5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2016

Wow! Didn't really know what to expect, but this tour turned out to be a theatrical drama and a history lesson. Laurie our 'lost soul' stayed in character the entire tour and shared vivid stories of old Vancouver and its residents while we walked through the back alleys of Gastown. Loved it!

This tour was awesome,very entertaining and the story teller had as enthralled from start to finish. The tour was an excellent evening adventure learning about the history of Vancouver and Gas Town through some very unique and colourful story telling.

4 star rating: Recommended September 2015

I thought this was going to be a ghost type of tour, but i'm glad it turned out to be about history of Vancouver. The tour guide Greg or Mark - sorry I forget was really good at telling the story and walking us through Vancouver at night. My friend recommended the tour.


4 star rating: Recommended August 2015

Our group of four teens and grandparents all enjoyed the version of Sarah's story. It was different from other walking tours, nicely done, and gave insight and a different slant on history of early Vancouver particularly around the time of the Klondike gold rush days that none of us knew much about.

3 star rating: Worth doing July 2016

It was worth doing, but not over the top fantastic. We liked our tour guide - you could tell she was trying REALLY hard to make it interesting - something was missing though. Maybe I was expecting too much.
