Eat, walk, learn, and repeat! Over the course of the tour, you’ll journey from one tasting location to the next, learning interesting facts about Vancouver’s history, architecture and culture along the way. You’ll skip the lines at award-winning restaurants to indulge in show-stopping dishes and bites, and collect lots of recommendations and tips from your local guide.
Yes, absolutely! We place all of our food and beverage orders in advance, so it’s essential to book your ticket ahead of time. As such, we’re unable to accept walk-up guests or cash payments. Tickets can be purchased online up to 3-hours prior to your tour.
At the beginning of your trip! This is the #1 insight that we hear from our guests. Your expert Foodie Tour Guide will be able to share additional recommendations, local insight, and other must-do activities for the rest of your time in Vancouver!
We design all of our tours like a progressive meal – savoury to sweet, in thoughtfully-crafted portions. You’ll enjoy a series of tastings – some large, some bite-sized – but not anything you’ll need to hunker down for in one sitting. By the end of the tour experience, most guests are fully-satisfied, as if they had a meal!
For those with larger appetites, we recommend a light breakfast prior to our morning tours or a light lunch prior to our afternoon departures.
Our tastings and tasting locations are chosen by our dedicated team of foodies. (We love good food!) Each tours highlights places that we genuinely love, crave, and often visit with our own friends and family! We pay our tasting locations for the food and beverages featured on each tour, as we are valued partners in making memorable experiences for our guests.
How much walking is involved? Is it a fast-paced tour?
The Gastronomic Gastown Tour and Guilty Pleasures Gourmet Tour run for approximately 3 hours, and the World’s Best Food Truck Tour and Granville Island Market Tour run for approximately 2 hours. Participants can expect to be standing or walking for the majority of the time. We walk at a moderate pace.
Participants on the Gastronomic Gastown Tour and Guilty Pleasures Gourmet Tour can expect at least three resting locations for at least 30 minutes in total. There are street benches at some of the tasting locations on the World’s Best Food Truck Tour and we are outdoors for the entire tour. Most of the Granville Island Market Tour takes place indoors, and requires minimal walking, approximately 250 meters in total.
What if I have dietary restrictions or allergies?
We are able to offer delicious vegetarian and pescetarian tastings on all of our tours! As all our food and drink tastings are arranged in advance, simply use the prompt to specify your order when you purchase your ticket online.
Unfortunately, we are unable to guarantee tastings for other dietary restrictions or allergies such as gluten free/dairy free as not all of our tasting locations are able to offer alternatives. Please specify any severe allergies when making your booking and we will order alternative tastings where possible. In all cases, our expert tour guides will inform the group of the ingredients in each dish and leave it to the final discretion of each guest to partake. Please note, we cannot guarantee that cross-contamination may not occur due to the nature of our tasting locations.
Are there vegetarian options on the tour?
Yes! Simply fill out the prompt to specify your order when you purchase your ticket online, as all food and drink tastings are ordered in advance. We are able to provide delicious options for vegetarians and pescetarians on all of our tours!
Do your tours have anything to offer a native Vancouverite?
Many of Vancouver Foodie Tours attendees live right here in Vancouver! Vancouver locals participate to learn about the neighbourhoods and the city in which they live. Locals often marvel at how many new tastes and interesting facts they learn on our Foodie Tours!
What happens if it rains?
The tours are held rain or shine. In the rare circumstance that a tour is being cancelled due to inclement weather, we will notify customers directly. Please check the weather conditions for your day’s event and dress appropriately.
