I booked Alfred after reading reviews on Trip Advisor and I knew immediately from the detailed itinerary he sent me that he was our guy! We were driven around in his comfortable vehicle for the 4 hour tour. Alfred provided expert commentary about the various areas of the city and Vancouver's interesting history. There were some short stops along the way for photo ops and a quick bite to eat on Granville Island. All five of us felt as if we had seen so much of Vancouver in a stress free way! It was definitely worth paying a little extra for this enjoyable private tour.

We had a day to kill in Vancouver between getting off the cruise ship and going to the airport, so we booked a private van tour with Private Tours Vancouver. It turned out to be a wonderful tour. We had been to Vancouver before and taken the hop on/hop off tour, but it didn't really given us the understanding of the city's neighborhoods and ethnic diversity. The day we spent with our guide Robert Sung, provided that understanding. Mixed in with the history and culture discussion were photo stops and a mini food tour. It was a great way to spend the day. We give Robert and the tour our highest recommendation.

We finished our 10 day Alaskan by stopping in Vancouver for 2 days. Alfred from Vancouver private tours took all 10 of our party (6 adults and 4 kids) to see the best of Vancouver for 5 hours. Alfred offered us his incredible knowledge and appreciation of the city where he has lived for many years. We went at a leisurely pace and stopped frequently to stop at various sites. Loved everything about this city. Beautiful setting on the water, flowers in bloom everywhere, great markets and shopping, and very kind residents. Alfred could not have been better as a guide with expert commentary as we went along. Recommend this company for anyone who wants to have an overview of Vancouver and its environs.

My husband surprised me with a private tour for my birthday. I was greeted by Alfred our tour guide with a bouquet of flowers and a happy, smiling face wishing me a happy birthday. Alfred was very knowledgeable about all the history in Vancouver. He took us to different neighborhoods to show us the diversity in the city not just Downtown. It was very enlightening and educational. Alfred speaks four different languages which is great if you are coming from different parts of the world. You can tell he really enjoys what he does and takes pride in his tours, clean, comfortable vehicles, and makes sure we are having a good time. Take a tour you won't be disappointed. Thank you Alfred and we will be back some day!
