Mobsters! Opium! Booze! Delve into Vancouver's dirtiest secrets on this scandal fuelled walking tour. You'll discover dirty cops, a corrupt Mayor, and travel back to 1917 when Prohibition hit us harder than a slug of bathtub gin. You'll visit Vancouver's most salacious building – the Sun Tower, marvel at the ornate Dominion Building, and walk the cobblestone streets where bootlegging, rum-running and illegal gambling once ran rampant. From back alley blind pigs to Chinatown opium dens – these ain't the kinda stories you'll hear on tour buses!
