Full description
This is not your average small bite sampling tour. Think of it as a progressive dinner where you dine your way through the historic Gastown district, Vancouver's most vibrant restaurant scene and Canada's cocktail capital. Expect award- winning restaurants, inventive dishes, eccentric personalities, and inspiring decor. Your adventure begins at a stylish brew pub for a local beer tasting with food pairing. Craft beer is not only a trend, it's a passion for many, including your well-versed guides. Enjoy 3 craft beers with signature appetizers that showcase West Coast flavors. The next stop is a lavish craft cocktail bar with old-world charm. Decked out in vests and ties, the expert barkeeps shake up classic cocktails while imparting knowledge on the art of imbibing. Time-honored canapés are served, each with a story of its own. Next, take a stroll through the neighborhood and become acquainted with the hottest restaurants and historical landmarks.  Along the way, learn about the quarter’s legends and secrets. Follow your guide into an inconspicuous, pebble-stone back alley where a hidden gem is tucked away from everyday tourists. There, you will enjoy 3 BC wines alongside local farm charcuterie and cheeses from an ever-changing chalkboard menu. Nearby BC farms produce award-winning meat and cheese products that cannot be missed. Then hop a few steps over to a modern, upscale Chinese dining lounge that embodies the area's cultural history.  Entice your tastebuds with innovative classics that push the envelope. Pair an Asian-inspired cocktail with intricate dishes for a truly unique experience.

We had an awesome time with a terrific guide Cassandra , as well as two other people , one from Germany and one from Austria. The five of us got along great and we learnt the history of the Gas Town area, had fantastic food an drink and it was as if we new each other for years. Well worth the money for my wife and I.

Gastown Food Tour Was A Gas! NPI...

My partner & I had a blast trying out local drinks and flavors. Surprisingly, most of our tour group was locally-based and we got along great, staying out well after the tour had ended and trying some new bars together. Angelique was a fun and exciting guide. All in all, the experience was well worth the money!

A relaxed, friendly, enjoyable way to experience Gastown

As a solo traveler on a stopover this tour was a great way to sample some amazing foods, wines, beers in the Gastown area with new people and a knowledgable/friendly local guide.
