Thank you for your feedback. I truly enjoyed my day spent with you and the group at the Cheakamus Centre up in Squamish last week.
I got this tour for my husband for his birthday - he loves the outdoors and as settlers on this land, we always want to learn more about its history and the stories that are attached to different areas so that we can have a deeper understanding about the area and Coast Salish peoples' life on the land. Wes, our guide, is a wonderful and patient teacher, telling us stories and teachings of the land, plants/trees and ways of life that passed through the areas we walked. We were very grateful for the experience and for the time we spent with Wes. Candace also ensured the day was really well organized and was very thoughtful in planning the day. Thank you!
Just wanted to send a note to thank you for your feedback and review on Trip Advisor.
Wishing both you and your husband a great summer.
Best wishes, Candace, Wes and the Talaysay Team
I was in Vancouver for 2 days and my friend found this tour group and I am so happy she did!! Candace made the tour, both with her informative and personal stories, and with her incredibly gracious manner. I don't know much about the history of the native people of that region but Candace made me so interested to learn more. This was so much more than just a tour and I would recommend it highly to anyone visiting the area.
Carole and Steph,
I truly enjoyed meeting you both and thank you so much for the feedback; it truly means a lot. Thank you for all of the great questions too. Your interest in Indigenous culture and the history of these region makes it so great to be a guide. As a tour guide, I know I only spend a moment in our lives with you during these tours but even those moments stand out for me and it is a special connection. I wish you both the very best and hope to one day see you again.
Wes was an inspirational guide, with no bitterness. He sang and told stories. We felt his passion for a lost way of life and his determination to keep his culture alive. An unmissable experience.
Thank you so much for sharing your experience on our Talking Trees Tour. We will inform Wes that your enjoyed his guided tour in Stanley Park
Thank you for a wonderful and informative walking tour. Wes was a brilliant guide and he really brought the first nations people and their stories alive for us. It was great to hear him speaking his language and singing; 21st century Vancouver melted away and we were taken back in time. We could have spent the whole day listening to him and learning about the coast Salish peoples. A memorable afternoon and thoroughly recommended if you want to learn about the culture and traditions of the first nation peoples of Vancouver.
Thank you so much for your feedback. Wes is a dear friend and a colleague who does incredible cultural work for our company and communities.
We thoughly enjoyed a 3.5 hour kayak journey from Eagle Harbour to Ambleside and back. Our guide, Ecko's songs and passion for the sea and land were inspirational. We were encouraged to appreciate the first nation's experience and unity with nature. We would highly recommend a Talaysay tour.
