Reviewed 14 August 2014

This tour provided both history - complete with stories of the people and events of the late 1800s and early 1900s - and dramatic story telling. The tour guide was excellent and provided old photos of the city (before and after the fire) and its people. I highly recommend taking time to do this tour.

Me and my friend joined the tour on a saturday night. Around 10 people , pretty good group size, not too many not too few. We followed the guide to many historic buildings and learned about their owners' stories. The tour guide asked us interesting questions and the trip is interactive and fun. Definitely recommend this trip to people who wants to hear about the city's history (darker side)!

The more I learned about Vancouver's colourful history, the more I appreciated the city, and the Prohibition tour brought it all to life. The guide, in era-appropriate costume, quickly built up a friendly atmosphere in our good-sized group, putting everyone at ease while leading us to discover fascinating details about the city. Surprising how much of a buzz it gave us all. Recommended.

This was a fun way to get a bit of history. The actor was wonderful! There was only my family and one other person, so things were a bit awkward at times. I would definitely recommend it!

This was a great way to learn about some of the beginning history of Vancouver. Our host was both informative and entertaining. Assuming the character of a person who lived during the time period was a stroke of genius as it brought the history alive. Our guide did an outstanding job of portraying the feelings and emotions of the character he represented. Well done !!! Was sorry when it ended.
