“Truly Entertaining and Highly Recommended”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2012

This was definitely one of the best walking tours I have been on. Will greeted the tour group in a warm and friendly manner and went on to deliver a very engaging tour with his fine acting and story-telling abilities. Prepare to be transported to the late 1800's when Gastown was in its infancy and ripe with intriguing (and sometimes shady) characters. You'll be entertained and also learn some things about Gastown you may not have known. This is a great event/activity to enjoy with friends, family or your significant other. Finally, the tour leaves you with a sense of mystery and curiosity as you make off into the evening where you can enjoy some great post-tour grub at any of the fine restaurants Gastown has to offer. Check it out!

“Captivating”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2012

I took my boyfriend on this tour to do something a little different on 'date night'. I was mesmermized by the story and Jason thought it was like watching the History Channel but in real life!

I learned so many interesting facts about Vancouver and reccomend this tour to everyone!

“Excellent!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2012

We attended the tour two weeks ago with friends visiting from overseas. It was delightful and interesting. I have never seen Vancouver like this and since then I have a better eye for the details of the city. Thank you Will for a great afternoon, we plan on booking the Halloween Special, too.
Keep up the good work, cheers!

“Fantastic Tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2012

Thanks Will for a fun evening full of information on Vancouver. It was interesting to hear how the city developed through the sleazy underworld of what was happening in the early days. Very entertaining and engaging. Easy walking style for all ages. Would recommend this worthwhile tour when in Vancouver!
