Tour Guiding Services

Welcome to Ria’s Special Tour Guiding Service Page.



Thank you for your interest. My name is Ria and I’ve started “CST” (Canada Special Tours Inc.) last October, 2017. CST is a Specialized Tour Guiding & Tour Management Company that provides Specialized Tour Guiding Services and Tour Development Services throughout Western Canada in the following three languages: English, Dutch and German.

My Vision is to let travelers explore & experience the beautiful Nature, History, and Culture of Canada, especially with the help and support of our respected Indigenous Tourism Boards and People, our First Nations or Natives as we’d like to call them over here, because their Canadian ancient history goes back more than 15.000 years!

My Mission is to show and share the rich traditions, diverse landscapes and the stunning nature & wildlife. This is my Canada, a place that I’m privileged and proud to call home and for me, it’s simply “the most beautiful place on this planet”.  After more than 30 years of traveling around the World, from Asia to Europe, North Africa and North America, I guess I’m allowed to say that.

My ultimate goal is to develop “CST” as a Western Canada Tour Guiding & Tour Development business that makes Traveling Throughout Canada Accessible for all Travelers!!

My passion is Tour Guiding and sharing the experience and knowledge I gained while discovering Canada since my first visit back in 1991.  Check my credentials below and adding to it that I’ve executed multiple tours with multiple groups from multiple different countries, might give you a better understanding of my Tour Guiding Services and why this also enables me to advice you further on the creation of your unique and special tour itineraries.

Please do not hesitate to contact me, I would be delighted to hear from you!
