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 three delectable Foodie Tours: 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.

Organized as part of a work function, this was a fun outing with a small group. Although advertised as having 20 tastings, we only visited 9 shops - not sure if this was intended when the group organizer arranged things, etc. - although we did take the 2 hours to do our 9 tastings, despite the brochure saying there'd be...

Went on a food adventure tour around the Granville Island Public Market guided by the very knowledgeable Nadia. If you want to find the hidden gems in the market this is a must do experience. Everything is yummy from the coffee to the charcuterie to the melt in your mouth donuts. Definitely worth every minute of it and recommend it... More

As a part of me and my wife's anniversary celebration, we decided to try out the Guilty Pleasures Gourmet Tour. Our host Andrew was awesome; he was fun, upbeat and his passion for food was evident in the way he talked. We had stops at Kirin, Urban Fare, Market by Jean Georges, Hubbub Sandwiches and Bella Gellateria and we enjoyed... More

Dynamic and personable, she was great at making us all feel comfortable and engaged in every element of the tour - much of which... More

We took the Granville Island Food Tour with Manuela back in November and it was awesome! The tour was a small group of 8 people, 6 of whom lived in Vancouver! Manuela showed us all of the specialty items in Granville Market and we tasted everything too. Being from out of town, she gave my husband and I tips on... More

Not only were we given information about the food we tasted, Manuela even gave us a taste of the history of downtown Vancouver. The tour size was just right because it gave... More

What a great way to spend an afternoon. We went on the gourmet food tour with our amazing guide Manuela. She was very knowledgeable and entertaining! Although we live locally we had never tried these fabulous restaurants before...and would definetly go back. The variety and quality of the tastings were superb and look forward to trying their other food tours!

Reviews on Trip Advisor were accurate. Food tour was excellent for a Foodie and non Foodie alike. Selection of vendors was excellent. Order of food tour was superb. It is obvious that the tour order was chosen by an expert Foodie. Our tour guide Nadia was passionate, engaging, and involved all in our group. Her knowledge of such a variety... More
