Our private driver/guide, Chuck was very knowledgeable and handled the Friday afternoon traffic jams skillfully using alternate roads to get us to most of the city highlights. He gracefully tailored our tour to meet the needs of our party which had two older people with mobility limitations. The high end SUV was very comfortable, spacious and ADA compliant.

The dynamic duo,father and son, Frank and Nicolas were outstanding with their private city tour. They took us to Stanley park and other great spots for photo taking. We had a nice quick bite at Granville island. Nicolas is very knowledgeable about Vancouver. I would highly recommend Wild BC tours.
