We were lucky enough to be the only two people on this tour, which allowed us to get to know Alfonso just a little bit more than we likely would have had the group been larger. It was a true pleasure to hear him share his history, knowledge, and thoughts during our tour. We very much enjoyed the time we spent, and the conversation, but it felt like we barely scratched the surface on a deep and complex history of this area and the local First Nations People. Highly recommended.

We really enjoyed the tour with our knowledgeable guide Candace. She explained different plants and trees to us, gave us an overview about indigenous peoples lives here in Canada and answered all of our questions. We are very happy that we had her as our guide and would have liked to keep on talking to her for many more hours. Thank you again Candace!

The walking tour with Candace was incredibly eye-opening. I have visited Vancouver many times and been to Stanley Park every time I was in the city. I thought I had seen it all - but how wrong I was. Walking through the forest with Candace showed me look at the trees, plants, and wildlife with new eyes. Candace was a wealth of knowledge, happy to answer all my questions about the plant life in the pacific northwest but also about indigenous cultures across all of Canada. I would heartily recommend this tour to anyone looking to have a new point of view in Vancouver.

I was in Vancouver for the weekend and decided to take a tour around Stanley park since many people told me the park was a must go. My tour guide Candace was amazing explaining the history of the area and sharing parts of the culture. My favorite part was definitely the totems and the story of the giant woman. Definitely recommend it if you want more than just a walk in the park.

Thoroughly enjoyed Wes's extremely thoughtful and experiential Walk Through Stanley Park. Our student enjoyed the experience and we will be back.

We had a great time on a rainy day in November with the Talaysay team. The guides were knowledgeable and created a great experience for us to learn about Indigenous Perspectives in our area. They were able to answer all of our questions and had many engaging and powerful stories to share. Thank you Talaysay Tours!

Talaysay Tours developed a customized tour for teachers at my school so we could better get to know the forest in our area. The organization was excellent. We enjoyed a delicious lunch and the tour itself was both beautiful and inspiring. The storytelling was informative, captivating and filled with gentle humour.
The information offered brought the forest alive in my heart and the activities inspired us to truly "love the land".
Thank you Candace and Richard

We took a group of approx. 50 staff for a team-building and learning experience with Talaysay Tours to learn about local indigenous culture. It was phenomenal! The tour guides were excellent, and helped craft a morning that really met the needs of our staff. Highly recommend, and very much appreciate the work they're doing!

This past Thursday, my mom and I had the chance to participate in the Talking Trees tour. Candace and Sarah showed us the parts of the forest that were important to their families in history. It was interesting, peaceful, and so enjoyable. I would absolutely recommend Talasay!!!

Our tour was on October 14, 2018. We learned some history of the Salish peoples, as well as some story telling. Candace explained how the various plants and trees were used, and how they supported indigenous communities. Halfway through the tour we were given some home made tea which included berries, licorice, and stinging nettle, which was very yummy.
