NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC’s Travelers Magazine writer David Lansing aptly calls Manfred, “Jingles the Magician, a guide who could turn rain into sunshine” and who “waxes poetic about the sea, river, forest, and all creatures large and small that live in this fairyland.”


THE WASHINGTON POST Travel Supplement says: “Rockwood Adventures, a boutique tour excursion guide company, … offers guided walks through Chinatown and other sights in and around the city… the guide’s knowledge of the area and easy manner make the tours highly recommendable.”


The LOS ANGELES TIMES Travel Supplement quoted “A 20-minutes walk will take you from city streets into a rainforest with 1,000 year old trees. Trails weave through an emerald forest of hemlock, red cedar and Douglas fir, over a forest floor of moss, ferns and flowering plants.”


“Rain, rain, come and stay” writes the GLOBE & MAIL, for without the rain there would be no urban rainforest – “absolute total wilderness” that can be found just 10 minutes from downtown Vancouver” points out Rockwood Adventures guide. “This is where you can stay dry, because the towering cedar, fir and hemlock – some reaching 100 metres or 382 feet – form a canopy that keeps the hardest rain at bay.”


“Talk about magic” says SUNSET magazine describing the “gourmet experience” offered by Rockwood Adventures that “leads island and glacier tours that include a gourmet picnic, with dishes like roasted herb chicken served on china with wine in crystal.”


Air Canada’s enroute magazine listed Rockwood Adventure’s Lighthouse Park Old Growth Rainforest Adventure as a MUST DO. “Picnic is included” on this four to six-hour excursion under “giant towering cedars, firs and hemlocks”
