My daughter and I thoroughly enjoyed this tour of downtown Victoria historic areas and eateries. Andy provided information and stories that I hadn’t previously heard, and he was an excellent, animated and thoughtful host. We both enjoyed the variety, quality and quantity of the tastings on the tour, and highly recommend it to other locals and their visitors.

Andy was a great guide. We learned a lot about the downtown Victoria food scene as well as some of the local architecture and history. Andy was full of enthusiasm and gave us lots of information about each restaurant and the specific history of how it came to be. We really enjoyed the food and even went back for seconds to some locations. Would definitely recommend this is a great way to get to know the downtown food scene and local must try places.

Andy was very professional, polite, articulate with a good sense of humor to make this tour fun, informative and worthwhile. Food vendors are top notch and always delicious ( this was our second tour ).
If you get the chance to spend a great 2 hours in Victoria we highly recommend this tour even if you are a local!!

This would be a good tour if you have extra time or are travelling alone, as it's a nice way to meet people from other parts of the country/world and learn some trivia about Victoria. However, it is not good value if you do not drink alcohol or like sweet desserts. The cost of over $70.00 per person does not fill you up for lunch as the samples given of each food item is small.

Hello, Thank you for taking the time to write a review. I’m sorry to hear that you did not find the tour to be of good value. This is not something we hear very often as there are 7 tastings and only 1 sweet tasting and 1 alcohol tasting. Overall it adds up to 1200-1400 calories, which should make you feel like you had a lunch out of the deal. However, the idea of a tasting tour is to try small bites of a variety of different places including sweets and alcohol. We do offer non-alcoholic beverages for those that don’t drink at that 1 stop. Nonetheless, I’m sad that the experience didn’t live up to your expectations. I hope the rest of your trip went well. All the best, Andy

This tour was a great introduction to the food scene and other interesting spots to visit. I would highly recommend it early in your trip because you will definitely want to go back and revisit some of the places you walked by or eat at the restaurants Andy recommends. As a passionate local, he has deep insider knowledge of his city and is rightly proud of all of it has to offer. Highly recommended!

We thoroughly enjoyed 'seeing' Victoria through our stomachs on the Victoria food tour. A very knowledgeable host coupled with a diversity of new and interesting food and drink made for a great outing. Highly recommend this tour to get acquainted with both the city and some of its history as well as some exceptionally delicious food.

From start to finish, this tour was a wonderful treat. I was a solo traveller looking for some history and good eats, Andy made sure of that from the moment I met with him and the group. He was welcoming, enthusiastic and fun! At every stop, he went out of his way to have chefs/owners speak with the group, he took care of our every need and constantly checked in to how we were liking everything. We got to try arancini balls, fish tacos, pirogies, matcha tea lemonade, and more! We were lucky to have a gorgeous sunny day but Andy has plans for the right samples in any weather. I would absolutely recommend taking this tour, you'll have a great time and leave with full minds and bellies!

Andy was an absolute pleasure and took us to some unique places that were delicious and varied in taste, origin, and history. The value for the amount and quality of the food was definitely worth it. I enjoyed every bite as an avid foodie. Victoria has the second most restaurants per capita in North America so this tour was an absolute must to partake in to take advantage of what the beautiful city has to offer. Andy’s support of the local family owned establishments and knowing that you are getting a worthy crash course in Victoria Food 101 makes this a wonderful tour worth the time and money. Thank you, Andy!

The Taste of Victoria Tour was informative, entertaining and delicious! At each of the stops we enjoyed amazing samples of the most wonderful food - everything from savory to sweet. Andy was the perfect host - sharing knowledge about the restaurants and his neighborhood, which he clearly loves. I would recommend this tour to anyone with a love of good food and an interest in history of the area.

Andy was a fantastic tour guide. He was personable and provided relevant information regarding the area, local sites, and vendors. His great rapport with the owners of the shops was evident and he clearly loves where he lives. The variety of eats (savoury, sweet, drinks) was well thought out and the portion sizes were perfect. You were not stuffed by the end of the tour, but not hungry either. There is no need to eat beforehand. You start at the Public Market and after a well paced 2 hour tour, you end at the harbour infront of the Empress Hotel.

We have taken several food tours and this was one of the best due to Andy and the food chosen. We went back to several of the places that we had visited on the tour. Highly recommend - do it early in your trip!
