Really liked the tour of the area. We got a history lesson of the area, got to taste some amazing food and they accommodated the fact that I do not eat meat. My family loved the food and we stayed in the area to shopped and walk around. Would recommend.

Our tour guide was the best. Super knowledgeable, friendly and just awesome. The tour took us through some excellent Gastown spots. Brioche was amazing and will definitely go back for dinner or lunch (handmade pasta, yum)!!

Our tour was led by Sam, who did a fantastic job of sharing the history of Gastown with us. We only had one day to spend in Vancouver and this was definitely a great way to spend a portion of our time. The food and beer and tea was all delicious and served quickly and efficiently by friendly servers.

I took a load of high school students on the Gastown Food Tour through Taste Vancouver Food Tours. We had a wonderful time full of exciting food and interesting facts about the area. The students and I were thoroughly impressed and would definitely do this again. The staff were very accommodating for special dietary needs and time restrictions and the... More

My sisters and I recently took in the tour of Commercial Drive (Little Italy) and we amazed at the quality and variety offered within a couple of blocks. The food was excellent, the tour guide was fun and informative and our hosts all very gracious and entertaining. We were the only tourists on the tour, the rest were actually from... More

Really enjoyed the food, the other "tourists"and our guide, Jewel. Learned about history of Commercial Drive, met owners of the businesses, and may never eat a frozen pizza again - they made amazing ones on our tour. Great experience! Will do the Gastown one next.

The bill found us but the tour never did. Waited for the tour that never came. Booked over a week in advance and never received anything other than the bill. We're veterans of many food tours and never experienced anything like this. Use the other company.

The tour was just what I had imagined with probably even more history than expected. Nice variation of stops and food. It was a good way to learn about Gastown and a different approach from the hop-on/hop-off excursion we had enjoyed in Stanley Park the day before. I would suggest this tour to anyone new to Vancouver who is looking... More

I went on both the Little Italy and Gastown tours. I may live in Vancouver but I had not been to many of the stops the tours went to. It was really great to sample taste many of local hot spots I have always heard about but just never go to. The tour guides were very informative as they spoke... More

We had such a great time touring Commerical Drive with Vancouver Food Tours. Had no idea we had so much charm / history just within a few blocks! The neatest part was having owners (or their kids, who've grown up in the family business) tell us about their food / place. Flavor on every level. And Jewel is an amazing... More
