We did a tour for hubby's 60th birthday. Matt took us for breakfast in Granville Island then a trip round the city before an outstanding day in Squamish. He is knowledgeable and super friendly and was happy to fit the tour to our needs. An amazing day had by all 7 of us on the tour! Thanks Matt - I would totally recommend to anyone.

I lead a group of energetic travellers every year to various cruises and land tours in different countries and I must say that Matthew from A.E. Vancouver Private Tours is way up in my list of outstanding tour guides.
We found out that Matthew is from Nova Scotia but spoke like he was a true Vancouverite. He is incredibly knowledgeable on Vancouver, Whistler and Victoria.
He customized the tour in such a way that we could see all the important sites and yet set the pace based on the group’s fitness level.
There were so many photo opportunities of the places where he took us. He took stunning shots of the group with the various landscape with his iphone and shared them with us.
Matthew went above and beyond in making our Vancouver visit amazing! The group cannot thank him enough for everything he has done for us.
As for me, I will definitely recommend Alfred’s team (A.E. Vancouver Private Tours) to any of my friends and colleagues who want to discover the best of Vancouver.

Matthew was on time to pick the four of us up from our hotel in a clean large GM vehicle. He gave us a personalized 4 hour tour of the area after asking our interests. We had ample opportunities to get out and see various sights, and he was a wealth of information about the area and its history. A grea experience that allowed us get get the flavor of the area from a local's perspective, including a chance to find out about the sociological and political current issues important to Canadians. This tour offered a great patina to the stunning visuals here. Matthew even volunteered to carry some purchases back to our hotel after the tour, as we wanted to spend more time in Gastown.

Found these folks with an on-line search. My wife and I, and our best friends, wanted a private tour of Vancouver on a Sunday morning before boarding our ship for an Alaskan cruise-and-land vacation with Holland America. Contacted Alfred and he got right back to me with answers to all my questions and several suggestions. Our tour guide was Matthew and he did an excellent job of giving us a great tour which included some impromptu visits to locations where my wife, a consummate bird watcher, could indulge her passion. We hit the highlights, had some great food, and were deposited at the ship dock after the "herd" had processed, so we breezed right through as Matt had said we would. What a great 5 hours, and a great way to start our vacation. Kudos to Alfred and Matt. I highly recommend this company for a great tour of Vancouver.

Our group had a wonderful private tour with Matt. Matt was very attentive during our tour and gave us a splendid day. We went everywhere, we sampled food, went in the gondola, across suspension bridges. We feel we really know Vancouver now. Matt is very easy to talk to and he really loves what he does and he has a lot of knowledge. He took photos and emailed them to us. There was nothing more he could have done to provide a perfect experience. Highly recommended!
