I went on the one they had in 2008. Was a nice time though we didn't get to get out to explore too much. I remember stopping in Stevenson, Burnaby Mountain and maybe a couple other places.

Two years later I was back for a different con and a group of us rented a car, found a map online and did our own location tour. We saw Jack's cabin, Sam's house and tons of other places that were too cool to describe.

Next year I'll be going with a first-timer and we may have to do this tour. She's never seen Vancouver nor any Stargate-related sites. She's really going to get a kick out of it. Can't wait to see her expression. :)

... I was actually thinking about going with the bus, bhut since I don't know which places they'll show us I'm a bit uncertain... I really really want to see Jack's cabin *sighs*

So @Brenda sorry to bother you, I didn't understand, will you go with the organized bus tour or you gonna rent a car? In case you rent it and do your own tour would there be the possibility for me to join you and your friend (I'm a first time too) and the gas costs etc?

Is anyone interest in doing 'our own' tour? It would be reaaaaaaly fun!

I don't see it being a problem. Not hard to get a temporary Canadian drivers license and renting the mini van we had that day worked out to be about $20-25 each (there was 7 of us that day) if I remember correctly. It really depends though on my friend and what she wants to do and how much the bus tour works out to be.

I've heard there is a Plan A and a Plan B per Richard as to when bookings for the tour will take place. 

Plan A: Main event ticket with add-ons
Plan B: Main event ticket without add-ons; Sale of add-ons will begin at a later date

If the tickets for the bus tour go on sale during the main event sale we may just wait. Getting the money together for the event may be enough for now. Will let you know!

Here's a pic of when we visited Jack's cabin.

We are leaning towards Plan B right now...add ons come later. Otherwise poeple are going to spend so long adding things and choosing meals etc that they risk missing the ticket by the time they complete checkout.

Yeah you're right :D This way is gonna be easier for everyone  ;D

So I'll save my question about the bus tour for when the ticket will actually go on sale =)

Never thought about the time constraints when adding all the extra add-ons before check out.

Thanks for going with the second option! :D

I think this would be the best way to go to help with everyone's money situation.

I love that Gatecon is thinking of all the different types of funding availability for attendees! Not everyone can put things on credit cards or just pay it right away! This is much appreciated! Can't wait for the tour though!

Hi,
how much will this tour be?
Did I overlook it?
Or is it too early to say?
How about an estimate?

Thanks

No better way than to tour locations with others that will fully understand your "oh oh oh it's it's the place!!" and "I'm actually OMG here OMG" with all the hyperventilation, squees, and questions from others of "will you take me picture!"

I'm freakin out!!

Hahaha.... SO TRUE. I went on a tour like this at Warner Brothers Studios with 20+ or so fans before a taping of The Big Bang Theory and we all lost our minds. HILLARIOUS. Can't think of a better way to see it all!!!

I remember going there. Then we walked to Horizons and had lunch.  8)
