Vancouver Secrets of Stanley Park Walking Tour
USD 26.56
Overview

See Stanley Park in a way few tourists ever get to see it. This narrated walking tour of one of Vancouver’s best-loved spots gives you a look at secluded paths, a famous totem pole, weird and wonderful public art, tragic tales from history, and a visit to what remains of a village that was almost lost to the passage of time.

What to Expect

Meet your guide and storyteller for the afternoon outside the Vancouver Aquarium, and get ready to learn the secrets of Stanley Park. Take a hidden path to the seawall, where you’re treated to views of Coal Harbour and hear the chilling tale of Deadman’s Island.

A quick break gives you time to see authentic First Nations totem poles before returning to the secret side of the park. Tales of a forgotten cemetery, a lost village, and Stanley Park’s most notorious crime compete for interest with the public art you pass, as you stroll past centuries-old trees that have grown in the park since the time before Captain Vancouver sailed up the Burrard Inlet.

Having seen a part of Vancouver even locals may have missed, your tour ends back at your starting point.
