Sins of the City Tours

With our expert guides and historians, you’ll hear tales about the Vancouver's legendary history of drugs, prohibition, sex and scandal. Step through the narrow alleys of Chinatown and through the derelict dens of the Downtown Eastside to learn about crooked criminals and devious deeds that plagued the city over a century ago.

My wife and I did the Sins of the City tour. It was very interesting and was a great way to see party if the city!Beck H.
It’s fun and interesting. Not too small as I imagined if you like to read the info about the objects and exhibitions and get the most out of the experience. It’s pretty cool that the building used to be a coroner’s office with a real morgue and autopsy room as you can see in your visit. Recommended.Fabiane Niemeyer
