First class, highly recommended. Basically, our tour guide Gabriel was completely flexible in adapting the tour to our wishes, including stops that weren't actually there, leaving others out. He knows everything, has everything under control, is very helpful, takes care of everything and was also flexible in terms of time (a little longer). Since the chemistry was right, it was also a good time on a personal level. We would never do anything else in Vancouver again. There is really nothing to complain about, especially since we only booked for 9am the night before!

Kevin was an awesome tour guide full of information about the places he took us to, nothing was an effort would recommend Kevin as a tour guide
