Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Make your way to the Gassy Jack Statue midafternoon for your 3-hour food walking tour. The amount of actual walking is moderate — about 30 minutes — as you’ll spend most of the time noshing on culinary delights.

Begin with a stroll through the Gastown on route to your first tasting. Admire historic architecture and hear a colorful narrative about Vancouver's humble beginnings, and soak in the atmosphere of this eclectic neighborhood.

Over the course of the tour, you’ll enjoy a complete progressive meal, ranging from savory to sweet. Sample pork belly crackling, tempura scotch eggs, parsnip fries, and British Columbia wine.

Then, wander into Gastown’s Blood Alley for grisly tales and another culinary delight, before wrapping up the tour at a popular dessert spot, for a sweet concoction that’s almost too pretty to eat . . . almost.

At the end of the tour, your guide will provide you with a foodie guide to Vancouver, complete with discounts at select restaurants.
