Wild BC Tours and Guiding
Intent on helping visitors explore every nook, cranny, and scenic overlook that western Canada has to offer, the guides of Wild BC Tours lead an eclectic assortment of sightseeing excursions tailored to the interests of their small groups. These outings include everything from a half-day walking tour of Vancouver's fashion and arts districts to a comprehensive 15-day sojourn from the coast to the Rockies. Specialty trips might include whale-watching or wine-tasting outings amid British Columbia's majestic landscapes.
By keeping tour groups relatively small, guides have the flexibility to provide a more organic experience and to occasionally deviate from a set plan. Often, they will do so by offering insights into the area's wildlife, geology, history, or forest-animal gossip. All that makes for leisurely paced, informative outings that never have groups rushing from one landmark to the next. Comfort is a priority too, and the guides take care to transport adventurers with care. Luxury SUVs and limousines carry passengers during metropolitan-area tours, Segways let visitors see more on trail tours, and other trips rely on glacier buses and whale-watching boats to facilitate escapes into the western Canadian wilderness.
