Vancouver- Canada's Hollywood
Siggy57, 13-12-2022
Had a great experience even though it rained all the way through. We were going to participate rain or shine, I guess no one else wanted to. Learned a few things and definitely will be watching movies more closely for scenery matches. Our guide was giving us excellent infos, was very personable and we all enjoyed the tour and sightseeing , despite the rain.
Such a great idea for a tour!

This was such a great tour - I got to see more of the city than I thought I’d get to see and learn which movies and TV shows were filmed in which locations. We also got to see clips of the shows and films which really brought the locations to life. I’m such a film location geek and booked this tour at the last minute but I’m so glad I did! There were also activities on the tour which were really fun. I think it was really well organised and the whole concept of the tour was great. There was also an appreciation and awareness of the Indigenous Peoples which was great, and acknowledgment of the history. Our tour guide, Rahat, was brilliant. It was a really fun tour. Thank you!
Behind the Scenes in Vancouver

If you're a visitor to Vancouver (or a local) this is an awesome tour to several locations used by productions in Vancouver. It was very cool to see the actual places used in film and television production.

Being able to watch a clip of the scene while standing at the location was amazing and Austin was able to share the details that changed these familiar places into other "locations." It was fascinating to learn how many different productions use the same location for different projects and gain some insight into why some places show up again and again in different shows. As a British Columbian, I get a kick out of recognizing Vancouver (and other places in the province) when they show up in film and television. This tour gave me a much better appreciation of how much work is actually being done in the city.

The tour length was perfect - about 3 hours in total with stops spaced out well and a good variety of movies and films included. Austin was entertaining and very knowledgeable and kept the pace moving along while also spending time to answer questions in depth. As a local actor, he's got lots of experience to share.

I definitely recommend this tour for both locals and visitors - it's a great way to spend a couple of hours and see Vancouver through the lens of your favourite movies and television shows.
a MUST DO walking tour in Vancouver

This is a fantastic three hour walking tour in Vancouver. Our guide Daley was very knowledgeable about the Film & TV making industry in Vancouver. On an iPad, we watched footage of movies & shows that had been filmed outside of numerous buildings and on many street locations. We even got to do a “take” of a Reese Witherspoon movie outside of the Vancouver Public Library. I highly recommend this walking tour and a bonus is that you visit other tourist destinations like Chinatown and Gastown on the way too. *****
Unexpected !

A Surprising day in Hollywood North

Tour guide was great & knowledgeable. Not aware it was a walking tour until we got there. I thought we would be riding a van. We're senior citizens but we survived. I think the area around Hastings should be avoided with the homeless tents. My husband had a jug of liquid detergent land in front of him & almost hit his head from a 3rd floor window, too, in that area. He really could have gotten hurt. Overall, we did enjoy the tour, thanks to Rajat, who was also flexible with the schedule & would let us rest in between.
