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.

Not only do you get to eat some great food and try great local beer and wine in some excellent establishments but you also get to learn a whole lot about the history of Vancouver. Tour guide Brent was excellent with his knowledge of the food, and history he also explained everything so well and is an excellent story teller. Highly recommended!! Word of warning don’t eat before this tour and if your planning dinner after it plan it to be a later dinner. I was full as a boot by the end!

Delicious, Fun and All the Best Foods!

How do you satisfy parents and teens? Sign up for this fun food tour! Our guide Liam was fun and pleasant as he took us to 9 different eateries all within a 10 minute walk of the starting point. Food and drink was varied. We all wished we had done it on our first night in Vancouver so that we could return to several of the restaurants. We especially liked the Bao sandwiches. Learning about the local history was an added bonus. The food was plentiful and varied. There was no part of the tour we did not like!
