Candace and her team guided our corporate group near Crescent Beach.
We learned about Coast Salish history on a beautiful kayak trip. The kayaks were in excellent condition, excellent guides and we had a nice snack during our break. The equipment was ready for us when we arrived and we finished on time.
Everyone had an amazing experience and I would highly recommend going with Talaysay Tours.

Our group all agreed that this was one of the best tours that we have taken in Vancouver. To listen to the rich history of the Indigenous culture throughout Stanley Park and Candace our Tour Leader spoke with passion and kept our group very engaged throughout the tour. I would highly recommend going on this tour and you get to enjoy a glass of Authentic Indigenous Tea it was so refreshing!!

I participated in the Spoken Treasures tour of Stanley Park, lead by Candace and I learned so much about local First Nations culture and history. Candace is a very engaging presenter and I would highly recommend this tour to anyone who wants a unique perspective on indigenous history.

An easy amble with occasional stops for our guides to drum, chant and point out different plants and how the First Nations used them. Be prepared to leap aside for speeding cyclists.
I appreciated the guides sharing a bit about their personal backgrounds, particularly why and how they are trying to reclaim their native heritage. The tour is one initiative in that process, so visitors are also engaged in it in a small way.

We took the Talking Trees tour at the summit of the Sea to Sky Gondola! What an excellent tour by our guides Sito and Tyrone. They shared their knowledge about their culture as well as the challenges the Indigenous people have to face. Sito was drumming and singing for us and believe it or not the clouds disappeared. We could see "the Chief" and heard a wonderful story about it. Tyrone had brought Labrador tea which was delicious. We learned so much and truly enjoyed all the knowledge that was shared with us. Can only highly recommend it!
