“Gastown Food Tour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 13, 2013

We had a wonderful time with tourguide Carlos. He took us to four different locations, and managed to balance our dietary needs extremely well. (Out of six, we had two pescatarians and two individuals who weren't drinking alcohol). The tour was excellent, and we were all stuffed and happy by the end of the evening. We'd happily take another tour with Carlos.

“Molsen Brewery Tour”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 29, 2013

It all started when we were given our reflective vests and special hearing devices to more easily hear our guide, Carlos, as we entered the fully functioning brewery. Carlos was an excellent guide and we had a great group of fun people. Since this was a brewery tour, we all knew we had something in common right away...a thirst for more knowledge about our favourite beverage and the obvious....looking forward to that tasting!
I had bought the tour as a Christmas gift for my beer drinking buddy, Marty, and he was telling everyone about it for days afterwards. Well worth every penny. I would recommend this tour to anyone, and have! Molsen's Brewery is a piece of Vancouver heritage that has only improved with age

“Good option for those with no food restrictions”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 21, 2013 via mobile

My friend and I did the Gastown tour while on a four-day vacation in Vancouver. We both had a great time and enjoyed spending a few hours with our guide Carlos and another young couple. It turned out to be a pretty intimately experience with only the five of us, which was great. However, since my friend is a pescaterian and does not drink alcohol, we felt that the value for the price wasn't there for her. We checked with the company ahead of time to see show such situation is handled and got assurance that they will take care of it. While they did a great job accommodating her food restrictions, there wasn't much they could do about alcohol. I think they should provide a different price point for those opting out of alcohol. I would definitely recommend this activity to those without any such restrictions though.

“Craft Beers n' Bites Tour--Great Evening”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 19, 2013

Our family went on the Craft Beer and Bites Tour with Carlos. Very enjoyable. The food and craft beers were wonderful. Our guide, Carlos, was knowledgeable and lots of fun. Our two college-aged sons had a blast. And I learned that a stout with a bit of licorice flavor goes incredibly well with a chocolate and cherry-sauced dessert. Who knew? Thanks for a great evening.

“Great food tour!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 13, 2013

My wife and I went on the Craft Beer and Bites tour with David. We had a great time exploring some of the cities bars and trying some different local beers. The food pairings were good and we got to try some things we've never had before. David was a great guide. He had a lot of interesting stories and you could definitely tell he enjoyed his job. I would highly recommend this tour if you are a fan of craft beers.
