Hit the mean streets of Vancouver with a professional guide as you learn about rum-runners, mobsters, and dirty cops on a walk through Downtown and Gastown. Meet up with your guide and set out on foot, listening to tales of illicit activity in this coastal city at the turn of century. Learn about real historical figures like feared mob boss Joe Celona, Prohibition Commissioner Walter Findlay, and “King of the Gamblers” Shue Moy. Hear how the mob set up illegal drinking dens around the city and bribed dirty cops to look the other way. Listen to tales of longtime mayor L.D. Taylor and his infamously raucous parties, and discover how enterprising Vancouver rum-runners made their fortunes smuggling booze down the coast once the US adopted Prohibition as well. Make your way through Victory Square and scope out fabled buildings like the Dominion Building and the Sun Tower. Stroll down the best-preserved alleyway in the city to really feel like you've traveled back in time. And finish up the tour in Gastown's historic Maple Tree Square, the heart of the city’s finest restaurant and bar scene. The perfect place to grab a post-tour cocktail and reminisce over your evening of adventure!
