Our Guests Talk
Here is what people are saying about Your KW Host tour services.
"I have been wanting to see the Mennonites for the longest time ever and I was so pleased to have Angela as a guide to make this possible. I learned more about their way of life from her than from from books. I was totally fascinated to walk into their General Store and see their wardrobes for sale ie: their bonnets, boots and hats, etc. They are very much into community living and I like the fact that they live a simpler and healthier life than we do. We as a modern society have a lot to learn from them. Thank you Angela!"
"Great service! In a very short timeframe, a tour was organized and a lot of value provided to my out-of-country guests, including connections that will assist them in their plans for expanding their business in Waterloo. They absolutely loved it!
"Angela was a pleasure to spend the day with. Along with a friendly and welcoming demeanor, she is incredibly knowledgeable about the KW area and was willing to go off the beaten path to show me areas that might suit my family's needs. Her hospitality made me feel right at home. Thank you for the tour!"
"Angela, thank you for the great tour of the Kitchener/Waterloo area. Moving to a new area can be stressful, but you were able to make our first few days in KW an excellent experience! Everything from discovering new communities to wonderful restaurants, we enjoyed ourselves so much! You were a fountain of knowledge in terms of history, areas, and amenities. We also appreciated your resourcefulness in getting us connected to resources and networks in the community, specifically as a mother transitioning teenage kids Angela was able to connect us with key people at specific schools and sports teams that was immensely helpful! Lunch with a few members of the local community was such a personal touch and made us feel connected to this new community. We would highly recommend Angela!"
"Angela is a great resource to tap in to if you're an employer looking to showcase the KW Region to a candidate, or if you're an individual considering relocating here. Having lived and worked here her whole life, Angela has a wealth of knowledge to share, on everything from what neighbourhood to settle in, schools and sports clubs for kids, restaurants and entertainment, and more. KW is an amazing place to live, work and play, and it's very valuable to have a resource like Angela to show off the unique elements to encourage people to settle here."
"Angela took our family of three (including a toddler) on a tour of Kitchener Waterloo and shared her vast knowledge of and passion for the area. I was impressed immediately by how Angela had planned ahead specifically for us, our bag of 'goodies' and information included toys for our daughter. This kept her entertained. Our time with Angela was interesting and very tailored to us and the group. Angela is friendly and professional, excellent with children and passionate about what she does. She certainly made the area an exciting prospect as a new home and made us all feel as though we would be extremely welcome."
"First, thank you so much for your positive and professional personality, great knowledge of the local communities, showing me the beautiful neighborhoods, the incredible Rim Park athletic center (let's play Pickle ball!), the Canadian Clay and Glass Gallery to aid my learning about the area. I was impressed to see the Accelerator Centre and having senior staff there to give us a brief tour.
“Angela is very knowledgeable about the Kitchener Waterloo area. Anyone new to the area will learn a lot in a single morning tour with her, rather than spending days surfing the Internet. I highly recommended Angela's tours for newcomers to K-W .”
“Angela is an excellent tour guide. Before the tour she asked for what my interests are. She then tailored the tour to my interests, answering questions as we went along and sharing the history of the place. It helps that she’s been in the area for a while. I could see that she takes great pride in her community. I enjoyed her interaction with the locals as it helped me see that the K-W area is a friendly place. I would recommend Angela to anyone who needs a personal introduction to the Kitchener-Waterloo area.”
“I trust Angela to provide a personalized tour for my candidates. She helps with our recruiting efforts by customizing her tour to provide answers to what is most important to our candidates lifestyle. Whether that is gaining a sense of communities, housing schools, or arts and culture, Angela helps. By connecting a recent candidate with a rental home she expedited the relocation process for us! This kind of help is a big comfort for a family coming from another country.”
“Angela is very knowledgeable on the KW area, and we learned so much more in a single morning with her than from days on the Internet. Highly recommended for newcomers to the area.
“Just wanted to thank you for the very informative and pleasant afternoon spent touring your area. The goody bag was especially thoughtful; my favorite items were the artist calendar and blueberry jam. The pamphlets and historical information were quite helpful for newcomers to the area.
“Thank you very much for a really well rounded tour! It really opened up our minds with regards to this region. There is a lot of exciting stuff happening and it was great to witness it first hand. All of the resources were very engaging and it was very nice of them to take the time to meet with our group. Very well done!”
