1. Vancouver: Lost Souls of Gastown Tour
Venture into Vancouver's earliest and most gruesome history on this 90-minute walking tour. Designed for adult audiences, the experience is both a walking tour and a theatre piece. Every story is grounded in documented Vancouver history, taken from the city archives. The plotline is woven together as the tragic tale of one person's life, ending in a dramatic finale in the heart of Gastown's Maple Tree Square. Do not expect a ghost tour or conventional walking tour – this is an experience that will pull you so deep into the swirling lamplight and darkened alleys of Gastown’s murky past you may have a hard time finding your way back out… As you travel along cobblestone streets you'll visit our city's oldest hotel - the Victorian, learn the truth about the historic Gastown Steam Clock, see how Vancouver looked before and after the Great Fire, explore notorious Gaoler's Mews, and walk down the back alleys of Water Street to famous Maple Tree Square. Every one of Gastown's must-see sites and landmarks is visited on the walk.
