Explore the secrets of Stanley Park on a 3-hour insider walking tour with an expert local guide. You’ll explore the famous seawall, dark forested trails, secret cemeteries, historic totem poles, notorious crime scenes and more! As you stroll along with your guide Glenn, Will, or Lina, you'll hear the inside story of one of the world's most remarkable parks.

Meeting your guide outside the Vancouver Aquarium you’ll soon venture down a path beneath towering groves of Cedar, Hemlock and Douglas Fir, some hundreds of years old -- a genuine Pacific Northwest forest experience. After a tale of long lost treasure, you’ll pop out onto the famous seawall to discover the secret history of Deadman’s Island.

At the world famous totem poles you’ll take a 10 minute break, before you stroll the seawall with its jaw-dropping views of downtown and the north shore mountains. You’ll hear the murky tales of backroom dealing that led to the construction of the park, discover secret cemeteries, find the long lost indigenous village of Whoi Whoi and end your tour with a shocking tale of true crime. From there it’s a short stroll back to the start point with your guide!
