A TASTE OF THE TOUR

Explore Art Deco in Downtown Vancouver

Join us for a walking tour on to explore downtown Vancouver’s Art Deco beauties — from the streamlined sophistication of the Vogue Theatre, to the minarets and mosaics of the Commodore Ballroom, to the ornate decadence of the Marine Building, and much more in between! It’s your chance to unlock the history of these remarkable buildings.

On your Art Deco architecture walking tour you’ll hear how Art Deco swept out of Paris in the 1920s and took North America by storm. It’s the story of how war, technology, immigration, fashion, social upheaval, and archeology succeeded in tearing up the rule book on architecture.

Enjoy Vancouver’s finest chocolate!

How do you improve on three hours exploring Vancouver’s remarkable Art Deco history and architecture with a professional Forbidden Vancouver Walking Tours storyteller as your guide? Add chocolate!

On the tour you’ll visit two legendary Vancouver chocolatiers who serve up locally-made hand-crafted chocolate at its finest. And you’ll hear first hand why Vancouver is making a name for itself in the international chocolate scene. Chocolate tastings are included in your ticket price.
