Secret Food Tours Vancouver

Event description


Named the 4th most stylish neighbourhood in the world and located on Vancouver's beautiful waterfront. Gastown has the feel as if you are stepping into another continent entirely. This is due to its historic European style buildings and cobblestone streets. That's not all, as the area is home to endless entertainment and cultural attractions. These include a variety of trendy shops, bars and most importantly, restaurants.

By booking your Vancouver Food Tour, we will take you to the best restaurants that only the locals know, where you can taste the best dishes unique to the city. That's not all, as our guides are passionate about sharing the stories of what made this area into the national historic site of Canada that it is today. You will also learn more about Vancouver and Canadian culture and other essentials to do and great eats in the city!

This tour takes you down the main strip of Gastown, where you will be able to eat delicious foods that can only be found in Vancouver and Canada, all while feeling as if you are walking through a small town in Europe. Yet, you are still able to enjoy the fresh air and mountain views that Vancouver is so well known for. Our food tour is specifically designed to hit your taste buds in all the right places as we make our way through the town from place to place. On our Secret Food Tour in Vancouver, you will get to try many dishes that locals have come to love. They are made with fresh and local ingredients and are restaurants that you will find in no other city. We have created a relationship with these local companies which ensures top notch service.

You will have the pleasure of trying Vancouver's most beloved food: sushi! With the claim to be the "most Asian city in North America" and with its proximity to the sea, you have two guarantees of fresh and authentic sushi that can't be beat. You will then be introduced to one of Canada's most famous dishes, but, with a twist that makes it even tastier! Wash these foods down with a local craft beer or cider. Vancouver is also home to a renowned Craft beer and cider scene, and if you wish, we will show you some of the top local breweries. Then, we stop at a restaurant that serves groundbreaking vegetable based dishes which are so tasty you might just want to eat only vegetables from now on.

We make our way further down Gastown where you will be able to see the famous steam clock and if you are lucky, you will hear it chime and blow smoke! You will also learn more about some of the iconic buildings and the founder of the area before you cool down with some fresh, all natural ice cream. The tour concludes with the option of local drinks, overlooking the most beautiful and historic square in the city.

You will leave the tour feeling full and enriched in Canadian and local Vancouver culture. Our food tour is small and intimate to make sure that our guests receive a personal experience and you might just make a few new travel friends along the way! Our guides are local and are happy to answer any questions about other excursions and food options in the city.

Please note: the itinerary is subject to change, based on the locations' availability and weather. Our tour is different from all the food tours you may have done around the world. Our aim is to make the experience as authentic as possible, so you eat like a native Vancouverer. In Vancouver, it's not uncommon to eat on the run, but we are fortunate to be able to sit and enjoy most of what you will sample on the tour. Your professional guide will share with you a wealth of information, not only about the fare you will enjoy, but also about each venue and the secret history of this iconic Vancouver neighbourhood.
