Who is Detours?

Detours specializes in providing guided, small-group tours that showcase the unique culture, history, and landscapes of beautiful British Columbia, Canada.

We’re in Love with British Columbia!

It’s not just the unparalleled beauty of its oceans, mountains, ranch lands, lakes, and deserts that make us love our province; it’s the individual stories, past and present, which make up the big picture of each place that we visit. Our true passion lays in taking the detours and discovering the wealth of cultural, geological, and historical gems that may get by-passed for the more oft-visited traveller itineraries.

We’re History & Geography Buffs

But don’t let that scare you! We equally love visiting BC’s best wineries and spontaneous stops at roadside fruit and ice cream stands.

We delight in mixing entertainment, soft-adventure exploration, and education and are insatiably curious. It is our goal to pass that delight along to you, our valued guest.

Each guide brings a breadth of experience to heighten yours.

We Believe in Keeping Things Personal

We firmly believe that small group tours are the best way to experience all our province has to offer. We also understand that group dynamics play a big part in the enjoyment of a tour.

As such, we always take into account the varied interests of each party when planning a tour, whether that is a family, a group of friends, or a combination of different small groups.

Travel in Comfort

Guests of Detours travel in the comfort of a clean, comfortable, 14 passenger, air conditioned Ford Transit. Each tour leader is Class 4 licensed to drive our safety-inspected commercial vehicle.

In addition to being spacious for our guests, we also have plenty of room to pack your belongings for the tour.
