What to expect

Explore Vancouver’s most impressive Art Deco buildings on a 2.5 hour walking tour through the city’s downtown. Your expert local guide will share the amazing story behind each place you visit, including accounts of bootlegging, scandal and murder. The tour begins at the Vogue Theatre, a striking building built on rum-running money. You'll move to Granville Street to the famous Commodore Ballroom, inspired by ancient Middle Eastern temples, on to the Power Block, rich in the colors of ancient Egyptian artistry.Then, you’ll leave the world of Art Deco to hear stories of murder and fame at the Vancouver Art Gallery, solve the mystery of the Three Hotels Vancouver, and marvel at a gigantic pendulum. Then it’s back to Art Deco for the long-lost Georgia Medical & Dental Building, before the last stop, a private viewing of the Marine Building lobby. The tour includes tastings at two award-winning local chocolatiers, the perfect complement to your adventure into Vancouver’s early 20th century history! You'll take home your very own bar of Mink Chocolate's Mermaid's Choice, the chocolate bar that won Gold at the 2014 International Chocolate Salon in San Francisco. This walking tour is a must-do for both chocolate fans and history buffs alike!
