Very interesting history of Gas town. It was done with aplomb with most of it from archives and some imagination. We had a wonderful time as a family of three.

Great for exploring Vancouver in 2 days. There is a second provider where the buses are not as full, but I don't know if it is as good.

I had a great time. Our guide, Landon, was super friendly and gave us great tips.
