  • Vancouver: City Secrets Guided Tour

    8. Vancouver: City Secrets Guided Tour

    Begin the story at the famous Gastown Steam Clock. Your guide will share the tales of the villains, crooked politicians, and mobsters that ruled the city in the roaring twenties when the saloon doors swung closed and Vancouver became a den of illicit booze, crime, and vice. As you walk past ornate heritage buildings, down narrow alleyways unchanged in over a hundred years, and along historic streets once teeming with bawdy houses, opium dens, and blind pigs, you’ll discover a unique perspective on Vancouver’s history.  Finish the walking tour on the cobblestone streets of Maple Tree Square, surrounded by Gastown's most talked about bars and restaurants. It's the perfect place to share a post-tour dinner or drinks after learning why former mayor LD Taylor once said, “this is a port city, we ain’t no Sunday School town!”

    Really well-done tour with plenty of information that you won't get from "official" sources. Lenard is a great tour guide with tons of enthusiasm and knowledge. Lenard is a true local and you can feel that. The only improvement (but still giving 5 stars) would be that we would have liked to walk more and stand less ;-) it got hard after an 11 hour flight and 9 hours of jetlag!
