What to Expect
Meet an improv comedian guide in the historic district of Gastown, then set out on foot as you hear some little-known stories about the neighborhood. Check out the Gastown Steam Clock—it really does run on steam power—as well as the ‘World’s Oldest Trading Company,’ and other local landmarks. The tasting menu varies to keep the experience fresh and fun, but favorites include local craft beer, organic ice cream, pulled-pork sandwiches, treats made with Canadian maple syrup, and a cheese cake that’s been voted the best in the city. Throughout the tour, your guide will keep up an energetic dialogue about Gastown, Vancouver, and local food. Your walking tour concludes at the original departure point.

Interesting tour of Gastown with a bit of history and folklore thrown in. We went to 9 different places but the tasting samples were very small at each one (eg: 1-2 bite samples). So don't go on an empty stomach or you'll be disappointed (and left hungry). The 2 alcoholic

Thank you for taking your time to write your feedback. We are sorry to hear you found the samples too small. The wine should be a 4oz so we will have to check into why this was not served. We value your feedback and please feel free to contact maria@tastevancouverfoodtours.com so we can get some more details. Thank you.
