Description:

Vancouver Foodie Tours offers food tasting and cultural walking tours,...

Vancouver Foodie Tours offers food tasting and cultural walking tours, introducing locals and visitors to one-of-a-kind dishes that define Vancouver's culinary scene. You will indulge in a feast for their eyes, belly and mind, tasting signature dishes at award-winning Vancouver gourmet restaurants, food shops and food trucks. Learn about the origin of ingredients, how dishes are prepared, as well as the history, culture and architecture of Vancouver. This is the best way to see and taste Vancouver!

We offer four delectable Foodie Tours:

GASTRONOMIC GASTOWN TOUR - Discover Gastown's best eating and drinking establishments. Savour gastronomic delights and learn about the neighbourhood's storied past. Experience some of Vancouver's hottest restaurants that local foodies adore.

 

GRANVILLE ISLAND MARKET TOUR - This tour showcases a cornucopia of fine foods from independent farmers and food artisans throughout Vancouver. Touring the Granville Island Public Market will be one of the most authentic ways to experience Vancouver - after all, what better way to feel the pulse of a city than to immerse yourself in the action?

WORLD'S BEST FOOD TRUCK TOUR - This tour takes you on a two-hour tasting tour of Vancouver's multicultural curbside kitchens while learning about the tricky business of operating gourmet food trucks in Vancouver.

GUILTY PLEASURES GOURMET TOUR - Showcasing over five of downtown Vancouver's award-winning restaurants and food shops, you will sample gourmet food paired with optional wines and beer, meet award-winning food artisans and learn about Vancouver's food culture, history and architecture.

WHAT TO KNOW - The World's Best Food Truck Tour and Granville Island Market Tour are proud members of the CTC's Canadian Signature Experience program. Our tours are two to three hours in duration and provides sufficient food such that a meal afterwards is not necessary.

Did the Gastown foodie with Tracy, she is funny and very informative. I was a solo female and made to feel welcome and comfortable. The food we tried was amazing, I would recommend the wine/beer pairing. Also do this tour early on your visit, so you'll know the places you'd like to return to.... you WILL want to return. Enjoy!!!

We did the Granville Island tour recently and our guide was Jennie. I was hesitant on booking the tour as I have walked around Granville Island several times before so I felt that a tour would be of little benefit to me.

Staying in Gastown

Neighbourhood Profile
Gastown
A visit to Gastown is like turning back the clock and stepping into a bygone era. With the distinction of being Vancouver's oldest neighborhood, the many plaques that stud the cobbled streets of Gastown tell the story of its colorful past, giving Vancouver's history a more lively presence here than anywhere else. Having been originally founded around a popular worker's saloon, it's no wonder that today some of Vancouver's best micro-breweries, creative cocktail joints, and corner bars can be found in this area. Classical charm suffuses its many vintage boutiques and the brick-built structures that an army of creative professionals call home.
