The Gastronomic Gastown Tour is an official Canadian Signature Experience!

“Truly Authentic Canadian Experiences”

Vancouver Foodie Tours was officially designated as a member of the Canadian Signature Experiences collection by the Canadian Tourism Commission in Spring 2013. The CTC believes that the collection exemplifies a breadth of unique, authentic Canadian travel experiences that shows the world what Canada’s tourism brand is all about.

We are honoured to have two tours – the Gastronomic Gastown Tour and the Granville Island Market Tour (in partnership with Edible Canada) recognized as Canadian Signature Experiences.

Canadian Signature Experience - Vancouver Foodie Tours



Experience Gastown – Vancouver’s most-historic, food-centric district –  on a walking food tour filled with Canadian comfort foods, boozy cocktails, and engaging history! Navigate the cobblestone maze of restaurants, boutiques, and historic sites to meet Gastown’s passionate restauranteurs, taste their creations, and connect with Vancouver’s beginnings.

The tour takes a savvy stroll along Gastown’s cobblestone streets, weaving through five city blocks of hidden alleys and historic buildings to tell the stories of Vancouver’s great fire, the not-so-peaceful 1970’s protest, and the social evolution of the neighbourhood.

The tour visits four award-winning, locally-owned restaurants, paying homage to Gastown’s boozy roots with four beer, wine and cocktail pairings. The tour is a stress-free, all-inclusive progressive meal with a sweet ending that’s (almost) too pretty to eat!

Ultimate indulgence in Vancouver’s As Canada’s second-most visited destination, Granville Island is must-see for visitors to Vancouver. The area is home to over 300 artisan businesses, featuring the world-famous Public Market as its crown jewel. It’s a breathtaking sight for foodies – stacks of local fruit, fragrant pastries, artisan cheese shops, fresh pastas and more!

Weave through the Public Market like a local with an expert Foodie Tour Guide. Get to know the family businesses and skip the lines at the most-renowned shops to indulge in 20+ Canadian tastings. From fresh-baked sourdough to a platter of charcuterie from North America’s top meat-maker, seasonal British Columbia produce to the best honey-dipped donut in the world, every bite will dazzle your tastebuds.

Running year-round, the Granville Island Market Tour is a must-do experience for a true taste of Canada.
