Our tour guide Jason was amazing and very knowledgeable! When we first booked this experience I was a bit sceptical because of the price but after the tour I was amazed and I will definitely be recommending this tour to friends and family. It wasn’t just a food tasting tour it was an interesting informative experience about the whole of Vancouver not just Gastown. Coming from New Zealand we were quite unsure about the history of the place and left with an abundance of facts. It’s a must do while visiting the city!!

This was a great way to check out the great food and history of Gastown! I highly recommend for a first time visitor. Sean was super knowledgeable and very friendly! So many restaurants covered. All of which I would go back to. All of the food was fantastic!!

The experience was really great and all of the food was delicious. Learning more about Gas Town and some history of Vancouver is any additional bonus. We would have rated this a 4.5 star if possible, they only part that was sad was that we were told we could use our tour maps as a 10% off coupon at the places we stopped back at 3 of the places from the tour and only one location accepted it. We had two that we could use since two of use went on the tour.
