I think your experience might depend on whom is your guide.

Perhaps if the information about the tour told you WHERE to find the guide and if the guide were wearing or holding a sign that identified them. It was a great experience and I will be coming back to take other tours.

The tour guide will be waiting for you outside the Tourism building and down the first flight of stairs. The guide will have the logo AIBC on their shirt, but no identifying sign.

WE missed the first tour either because it was cancelled or the tour guide was not easily visible. HIGHLY recommend a sandwich board or some other means of identifying where to gather as it was a fluke we found the guide the second time. And during the tour, a woman came up and asked if tis was the AIBC tour as she had been waiting downtown to meet but had not found it. Otherwise, the tour itself is fine.

From Our Editors

Iconic buildings rise up on either side of tour groups as they trail guides who regale them with stories and historical insights. Traversing a total of 9 Victoria and Vancouver neighbourhoods, the Architectural Institute of British Columbia’s walking tours illuminate pivotal and noteworthy structures throughout the city. In Victoria, explorers can ramble through Chinatown—the oldest Chinatown in the nation—or feel the waterfront breeze while taking in the splendor of the Parliament buildings. Alternatively, Vancouver walkers can embed themselves in the city’s first neighbourhood, Strathcona, or investigate industrial expansion by roaming Yaletown.

The AIBC, established in 1920, is a self-governing body dedicated to excellence in the profession of architecture for the benefit of the public, its membership and the environment.
