This was an excellent walking tour! The guide Amon rhymes with Salmon was fascinating to listen to and he had a very humorous way of passing on all the information he had to share. We were taken to some interesting places and buildings and each one had a link and a story relating to the days of prohibition. Great tour, definitely recommend.
I had Nevada as my tour guide and I loved this tour so much. We started at the Cathedral on Dunsmuir and travelled down to the Dominion Building, Chinatown and ended at GasTown. It was a wonderful and thorough explanation of what went down in the 1910's and 20s during the prohibition era, and taught me a lot about the city's history with immigrants, bootlegging, laws, key persona at the time, and all the major secrets! What really sold the adventure was the real life photos that Nevada showed us. The pictures really took us back to how life was like then so that it wasn't just a fairy tale, it made it real.
Thank you Nevada for the great time!
This tour was amazing!

Very comprehensive and informative. Almon was great.
The guide was great as well as the tour. The guide provided in a really nice way interesting details about both Chinatown and Gastown. I really advise to do this tour.
Enjoyed the tour and the guide was great and knowledgable. Only downside was the Weather as it was a torrential downpour.
Great introduction to some of the details of life way back then in Vancouver. Energetic and interactive with relevant commentary throughout and led by a knowledgeable guide and a steady pace so all could keep up. Meeting point is a little vague and not necessarily somewhere I'd like to hang around by myself for too long. Overall really enjoyable and educational.
Growing up in Vancouver I learned much more than I thought I would. The guide was very entertaining and engaging. Definitely recomend for locals and tourists alike.
Generally very informative about the early history of Vancouver. A lively commentary.
Personally I would have preferred not to traverse the less salubrious area area between Chinatown and Gastown. There were many people 'down on their luck' or with various issues that was off putting.
