Sara met us and was very pleasant and welcoming. She had a nice opening style. I was impressed because Vancouver was not her home town but she had a good knowledge and delivered her tour in a good style which made it interesting.

Sara was an excellent guide. She started off getting the small group acquainted. Sara shares interesting and detailed information about the history and culture of Vancouver this was my second visit but I saw more and enjoyed more thanks to Sara. Pacing of the tour was very good.
