Què farem?

Immerse yourself in the chilling dramas of historic Gastown as you venture into Vancouver's earliest and most gruesome history on this 90-minute walking tour. Follow the lamplight of your guide as you discover the terror of a Great Fire that ate up Gastown in minutes, the long forgotten plague of smallpox, and the unsolved murder of John Bray.

Designed for adult audiences, the experience is both a walking tour and a theatre piece. Your guide is a professional actor, performing in character throughout. Every story is grounded in documented Vancouver history, taken from the city archives. The plot line is woven together as the tragic tale of one person's life, ending in a dramatic finale in Gastown's Maple Tree Square.

Every one of Gastown's must-see sites and landmarks is visited on the walk, the oldest hotel, the Gastown Steam Clock, you’ll see how Vancouver looked before and after the Great Fire, explore notorious Gaoler's Mews, and walk down the back alleys of Water Street to famous Maple Tree Square.

Do not expect a ghost tour or conventional walking tour – this is a performance experience that will pull you so deep into the swirling lamplight and darkened alleys of Gastown’s murky past, you may have a hard time finding your way back out…

Janet did an excellent job as Sarah Bryers keeping us engaged in the unfolding story, and amused with her quick wit. It was a really fun way for a couple of locals to spend a balmy summer evening and learn more about the history of our city. Will definitely consider going on another of the Forbidden Vancouver tours!

The tour was great. Janet did a phenomenal job with her character and story telling. I was expecting it to be more “haunted” kind of history but this was still a great tour with some awesome information.

the narrative was good and so was the setting. we liked the overall theme but feel that the group may be was too large. the actress who played sarah was wonderful and made it a unique experience.
