Fraser Valley Wine Tour & Great Squamish Day Trip
My wife and I cannot say enough positive things about Mike Lawrence as a guide. We signed up first for a Fraser Valley wine tour. Everything was beyond first class. We were picked up exactly on time at our downtown hotel in a very comfortable modern van. As it turned out, we were the only two people on the tour that day. After a very informative ride to the Fraser Valley with such an easy going, warm individual was a perfect introduction. Mike knew people at each one of the five wineries we visited, and in each case we were made to feel at home. I actually am somewhat of a professional, writing scholarly articles and books about wine history as well as teaching wine courses at the University level and to community groups. As a result, we have done wine visits literally all over the world. Mike’s tour of these BC wineries certainly ranks with the best in places like Bordeaux, South Africa, Argentina and Australia. The wines were overall excellent, and in some cases exceptional. We particularly enjoyed our visit to Blackwood Lane where we had a terrific conversation with the Peruvian owner whose wines were as engaging as he was. In addition, our lunch at a 6th winery was excellent and affordable. We enjoyed our experience so much with Mike that it occurred to us to ask him to plan another tour with our children and grandchildren who were arriving to Vancouver the next day. He came up with a number of suggestions and ended up proposing a tour that would engage the grandchildren’s (6-12 years old) varied interests; the tour included going into a mine, climbing up to a gorgeous waterfall, riding a gondola up a mountain and taking a great hike, seeing a salmon hatchery and ending up a long day tasting many of the 230 ice creams at his favorite ice-cream store. Mike made our and their Vancouver experience truly extraordinary.

Grand City Tour of Vancouver
Small group tour in a nice Mercedes van! Michael has lived in Vancouver for years and gives an extensive city tour complete with history and lots of commentary. We walked Granville Island at lunch time and bought lunch from one of the vendors. Michael covers many miles and you will come away with a new appreciation for the city of Vancouver!

Grand City Tour of Vancouver
Wish I could rate it 10 stars!
Ours was the 5-hour tour of Vancouver, including Stanley Park. Michael is the perfect tour guide with vast knowledge of the city, restaurants, and history of the region. Our tour, on July 1, Canada's 150th celebration, gave him quite the challenge because of closed streets and vast numbers of bicyclists and pedestrians. He deftly maneuvered the city streets and we saw everything, and more. If you can ignore his puns () you'll love this guy!

Excellent Tour and Superior Customer Service
Met Michael for a day tour of beautiful Vancouver. He was able to pick up our group of 4 at the cruise port, dropped our bags at the hotel before beginning our tour and dropped us off at our downtown hotel at the end of the tour. Michael was extremely personable, accommodating, timely and knowledgeable about Vancouver, its history, nature/plants and surroundings. The 11 passenger van was a new Mercedes, very comfortable and immaculate. Would highly recommend Lawrence Tours for your Vancouver tour needs. A++++

Grand City Tour of Vancouver
My daughter and I took this tour after our Alaskan cruise. Our flights home were not until after 6 pm and this was the perfect amount of time (5 hrs). The small bus was very comfortable and clean and we were able to see all the sites mentioned as well as having time for lunch at Granville Island Public Market. Because there was just the two of us on this tour and we had time, he took us to a couple of extra places we asked to go to. It was a great educational and enjoyable trip and I would recommend it to anyone!

Fraser Valley Wine Tour
We were lucky to have a small group and Michael was able to get us to 5 wineries and a Bacchus Bistro lunch at Chaberton estate. We bought several bottles of wine and had no problem packing the bottles with our luggage and bringing the wine through customs into the US. Michael was very knowledgeable of the Fraser Valley area and provided detailed information as to each of the wineries.

  1. What a great tour! I went on the Fraser Valley Wine tour and Michael was an amazing guide! He is so knowledgeable and when above and beyond to ensure I had a memorable experience. The icing on the cake was that he helped me package wine to ship back to the states. Again, a great tour if you want to explore some of the delicious B.C wines. Thank you again Michael!

  2. We booked two tours with Michael: Grand City Tour and the Squamish Day Trip. Michael is very personable, knowledgeable and accommodating. We learned a lot about Vancouver and surrounding areas while riding in comfort. I would definitely recommend Lawrence Tours. (Five out of five stars!)
