“Walking tour of Vancouver - City and Gastown”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2013

I had Lauren as my tour guide and she was great. She was very informative and you could tell had a passion for history.
We walked around a lot of the city and then onto Gastown. This tour lasted about 2 hours and for someone who is just moving to Vancouver was a great way to get a feel for the city.
These tours are free and the tour guides just work on tips.
I would defiantly recommend

“One of the best things I did in Vancouver!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2013

I did this tour with a friend of mine who has lived in Vancouver for a few years, and we both really enjoyed it. Tour guide was interesting, fun, and engaging, and while the tour went for almost 2 hours, the distance we walked wasn't exhausting, nor were we ever bored. Full of interesting historical facts as well as more recent stories, I found this to be one of the best things we've done during our time in Canada. Although the tour times are a little restricted in winter, I would highly recommend making time for this.

The Downtown and Waterfront tour is a great way to see some of Vancouver and learn along the way. Lauren was a great guide - friendly, helpful and knows a lot about the city. I'd definitely recommend this tour!

“A great intro to downtown Vancouver and Gastown!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2013

Our guide, Lauren, was very knowledgeable and entertaining. This was a really interesting (and cheap) way to get an understanding of Vancouver's history and culture.
