What is "Secrets of the City"? One could call it "A Guided Tour of an Unknown Location", or perhaps "Mystery Urban Exploration". This independently organized tour gives you an insider's look at some of the city of Vancouver's great urban and industrial spaces. Full of history and intrigue, often with an insight into "how stuff works", these tours give admission to private places normally off limits to the general public.
Tours in the past have included the Post Office tunnel that runs from Georgia and Hamilton to Cordova; the basement catacombs of the Vancouver Art Gallery; the Hotel Vancouver's roof with the abandoned CBC radio studios; and a host of other unique locations. Tours generally last under 2 hours, and transportation is provided.
The clue for the November tour: "At rest for the winter".
Please wear non-slip shoes and dress for the weather.
Tickets for the November excursion will be available on the morning at the bus. Tickets are 20 dollars (Vancouver Museum membership discounts honoured until the March tour). Bus departs at 10:00am from the front of the Vancouver Museum; we should return by 12:30pm.
Secrets of the City is no longer associated with the Vancouver Museum so please direct enquires or questions to johnatkin at shaw dot ca
Secrets of the City will take a December break but will back in January.
Future dates: Jan. 20th., Feb. 17th., Mar. 17th., April 21st., and May 19th.
