The best thing about heritage walking tours is that you get a high quality of information from the city’s finest historians, authors and researches, and the tours are interesting for visitors and residents alike.

Tickets are $10 for Heritage Vancouver members and $15 for non-members and they’re available online — be sure to scoop yours up as these are known to sell out. Follow Heritage Vancouver on Twitter and Facebook for updates and event information.

The Vancouver Heritage Foundation also has a series of tours including one with an Art Deco theme next Friday.
