Wat je gaat doen

Immerse yourself in the chilling dramas of historic Gastown as you venture into Vancouver's earliest and most gruesome history on this 90-minute walking tour. Follow the lamplight of your guide as you discover the terror of a Great Fire that ate up Gastown in minutes, the long forgotten plague of smallpox, and the unsolved murder of John Bray.

Designed for adult audiences, the experience is both a walking tour and a theatre piece. Your guide is a professional actor, performing in character throughout. Every story is grounded in documented Vancouver history, taken from the city archives. The plot line is woven together as the tragic tale of one person's life, ending in a dramatic finale in Gastown's Maple Tree Square.

Every one of Gastown's must-see sites and landmarks is visited on the walk, the oldest hotel, the Gastown Steam Clock, you’ll 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.

Do not expect a ghost tour or conventional walking tour – this is a performance 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…

Loved it but bring your mask. They allowed more than 10 people when the description said no more than 10 people in a group for safety. Often, we were closer together than 2 meters and not everyone wore a mask. Still worth it. I was just disappointed that they allowed more than 10 people so that social distancing was impossible during most of the tour . . .

Eric was great acting as George. He kept in character till the end of the tour and played off his surroundings coyly and humorously. He really made plain-looking scenes come to life with his stories. Definitely a must-go tour if you are into learning a little more about Gastown through theatrical performance.
