When you only have a limited time to get out a see a new city, you need to maximize your time. If you’re a foodie, you know you want to check out all the best restaurants, but sometimes there just isn’t enough time in the day. In Vancouver, one of the most beautiful cities in the world, known for amazing food, beautiful architecture and pedestrian friendly, a walking food tour is definitely in order.
Vancouver is not stranger to food tours. They’ve been around for years. But what’s cool about Vancouver’s food tour scene is that the operators change them up frequently and with the seasons, so that they are always fresh and new.
Vancouver Food Tours is Vancouver’s premier walking food tour company. They work with local restaurants, bars and eateries to come up with tours that showcase the best of Vancouver. Each guided tour will take you through a specific area of Vancouver and at each stop, gives you a taste of specific restaurants.
These tours are awesome because you get to sample four or five different restaurants in one evening, with experiences ranging from casual to semi-formal. Throughout the tour the guides point out historical and significant points of interest, so it’s like a two-in-one tour!
For locals, food tours are an awesome date night adventure. It’s a great way to get out, try something new, and to go on a unique date experience that you’ve probably never tried before.
Most recently Vancouver Food Tours has introduced the Modern Chinatown Tasting Tour. Chinatown is both a historic and significant location in downtown Vancouver, and an important part of the cultural-fabric of the modern-day city. The evolution of the area over the decades is incredible, especially as it transforms and changes, or in some cases stays exactly the same.
The new culintary tour has everything from Caribbean specialties, traditional sausage, signature dishes made with sustainable ingredients, and sweet desserts, all paired with cocktails, wine and beer.
The tours run from 4:15pm – 7:00pm, and are $105 CDN per person (plus GST). Each tour has 4-12 people. Private tours are available upon request, and itineraries are subject to change without notice.
