Splendid way to spend a few hours in the afternoon. Our host Lydia was very knowledgeable and the tour is well structured taking us from Dim Sum, to some cheese, meats, fish and then macaroons and finally ice cream to finish off the day. All the food served was of excellent quality and some great locations. Thoroughly recommend.

Lydia was an amazing tour guide. She was polite, engaging, and very knowledgeable. We visited a good group of restaurants that gave us a well rounded view of what the city has to offer. The food was delicious, diverse, and plentiful. My favorite was The Boulevard Restaurant. The best clam chowder I have ever had! Lydia gave us some city history as we strolled up and down the streets of the city. Lydia made our day very special. I would do this tour again if I were to visit. Very well organized tour.

this is an amazing tour!! I highly recommend taking this tour on your first day in Vancouver so you will have extensive information about the restaurant scene in Vancouver. We loved all the tastings in multiple settings. Nadia is a fabulous tour guide who is a chef and extremely knowledgeable about the city, restaurants and food in general. The small group lends itself to meeting and talking to the other foodies - adds to the fun!
