Brenda was really fun and informative. It was like walking around town with a best friend. We especially enjoyed the tacos at Maiiz and the chocolate from Pure Lovin. La Roux had excellent macarons. We would recommend this tour to anyone visiting Victoria. The tour was a small group of max 10 people.

Excellent tour of Chinatown foods, a variety of ethnic foods. Brenda, guide, was very knowledgeable about everything Victoria and Chinatown. We would definitely recommend this tour and request Brenda.

Terrific tour, full of fun history and delicious food. She showed us places we would never have found on our own.

The best way to know a little bit of the city, culture and food! Super highly recommended
