    I highly recommend this tour for people new to Vancouver. It showed us many places we had no idea existed that were absolutely delicious and 100% worth the price of the tour. My only suggestion is go on an empty stomach! My partner and I had a light breakfast beforehand, not

    Hi Logan, welcome to Vancouver and thanks for your 5-star review! We love introducing locals and travellers alike, to Vancouver's most-loved foodie districts, including Gastown and Granville Island. On both tours, there are infinite possibilities of where to bring guests. Here at Foodie Tours, we choose to showcase places that are 100% locally owned, original Vancouver concepts, with wicked good food that locals love. Of course, there's more to explore than what we can cover in 2-3 hours, which is why we created the Vancouver ChEAT Sheet, packed with neighbourhood guides, Vancouver's must-eats, local tips and delicious discounts. We hope to #EATtheMAP with you again sometime...until then, happy feasting!

    Hi lucyb37, Thank you for taking the time to leave us a glowing review of your experience on our Granville Island Market Tour. I am so thrilled to hear that you enjoyed all of the tastings and that you walked away with a full stomach! Oyama Sausage is always such a treat to visit - they make and carry over 400 products, which means there's always something new and exciting to try. And I agree, the honey dip donut at Lee's is heavenly...I'm so impressed that you were able to resist picking up an extra one for later! Thanks again for joining us on our foodie adventure around Canada's 2nd most visited destination - I hope that you will choose to eat with us again in the future!

    Hi Ambassador274426, Isn't that donut heavenly?? The 20+ Canadian tastings throughout the tour were hand-picked to showcase Granville Island's top artisan vendors, some of whom have been in business since the Public Market's inception in 1979! Thank you so much for your high praise and recommendation - I am so thrilled that you had a 5-star experience. All of our guides have the uncanny ability to make guests feel like they are grabbing food with a friend, and I'm so happy to hear that your time with Tracy was no exception. We are so grateful that you chose to include a Vancouver Foodie Tour on your trip, and hope that we will have the opportunity to wow you again in the future!
