How gifting with Breakaway Experiences works:
This two-hour walking tour explores Vancouver’s most historic neighbourhoods - Gastown, Chinatown, and Victory Square. Your tour begins in the world of the saloon. You’ll hear tales of corrupt mayors, enterprising bootleggers, and “blind pigs”. Plus, you’ll walk down an alleyway once teaming with over 40 bawdy houses and see first-hand evidence of infamous opium dens. Along the way you’ll see some of the city’s greatest heritage buildings like the Sun Tower and the Dominion Building, which once battled to become the tallest building in the British Empire. Your guide will lead you through the alleyways and lanes of Gastown and Chinatown, where Vancouver’s history is soaked into the cobblestones and brick walls as Prohibition closed saloons, forcing law-abiding citizens into an underground world of illicit activity and bootlegged spirits.
Friendly, informative and professional guide.
