My husband and I, along with a couple friends, played tourists in our own town and did the Gastown Tasting Tour. We had a blast. We visited four different restaurants - 2 of which we've been too before, and 2 of which were new to us, so it was great to try something new. There was plenty of food and... More

We booked the Gastown Tasting Tour as a Team Building Event for our group. Everyone had a really fun time. Not only were the appies and beverages tasty - it was great trying new cuisines and learning about the various restaurants in the city. The fun facts throughout the tour were very interesting, learning something new with every turn -... More

Carlos really brought his A-game! He was warm, friendly and knew so much about the Vancouver food-scene. He enthusiastically gave us a true locals vantage point with his expertise. We can't wait to return to Vancouver and experience another food tour!

We did a Gastown Tasting Tour & thoroughly enjoyed it. We had taken other tours in different cities, but this one was by far the best. We really liked that fact that there were only 2 couples on the tour so you could get to know one another. Our guide, Dominique, was so fun & interesting! She introduced us to... More

Thank you Kendall for a great tour of some of the best food and drinks Gastown has to offer. We had dinner with some very nice, likeminded people from around the world. We benefited from the VFT's inside knowledge and visited restaurants we would not have found on our own. Above all it was great fun and we would all... More

What deliciousness Gastown had to offer! I knew this theoretically, having grown up in Vancouver, but to have such well thought out pairings of food and drink, along with restaurants that I was meaning to try but never did... it was an amazing evening! I learned so much about pairings and what amazing local food gets produced. The tour guide... More

This food/drinks tour was so much fun and I would recommend it to anyone. The restaurants that were selected were really good and we returned to some at a later date. The beer and wine tasting was also informative and I learned about beer and wine making and why they pair well with certain food. Kendall, the tour guide, was... More

We had an awesome night with Carlos on our Gastown Food Tour. Whenever we travel we love to visit good restaurants and search for the best food in the area. This tour introduced us to delicious food and drinks(with plenty to fill us up for dinner, and get a good buzz going if you want) and a great experience around... More

My Vancouver-based friend and I did one of the first Modern Chinatown Tasting tours offered. We were the only two on the tour and paid a $20 premium each (I negotiated the premium down from $30) and it was well worth it. The owner, Carlos, was delightful and the four restaurants were so different - it was interesting to see... More

We recently returned from a trip to Vancouver, and took part in the Gastown Craft Beer n’ Bites tour with Vancouver Food Tours while we were there. I ended up booking a tour for a group of four people, and nobody else booked on that date so it was like a private tour. We were taken to three different locations... More
