This was our second food tour while in Vancouver, and it was great also. Our guide was June, who did a superb job of keeping us all together, and making sure we could hear all she was telling us about the foods we were tasting, as well as some of the history of the Granville Public Market. The freshly made honey dipped doughnuts at the end were a highlight!! Great tour!!!

Our favourite place to visit in Vancouver - the food markets are simply divine and the tour was great way to familiarise yourself with the stalls. Our guide was enthusiastic and passionate about good food and we certainly got to taste some great food thanks to her. The tour was entertaining with highlights being terra bread must try the blueberry rolls and the donuts at Lees out of this world. We ended up visit the markets 4 more times for the food stopping again at the plans we sampled at on the tour and for the unique and interesting craft stalls.

This was a must do. The food tastings were great but the guide was so informative in sharing the history and workings of the Granville Island Market.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2016

We always love food tours. I recommend doing them early in your trip. They usually give you a good place to eat later. I love the history and details that the tour guides give you during the tour. The food is good and you don't have to wait in long lines to get your samples. The food tour also does not take up your whole day.
