Matt Oliver – Chief Tour Guide and Owner of Bike Tours Victoria
I’m a small town boy from rural Ontario who fell in love with the West Coast over 10 years ago, I returned to bike riding which was a childhood passion of mine. That led to introducing international and local visitors to experiences that became much-loved stories shared on facebook.
As it turns out, I got pretty good at touring people around by bike because I was nominated for a Vancouver Tourism Award in 2014.
Today as a unique and boutique bike tour business owner and operator, I collaborate and partner with Victoria’s sweetest people whose work is their art. I create and guide genteel adventures by bike. My favorite thing to do is surprise guests with something a little unexpected that they wouldn’t have found or thought of on their own.
I find the city’s hidden gems and combine them with the sights you simply can’t miss. My goal is to deliver the quintessential West Coast experience whether you are visiting for a day or want to start a longer stay by making yourself completely at home with me as your guide.
I offer the tours I do because I want to live in a world where “having fun” is a priority on people’s to-do lists. The best ever can be today! I feel genuinely sad when locals or visitors from abroad miss out on having intentional fun because they signed up for an activity which found them walking around aimlessly being passively informed with facts that don’t hold meaning.
In contrast, at the end of a bike tour, guests have shared that the fun lingered because the experience was so interactive and engaging. They were living in the moment while making memories they know they’ll cherish. A bike tour is the kind of thing you do that changes the way you navigate your future days for the better.
I’m really looking forward to meeting you and invite you to reserve your tour today. Please email me with any questions so that I can help you create your own unique fun!
