Gastown’s Must-Do Activity

As the city’s #1 restaurant district and the birthplace of Vancouver, it’s no surprise that a walking food tour would be Gastown’s must-do activity.

Vancouver Foodie Tours designed the Gastronomic Gastown Tour as a historic city tour with exceptional tastings at local restaurants.

The tour demystifies Gastown’s cobblestone maze of restaurants, boutiques, and cocktail bars, to reveal what locals love about the neighbourhood. It’s history, booze, food, and a whole lot of Vancouver character.

The 3-hour walking tour includes:

An in-depth tour of Vancouver’s history

A progressive meal of Canadian comfort foods

Four uniquely Gastown restaurants
Skip the lines and sit down for Gastown’s signature dishes.

Four craft beer, wine and cocktail pairings

An expert local guide
Weave through Gastown’s foodie maze like a local!

The Gastronomic Gastown Tour begins in the heart of Gastown, a 10-15 minute walk from most downtown hotels.

“You can learn so much about a city from its history, so we’re really passionate about sharing Gastown’s story. This tour shows what makes Gastown unique – a casual, delicious, historic district, known for food and alive with entrepreneurial energy.”

 – Michelle Ng, President & Founder of Vancouver Foodie Tours
