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).

Kenan was an excellent guide and I would highly recommend a tour with him. My husband is disabled and he took extra care to make sure the tour accommodate his needs.
Michael Ashington-PickettUnited States
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.

Kenan did a great job with our tour of Vancouver. Knows the area and history very well, and was able to answer all our questions. Was also very patient with my hyperactive kids.
Alden AkselsenUnited States
Kenan is a friendly and very knowledgeable guide. It was a great way to see a lot of Vancouver in a day.
Kenan showed my friends from Japan around Vancouver. They said he did an excellent job - very knowledgable, friendly, and fluent in Japanese! Highly recommended!

Fantastic guide and very knowledgeable about Vancouver. His greatest benefit was his knowledge of the world and ability to carry on a conversation. He also took pictures for us and sent them to my son. Would highly recommend

The very best; see rating for prior day.

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.
James McConnellUnited States
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.
David Carolyn EckhoffUnited States
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!
Robert WattsUnited States
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.
Dean RosowUnited States
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.
Pritam BaruahUnited States
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.
Jeffrey EhlenbachUnited States
Kenan was pleasant informative and knows Vancouver from its origins to the present including the rezoning issues so evident along Cambie Street . We had a day that met and easily exceeded expectations.
Herbert NatofUnited States
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

Very courteous, prompt and knowledgeable. My wife and I had a fun day with Kenan and met his wife and children.
Patricia BemerUnited States
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.
Harry StruthersUnited States
He had a great tour provided by Kenan in Vancouver. He was very knowledgeable and good at sharing that with us. We will highly recommend Kenan!
