Wat je gaat doen

Saunter through Downtown Vancouver of the 1920s and 1930s to discover the riveting stories of glamour, intrigue, and deceit behind the city’s best Art Deco architecture, all while sampling decadent delicacies from the finest chocolatiers in town. Your guide Kelsey, Glenn, Will, Lina, or Tim will share the remarkable story of each building you visit, including the tales of bootlegging, scandal, and murder that lurk behind the elegant exteriors.

Your walking tour also includes two stops at award-winning local chocolatiers for generous tastings, the perfect complement to your adventure into Vancouver’s early twentieth century history. This includes your very own bar of Mink Chocolate's Mermaid's Choice, the chocolate bar that won Gold at the International Chocolate Salon in San Francisco. This walking tour is a must-do for both chocolate fans and history buffs alike!

Art Deco swept out of Paris in the 1920s and took the world by storm. With its mixture of sleek curves and ornate details inspired by ancient civilizations, Art Deco revolutionized design forever. Today we're fortunate that Vancouver is blessed with some of the finest examples of Art Deco architecture on the West Coast - on this walking tour you'll visit them for yourself!

Be prepared to walk, learn, look, laugh, and enjoy some of the best chocolate you'll ever eat!

This was an excellent way to spend some time wandering downtown Vancouver. The host and his stories about deco era events were engaging. In addition to external views, there was access to some very cool interior spaces. The examples become more interesting in a way that keeps your interest going as the appreciation of details increase. The two chocolate breaks were delicious. We had a great time!

We took the Art Deco and chocolate tour with Lena. She was very knowledgeable and entertaining and we learned so much during the tour. The tour is really more about Vancouver history than Art Deco architecture. As someone who hadn’t been to Vancouver in the past I thought maybe they had a lot of Art Deco structures, but it’s really only a few buildings. This wasn’t a problem for us, but if you’re interested in the tour purely for that aspect it might make a difference.
