Au programme

Hit the mean streets of Vancouver with a professional guide as you learn about rum-runners, mobsters, and dirty cops on a walk through Gastown.

Meet up with your guide and set out on foot, listening to tales of illicit activity in this coastal city at the turn of century. Learn about real historical figures like feared mob boss Joe Celona, Prohibition Commissioner Walter Findlay, and “King of the Gamblers” Shue Moy. Hear how the mob set up illegal drinking dens around the city and bribed dirty cops to look the other way. Listen to tales of longtime mayor L.D. Taylor and his infamously raucous parties, and discover how enterprising Vancouver rum-runners made their fortunes smuggling booze down the coast once the US adopted Prohibition as well.

Make your way through Victory Square and scope out fabled buildings like the Dominion Building. Stroll down the best-preserved alleyways in the city to really feel like you've traveled back in time. And finish up the tour in Gastown's historic Maple Tree Square, the heart of the city’s finest restaurant and bar scene. The perfect place to grab a post-tour cocktail and reminisce over your evening of adventure!

This was a great tour and introduced us to the awesome city of Vancouver. Despite the group being in the bigger side Amnon took the time to interact with all of us and constantly positioned all of us to make sure we can all see and hear the story being told. He made several great recommendations along the way and it was such a fun way to learn some of the history of this amazing city.

Glenn was an excellent story teller, very knowledgeable and kept the entire tour group engaged throughout the tour. He was patient and answered all of our questions. I would definitely recommend taking this tour with Glenn (with 2 Ns) :)

Incredibly interesting historical tour about the “Wild West”-esque days of Vancouver. Very insightful and interesting architecture. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and passionate about the history of Vancouver. Will and his team were very flexible with me as I got a migraine before my originally scheduled appointment and graciously allowed for me to hop onto another tour when I felt better. Would definitely take another tour through them again.
