We spent the day with Gy and had a fantastic time. The day flew by as Gy shared his knowledge of the park and showed us many spectacular spots. It was a wonderful experience customized to what we wanted to see most. We highly recommend this guided tour. Wells Grey is a truly special place not to be missed.

Our family of 2 adults and 2 teenage children visited Clearwater en route to Whistler/Vancouver earlier this month and had arranged a half day morning hike prior to departing for BC with Gy. We all enjoyed ourselves very much and it has stimulated our interest in doing more hiking on our return home. Gy was an informative guide with lots of knowledge of the flora and fauna of the park. What is unusual with Discover Wells Gray is Gy's ability to provide an individual approach to visitors and to tailor the experience to their needs. Unlike others providing reviews we did not see a bear but after our morning we will know what to do if we come across one!

A tip, if ever in Clearwater you must also stop by the Strawberry Moose Snackery for its excellent coffee and cakes.

We took this tour on our first full day in Wells Gray.
Gy is very knowledgeable about the plants and the birds, butterflies and the rest of the wildlife.
He picked us up at our lodge and drove up to the parking lot on a gravel road which is not allowed by most rental car companies. The hike up to the flower meadows on Trophy mountain was very interpretive and we had such lovely weather with clear sky that we could even see the coastal mountains. A cool breeze was very welcome and being at a higher altitude was a good choice as it was 30° down in Clearwater.
We would recommend this hike to anyone as Gy not only very interpretive on fauna and flora but also explains a lot about the area, native people and other interesting sites.
Also a great thanks for the tasty sandwiches, fruit salad and chocolate cake his wife made for us.
Would certainly do it again when we return to this part of British Columbia

We did the 'half day vehicle assisted hike', andbit was a highlight of our trip. Gy has an amazing knowledge of the area and the plants and animals in ot, and seemingly infinite patience ( he fielded nearly non stop questions from our kids forth whole six hours) and tailored the trip to suit the weather, our interests and the volume of other people on the park. The truck for the tour was comfortable, the picnic lunch lovely. A great tour, do it.
