Vancouver By Night Mystery Bus Tour

The Vancouver Heritage Foundation (VHF) and John Atkin are heading out for a mystery night-time tour around Vancouver’s heritage streetscapes. See what’s changed, what remains and what’s ahead in the city’s urban landscape from a uniquely ‘after dark’ perspective. Four mystery stops take us through different neighbourhoods with a chance to hop off the bus and explore by foot. While travelling between the secret locations tour-goers will enjoy archival images, anecdotes and stories as well as a delicious night-time snack from a local shop. There may even be a surprise or two, so be prepared for anything!

So what will you see on the Vancouver By Night Mystery Bus tour?

The route is a mystery, that’s the fun of it! But you can be prepared to see iconic Vancouver sites and buildings, heritage structures that are evolving with our growing city and incredible evening views of sparkling city lights (weather permitting). Each stop is a fascinating part of our history, and some are not normally open to the public after hours. Please note that we will be getting off the bus at each stop and there will be a bit of walking and some stairs required to best enjoy the tour. Wear comfortable walking shoes, dress for the weather and you may want to bring a flashlight and your sense of adventure!

Thursday, November 9th from 5:30 – 9pm Tickets $40

For those who joined us on the inaugural Vancouver By Night Bus Tour, rest assured we have a completely new route to show you with four brand new stops. Thank you to tour sponsor International Stage Lines.
