About
This is "a champagne and chocolate kind of tour", a leisurely, carefully curated, art journey into the personal studios of some of Canada's most celebrated artists. We know it can be difficult to find the right kind of tour. Our tours are known for their emotional impact and cultural embodiment. Let us show you the Coast! Skip the lines and costly ferry reservations by starting this relaxing tour off with a mid-morning pick-up from the Langdale Ferry terminal near Gibsons. Enjoy a wonderfully picturesque 37 minute ferry to the Coast where you will board your luxurious and spacious tour van and make way to your first artist studio. This exclusive tour visits three studio/galleries and focuses on getting you behind the scenes directly with the artists themselves to learn about their inspirations and artistic processes. This relaxing and highly curated 7-hour tour includes a delicious one-hour lunch, snacks and beverages throughout.

An amazing and fascinating experience
Nov. 2021
This tour was a birthday gift for my mother. We could not have been more thrilled with the care and attention that was taken by Douglas to make this as curated an experience as possible.

His deep knowledge of the area’s history and of the artisans made this absolutely fascinating and enjoyable. He recommended a beautiful place to stay that was absolutely perfect and made our short trip to the Sunshine Coast even more magical.
This is now a “must do” for anyone I know visiting the beautiful Sunshine Coast!

One of a kind experience!
Nov. 2021
Doug was an excellent host for our company's retreat. He was extremely knowledgeable about the Sunshine Coast area, offering fun tidbits and historical facts throughout our drive, and set up an incredible workshop with a local artist to create a metal mandala. It was truly a one of a kind experience!

Great way to learn the Coast with the Most
Nov. 2021
12/10 Would recommend to anyone and everyone. It's a really great way to experience a 'local perspective' on the sunshine coast. I'd been going to the Sunshine Coast for over 10 years, and I learned more in one day then in all those years combined.

Well worth it!

Douglas' love for art, tea, and the coast made this experience a very enriching one (not to mention It was custom made to fit the group's needs). I recommend his guidance strongly. I am eager to see what his brewery tour is all about!

One-of-a-kind experience
Nov. 2021
Douglas created an incredibly thoughtful, impactful custom experience for our team retreat. We left with some great memories, tangible takeaways, and a literal art piece for our team. He was also well-spoken about the Indigenous history of the land which was a really nice bonus to the experience. I would recommend Sunshine Coast Art Tours for anyone looking for a memorable, unique Sunshine Coast experience.

Fabulous Experience on a cool Fall day!
Nov. 2021
The Art Tour on Saturday exceeded our expectations in every way. We were picked up at home and chauffeured around in a comfortable van to 3 different artist studios. Our eyes were opened to the fantastic diversity of visual artists on the Sunshine Coast. Douglas, our engaging and knowledgeable guide, attended to our every need and kept the day on track without feeling rushed. He provided us with a delicious charcuterie lunch which we enjoyed with Motoko in her lovely studio. The day ended at Brickers Cider, where we had a chance to relax, sample some cider, and chat with the other couples, before being dropped off at home. Highly recommend for tourists and locals alike, whether or not you are new to the art scene!

Absolutely Awesome
Nov. 2021
Amazing! Loved being a tourist in our town and getting to be passenger for a change. Super fun, met some great people, felt totally safe as all had to show double vax passports, saw very inspiring artist and enjoyed some delicious food. Douglas was so great at checking in to make sure everyone was good, if we needed snacks, drinks, giving us great 10min warnings for when we had to start wrapping up for the next adventure. I can't say enough good things. Highly recommend for locals, locals with family/friends coming to visit, and tourists- I hope to do it again!

Flights to Flights - Beyond Fun!
Oct. 2021
What a perfect day! None in our group of four had spent any time on the Sunshine Coast. We booked a "Flights to Flights" tour which included a visit and tastings at 3 distilleries/breweries, lunch *AND* a flight tour in a seaplane! Beyond fun!

If the activities weren't enough in and of themselves, everyone Douglas introduced us to at our stops was wonderful to chat and welcoming.

From the start of planning the tour, Douglas himself is so knowledgeable, friendly and accommodating. He is a wonderful guide. We enthusiastically recommend booking with him and Sunshine Coast Art Tours! You won't regret it!
