“We actually spent a few hours in Gastown on our own before meeting Manuela for our tour, but after our Vancouver Foodie Tour, we realized how much we had missed on our own!! The food was delicious, the portions were perfect, and [our] guide through Gastown was so fun and informative. Our only regret was that we hadn’t done the tour earlier in our trip. By the end, you’ll have dozens of places you’ll want to go back and try!”
