What you'll do

Discover Vancouver’s most impressive Art Deco architecture on a stroll through the city’s Downtown area. Your guide Will, Lina, or Tim will share the remarkable story of each building you visit, including the tales of bootlegging, scandal, and murder that lurk behind the elegant exteriors. Your walking tour also includes two stops at award-winning local chocolatiers for generous tastings, the perfect complement to your adventure into Vancouver’s early twentieth century history. This includes your very own bar of Mink Chocolate's Mermaid's Choice, the chocolate bar that won Gold at the 2014 International Chocolate Salon in San Francisco. This walking tour is a must-do for both chocolate fans and history buffs alike! Art Deco swept out of Paris in the 1920s and took the world by storm. With its mixture of sleek curves and ornate details inspired by ancient civilizations, Art Deco revolutionized design forever. Today we're fortunate that Vancouver is blessed with some of the finest examples of Art Deco architecture on the West Coast - on this walking tour you'll visit them for yourself! Be prepared to walk, learn, look, laugh, and enjoy some of the best chocolate you'll ever eat!
