Wat je gaat doen

Discover the jaw-dropping beauty – and sinister stories – of Stanley Park. Behind those majestic forests, picturesque gardens and stunning beaches lies a history of buried treasure, shocking crime scenes, and the ghostly lore of Deadman’s Island. You’ll explore the famous seawall, dark forested trails, historic totem poles, notorious crime scenes and more! As you stroll along with your guide Glenn, Aman, Theo, Will, or Rowan, you'll hear the inside story of one of the world's most remarkable parks.

Meeting your guide outside the Vancouver Aquarium you’ll soon venture down a path beneath towering groves of Cedar, Hemlock and Douglas Fir, some hundreds of years old -- a genuine Pacific Northwest forest experience. After a tale of long lost treasure, you’ll pop out onto the famous seawall to discover the secret history of Deadman’s Island.

You’ll see Stanley Park’s world famous totem poles close up, before you stroll the seawall with its jaw-dropping views of downtown and the north shore mountains. You’ll find the long lost indigenous village of Whoiwhoi and end your tour with a shocking tale of true crime. From there it’s a short stroll back to the start point with your guide!

Theo was an excellent guide, we loved his use of real photographs to illustrate the history and stories of the areas we were shown. Beautiful time of year with the leave changing colour. Grateful for the acknowledgement of indigenous history.

Rowan is a great story teller and more than made up for the closed trails by still taking us to interesting views and telling the interesting stories.

This was a great tour with a variety of locations and stories. Prepare for quite a bit of walking ... wear comfortable shoes. Perfect for adults who like to learn fun facts and hear interesting stories. Our guide Theo was amazing! It was a treat to go behind the scenes.

The Guide was so knowledgeable, happened to chat him up after the tour and he was even able talk about the history of the rest of the city and specific neighborhoods. Also appreciated his insight on indigenous communities that were here before the region was “discovered”. HIGHLY recommend!
