Vancouver Shore Excursion: Small-Group Gourmet Lunch Tour

Wine Tasting During Gourmet Lunch Tour

Discover Vancouver's diverse cityscape on this gourmet lunch shore excursion. Your foodie adventure begins in city center, a five-minute walk from Vancouver Port. In the afternoon, meet your friendly, food-loving guide for a tour of the area’s most acclaimed bistros, eateries, breweries and wine bars. Set off through the city’s eclectic downtown and hear about the colorful local food culture.

Your 3-hour excursion includes five courses of food spread over 12 hearty tastings – accompanied by delectable beer, sake, wine and sweets! (Please see itinerary below for full sample menu.) You’ll enjoy an array of staple dishes that create the pastiche of Vancouver’s cuisine such as award-winning dim sum at Kirin Chinese Restaurant, BBQ pulled pork sandwiches and craft beer at Ensemble Tap and agedashi tofu (Japanese-style fried tofu) with artisanal sake at ShuRaku Sake Bar and Bistro. As you sample a myriad of flavors from Asia, the Americas and beyond, you’ll quickly understand how Vancouver has earned its acclaim as a vibrant food destination. Cap off the meal at Bella Gelateria with small-batch gelato or sorbetto.

Throughout the tour, see behind-the-scenes kitchen action, stop for chance tastings of prize-winning BC wine, and get insider tips on which eateries to visit and which to avoid – and if you have other questions, just ask!
