Loved this tour! Nadia was awesome and really gave us a lot of good information. The tastings were more than I thought they would be and were delicious!

Definitely would recommend this. We would do it again.

Nadia guided us on this tour. Great that it is restricted to a small group. Lots of history included.

Food selections for tastings were excellent. There are so many offerings in the market that visitors would struggle to absorb everything and would certainly miss out on the true gems.

Great tour with a very knowledgable guide who was fun and full of great tips. Loved the places we stopped at. The only thing that I would have changed was being able to stand in front of each of the storefronts but understood that with the crowds it made it difficult.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended January 2016

Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and it was very in depth for the length of time we had. The tour guide also helped us pick out a restaurant for dinner.

Very fun way to experience Granville Island and learn more about the local vendors. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable about the area, food and gave us great recommendations for local restaurants. I really liked how the first tasty was hearty and then followed with great bites - we definitely didn't leave hungry, but weren't over-stuffed. Definitely recommend.
