AHA MEDIA found the walk a delightful  blend of a historical tour and a theatrical performance.  It was like taking part of a National Film Board of Canada documentary but in real time and experience :)

A unique blend of historical tour and street theatre, this one hour walk will make you experience Vancouver as though for the first time.  Using the city as their stage, The Miss Guides will lead you through the gritty underbelly of a city teeming with secrets.
