President and CEO, Darin Feth began his career developing large parties back in 1983 for his High school friends and then into college offering parties that exceeded thousands of people dancing and having fun in an organized party atmosphere. Feth then conceptualized Nite Tours in 1988 opening the doors offering Nite Tours in 1990. Feth is the pioneer of Night Life Tourism, the world famous Club Crawl and the Party Bus. Feth has also owned transportation companies (double decker buses, motor coach and trolley buses), several night clubs, restaurants and is an Award winning International Entrepreneur!
After 7 years of traveling on the road doing stand up comedy, Darin and his high school friend, Shelley Roshko pioneered Nite Tours International in 1990 in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. This was the beginning of "Night Life Tourism", as we see it today. Feth received a lot of push back from others in the industry and despite these many obstacles, he and Roshko succeeded in taking Nite Tours from a "crazy idea" to the most innovative and fastest growing Tourism and Transportation Company in the world. The History of Nite Tours has been a rocky road and has not been full of glitz and glamor. The company has endured 2 recessions (1 recession when they opened their doors) the second in 2007, and still continued to grow. This proved that Nite Tours can sustain any economical set back and that everyone loves to leave their worries behind as they take a fun filled evening out with Nite Tours.
Feth recalls the first time they purchased a double decker bus from England and all the blood, sweat and tears that went into the old bus to make it Nite Tours first "Night Club on Wheels" or as people call it today the first "Party Bus". "The Bus had a full surround sound stereo and two floors to dance, stripper poles and an area to offer stand up comedy and skits. I remember doing stand up comedy on the bus as we traveled to each club and pub. I also recall the skits that Nite Tours VIP Hosts would do to entertain the clients." Those were great days!!! Today Nite Tours has surpassed all levels of quality and service in night life. Feth also recalls sleeping on a cement floor above a night club, when he experienced his first Nite Tours expansion in 1993. Feth states "We had no money, so i used my office as my apartment with no furniture except a desk, a chair to work from and a cement floor to sleep on with a sleeping bag and pillow. It is what a real entrepreneur does for the love of his company and drive to make it to the top.
You don't think about the obstacles, you focus on the end result". "Would i do it all over again? YES in a heart beat it made me the person I am today... the word NO is not in my vocabulary, it's replaced with How do we over come this and let's do it.
Nite Tours has had the best VIP Hosts in the world. When the company first opened Feth hired his friends who were comical and outgoing. From Doug Campbell, Brad Diemert, Kevin Trefenenko, Doug Timmer, Jim Lyons, Damian Shirley, to movie and TV stars like Nathan Fillion (ABC Castle, Firefly, etc). Today Nite Tours Hosts go through strict quality training in Las Vegas and sent to each city the company operates. Today, Feth prides his company on providing its clients with the most exciting and memorable experience that is easy, convenient and cost effective. Nite Tours currently runs in many cities in Canada, United States and opening throughout Europe, UK and Asia.
