Victoria Guided Food and History Tour

Andy our guide was knowledgeable, friendly, and accommodating. All the stops were spread out evenly along the route, which made the walk manageable for older folks. Make sure not to eat a large breakfast if you go on the early tour. Lots of good bites along the way to fill up on! Thanks again Andy for a swell jaunt down memory lane.

My husband and I came from Missouri and this was one of the best things we did on our entire trip. The food stops were amazing and the food was so delicious. We even went back for more after the tour. Andy was so fun and active. You can tell he loves what he does and has a bond with all the places we visit. We could do this tour again and enjoy it just as much. Highly recommend this tour to anyone visiting Victoria.

We weren’t sure what to expect when we signed up but we are so glad we did. Andy, our tour guide took us for (7) different tastings and all of them were great! We also got to learn a little about the history of each place we visited. Well worth the price
Great Guide, Great Tour

For Two hours we were entertained by our guide Andy and enjoyed some of Victoria's unique and distinctive food offerings. Each stop was a story about the chef and the food coupled with Victoria history as we walked from shop to shop. The food was excellent, and Andy's passion for food and his home city of Victoria made this one of our favorite tours.
Great Trip

This is a great way to spend two hours. Your guide Andy walks you around Victoria giving a lot of history at a nice pace. Very factual without being overwhelming. You stop at several places in different areas of the city to eat. The menu is broken up nicely between drinks, entrees and desserts. We were a group of 6 and all thoroughly enjoyed the trip.

Andy was a fantastic tour guide. We’ve been to Victoria many times and though we’d seen everything before, we hadn’t experienced the food as a local would. What a treat. If you like food tours and learning about local history - this is a must.
Victoria's food scene is Amazing!

Andy was an amazing tour guide. He knew the in's and out's of Victoria's food scene and he opened up our eyes to a lot of Victoria's history that we would not have learned about if it wasn't for the tour. The food vendors that participate in the tour are fantastic and the food we got to taste showed us how much pride this city takes in creating amazing local food that you can't experience anywhere else. We highly recommend this tour and look forward to coming back to Victoria Island.
