Spooky Adult Walking Tours

Walking tours in Vancouver aren’t only for tourists! They are also a fun way for adults to have fun, especially at Halloween.

Forbidden Vancouver is a local family-owned company that offers a selection of guided walking tours throughout the year, including fabulously spooky ones in October! Small groups are guided through the streets and back alleys of downtown Vancouver, or along the Seawall and forested trails of Stanley Park, all depending on which tour you select.

Each tour is led by a professional actor and costs around $30, or $25 for students, plus or minus a couple of dollars. They are all excellent and good value for your money!

Forbidden City Walking Tour Guide

The following tours with Forbidden Vancouver are designed for adults, although the last one (in Stanley Park) is good for anyone ages 14+:

  • Lost Souls of Gastown – on these tours through the streets and back lanes of historic Gastown you’ll be entertained while learning about Vancouver’s early days. They happen on Tuesdays, Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays, plus every evening of the week during the second half of October. Tours start downtown at 8 o’clock in the square across the street from the Holy Rosary Cathedral (which is located at 646 Richards Street). They finish about 90 minutes (and 1 kilometre) later in Gastown at Maple Tree Square. We did this tour last year at Halloween and it was so much fun! The cost is $28 for adults and $25 for students and seniors.
  • Forbidden Tours – these are similar to the Lost Souls of Gastown tours in that they also take place in downtown Vancouver and have the same start and finish locations. On the Forbidden Tours the group wanders through Victory Square, Chinatown and Gastown while listening to stories about opium dens, crime and other elements of the city’s history. The tours depart daily at 7:00 pm in October and finish around two hours (and 1 km) later. The cost is $28 for adults and $25 for students and seniors.
  • Secrets of Stanley Park – these tours take place from April until November in the afternoons, not evenings, and they are recommended for folk ages 14+. As the name suggests, the tours go through world-famous Stanley Park, both along the seawall and through forested trails. The tours depart from outside the Vancouver Aquarium on Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays at 2 o’clock. They go for about two and a half hours and cost $32 for adults and $28 for students and seniors. They are indeed a most interesting way to explore and learn about beautiful Stanley Park!

Haunted Houses at Halloween
