Speaking as a native Vancouverite, pretty impressed! Took me to some lovely old standby landmarks, but also took me to a fantastic view from a corner of the courthouse I didn't even know was there! Very good puzzles, some particularly fiendish--didn't expect to have to look underwater for a clue! Sole complaint: the correct answer at Orpheum is too strictly defined.
