     We Are About People

Established in 2007, the central focus is giving the people what they want. Our team of guides, drivers and agents shine through interaction on our small group tours to Pacific Northwest destinations. We partner with a network of local proprietors and producers who are passionate about their crafts, farms and local activities. Our Mission is to provide bucket list itineraries, social environments and a public vehicle for back yard discoveries.

   We Are About Community

Our team of 8 staff operate day tours through 37 Metro Vancouver Community Centres and partner with community organizations such as Tourism Langley, Tourism Abbotsford and Destination BC. Founder / Owner Troy Opper graduated from BCIT class of 2000 Business/Marketing, is on the Board of Directors for the Oakridge Seniors Society and was inducted into the Delta Sports Hall of Fame in 2015.
