You’ll experience the vibrant culture and history of the area, while savouring a cornucopia of fine foods – from local cheeses and top-quality charcuterie to sourdough bread, to melt-in-your-mouth donuts, and more!

Why people love this tour

“The tastings offered with Vancouver Foodie Tours all happen in perfect sequence. What you taste one moment will be perfectly complimented by the next from beginning to end. The food tour takes an arc, like a well told story, where you begin with the mild flavours that subtly wake you up with potato hash, strong coffee and delicious bread. But then, the action rises and you are set off on a course filled with aged cheddar, salty prosciutto and peppery chai tea.” – thewanderfulltraveler.com

“We took the Granville Island tour and loved it. Although we have been to the public market dozens of times, all the shops sort of blurred together until this tour. Our tour guide introduced us to shops owned by people who are passionate about food…  Now when we go to the market, we will know where to buy the best stuff!” – Daycyn, New Mexico

If you have a Dietary Restriction…

Let us know! We order all tastings in advance, so please specify your order when you purchase your tickets online. We can provide delicious options for:

  • Vegetarians
  • Pescatarians (those who do not eat meat, except seafood)

We unfortunately cannot cater to any other dietary restrictions, as there is not always a “next-best” option at our tasting locations. If possible, we encourage you to try everything on the tour as we have selected tastings that best exemplify the restaurants and food shops we feature!
