Discover Vancouver's diverse cityscape on this gourmet lunch shore excursion. Your foodie adventure begins in the city center, a 5-minute walk from Vancouver Port. In the afternoon, meet your guide for a tour of the area’s most acclaimed bistros, eateries, breweries and wine bars. Hear about the colorful local food culture as you set off through the city’s eclectic downtown.
Your excursion includes four courses of food spread over 12 hearty tastings, accompanied by local wines. (Please see the itinerary below for a full sample menu.) You’ll enjoy an array of staple dishes that create the pastiche of Vancouver’s cuisine, such as award-winning dim sum at Kirin Chinese Restaurant, local cheeses and macaron. As you sample flavors from the Americas, Asia and beyond, you’ll see why Vancouver has become a vibrant food destination. Top off the meal at Bella Gelateria with a scoop of delicious sorbetto or gelato.
Throughout the tour, stop for tastings of prize-winning BC wine, see behind-the-scenes action in the kitchen and get insider tips on which eateries to visit – and if you have other questions, just ask!
