We had a cycling tour of about a week along the coast of Vancouver Island with a family of four, including two kids. We had a self guided tour: you do not need a guide for directions, Island Joy Rides provides a map and good instructions and Vancouver Island is pretty easy cycling.
Island Joy Rides has done a great job. The best thing about them is that their friendly service does not stop after handing over the bikes: they continously try to make your experience even better. They are very good at organizing a custom made tour which suits your requirements. Communication is relaxed, friendly and to the point.
For us they arranged two trailers (for the kids), replaced our bikes after the first day with almost brand new Giant-bikes (we needed larger bikes), prepared a custommade tour which included a whalewatching tour and gave us extra routeoptions. They also really try to find the best routes and spots you can find on Vancouver Island,
It only was a slight disappointment that we sometimes had to cycle along quite busy roads.
