One of the worst tours we've ever attended. Very disappointing, even the meeting place was wrong so not a good start. Lack of information and tour guide although friendly didn't seem much knowledgeable. Most stops were either irrelevant to the history of Gastown or wasn't clear how and when they were linked to it.

My group did the Vancouver tour around Gastown and we were so glad we did! We didn't know there could be so much history in such a new city. He showed us things we would have never noticed ourselves. If you want a walking tour of Vancouver, I highly recommend you do this one.

Moises was very professional and very nice. We ended up going on a private tour because we were the only ones who arrived at the specified time and it was great!
