Details

This 3-hour private walking tour is a combination of two of our most popular itineraries – Downtown Vancouver and Gastown & Chinatown and is set to be our best selling tour in Vancouver.

Get ready to explore the heart and soul of the city as we make our way through the most historic neighbourhoods. You’ll hear some of the gruesome stories from days gone by and learn of the colourful characters who helped shape the city.

Depending on your interests, we’ll stop by one of three local businesses to learn more about what makes Vancouver such a popular stop for visitors to Canada.

Your private guide will escort you through narrow alleys, to award-winning gardens, and through beautiful buildings, on a quest to show you the best downtown Vancouver has to offer.

And of course, all of this will be photographed so you have the memories to last a lifetime!

Our first time in Canada will hopefully not be our last. Such a beautiful city and the perfect way to see it - with a local expert like Alex. Thanks for a wonderful morning and we loved the photos.

This was a last minute trip so we didn't have anything planned. We stumbled across the Boutique Traveler on Tripadvisor and it turned out to be a great decision. Being an older couple, we were very pleased to have Alex as our guide. He was warm and welcoming and my husband and we both learned a lot. Having a personal guide made all the difference and we will take another tour with Alex when we return next year.

Was visiting Vancouver with a few friends for my 50th and one of them had taken a Boutique Traveler tour in San Francisco so suggested we book. We had a blast and got a little silly with our photos. Big thanks to Alex for putting up with us 🙂

My first trip to Canada and now I want to come back. Jess was an excellent guide and made it feel like we were just a bunch of friends walking the city at the end of the tour. She's a great photographer and we loved the pictures.

Fantastic tour! I was visiting for a conference and they were able to accommodate me at a later time so I can take the tour after hours. Was great to hang out with a local and it was a nice casual vibe. Photos were a great addition too.

My wife and I were visiting Vancouver on our way to go skiing and had a few to hours spare so decided to take a tour. Though some of the places were closed (due to Christmas) we still had a wonderful time and will likely book another tour in the future.

Had such a wonderful time with Alex. We were only in Vancouver for the day as we were headed to Whistler and felt like we really got to see so much in such a short space.
