We had a guided tour through Vancouver by Jeff. It was great to hear about the city from a true local who provided us with a great deal of history and knowledge about Vancouver. Thanks Jeff!! Christina

I would recommend this trip to everyone. What really made it was Jeff our tour guide (the only First Nation guide apparently). His knowledge of the area all the way to and from Vancouver and they way he gets it across was excellent.

However we were slightly disappointed as it cost $398 for both of us and we had just under 1 hour at Butchart gardens but 4 hours in Victoria. We had to rush round the gardens and could not... More

Great tour with Gordie as our tour guide who was very informative and knowledgeable. Just me, Mr W and another lady on the tour. Saw all of Vancouver's sights with an hours stop on Granville Island so we could get some lunch. Highly recommended

Staying in Gastown

Neighborhood Profile
Gastown
A visit to Gastown is like turning back the clock and stepping into a bygone era. With the distinction of being Vancouver's oldest neighborhood, the many plaques that stud the cobbled streets of Gastown tell the story of its colorful past, giving Vancouver's history a more lively presence here than anywhere else. Having been originally founded around a popular worker's saloon, it's no wonder that today some of Vancouver's best micro-breweries, creative cocktail joints, and corner bars can be found in this area. Classical charm suffuses its many vintage boutiques and the brick-built structures that an army of creative professionals call home.
