Explore Vancouver’s history and architecture with food tastings. Register Free Today
At VancityAsks.com, we endeavor to help locals rediscover the amazing city they live in and we also desire to help tourists to find the best Vancouver has to offer. As part of doing so, we carefully compile the best businesses and attractions in Vancouver on our website, manually curated and reviewed by locals.
This summer, we’re also offering free walking tours of Vancouver downtown core to show you around the best of this city. It’s impressive the amount of sights and experience packed into 3 hours! We have been careful with choosing the right tour guide to ensure you, the guest, have a pleasant experience of Vancovuer. Eac tour is lead by a local and friendly tour guide who enjoy showing guests around Vancouver, BC.
At the moment the tour runs weekly on Saturday. The tours explores ten points of interest leading from outside Vancouver Convention Centre to Gastown (where you’ll enjoy chocolates and coffee on the house!) then up to Robson (foodie enclave – try the Japadog), followed west to the Westend (get more chocolates?) and back down to Coal Harbor for breath taking views. You’ll explore the city of Vancouver and get a good lesson about the city’s history at different point of interests (Gassy Jack statue, Old Vancouver law courts, Olympic Torch).
Did we mention, it’s free!
