Vancouver Foodie Tours Launches New Walking Food Tour:
The Best of Downtown Tour

Vancouver Foodie Tours Best of Downtown Tour

A Seafood and Multiculturalism Tour

Vancouver is exceptionally diverse – visible minorities represent 50% of the population. Paired with access to bountiful seafood and thriving local farms, this has bred a food culture that is uniquely Vancouver: multicultural, seafood-centric, and proudly Canadian.

Vancouver Foodie Tours’ newest offering, the Best of Downtown Tour, encompasses the city’s fresh, seasonal, and multicultural flavours with award-winning West Coast seafood, authentic Chinese dim sum, Italian gelato, and more.

Best of Downtown Tour - Boulevard

The 3-hour walking tour includes:

A multicultural progressive lunch

 Five best-in-class downtown establishments

Five seafood dishes
Smoked Clam Chowder, Mussels Escabeche, Abalone Steamed Buns & more 

Four craft beer, local wines, and cocktail pairings

An expert local guide
to explore downtown Vancouver’s history, architecture and waterfront vistas

The Best of Downtown Tour begins in the heart of downtown Vancouver, a 5-minute walk from most downtown hotels.

“We are delighted to have amazing restaurant partners on our Best of Downtown Tour – the list of accolades at these establishments is astounding. This is a VIP ticket to the foodie bliss Vancouver has to offer.”

– Michelle Ng, President & Founder of Vancouver Foodie Tours
