We Are About People 

Established in 2007, 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 9 staff operate day tours through 41 Metro Vancouver Community Centers and partner with community organizations including such as Tourism Langley, Tourism Abbotsford, Destination BC and the BC Retired Teachers Association. A donation is made to the RR Smith Foundation when BC Retired Teachers travel with Enjoy The Journey.

We Are About Tours 

Join 20 unique day tours a month departing from community centers throughout Metro Vancouver and our public tours departing from Surrey, Burnaby and Vancouver. Welcome aboard our 24 seat tour buses featuring low steps, great sight lines, seat belts and rear luggage for multi day tours. Virtually visit Vancouver on a livestream tour of the city's unparalleled scenery, iconic landmarks and learn about our people and environmental culture.
