“Best Day out”

Pacific Rainforest Adventure Tours Inc
Reviewed April 3, 2013

We just got back from a day trip with Gary & must say we had the BEST day out, Gary is full of knowledge of Vancouver Island & showed us plenty of great sights & we learnt so much more about the local flora & fauna. Seen a few of the beautiful Bald Eagles, deer, seals & other birds. I would highly reccommend this tour to anyone visiting this area, it is well worth it. Thank you so much gary for such an enjoyable day. Well worth the 19 or so hours it took us to get here from Perth Western Australia :)..

Pacific Rainforest's Brant geese tour was excellent.

Gary was a very good leader and Christopher Stephens has a deep knowledge of birds and brings wry humour to his commentary as well. It was a truly enjoyable experience.

Parksville is renown for being a stopover for Brant geese on their spring migration from Mexico to the Arctic. Even though I have lived here for 7 months, I joined Pacific Rainforest for a 1/2 day Brant field trip. Gary's local knowledge, and the expertise of the bird researcher who helped lead the trip, Christopher Stephens, made for an engaging and educational 4 hours. I would happily recommend Pacific Rainforest to anyone visiting the area.

Gary and Rhonda, Thanks so much for the great tours. I was on your day trip to the west coast and on the wine tour. Both were fabulous. You will be highly recommended by me. And if I come back, we will tour with you again. Notice I said we at the end... :)
Thanks again,
John from Kennewick, WA

Thank you for the review John. It was great to have you along on both those tours and want to say how much we enjoyed your sense of humor too. Yes we did notice the "we" and are curious?
We look forward to seeing you again on any future visit.
