I had the pleasure of taking one of James’ walking tours awhile ago. It was a two-hour excursion that took participants through Vancouver’s first neighbourhood—the East End (or Strathcona as it is presently called). I was impressed by James’ extensive knowledge of the area, as well as his genuine passion and appreciation for the neighbourhood and its long and colourful history. The stories were lively, the architecture stunning, and the archival photographs, which James’ showed along the way, compelling. The East End tour is suitable both for tourists as well as long-time residents of the city. I have lived in Vancouver for three decades but it became quickly evident to me how little I knew about the city and its earliest neighbourhood until I took his tour! James is friendly and engaging, and I’d recommend any of his tours for a more authentic experience of the city.
