Mile Zero Tours was established by owner/operator David Rose whose vision was to open a quality travel company catering specifically to the needs of the residents of Vancouver Island. With over 18 years in the travel business, David brought his idea to fruition in 2014. Since then, the company has grown by leaps and bounds largely due to word of mouth client referrals within the community. Our service has grown now to serve guests from all communities along South Vancouver Island and the Lower Mainland.
As a proud BC owned and operated business, Mile Zero Tours’ primary objective is to provide first class guided travel experiences uniquely tailored to the needs and expectations of all our guests.
The name Mile Zero Tours was inspired by Victoria’s historic ‘Mile 0’ monument situated next to Beacon Hill Park. This well-known landmark is the start of the Trans-Canada Highway which stretches through all ten provinces to end in St. John’s, Newfoundland. It is one of the longest highways in the world and unites Canadians from coast to coast.
The Mile 0 landmark is a distinct symbol of British Columbia.
For us, it represents where all of our tours begin and end: at our home base on the West Coast of Canada. Our name also reflects our philosophy of travel. We believe that travel broadens the mind and gives each of us a different perspective on life. At Mile Zero Tours, we are on a mission to share this idea with the community. Our hope is that with every tour, we return home wiser, humbler and with a re-energized perspective on life.
