A Wok Around Chinatown: Culinary and Cultural Walking Tour
From $83.43

Let an off-duty chef navigate for you on this food and walking tour of Vancouver’s Chinatown. After a leisurely stroll through the iconic Dr. Sun Yat Sen Classical Chinese Garden, head into the heart of Chinatown to sample a variety of traditional foods. The tour allows you to avoid the hassle of making reservations and scouting out the area’s best eateries on your own.

What to Expect

Start the morning at the Dr. Sun Yat Sen Classical Chinese Garden. As you stroll through the gardens, your guide provides an overview of Chinese culture in Vancouver and points out landmarks you may not have recognized had you come on your own.

The sheer number of restaurants in Chinatown can be overwhelming, so let you guide choose for you. Visit hidden gems and establishments loved by locals where you sample a variety of traditional foods and treats.

Cap the tour with a sit-down meal of piping hot dim sum. A small group size of 10 people or fewer ensures an personal experience and the full attention of your guide. The tour ends with plenty of time left in the day to explore on your own.
