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

What a fun afternoon we had touring around the area know as Gastown in Vancouver, British Columbia. We have been to Vancouver many times, but don't usually play "tourist." This time we did and signed up for a walking tour with a focus on food served up in Vancouver. While I would say the tour was "fit for foodies" as... More

Half of the food was not much more than the free samples you get at places normally. The rest of the food was quite ordinary - chicken tortellini, fish 'n chips, mac 'n cheese (with a bit of lobster). Three stops were for beer tasters and for the 3 of us who didn't drink alcohol, we got served water. Really?... More

Riley was an informative tour guide. We went back to visit 2 of the tour stops for dinner one day and lunch another. My only complaint - we went back specifically for one of the dishes we had sampled on the tour, but they were out - the only servings left they had reserved for the food tour coming in... More

Really enjoyed the Little Italy tour. Loved meeting the owners and hearing about the history of the area. The food was great too. Generous portions of everything.

We enjoyed our Gastown food tour with Riley. He was knowledgeable about the history and we enjoyed the interesting stories and background information he provided. The food was good and even though the portions were small, we felt we had enough to eat. An enjoyable afternoon!

This tour is the only way to visit little Italy on commercial. You get history, meet owners and TASTE great food & drinks. You just wouldn't get this experience just walking around. I am so glad I did this, I know I will be back to all those establishments.
