"What a beautiful local experience"

I met with Candace this morning who was kind to meet me when I got off the bus too early. We began our walk and every piece of information was wonderfully explained. She is a great story teller and engaging to listen to.

I have lived in Vancouver for 7 years and took this tour from the recommendation of a teacher at my college. I got so much more than I expected. A wonderful tour for people of all ages and backgrounds. Truly important knowledge of the ways of life that is vital to the peoples of the coast.
