      Beautiful scenery and learnt a few things
      From the time we were picked up from our hotel, Nafees was great! Not too much walking and saw some beautiful scenery and learnt a few things about our Nikon and iPhone cameras

      This was amazing! Nafees was extremely knowledgeable and knew where all the spots to go and what time to go to beat the crowds. Which was awesome! I was a solo traveller and felt completely safe. Book the day!! :)

      Great photo opportunities and lengthy snowshoe adventure.
      Nafees was a great guide for a tour of the Whistler area. This tour starts in Vancouver but since I was staying in Whistler, Nafees picked me up at my hotel with 2 other lovely young tourists that he had shown the Squamish area. We snowshoed quite a distance to the beautiful Nairn Falls and he was incredibly patient with my fear of heights, kindly helping me when I struggled in spots. We also stopped at some other beautiful sites near Pemberton. Nafees navigated my desire for artistic photography sites with the other’s desires for Instagram/selfie photos quite adeptly and made the tour enjoyable for all.

      Deep cove hike
      A lovely hike that was just the right mix in between a fresh walk and a little challenge. Nafees made it a nice experience with good conversation and offering to take some keepsake photos. A morning well spent!

      An absolute MUST if you're visiting Vancouver!
      I cannot speak highly enough of this tour!! Nafees was the real deal--the perfect guide, historian, and photography guru. It was SUCH a joy learning about Vancouver and the surrounding regions while driving through the most picturesque landscapes. Both a local and photographer himself, he knew of all the prime stops--and those lesser known--for the best photos. Even though I was a novice, and traveling with only an iPhone and Android, Nafees was incredibly patient and shared a ton of tips on how to get the most out of my camera apps. The trip itself is breathtaking and perfectly timed to allow for sight-seeing, photoshoots, and even a lovely lunch break at Whistler Village! I absolutely loved hearing about the history of the region, including the people, the land, and the wildlife. Hands down my favorite tour/day of the trip!! 100% worth it. :)

      For snow and nature lovers
      Our trip to Whistler and Squamish was truly amazing. Along the way we made several stops to enjoy the beautiful Canadian nature. There was always a chance to take some nice pictures and Nafees gave us some special tricks to improve our photography skills! We also learnt about the indigenous culture, which was very interesting. We were lucky with the weather and saw a frozen waterfall that only happens once every 10 years. On an off-road snowshoe trail we saw another waterfall. Nafees looked after everyone and was very open to any questions we had. I would highly recommend this trip to anyone who likes the outdoors and wants to visit the Olympic place.

      THE best way to see Vancouver
      I can’t thank Nafees enough… this was such a fantastic day, which he made so easy to enjoy. He was courteous, professional, patient, friendly and knowledgable. This was absolutely the best money we spent while in Canada. Don’t think twice… book this guy!!!

      Amazing Time
      I had a fantastic time snowshoeing and taking pictures alongside an excellent guide. We got lucky that there was a fresh dumping of snow and the sun was out.

      Well worth your time
      This tour was structured so as to optimize both lighting and location for truly scenic landscapes. There were also more opportunities for great wildlife photography than I was expecting. It pays to be flexible on the dates of this particular trip as the experience is so weather dependent. Nafees shared very helpful tips on both smartphone and DSLR camera settings and there were many opportunities to use them. As a solo female traveler I had no concerns whatsoever about my safety and security and he knows the area well. The hiking is not too demanding for someone in reasonable shape, but wearing comfortable, broken-in shoes with traction, layers and keeping the camera equipment light and compact will make the trip more enjoyable. Bring snacks to Lake Louise/Morraine and bring a cloth to wipe your camera lens or smartphone screen in case of unexpected rain.

      Keep is in suspense!
      Although the bridge may not be as dramatic as what’s on offer at Capilano Suspension Bridge Park, the price is right - free except for parking. There’s a lovely café on site, too, where you can get warm and dry and have a hot beverage and a Nanaimo bar.

      Great quick tour
      My daughter and I did this on our recent trip to Vancouver. The guide was very friendly and personable. He took us on a short walking tour, provided us with some good tips for taking better photographs, and we got some good shots of my daughter and I together. I would definitely recommend this tour if you have an interest in photography.

      Great location and useful tips
      I learned a lot about some very useful Iphone photo features - and have already put them to good use! Gastown is also a great location for night photography.

    Amazing!! Nafees was excellent at guiding us through all the lakes and showing us tips and tricks with our cameras and cells. We were able to fully enjoy the beauty of these lakes and hike. Nafees has a great personality, great photographer, we love all the pictures he took. Great memories, great pictures, great experience. Highly recommended. Thank you Nafees!

    Absolutely stunning! What an incredible hike to do. Though going in places but so worth it! From the fabulous glacial lakes to the roar of waterfalls you just cannot get better.
    Advice would be to start early as the trail gets busier during the day. Bring a light towel as there is nothing like standing in glacial water to revive the feet! But be warned it's freezing!!!

    Great car ride and hike with Nafees. This is a long car ride to get there from Vancouver but we stopped 3 times during the round trip to stretch our legs, go to the bathroom or get some snacks. The hike itself is very beautiful and Nafees is a very good photographer that will take multiple (great) shots of you and will guide you to its favourite photo spots. He can also help you with manual settings on your camera.

    I went on a solo work trip & had some time to kill in Vancouver so I decided to book this hike! Nafees the guide is extremely kind and made the hike a wonderful experience, from great conversation and sharing his knowledge of Vancouver and being a naturalist along the drive and hike was an absolute joy! The hike was moderate and steep in some areas but with gorgeous stops along the way. I would recommend this to anyone wanting a beautiful hike, nice photos, and a good time with good people!

    Nafees was an incredible guide who hiked with us through all three lakes. He knows the trails, the rangers, and the best spots for photos and views that the other tourists don't know about. The convenience of him picking us up at our hotel combined with his park pass for our access to Joffre was unmatched. We wouldn't have been able to do this trip without him and would recommend this experience to any of our friends. Joffre itself is a moderate level hike that requires a few water breaks due to some of the steepness. However, it was one of the most beautiful hikes we've ever been on that was well worth a full day of our vacation. Plus, you get to swim at the upper lake which was most definitely a highlight of our trip!

    This is our first hike and we had a great time. The hike itself was tiring but the view at the lake was really worth it. Nafees was really helpful in giving us advice on what to do and what not. He also took great photos of us and gave us tips on how to take better photos. Thank you Nafees!

    Did a short trip to Vancouver whilst working in Canada and was keen to hit some Vancouver hikes. Nafees came recommended and was definitely not disappointed. Nafees is very knowledgeable in the history around the hikes and his photography skills. He's also a great guy to chat with and made the hike much more enjoyable.

    Had a fantastic time on hiking with Nafees and exploring the beautiful Joffre lakes. Knowledgable guide who knows the area well and had funny stories to share. He also brought hiking poles as I requested them, was mindful of the pace, and took great photos to capture the day. Enjoyed the experience so much that I booked another hike.
