Please note: the itinerary is subject to change, based on the locations' availability and weather. Our tour is different from all the food tours you may have done around the world. Our aim is to make the experience as authentic as possible, so you eat like a native Vancouverer. In Vancouver, it's not uncommon to eat on the run, but we are fortunate to be able to sit and enjoy most of what you will sample on the tour. Your professional guide will share with you a wealth of information, not only about the fare you will enjoy, but also about each venue and the secret history of this iconic Vancouver neighbourhood.
WHY The Gastown?
Gastown is one of the most stylish neighbourhoods in the world and the first settlement of Vancouver. Its cute, European style streets make you feel like you are in a different country. Best yet, the trendy shops, bars, nightclubs and restaurants bring a unique culture to the area that can entertain anybody. Learn about the first original settlement of Vancouver and how it almost didn't survive to tell the tale on multiple occasions. Discover its rough and rocky past and how it has turned the corner to become a hip and trendy area with many attractions for both locals and tourists. Come see this area for yourself and enjoy some of the delicacies that Vancouver is so well known for. Vancouver's large Asian population and proximity to the ocean, has resulted in it being home to the most authentic and freshest sushi in North America.
