      The best Vancouver night tours & experiences with locals

      Vancouver is as pretty as a city has any right to be. By day, Canada’s scenic gem is a cultural hub and epicenter for the arts, framed by flawless sea and mountains. But at night, when daylight is replaced by twinkling city lights, Vancouver transforms into a playground. On night tours in Vancouver with City Unscripted, the city’s electrifying after-dark entertainment is yours to discover. Anyone with a guidebook can get sucked into the tourist traps, but with a knowledgeable Vancouverite leading the way, you’ll uncover the hotspots and hidden gems of the Vancouver nightlife scene most travelers wouldn’t know existed. Are you ready for a night you’ll never forget?

      The party scene in Vancouver can compete with the best in the world, and there’s no lack of speaker-shaking nightlife, crowded dancefloors and buzzing bars. If you love nightlife in its purest sense, this is the place to be – but night tours in Vancouver don’t just cater for party people. Vancouver has a long list of after-dark entertainment options that are equally exciting. With a seemingly endless supply of comedy clubs, late-night bowling alleys, burlesque shows, theater performances, museum nights and shopping opportunities, Vancouver nightlife is as vast and varied as it gets.

      Depending on the neighborhood you end up in on night tours in Vancouver, the Vancouver nightlife scene can be as relaxed or raucous as you want it to be. There’s neon-lit Granville Street, an entertainment district lined with pubs, clubs and live music venues. Then there’s upmarket Yaletown with its sleek cocktail lounges and super-trendy hangouts. If it’s a laid-back night of drinking and dining you’re after, historic Gastown is the place to be, while beachside Kitsilano is packed with locals-only pubs and neighborhood restaurants. Where will night tours in Vancouver take you?

        Gabriel was a wonderful tour guide full of knowledge about Montreal's architecture and history (as well as some great places to grab a bite to eat!). He really listened to my interests and put together an itinerary that suited me well! We explored rare Isaac Newton books and science history at McGill University, stopped at a cafe afterward for coffee and snack, walked through beautiful neighborhoods, and wandered to Place des Arts and Old Port for sightseeing, where he recommended some great food. Gabriel is the best, and so was this tour!

        My husband and I had an awesome full day experience with May. She was very knowledgeable and personable. Our tour was totally customized to meet our interests and adding and excluding based on our requests. We walked, talked, ate, learned the history of the city, the buildings, shopped, rested, and walked some more. We were thrilled with the 18,000 steps journey through the old town, waterfront, underground, China town, university area and locals shopping district.

        On Sept 6, May Wong met us as planned at our hotel for a full day tour of Montreal. We were off at a good pace with use of the metro, city bus, and of course, our legs. She made our first trip to Montreal an absolute memorable one that you must do too. Please request May and your time together will be a real treat!!! Thank you May!
