"Vice, Dice, and Opium Pipes" Walking Tour - SINS of the City

Walk the beat and see what it was like to be a cop over a century ago, when Vancouver was a seething hub of sex, drugs, corruption and organized crime. Our walking tour, Vice, Dice & Opium Pipes, will take you through the streets of Vancouver's Chinatown, one of the nation's oldest neighbourhoods, where you will learn about the brothels, bootleggers, gamblers and gangsters that ruled the town over a century ago. Hear about famed criminals like Joe Celona, who had ties to liquor, gambling and prostitution, and learn about the booming opium dens that plagued the city's rich and poor at every turn. A two-hour walk, this tour gives you first-hand access to the very streets and alleys where some of the nation's most notorious crimes took place. You'll see a side of the city that truly puts a new spin on the term "the wild West." 16+ Tour.
