to our invitation to visit us at our home. A truly outstanding experience.

Kenan displayed a remarkable understanding of the history, politics, and social interaction of Vancouver and British Columbia. He is also expert in the architecture, flora and fauna, and geography of the area. He personifies the best of the melting pot that makes the city so interesting and welcoming. It was also a real pleasure spending the day with him.

Guide was very knowledgeable about Vancouver. Also very accommodating with respect to our likes. His knowledge about history and social subjects added much to our conversation during the tour. Our stop at Granville Island was enhanced by his treating us to incredible tea (we would love to get the specification). Highly recommended.

We greatly enjoyed our tour with Kenan. It was informative, professional and interactive. Much better than other (more expensive) tours that our travel agent booked for us. Definitely a 5 out of 5. I would recommend him highly. Especially since he introduced me to the best chai tea I've ever had;)

Kenan deserves more than five stars. His knowledge of Vancouver was outstanding. We covered more than 5 miles on our walk including many hidden gems. Kenan was able to give us information on everything from architecture to colorful characters in Vancouver's history. It was a very enjoyable afternoon. He was right on time and made sure we knew how to use the public transit to get back to our hotel.

We could not have been greeted by a more pleasant, accommodating/knowledgeable tour guide than Kenan O. in the beautiful cosmopolitan city of Vancouver, BC! He was totally flexible, learned and highly qualified to answer our numerous tourist questions and requests. He and his family have lived there some 20 years and he knows his "backyard" like the front of his hand. Helpful... kind... great conversationalist... and eager/able to tailor and customize our family of four tour to meet our needs! KUDOS!

Kenan, was very polite. Informative and interesting. This tour went through the various boroughs of Vancouver from high to low. Also included a ride on the local rail transport. Considering how recently established Vancouver apparently is, which I wasn't aware, the history was very interesting.

What a beautiful day! We are experienced travelers and would highly recommend Kenan to anyone who is interested in a tour of Vancouver. Kenan was amazingly gracious and knowledgeable as he guided us through Vancouver's highlights and gave us a wonderful understanding of what makes the city unique. He could read our interest level at each location and gave us ample time to enjoy - never feeling rushed. It was a pleasure to be in his company.

Booked a Vancouver city tour with Kenan for my parents and they absolutely loved his services. He covered a comprehensive list of attractions in the city and provided great commentary and company. Very knowledgeable not just about Vancouver but the world. He did the tour according to the pace they wanted and took them for lunch to a place that met their dietary restrictions.

Kenan provided us with a full day of exploring greater Vancouver, respecting our wishes to avoid long and difficult walks. He picked us up at our hotel on time. His SUV was comfortable and roomy. He was very knowledgeable regarding the history and geography of Vancouver. He speaks English very well (and 5 or 6 other languages including Japanese). Overall a wonderful experience.

Had a wonderful time in Vancouver and on Kenan's tour! Although it was cold and very rain during the tour, Kenan still managed to help make the tour enjoyable by not only arranging transportation but also fulfilling my special requests like trying out Poutine and going to Tim Horton's. Kenan's knowledge of the city is truly impressive and he was able to provide me with all sorts of interesting facts and trivia all throughout the tour. 日本語 も 話せます! Would highly recommend Kenan to anyone visiting Vancouver

Our tour with Kenan was excellent. He met us at our hotel for what was scheduled to be a 3 hour walking tour, but since it was raining he offered to drive us around the city. He is very knowledgeable about the city's history, its culture and its people. No questions were off limits, and we spoke for hours as he drove us through beautiful Vancouver. Luckily, it stopped raining and we were able to walk through Gastown as planned. I highly recommend him, he is experienced and organized, and was a pleasure.
