Forbidden Vancouver

Vancouver Activities & Team Building

On a Forbidden Vancouver walking tour you will explore the dark, the scandalous, and the downright shocking history of Vancouver. Everything from the great fire, unsolved murders, and smallpox outbreaks to showgirls, mobsters, and corrupt mayors.

You'll visit the city's oldest neighbourhoods, like Gastown, Victory Sq and Chinatown. And you'll hear the stories behind its finest heritage buildings.

Our private tours are popular for birthday celebrations, club outings, corporate social events, team-building, and more. In fact, we’ll accept any excuse to get out on the streets of Vancouver and explore the city’s dirty history…

- Each walking tour lasts around 1 hour 45 minutes.

- Starting point is Cathedral Sq, across the street from the Holy Rosary Cathedral at Dunsmuir & Richards.

- Custom start points are possible if within a ten minute walk of the normal start point.
