My experience with the Tour Guys Vancouver was great from start to finish. They were super accommodating for our special requests, organizing a tour just for our group that focused on our particular area of interest and working within our time schedule, all for a VERY reasonable price! Our guide was excellent; not only knowledgeable about the history and culture of the city, but also able to respond to our many and various questions. If anyone is traveling to Vancouver for the first time, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend that they do a tour with Tour Guys.

This was a pretty good walking tour. You do learn some things about Vancouver but I feel our tour guide knew more about random tidbits about Vancouver than the actual history, as this wasn't her full time job either, just a part time gig. I've done walking tours where the tour guide was obsessed with the city and was a walking history book but this wasn't it. Still a good tour though and you do learn a lot of things, I would take this walking tour if I were you, and tip!

This is a very good way to get acquainted with a city. The concept of free walking tour assures the guide works to hold the attention of the group through the end of the tour. Brian in downtown and Gastown, and Erik in Chinatown, did their jobs very well. Groups are smaller in wintery weather and they allow for interaction but keep the group together and on schedule. They introduce little known tidbits of history and lore that make the city more familiar. Thanks to the Tour Guys I feel that I know Vancouver much better.

Eric lead a fantastic private tour through the city of Vancouver emphasising the architectural highlight's with related history. It was my friends birthday and as this is a passion and profession...Eric shared many highlights and fun facts. We saw so many things we never would have found or seen. More for us to see closer on the next get away to this beautiful city. He was knowledgeable and personable. We highly recommend!!!

I took the downtown/waterfront tour today with Erik, who was a fantastic guide. He really seems to know his history of the area and cares a great deal about sharing what he knows about the city with his group. I highly recommend.
