This is an excellent tour not only for the food and drinks but also for the historic stories of Gastown and Vancouver. Our guide, Jason, did a superb job providing information about what we were consuming and keeping us engaged in the history. We stopped at 7 or 8 establishments each offering something unique to enjoy. I highly recommend this tour!

Our guide was great, very personable and knowledgeable. We had a great time with him. We can't remember his name but we did the 3:00 tour on July 9th. The food was very good, a great variety. It starts with Beer tasting and that bloats, so be warned for the rest of the tour. We were definitely full by the end. We did learn some interesting facts and information about the area.

Sean was an excellent guide. The tour took a little bit longer than expected due to a few people having trouble finding the starting location. Sean took his time to make sure that they could locate the group and started the tour. He was informative and made sure he interacted with everyone in the group. If you’re in Vancouver, I highly recommend that you book this tour.
