Delicious experience weaving our way around Granville Island's many offerings and sampling high quality foods. Nadia was a knowledgable leader, giving a short background/history of foods and vendors. Later I revisited places and used discounts we were given.
A unique way to visit a fun and memorable place. Our guide was brilliant, many thanks
Tracy was our hostess and she provided us with a wonderful experience on Granville Island. We highly recommend this tour with Tracy.

We booked the small-group Granville Public Market Foodie Tour for our last day in Vancouver. It was outstanding! Our guide, Tracy, did a nice job of introductions within the group and quickly got our tour underway. She was fun and shared information about the market and what we were tasting. She also did a nice job of moving us through the crowded market and conducted our tastings in quieter areas.
Now about the tastings: We had full-portion samples of a veggie plate, BC rede or white wine, coffee, charcuterie meats, cheeses, breads, in-season cherries, iced tea lemonade, hot fresh doughnuts, maple syrup and chocolate. Come hungry, leave full. Plus they provide discount coupons for purchases at some of the vendors visited and a free refill on the lemonade if you return after the tour. Great deal! Great time!
It was a wondeful tour! I would do another one in a minute. Miguel Alzugaray was our guide this day and he was welcoming and knowledgeable with a great sense of humor.
The tour was efficient and informative. I am a food tour guide in Baltimore, MD and Miguel is at the top of his class!
I went on one of the Granville Island Market Tours about a month ago -- and I had a great time!
Miguel, our tour guide, was super-friendly and informative. All you need to do is to show up hungry: they'll take it from there. You'll try everything from artisan bread to charcuterie, to fresh, local fruits to sweet treats. One of the last stops was a doughnut from Lee's -- delightful!
After the tour, Miguel was even kind enough to make restaurant recommendations. And I got an email from Vancouver Foodie Tours for follow-up that was personalized. They're obviously very dedicated to customer care.
The only thing that I would recommend that I haven't read in the reviews is to bring a water bottle to stay hydrated. The market has water fountains and refilling stations for water bottles.
All in all, this is a great way to get familiar with Granville Island Market and find out more about Vancouver. When I'm back I'll definitely try another tour with VFT.
Definitely recommend this tour, our guide Lydia was awesome, and we were certainly full from the delicious food afterwards there were about 8 stops and some 20 tastings.
Wonderful time. Great variety of tastings and wonderful guide who was passionate about food.
We had a great time on this tour it was small, informative, and fun. Our tour guide, Lisa, connected with each of us and did a good job of building a sense of togetherness in the group. Her information was interesting both about the market as a whole and each of the vendors we visited. The food stops were perfect and the sequencing of them made sense. We wanted to do another tour with her before we left town but she did not have one the next day. Our lose.
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!!!
Great way to spend a couple of hours. Nadia our guide was very knowledgeable and made the tour informative and fun. We had a good variety of tastings , sweet and savoury. Highly recommended.
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!!!!
