Walking tours arent just for touristsat least not when theyre led by a
triumvirate of former Vancouver Art Gallery animateurs decked out in
black, red and Converse.
Cleverly named the Miss
Guides, the newly-formed cultural walking collective brings artistic
commentary typically held within white gallery walls into the city
streets. Starting at the corner of Granville and West Hastings, their
current tour Walking the Ruins: Fragments of Vancouver takes
you from Canada Line construction, up to the Harbour Centre Lookout and
through graffiti alley in Gastown, offering perceptive and snappy
citations on what you see every step of the way.
We dont want to give anything away, but hearing one guide affectionately
known as kidskid sing Somewhere Over the Rainbow while tourists situated
around the steam clock stare is definitely a cant-miss.
