Frequently asked questions
A member of Forbidden Vancouver Walking Tours staff will respond within 24 hours. Our tours happen rain or shine! Vancouver can be a little wet at times. In our experience a rain proof jacket with a hood is the most effective clothing to bring. Umbrellas can get a bit awkward if everyone in the audience has one. Also, we have crafted tour routes that have scenes under cover wherever possible — using roofs, archways, awnings or even indoors.
