A lovely, family-friendly tour led by Gary, who's been living on the island for 40 years! We did the "Salish Sea Tide Pool" tour that was just the right pace and length for my family of four that includes a 7 and 4 year old. Would recommend this tour as the spot Gary took us to seemed other-wordly. Would definitely recommend! Thank you Gary for your patience and calmness and for showing us all the wonderous creatures we saw along the way.

I booked a private sightseeing tour with Gary and a full day bird watching tour with Christopher. Both are amazing guys, extremely knowledgeable, polite and friendly. I had an amazing time! We saw over 60 species of birds with Christopher, and Gary took me to many beautiful places on Vancouver Island, including a perfect sighting of California sealions. The trips involve a bit of driving around, and we had plenty of interesting conversation along the way. One thing to highlight how much they care about their guests: at the end of my tour with Gary, he dropped me off in Nanaimo where I was picking up a rental car to drive up north. It was already dark, and he stayed with me to make sure that I get my car and I'm not stranded. One rarely meets such nice people nowadays (in the UK, at least). Thanks a lot for a wonderful time on Vancouver Island, Chris and Gary!

What a great way to be in the BC forest, walking and relaxing. Ronda and Gary took us on a slow meander through the forest, getting us to use all of our senses to relax and rewind and 'just be'. I felt relaxed and energized at the same time. I loved learning the history of the area, seeing culturally modified trees and really observing what was around me.

It was so nice to meet you this past week and a pleasure to guide your first forest bathing walk. May you have many opportunities to experience this wonderful way of connecting with nature and enjoying the wellness benefits of the forest.

Gary is very knowledgeable about the flora, fauna, and all the hidden nooks and crannies in the area. We thoroughly enjoyed our tour and learned a lot. We can’t wait to come back and do forest bathing! Gary’s revere for nature was also very inspiring. We highly recommend any of their tours!

Our guide, Gary, collected us from our hotel and asked if we had any preferences. We didn't really so he selected 4 places to show us - Englishman River Falls, Qualicum Provincial Park, Mooberry Winery and Wall Beach. All were amazing and Gary's knowledge of, in particular, local plants and trees was awe-inspiring. We particularly loved finding starfish at Wall Beach. We would definitely recommend this tour as a way of getting to know the area. Book it at the beginning of your visit to this area.
