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.
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.
The perfect way to experience a crowded market when you can't visit every week.
Great tour.... Had a fun group and the tour leader was really inclusive and knowledgable. We would definitely go on another tour with this company.
Nadia was wonderful, and the tour was both educational and delicious! Highly recommended.
Andrew was fantastic
I only wish I had done this tour at the beginning of our trip so we could have spent more time there
This tour is a must and try to get Andrew!!!!
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.
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.
It was fabulous and very worth while. We LOVED it. The people were nice....food was great.....leader very knowledgeable .
This tour was worth every penny we spent to book it. We got a good look and had some great tastings during our tour. It enabled us to navigate back to the places we wanted to purchase items without any hassle. I would recommend this tour as one of the best for the money.
Nadia was just outstanding. Truly a world class chef herself, her insights and knowledge she shared with us will make us better cooks. Food was excellent. The donuts at the end were to die for. Would love to have her email address since we booked through Viator. She said it was oaky.
My wife and I finished our holiday in Canada with the Granville Market Food Tour. Nadia, our tour guide, was simply brilliant - an expert in her field, her knowledge on each vender/restaurant and breadth of general food understanding was very impressive. In terms of the tastings, you get a lot of them we were stuffed - and we have fairly formidable appetites. There were too many culinary highlights to list, but Lee's Doughnuts were life-changingly good.
A must for any foodie in Vancouver
An excellent way to experience the Graville Island Public Market. The tastings are well selected and sequenced to provide a complete eating experience of the best the market has to offer. Our guide/host was very personable, pleasantly enthusiastic, and most importantly knowledgeable about the food, the vendors, and the market. She managed our diverse group of fourteen effortlessly and was receptive to each person's questions and interest. An outstanding and enjoyable way to make the most of a visit to the market.
We brought our two young adult grandchildren with us on this tour and we had the best time. It was especially fun for our granddaughter who is GED intolerant. There was such a great variety of new things that she was like a kid in a candy store. After the wonderful tour with Nadia we spent several more hours there shopping and enjoying the ambience and took a variety of items mostly from the vendors we had been to in the morning back to our hotel for dinner. Thanks for such a great time!
Very well done. Worth putting high on your Vancouver to do list. Johanna was an excellent guide.
We love Manuela!!! She is lovely, considerate, knowledgeable, entertaining and provided great suggestions for restaurants in Vancouver. However, we feel that she should be allowed to taste some of the foods with us!
This was a great way to get acquainted with Granville Island, meet interesting people, and sample delicious local foods. Our tour guide, Emmanuella, was informative, engaging, and cheerful. We had a fun experience and will highly recommend it to friends.
This was a great tour and a great tour guide, Nadia! She was passionate and energetic about the food and was knowledgeable about the vendors and their products. I'm a professional cook too, so when I asked her about her cooking background she has list of impressive places that she has trained at. She also had a lot of good recommendations about local places to eat. I recommended her and the tour to other friends who were going to Vancouver.
One of the best food tours ever. Nadia was wonderful. A knowledgeable ball of energy. Would highly recommend!
