HOW IT ALL STARTED…

 

Daud Grewal, born and raised in Niagara, started See Sight Tours with the help of his beloved mother while he was still in high school. He came up with the idea while he was working as a parking lot attendant at a local tourist attraction. He saw big sightseeing buses crammed with tourists and he was sure there was a much more comfortable and personable way to provide sightseeing tours. His idea was simple, to give personable, private tour experiences in his family van.

Knowing little to nothing about business or sightseeing he wrote a quick 18 point plan on the back of a parking lot sheet and implemented it. Daud’s plan consisted of standing in front of a motel and sell his tour to guests on the street. He transformed a workbench he had made in his wood working class into a make shift tour booth with handwritten signs. Unfortunately, he was unable to convince anyone to take a tour and often people would see the signs and suggest he had misspelt “See Sight Tours” and it ought to be “sightseeing tours”.

After three weeks of trying to make a sale people started to suggest that he should give up and make the money his mother loaned him by working at a local Tim Hortons. Luckily, despite the failures and the suggestions to give up he kept going until he made his first sale on Canada Day, July 1st, 2006.

See Sight Tours was a success and continued to grow while he graduated high school with awards and distinction and then went on to study Political Science at Brock University. At Brock University Daud became heavily involved in student life and his success in student life allowed him to get elected by the student body as the Vice-President and then as the President of the Brock University Students Union (BUSU).

After completing his term at BUSU Daud graduated and came back to See Sight Tours in 2012 with even more vigor and passion in providing the best Niagara Falls experiences and sharing all the hidden beauty and wonderful culture that often goes unseen.
