The food on the Granville Islad Tour was delishious, and Wes, our guide was very knowledgable about the eats and the area. It was fun to not only eat good food, but spend our time hearing a brief history of Granville Island and the vendors in the market. The market itself is very overwhelming, so it was beneficial to the overall experience to have a guide to show us around.

I'm a vegetarian, and didn't feel like I missed out at all. During the meat portion of the tour I had a Greek/Medataranian plate, and enjoyed every bite of it. Over all, great food and a great place to explore! Five out of five, would recommend!

The Guilty Pleasures Gourmet Tour is essentially a 3-hour tasting tour of five of Vancouver's finest food outlets that's popular with locals as well as visitors.

The venues and menus vary but our tour included the Kirin Restaurant for dim sum, Urban Fare (Shangri-La branch) for cheese and chocolate tasting, Italian Kitchen for their signature meatballs, Hubbub Sandwich Bliss for a pulled-pork creation that puts others to shame and Bella Gelateria for a truly delightful dessert. I believe vegetarian options are available if booked in advance.

Our guide Manuela was informative, enthusiastic and entertaining. She also gave us a useful leaflet listing other good places to eat, drink and shop for food in Vancouver plus discount vouchers.

Overall this was a great way to spend an afternoon. My only regret is not taking this tour sooner during my visit as I no longer have enough time left to revisit all of the excellent restaurants.

We recently had the Guilty Pleasures tour with Nadia and had a terrific time. There were 12 people in the group that day and we stopped at 5 locations for different tastes, including Kirin for great dim sum and Bella Gelateria for gelato. We returned to both later in the week on our own. Nadia was great, provided a lot of information and made the tour lots of fun. Highly recommended.

This was my first experience and it will be difficult to top - thanks to the amazing food and drinks we sampled and to our charming tour guide Wes. He was very personable and knowledgeable and added a great deal to the experience. We sampled many foods (breads, meats, cheeses, fruits, sweets as well as coffee and tea) but my favorite would have to be the fish cake from Edible Canada Bistro. Amazing flavour and beautiful presentation. This tour was well worth the price and I would highly recommend.

This tour is two hours (Food truck tour), a perfect amount of time so that you don't have to commit your whole day. Our tour guide Lisa was very nice and knowledgeable about the area. The samples sizes were pretty generous and the best part is when you are on the tour, you get to skip the line! Some of the trucks had lines that were pretty substantial. I recommend this to anyone and everyone! Even non-foodies would enjoy it.
