I invited 5 other friends to join my husband and I on this tour of Gastown and we were rewarded with an excellent opportunity to learn a bit of history, make some new friends and enjoy the variety of foods offered. Great way to know the restaurants in the area - already have three new favourites to come back to. We live out in Surrey and didn't think there was a need to travel downtown to eat good food but now we know that is not true. My friends really enjoyed the tour as well and we all agreed to come back downtown and eat at the restaurants we toured. Gassy Jack's character was good and if you engage with him and the others you will find that it can an enjoyable experience. If you just stand there and not participate you may not find out how much fun it can be - what you put in is what you get out - you put in nothing you get nothing. We all laughed ate and drank and enjoyed. And yes, after the tour we went back to Steamworks for the beer and nachos!
