We were in Vancouver recently on a little holiday break and I came across this whole concept of food tours - we did the Little Italy tour up on Commercial Drive in Vancouver. We had a great guide, she told us all about the area and she knew every single person up on that drive, their families, the history of... More

I went on the little Italy tour this spring with my sisters - it was SUPERB. We ate so much delicious food & were waited on hand & foot by the owners of each establishment. One of the owners took us on the tour (Jewel? Sorry - memory isn't great) and she was truly the hostess with the mostess! Yesterday,... More

We were surprised and slightly embarrassed at the lack of value this tour offered. Being from Vancouver and hoping that visitors here get the best experience for their money, we were quite disappointed by the Gastown "Food" Tour and would recommend tourists explore the area on their own. We questioned many of the choices of restaurants (aka.. pubs!) on the... More

This is an excellent way to spend an afternoon. Our tour guide Jewel, was fun, the places we visited along Commercial Drive were varied and interesting and the food was delicious. Well worth the price to learn about "Little Italy". Do NOT eat before going.

Our family recently took this food tour and were not disappointed--it was a highlight of our trip to Vancouver! Jewel was very personable and the various places we visited were welcoming. The food was the best ever and puts American Italian chain restaurants to shame. You need to come hungry as the food portions were large. Little Italy is outside... More

This food tour through Taste Vancouver Food Tours was such a fun experience. My family of three did it with another family and an additional 10 other guests. It was one of the larger groups our tour guide has ever had and she managed it beautifully. We gained some Gastown history and specific history of the buildings and establishments we... More

We recently participated in the Little Italy food tour with Jewel and had a great time. The restaurants, etc. we visited were all very excellent and, even though we live in the neighborhood, we loved that we learned a lot about the Italian history in Vancouver that we didn't know before (Frankie told us about his experience growing up on...

My husband and I joined the Little Italy Tour. We spent a fun afternoon visiting a wide variety of local delis, markets, restaurants and coffee shops. Our tour guide was warm and informative, and knows the people at each stop. The food was fabulous. Definitely come hungry! We met nice fellow tour members from all over N. America. I highly... More

The tour did what it said it would. Nice walk through Gasstown and good small bites of food. My partner doesn't like seafood but he tried the food anyway and enjoyed most of it. We had a very good tour guide.
