HOW did we get here?
Our story is a family story… Bear with us as we travel back to the 90s!
Doug and Dianne Revell are the proud owners of the UNIGLOBE Specialty Travel franchise since 1995, and one of their daughters, Kelly, is the General Manager. Their other daughter, Stacey Thorson, and Clint Drdul, Kelly’s husband, founded Discover Canada Tours under the UNIGLOBE brand in 2005.
Driven by their shared passion for adventure, exploration and tourism, Stacey and Clint guided the very first Discover Canada Tour to the Canadian Rocky Mountains in March of 2005. Since then, we have hosted over 450,000 travellers across Western Canada and have become Western Canada’s tour specialist of choice.
Discover Canada Tours has grown significantly over the years and we now cater to various types of travel styles, ranging from experienced adventurers, solo travellers, families, young adults and school students. We do so under five distinctive brands; Discover Canada Tours, West Trek Tours, Destination Snow, Discover Canada Student Adventures, and the new Extraordinary Experiences Collection.
WHERE do we go?
Departing from Vancouver, our most popular destination is the majestic Canadian Rocky Mountains, but our travellers also love to explore The Yukon, Alberta and other cities in British Columbia, such as Whistler, Tofino and Victoria. Others prefer to go on a snow adventure or even cross the border to Seattle in the USA!
We curate our adventures and ensure our tours are not only diverse and rich in experiences but also educational and fun. We operate a wide range of activities for travellers of various budgets, fitness levels and interests. Discover Canada Tours also operates custom-made tour itineraries that are suitable for smaller groups.

A ‘Work hard, Play Hard’ attitude to all life’s adventures.
What does it mean to Live the Adventure? Adventure can be defined in many ways. For some, adventure can be extreme experiences like bungee jumping or whitewater rafting, for others, it can merely be heading into uncharted territories, trying something new, or exploring unfamiliar local and international destinations.
At Discover Canada Tours, we believe that adventure is whatever you make it be. We make sure that every single tour and experience that you have with us is an adventure and something that you’ll take home with you and never forget. We are passionate about travel and strive to empower international adventurers to explore the best of what Canada has to offer.
Working as a collaborative team allows us to achieve the impossible. We are a team of many talents. Not one person in the company performs only one task. We have high standards and set ambitious goals to achieve them as a team.
We are accountable, dependable and realize our success is a direct result of our actions. This advantage makes us a stronger organization. When our goals are achieved, we celebrate together!
We strive to give our adventurers ‘the time of their lives’. Everyone in our organization is committed to this belief and will not hesitate to go above and beyond to make sure each guest is having a unique and unforgettable experience on our tours and trips. We operate on integrity and care about the impact we have on our communities and each other. We stick to our values, no matter the cost. Our adventurers come first, always!
We truly believe in the importance of having a well-balanced and healthy life and we will do anything we can to ensure that our employees are able to take advantage of this. A positive image and fun loving attitude helps us be more productive and less stressed.
As we have mentioned, Life’s an Adventure and it’s about having a fun time living it!

We want to be showing off what we love about Canada for generations to come, that’s why we’re committed to exploring responsibly within our ecosystems and our communities.
Excellent tour. Accommodations, meals, vehicle met and many times exceeded expectations. Each day offered new adventures, sites, options. Itinerary was perfect with driver/guide Kara being professional, cheerful, thoughtful and adaptable. I highly recommend Discover Canada and wish they did tours in the east as well. Great value for money. The support from Jennifer at head office to reconfigure end of trip helpful as well. Thanks for memorable holiday in the west.
My mom and I, along with her friends did the full day sightseeing tour to Vancouver island with a visit to the Butchart Gardens. We had an absolutely fantastic experience and I would highly recommend if you want to see the island and gardens as the travel is all planned out and you get to sit back and enjoy everything!
Discover Canada also provides very good pricing for everything you get and our tour guide Joe was fantastic and very kind! He was very knowledgeable and made everyone feel comfortable and answered random questions everyone had throughout the day.
Positive: Professionalism, Quality, Value
I took the Whistler sightseeing tour with Joe as our guide, it was really great! Joe was very friendly and helpful, informative and knowledgeable about BC and its history; he told us interesting tidbits and stories about the province and Whistler/Blackcomb. I enjoyed being able to do my own thing on the tour, Whistler was beautiful! Thanks again to Joe and Discover Canada Tours!
