“Good food...interesting guests...delightful hosts!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 23, 2013

Who would have know that Vancouver "Foodie Tours" would have been so much fun? Well it is, even for a genuine Vancouverite.

Hosted by Michelle, our tour visited the gourmet food vendors around the downtown core and was supplemented with talk about the food scene in Vancouver. It was great fun.

So if you are from the Greater Vancouver area this is a fun and informative way to spend a few hours. It would also be a great option if you have limited time in Vancouver, a cruise stopover for instance. This is a great 2 hour introduction to Vancouver and its food scene.

Thanks to Michelle, Andrew y Manuela.

“Worlds Best Streets Eats Tour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 23, 2013

I had a wonderful time walking through the streets of Vancouver with Michelle. It was great to try the delightful food from the growing food carts amoung downtown Vancouver. She had great knowledge of Vancouver and the history if the food cart businesses in Vancouver. I would defiantly recommend this tour for locals or tourists who love food!

“Fantastic afternoon with amazing food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 22, 2013

I had such a fabulous and inspiring experience on the Guilty Pleasures Gourmet Food Tour. Our tour guide, Michelle, was friendly, informative, and passionate about food. For 3 hours, this tour is the perfect blend of eating, drinking (yup!) and hearing interesting facts about Vancouver's history, culinary scene, and architecture. I love that the tour had people from all over the world - it was so much fun to stroll through Vancouver with the group and hear about all the different perspectives and experiences. I'm from Vancouver and I found that the restaurants that we visited represent a really local and sincere "snapshot" of the incredible culinary scene that this city has to offer. From first-class dim sum and gelato to finger-licking pulled pork sandwiches, there were tasty delights and surprises to be had at every corner. I would highly recommend the tour for any age and any group size - it is such a fun and engaging experience to share. 5-stars!

“Awesome guides, incredible food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 18, 2013

Michelle and Andrew were fun, passionate, and well-informed, and their selection of food carts was excellent. All the choices were unique and memorable, and our guides' knowledge of the food / food cart business as well as Vancouver in general was impressive. My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and definitely recommend this tour!

“Great way to spend a cold wet afternoon”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 13, 2013

When visiting a city you can only try so much food, so a guided tour is an ideal way to try out several different cuisines in a short time.
The Guilty Pleasures tour gave a good selection of food, some interesting introductions from the hosts and some Vancouver commentary.
The tasty food and pleasant people made up for the cold conditions.
Well worth it.
