About Vancouver DeTours
Vancouver DeTours Vancouver DeTours is a new project from the acclaimed Tour Guys collective of walking tour guides. Take a deep dive into the multilayered history and spaces of the city by going off-course from the standard paths and stories. A ‘detour’ is an indirect route or digression, but to DeTour is also to un-know and reimagine Vancouver in critical new ways.

Ali was a fabulous tour guide, giving us more than we could have expected! He took our team of five city and politics geeks though downtown, telling us the real history of Vancouver as we walked through it, sharing all the gritty details of Vancouver past and not just the fantasy stories you hear after jumping off a tour bus for a 5-minute "hit and run" in Gastown. He answered our team's questions questions, shared historical photos on his iPad along the way, and gave us an unprecedented context of the Vancouver around us. Could not recommend more highly - an absolute must-do as a private group the next time you're in Vancouver!

We had such a great time walking around downtown and the waterfront! Ali was very informative, fun and interesting. We learned a lot about the city, Ali's story telling was perfect! We are four friends from Europe (France, Germany and Sweden), in Vancouver for one day after a ski trip in BC. We all enjoyed the tour a lot, we highly recommend it. Walking tours with locals are really the best way to discover a city. Thanks Ali and Tour Guys!!

We did the Gastown tour with Jayne and she was very good. Full of information from a local Vancouverite and she really knew how to make the tour interesting. Highly recommend the tour to any new visitors to Vancouver.

For a first-time introduction to Vancouver, this tour covered a fair area of the city and we were treated to a great display of historical knowledge, anecdotes and informative commentary. Will book another tour if we visit Vancouver again. Thanks
