Discover Vancouver’s forbidden history on a private tour!

If you and your family, friends or colleagues are inquisitive, adventurous and interested in the fascinating, scandalous past of this city, then a private Forbidden Vancouver walking tour is for you.

Our private tours are popular for birthday celebrations, club outings, corporate social events, team-building, and more. In fact, we’ll accept any excuse to get out on the streets of Vancouver and explore the city’s forbidden history…

Simple to arrange

With our team of twelve storytellers, we’re ready to accommodate private groups as small as 4 people and as large as 100. Choose from the Forbidden Tour, Secrets of Stanley Park, Art Deco and Chocolate Tasting, or the Really Gay History Tour.

Special event Secrets of the Penthouse can be staged for groups of 20 and more.

We’re happy to work with your schedule, just let us know when you want your private event to happen and we’ll do our best to accommodate your needs.

We don’t offer the Lost Souls of Gastown as a private tour, but large group bookings on our public tours are welcome! Our public Lost Souls of Gastown tours happen Tues, Thurs, Fri, and Sat nights, March through November.
