What you'll do
This tour takes place in the famous Gastown neighborhood. Many tourists think Gastown is just the Steam Clock and Gassy Jack Statue, but it's not true! I have explored every corner of this neighborhood! So let a Vancouver local show you some of the secrets of Gastown. First, we will meet in Gastown at the entrance of the Waterfront Skytrain Station. Gastown is an edgy, trendy place with some of the best bars and restaurants in the city. It is also well-known for its old Victorian style architecture and design. Second, we will get away from the areas stuffed with tourists and start on our journey to discovering the best-kept secrets of Gastown! We'll be going in the back alleys behind unassuming restaurants and stores to discover walls covered with colorful graffiti. Then we'll head to an alley known for a bloody history and then later to the hidden corners of a popular parking lot. These are the places tourists would never think to check! Good thing you have access to a local! Third, we will be stopping in each alley to get some grungy, edgy, urban style pictures of you for your social media or for your own private memories. We can do between 1-5 shots of you in each alley!
