    Stop At: Vancouver Downtown, Vancouver, British Columbia Canada

    The walking tour starts at the Vogue Theatre, a streamlined beauty built on rum-running money. You’ll walk along Granville Street to the fabulous Commodore Ballroom, inspired by ancient middle eastern temples, to the Power Block, rich in the colours of ancient Egyptian artistry.

    Next up you’ll leave the world of Art Deco to hear tales of murder and fame at the Vancouver Art Gallery, solve the mystery of the three Hotels Vancouver, and marvel at a truly gigantic pendulum. Then it’s back to Art Deco for the long lost Georgia Medical & Dental Building before your final stop at the incredible Marine Building, where you’ll enjoy a private viewing of the gorgeous lobby.

    As you discover the beauty of Vancouver’s Art Deco architecture you'll indulge in delicious tastings from two local award-winning chocolatiers. This includes your very own bar of Mink Chocolate's Mermaid's Choice, the chocolate bar that won Gold at the 2014 International Chocolate Salon in San Francisco. This walking tour is a must-do for both chocolate fans and history buffs alike!

    The cherry on top of this tour is the chocolate, of course! Along the route you will stop at two of Vancouver's most famous chocolatiers to sample their wares and learn more about their craft.

    I can only imagine it might be a bit too long for them to keep attention. Some parts of Gastown are rough, so that might be another reason.
