What to expect

Discover a new side of Vancouver with a walking tour of the city’s most scandalous locations from the prohibition era. The tour will start at the Gastown Steam Clock and take you on a journey back to 1917, when prohibition was introduced in British Columbia. Your guide will tell you all about the history of the era, including the villains, politicians, and mobsters that controlled the city. You’ll walk through historic streets and alleyways, once home to opium dens and blind pigs. The tour will finish on the cobblestone streets of Maple Tree Square, where you can grab dinner or a drink at one of Gastown’s many bars and restaurants.
