This is something you should do in Vancouver, especially if it is the first time you have been there or are only there for a limited time. The food is great and the guide is brilliant sharing what they know of the area, the history and the food. There is also a good mix of food and stories so that... More

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. I tried phoning the company on the number advertised but no one picked up.... More

Not only was the food the best of Vancouver, not one single place we ate I wouldn't go back to, but Heather, with her energy was amazing. From the tid bits and pieces of history around the city she really made you fee like you were eating, not just a piece of food but a piece of Vancouver lure. You... More

Toured last week with the energetic and knowledgeable Heather. A little something for everyone and an easy stroll. I went by myself but felt I had instant friends!

Just returned from the tour this afternoon. Heather was fun, engaging, knew her history and got us into some great food spots. I'd definitely recommend this one.

Along the way she paused and gave us some Gastown and Vancouver history, enhancing the overly sxperience. We sampled beer, tortellini, fish & chips, pulled pork, bao sandwiches, organic ice cream, maple syrup, cheesecake, and chocolate. Obviously... More

We did the Gastown food tour for my friend's bachelorette party. Although it was a soggy day, that didn't slow us down! Brent was our tour guide and did an amazing job. We are all locals, but Brent provided some really interesting history on Gastown that none of us knew. We finished more knowledgeable about our own city and with... More

A great way to spend an afternoon finding hidden gems and enjoying a part of our own city - spots we had walked right by and history we 'sort of' knew about. 5 of us who live in and around Vancouver joined our guide, Heather, a couple visiting from Seattle, sisters from Montreal and a friend from Toronto to wander...

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.
