Super informative and although it’s 2 hours walking, its an easy walk at a leisurely pace. When you only have a day or two in a city a tour is always a great way to pack in the highlights. Too often I’ve gone on a...More

I did both the market tour and the 101 tour. Shaun our guide was great. He really knew his stuff and entertained us with stories, jokes and sites. The pace was good and gave lots of ideas of things to come back to. Highly recommended.

It's a really easy place to find, pretty much everyone knows it. Just got to the totem poles. And the uber driver will know where it is. BTW it's next to a great restaurant that has a fabulous late night happy hour!
