 Give the Gift of Local Fare for the Holidays

New foodie offerings provide a heaping helping of seasonal fun

 
Vancouver, B.C.(November 12, 2014) – One of the city’s most unique tourism experiences is giving locavores some delicious ways to get into the holiday spirit offering Holiday parties with a twist and giving the gift of ‘delicious memories.’

Vancouver Foodie Tours is offering up a heaping serving of seasonal fare and new ways for visitors and locals to taste their way through the city. Food-lovers across the globe can now give the gift of ‘delicious memories’ with gift certificates for each of Vancouver Foodie tours; including Granville Island Market Tour (available year-round), Guilty Pleasures Gourmet Tour (available year-round) and the World’s Best Food Truck Tour (available April-November).
New this year, Vancouver Foodie Tours offers a little something different for hosts searching for that unique Holiday Party location. Instead of a traditional dinner or cocktail hour, celebrate Christmas with a Private Vancouver Foodie Tour. Tour-goers get a savoury sampling of the city’s culinary elite, learn the stories behind the dishes and get an education on how the ingredients are sourced.

 

All of Vancouver Foodie Tours serve up gastronomic delights and a smorgasbord of memories for friends and families. The three tours currently hold the title as one of the top foodie things to do in Vancouver, and offer something to titillate every taste bud.

On the Granville Island Market tour, recognized by the Canadian Tourism Commission as one of Canada’s most unique tourism

experiences, guests enjoy a cornucopia of fine foods from independent farmers and food artisans throughout Vancouver and beyond, from Gulf Island Chowder and cheeses to locally made charcuterie, melt-in-your-mouth donuts, to world-class coffee and chai.

Refined palettes hankering for a gourmet experience can partake in the Guilty Pleasures Gourmet Tour. Guests savour award-winning dim sum, sample pasta from the city’s most popular Italian restaurant, and end on a sweet note with Bella Gelateria, voted the world’s best gelato.For more information, please visit foodietours.ca or call (604) 295-8844.
