    My favourite day in Vancouver so far!

    This was the most amazing day ever! I have lived in North Van for 9 months and this was my most favourite day yet! Brent was unreal as a guide. The tour was so fun with great food and wonderful people. I can’t wait to do another one! To be able to see where you live with a guide is the way to go! I will visit all of the places we went again! I couldn’t be more pleased with the experience I had! Would recommend this to everyone!
