Overview
This is "a champagne and chocolate kind of tour", a leisurely, carefully curated, art journey into the personal studios of some of Canada's most celebrated artists. We know it can be difficult to find the right kind of tour. Our tours are known for their emotional impact and cultural embodiment. Let us show you the Coast! Skip the lines and costly ferry reservations by starting this relaxing tour off with a mid-morning pick-up from the Langdale Ferry terminal near Gibsons. Enjoy a wonderfully picturesque 37 minute ferry to the Coast where you will board your luxurious and spacious tour van and make way to your first artist studio. This exclusive tour visits four studio/galleries and focuses on getting you behind the scenes directly with the artists themselves to learn about their inspirations and artistic processes. This relaxing and highly curated 7.5-hour tour includes a delicious one-hour lunch, snacks and beverages throughout.

On a whim, as a 'Team Building' exercise, I decided to have our small company staff of eight take the Sunshine Coast Art Tour, which focuses on delivering participants directly to the artists' studio workshops. Douglas Bevans, our tour guide, picked us up in his 15

Artists and their work spaces are fascinating places to visit. They are almost spiritual! And Douglas' personal relationship with the artists makes the visit that much easier.

This is an absolute must for locals and visitors alike! If you live here and like me are shy to pop into the artists' studios who are flagged with the purple banners, this is a wonderful way to eliminate that barrier. Being an artist himself, Douglas Bevans is respectful of his
