We live in Vancouver and booked this tour as a birthday gift for my husband. From the first moments of the tour we loved the experience - and were blown away by a birthday candle on the cannoli at the end of the tour.

We took the Gastown Food Tour with Heather and thoroughly enjoyed our day! She was engaging and gave us a good overview of some Gastown history. We all enjoyed the venues and it was a great way to discover new places to eat in Gastown. All in all, it was a really fun day! Thanks Heather!

We hadn't explored the Gastown district in Vancouver so we decided to take a walking food tour. Our guide, Brent was exceptional. Our group met at the train station. One woman in our group was catching her plane after the tour so she had her carry on luggage with her. Brent was able to store her luggage at one of... More

About 12 of us gathered for a walking food tour of LOLO - Lower Lonsdale. Having lived on the North Shore for 25 years, I was surprised at how much this area has changed – such a vibrant neighbourhood with so many new restaurants to try! Some of the things we tried were pizza, soup, smoked salmon, wine, deep fried... More

The experience was interesting and fun for both my Irish in-laws, who are here visiting, and my husband and I, who have been living in Vancouver for a few years now. Though the tour is a bit...

Heather was our very energetic tour guide, and she had our names memorized from the moment we were introduced. She was a wealth of fun information and history stories from Vancouver's early start in the Gastown area. The restaurants, bars, and stores we visited were friendly, tasty, and interesting. Make sure you come with an appetite and a bunch of... More

I booked online and paid fully for the Gastown Walking Food Tour that was meant to happen this afternoon at 2pm. I arrived at the Starbucks inside the Waterfront Station at least 25 minutes prior to the time shown on the voucher. 2pm came and gone.

Staying in Gastown

Neighborhood Profile
Gastown
A visit to Gastown is like turning back the clock and stepping into a bygone era. With the distinction of being Vancouver's oldest neighborhood, the many plaques that stud the cobbled streets of Gastown tell the story of its colorful past, giving Vancouver's history a more lively presence here than anywhere else. Having been originally founded around a popular worker's saloon, it's no wonder that today some of Vancouver's best micro-breweries, creative cocktail joints, and corner bars can be found in this area. Classical charm suffuses its many vintage boutiques and the brick-built structures that an army of creative professionals call home.
