I really enjoyed the tour. Kate was a good guide, the food was wonderful and the district is very interesting. Good blend of old, new and relevant info from Kate and I hope the restaurants all have much success. I love the story behind the H.A.V.E. Cafe! What an inspiring idea!

What a great way to spend an afternoon, exploring an up-and-coming area of Vancouver. Our tour guide was outstanding - she had lots to say about the area and about the food establishments we visited. My sister and I live out of town and we went on the tour with a Vancouver local. The Local said she learned new things about Vancouver and will now frequent some of the places we visited.

We booked a food tour through Viator. After we booked and paid before we left home, we showed up at the appointed time. One of the chefs finally took pity on us and called the food tour company. They said they had not gotten the tour reservations. Since it was too late to schedule something for that day, they offered us a replacement tour the next morning for no additional charge.
The tour was great, but I will probably never attempt to book another tour through Viator

This was a weird tour. Food was good but the neighborhood was scarey. You pass a park filled with drug users and homeless. Not what you want to see on vacation.
