About Us

He who does not travel does not know the value of men

Moorish proverb

We opened our doors in 2008. From the beginning we believed that it was the client’s trip and that our purpose was to help them achieve their dreams.


We come naturally to our business model. Karen has operated her own successful Family Daycare out of our home for the past 30 years. Her philosophy was guided self-directed play and lends itself very well to our philosophy of travel. Chris worked at a senior management level in the service industry for 30 years and approached operations from a human relations perspective. His experience as a District Manager for Starbucks, developed his human relations skills; connecting, communicating, and execution.

Walden Tours is a full service travel agency, licensed to operate from the home, by Consumer Protection BC. Our license number is 49093. We are bonded.

Our host agency is Travel Professionals International (TPI), located in Winnipeg. It recently celebrated its 20th anniversary. Despite the association with TPI, Walden Tours operates as a separate business.

We are IATA appointed.

We are Virtuoso Agents, which allows us to add value to your trip.

And we have traveled extensively, continue to travel, and chronicle our experiences on Our Blog.


Thoughtful and constructive assistance. I was thoroughly impressed and will likely deal with Chris in the near future.
