Meet the Family

We are passionate, we are experienced, and we are leaders in operating tours throughout Western Canada and the Pacific Northwest. Meet the managing team that makes your adventures come true!

Clint Drdul

Co-Founder and Director of Sales & Marketing

Hi there! Along with my sister-in-law Stacey, I’m one of the founders of Discover Canada Tours. I oversee the sales and marketing teams, and I’m also in charge of keeping our coach fleet ready to roll. I started as one of the only tour guides for all the trips in the early days, and I still jump in when needed from time to time! I have a passion for showing off the beautiful province where I was born and raised. Outside of the office, you will find me chasing my 9-year-old twins down a ski slope, going to a hockey game or camping at Cultus Lake and hanging out by the water. Living the Adventure is both mine and this company’s motto, and I invite you to do so in REVELSTOKE.

Stacey Thorson

Co-Founder and Director of Operations

Hello! I’m Stacey, and I founded Discover Canada Tours along with Clint to follow in my parent's footsteps. I oversee the operations, product development and finances of DCT and the rest of our brands. Before founding the company in 2005, I lived and worked in the Middle East and have travelled extensively throughout Canada and internationally. To me, travelling is not only a passion but a way of life. I love to explore new destinations, especially throughout Western Canada, and share my best experiences by creating exceptional tour packages for DCT. I’m also the proud mother of two active young daughters who keep me busy outside work; I love taking my family to discover new places and activities! My favourite one is skiing, which is why I invite you to Live the Adventure in SUN PEAKS SKI RESORT.

Jennifer Fiddis

Manager, Commercial & Product Development

Hi! I started in the tourism industry working in a Vancouver hotel as a practicum, back when guests made their reservations by snail mail! I’ve come a long way to get to my current role, managing the product team & suppliers for Discover Canada Tours and our brands. I measure the products included in our tours and travel with my family to ensure the best value & quality. If you can’t find me at my desk in the office, I’m usually somewhere in Canada looking for amazing destinations to send our clients to, like Churchill, Manitoba or Dawson City in The Yukon. My favourite places to travel in the world happen to be in my own backyard, like Tofino, and I have a new love for Northern BC after travelling through the INSIDE PASSAGE, where I invite you to Live the Adventure!

Graham Wood

Operations Manager

Cheers! I’m in charge of the day-to-day operations at Discover Canada Tours. I have worked in the adventure and sightseeing tourism fields for many years, from my early safari, rafting and 4×4 guiding days in Southern Africa, to now enjoying the cooler climate of Western Canada. For me, adventure, sports and travel are a lifestyle. When I’m not working, you’ll find me travelling around the world, watching or participating in major sports events, or immersing myself in the local culture. In my daily life, you’ll see me swimming, biking or running around beautiful BC. I’m at my happiest when sipping on some wine while tanning a chop on the Braai/BBQ (whatever that means?) or hanging out at an ocean-facing cabin. I encourage you to Live the Adventure on the ROCKIES TASTE OF THE WILD TOUR.

Rosario Soliva

Accounting Manager

Hi everyone! I manage and oversee the company’s accounting department. I have over20 years of accounting experience in the Philippines and Canada. Before moving to Canada, I worked in an auditing company, manufacturing, insurance brokerage and life insurance company.. When I’m not balancing assets and liabilities, I’m often at home spending time with my family, cooking, reading books, watching shows or gardening. I can’t get enough of the beauty of Vancouver (when it's not raining!), so during the summer, I search for “easy” hikes and drag my family with me, bribing them with pizza or sushi afterwards. I had the chance to visit Banff and Jasper in Alberta, and they are definitely one of the most scenic places in Canada. II invite you to Live the Adventure with Discover Canada Tours in the ROCKIES!

Bryson Dunn

Senior Sales Manager

“Hey! What are we going to do today? LIVE THE ADVENTURE!” - This is how I start my days in the office as the manager of the sales and practicum team, who are proud to be called The Green Team. I started guiding, and my passion for travel is what continually shapes my career. When I’m not working, I like to play hard; I enjoy dirt biking, motorcycling and snowmobiling. I’m lucky to have an awesome wife that lets me do these things, even though we have a baby daughter at home! I also play guitar and drums and love hanging out with good friends, but I always put family first. I’m known to be very charming and persuasive, so be careful, or you might find yourself on one of my crazy adventures. Let’s go Live the Adventure in TOFINO!
