We took this tour on Saturday and had a great time and left FULL! Our tour guide, Jewel, was fantastic! All the store/restaurant owners knew her and greeted her with smiles and hugs. It was interesting to learn the history of Commercial Drive. It was nice to hear about restaurants that had been in the same family for 30+ years.... More

My wife and I had a great afternoon out on Commercial Drive. The food (and drinks) were great and at each stop we met with the owners and got a chance to hear about the history of the neighborhood. Our guide Jewel was very friendly and seemed to know everybody personally! Never had to wait for our food and we... More

The reason my title suggests putting the food aside and focusing on the tour details is because the food is merely average, and there is no real theme or connection to the establishments that are included. That point is no clearer than the first stop; Starbucks. So yes, I was a bit disappointed in the food selection and quality but... More

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
