    We booked the double ride of both Fly over Hawaii and Fly over Canada. It was amazing however it would have been nice to know what I was actually looking at. I prefer the Fly over Canada as it had more realistic experience such as the water mist when flying over water. Both were great and the staff got us on earlier ride since we arrived early and there was space available. Little pricey for the 20 minute ride

    Went on a day that wasn’t too busy but still crowds, just smaller crowds.
    Have to say that $20 admission is definitely not worth it. To boot, food costs are just excessively overprice. No longer able to see the grand prize home, just able to see one room and pictorial facades of rest. Kinda Zzzzzzz. Went through this in about 2 minutes. Prefer the days when the line ups were long but you got to see the entire house. Even though we grew up in Vancouver and have been regular PNE visitors, in recent years it’s been feeling like a tourist grab and just gouging all around.
    We enjoyed one of the outside shows, Flying Fools and the bandstand area had some students playing ABBA music which was relatable. Also, there was lots of seating which is a plus.

    Parking in $25. Most places do not take cash.
    Market Place and Food options are great!
    Shade areas to eat are near the Farm building.

    Sept2022.A great way to see the city.Paulo,our guide was informative,interesting & entertaining.And was conscientious in checking everybody was ok along the journey.
    Vancouver has designated cycle routes around the city allowing Paulo to take us ‘off the beaten track’ which meant we saw far more than we might have done otherwise.There were sufficient photo opportunities throughout the day which helped create a leisurely pace.Everyone thoroughly enjoyed their tour& were glad they’d chosen that option to see Vancouver.

    A group of us did this back in September. It was a great group thing to do, we had such good fun. Mainly though, I cannot commend the guides enough. They created a fabulous fun atmosphere and were extremely knowledgeable and friendly. Our guide in particular made our trip! We hope to be back next year!

    Three out of the four in our group had never fished for sturgeon. We are all experienced fishermen looking for a new adventure. Fishing 3 days on 2 boats we all caught sturgeon each day. Some of the fish caught were over 8 feet each day. The fish were handled carefully and always swam away strongly when released. Our group has used guides all over the world and found that Lang and his guides are very professional. You will not find a better guide service that fishes for sturgeon. I would highly recommend Lang’s Fishing Adventures.

    We bboked a group of 8 for a day trip Sturgeon fishing, we booked in late November so we were anticipating wet weather and cooler temps which we did have. The boats had nice coverage with heat to warm up. The fishing experience was fantastic! We found the guides very knowledgeable and personable and a joy to spend the day with. We had excellent luck and had a day full of catching these giant prehistoric fish. The largest we caught was 7ft 11 inches and absolute monster!! The booking process was very easy and Mariko was very accomodating and responsive. I would highly recomend this to anyone looking for a fishing experience of a life time,

    What a fantastic experience !!!

    My awesome fiancé booked an adventure for me and my best man today and what an amazing time we had. The cars were in perfect condition (and sanitized for the covid) , Thom and the team were friendly and informative making sure we were ready to get behind the wheel for a rip up the most beautiful stretch of highway in Canada.

    I was worried thinking it would be a short low speed follow the leader type day but I was sooo wrong. Obviously always staying safe and obeying the traffic laws but given the space and opportunity to really feel the power and handling these amazing machines have to offer.

    We took the Ferrari and the Porsche, both awesome... I would absolutely recommend this adventure for visitors from out of town or locals looking for an adrenaline rush!! I know I will be back for more.

    Thanks for the great day Thom !!

    We had such an amazing tour of Vancouver by bike and Patrick is the most knowledgeable and fun tour guide I have ever met. Coming from Vancouver, Patrick knew all the things about the city that you won’t find in tourist guide books. Fully recommend this tour as it takes you on an adventure into history as well as along spectacular sites. He is fun and funny - definitely a treasure in and of himself of Vancouver. Highly recommend.

    Over the years I have been on several fishing trips to Haida Gwaii Salmon fishing staying 4-5 nights at a time. Nothing compared to the experience I had with Captain Eddie from Pacific Angler. The experience we had was nothing short of amazing. In one 10 hour day my son, friend and I caught 12 King Salmon most of them weighing in at around 19 to 20 lbs. the largest I caught was a Tyee weighing in at 36 lbs 8 ounces. I would highly recommend Pacific Angler their staff and guides are excellent.

    Chromer Sport Fishing

    Vancouver

    Once in a lifetime

    The 2 half days that I spent with Jon MacArthur and the full day with Yos Gladstone fishing the Squamish River have left me with memories that I will treasure for the rest of my life.... If you are planning a fly-fishing experience in British Columbia there are only two "things" left for you to do....

    Firstly: Launch a search from your favorite browser and watch the video clip so aptly named NOT A SILVERSPOON EXPERIENCE

    Secondly: Contact Yos Gladstone and book your fly-fishing Odyssey.... for a fact certain you will not be disappointed rather you will have the time of your life.

    I simply do not have sufficient command of the English language to find the correct adjectives or superlatives to express my heart felt gratitude and sincere appreciation for Chrome sports hospitality and the unforgettable experience that I had with Yos and Jon in the spectacular Squamish valley fishing one of the most beautiful rivers I have ever seen.... Thank you just seems hopelessly inadequate, and 5 gold stars are just not enough.
