Food tour was no bore!

Absolutely amazing tour. One of my highlights of my visit to Vancouver, so much so that from here on out on vacations, I will consider food tours. In this tour you have the option of keeping to yourself, or joining the group. The option of getting booze with your food, or just keeping it straight food. The walking bit was not hard at all, and it was even raining during our tour.

This was a lot of fun! Very informative, loved hearing parts of history. The savoury food was really good and portion size (sample) was good. I was very disappointed with the sweet samples. I don’t have a sweet tooth but the sample size was pathetic. Tia was so fun and an awesome guide!
Despite the rain!

It was pouring down rain but we still enjoyed the tour. Ana was exceptional, pointed out all the important sites and enjoyed the great food. Would recommend to anyone visiting Vancouver.
Fun in Gastown

We had a party of 4 & were very impressed with the whole experience. We enjoyed Liam our tour guide. He was very informative & funny. Very personable. We throughly enjoyed all the offerings of the tour. We would go back to several eateries if we get back to Vancouver
A Great Way to See the Town!

My sister and I were only in Vancouver for a few days. This tour had plenty of stops and a very diverse selection of food. Along the way our amazing guide, Sean, gave us many historical facts about the locations we were walking by. Definitely worth the money.

Great tour

The food was really good and I was full at the end of it. The fried chicken, fish and chips, and the soft serve ice cream were my favorite. Liam was the tour guide and he was great!
Nice tour but not worth the cost

I enjoyed a nice walk around Gas Town with my fellow tour members, but the tastes were the equivalent of samples at the market. The alcohol tastings were a beer in a 2 oz pour and two sips of wine to go with the charcuterie tasting. I mainly came for the food and hadn't eaten all day in anticipation of my 1 pm tour. I left still hungry at an odd time of day. I did not find any of the food as good as my other meals in Vancouver that warranted a return for a full portion.
Great way to explore Gastown

I'm a non-dairy vegetarian and while I couldn't eat at all the locations (namely the 3 dessert stops) the rest of the restaurants were great about accommodating me. There was one off-the-beaten-path stop in particular that I never would have found without this tour that made the whole thing worth it for me. The only somewhat negative I have about it was it felt a bit rushed. But then again, if we had lingered longer, maybe that would have felt awkward? In either case, it was a great way to explore Gastown!
