We had a big group participating Vancouver Mysteries for a staff team-building day. Organizing the activity was quite straightforward and participants had fun competing to solve the mysteries. Definitely a good option for a team-building activity that gets you out of the office and moving around!

A great way to spend an afternoon together celebrating a birthday! Very organized materials and an awesome guide!! She stayed in character the whole time and made it an exciting event for us. The clues were the perfect challenge level ... some clear and others that took more effort! This would be a great activity to enhance team building skills.... More

This was our second time playing a game with Vancouver Mysteries - they are consistently awesome! Well organized, good fun, some exercise, and I nice way to see the city. Be sure to bring your cell phone if you play as having the flashlight option on it is helpful and you also need it to take pictures of your team... More

Myself and two friends had a fantastic time playing the Heroes and Villains game against other teams. I was especially impressed with the set-up, props (including a comic book telling the story of the Muck Monster we were trying to defeat) and the detail with which the game was organised. You can play the game individually or against other teams... More

Staying in Downtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown
Vancouver's business district, the Downtown area is bustling with smartly-dressed folks balancing their lattes and briefcases to and from work. The area's plethora of contemporary commercial, residential, and corporate spaces has bred a landscape of nouveau restaurants, chain cafes, and upmarket shopping options. However, located right on the waterfront of Vancouver's energetic Harbour, Downtown is a also popular public meeting spot, with a massive public library and convention center attracting a bevy of visitors both local and not, as well as a hotspot for the arts, being home to some of Vancouver's most cutting-edge galleries. With behemoth architecture and a professional air, Downtown means business.
