With its ten year anniversary just ten days away, Vancouver-based tour company ToursByLocals is celebrating its one millionth traveller mark.
The lucky guests to flip the counter over were Cathie and Matt Odom of Port St. John, Florida who took a tour of San Francisco with ToursByLocals tour guide Caesar Cypriano yesterday afternoon (Oct 14).
The Odoms were surprised onsite with a $1,000 gift certificate to be used on future travels around the world.
What began as a start-up with an office on top of a Greek restaurant, the company now has 100 employees in offices in Vancouver, Buenos Aires, Glasgow and Kuala Lumpur.
