The Granville Island Market Tour includes 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? The World's Best Food Truck Tour takes visitors on a two-hour tasting tour of Vancouver's multicultural curbside cuisine while learning about the tricky business of operating gourmet food trucks in Vancouver. The Guilty Pleasures Gourmet Tour showcases over five of downtown Vancouver's award-winning restaurants and food shops. Guests sample gourmet food paired with optional wines and beer, meet award-winning food artisans and learn about Vancouver's food culture and architecture. 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. « less

My partner and I really enjoyed this tour. When visiting Vancouver, the Granville Market is not to be missed . And I am hard pressed to think of a better way to sample its many culinary delights. In other words, be prepared to taste some really delicious food - from an egg and mushroom benedict to bread to coffee to... More

On the Gourmet tour you have the option have having wine paring with your tastings. To start the tour I went for a tasting at Kirin Restaurant. Kirin is an Award Winner of Vancouver’s Best Sum for 6 consecutive years. All the food is made fresh. I sampled a Suimia dumpling and sticky rice. The dumpling had prawn and pork... More

We had a most amazing adventure, taking part in Guilty Pleasures Gourmet Tour at Vancouver Foodie Tours. This tour was guided by Nadia, who is a lovely, knowledgeable, enthusiastic person, passionate about food and warm in her approach. My daugther and I just loved it: Gourmet food at the best restaurants, with information shared in a most enjoyable way. Thanks... More

I highly recommend the Granville market tour. We were kept well informed by our guide Manuela and enjoyed the best fare the market has to offer! A definite highlight was Lee's doughnuts which I will definitely head back to try.

My family (myself, my wife, our 14 and 12-year-old sons, and my brother) had a terrific experience today on the downtown tour. Our guide, Manuela, was delightful, energetic, informative, and entertaining. The food, ranging from Dim Sum to sushi to gelato, was all yummy. Plus, Manuela was very good about recommending other places to try throughout the city. I highly... More

We received our tour for Christmas from our daughter and we're glad we did. We couldn't believe that two hours had gone by so quickly as we did a lot and it was expertly led by Lisa. Not only did we get a great sampling of food but we met some very nice visitors and one couple like ourselves who... More

Wes was our tour leader and after introducing everyone the 10 of us started on a tour of the Public Market. We stopped at 10 locations and sampled the specialty of the house in each spot. We had cheese, sausage, fish cakes, donuts, breads, coffee and candies, ice tea and chocolate. Trip was about 2 hours and we made new... More

Went on this last week with the lovely michela. She was super fun and a joy to be around. Got to sample 5 different food trucks, stuffed by the end of it. Great way to taste stuff you'd normally just pass on the street. Moms grilled cheese was amazing with gorgeous lemonade! Defo recommend it to my friends!

On our recent visit to Vancouver we decided to take the World's Best Food Truck Tour and it was a decision that we're glad we made. We had seen the trucks on previous visits but never tried them. Boy that has changed. We can't wait to have a chance to have their food again. The tour was very well organized... More

We went on this food truck tour in downtown Vancouver which lasted 2 hours. Really enjoyable experience and our tour guide Andrew really looked after our group bringing us samples from the various trucks. He also explained the relatively recent history of this in Vancouver with very serious competition and judging to get a food truck slot.
