Attraction details
Recommended length of visit: 2-3 hours
Owner description: I host 2 and a half to 3 hour guided history walks in four of Vancouver's historic neighbourhoods: the East End/Strathcona, the West End, Grandview, and Mount Pleasant. Most of the stories shared on my tours come from my work as a house history researcher. I have researched the history of 900 Vancouver homes and share their stories and my passion for Vancouver history on my tours and in a popular blog called "When An Old House Whispers". The dates and times and rendezvous information for my regularly scheduled history walks can be found at historywalksinvancouver blog. Private walking tours in English, Japanese or Italian can be arranged for groups of five or more depending on my availability.

“Live the History”
Reviewed 21 June 2013

I went on a tour of the Strathcona district so that I could learn more about the city I live in. James made the history of the area come alive. It didn't feel like I was walking the streets of 21st century Vancouver but rather I was immersed in the past. It was an unforgettable experience.
