We have done a food tour in Quebec City and in Europe and this rates right up there among the best!
Jul 2021
A group of six of us- several who were raised in Victoria - enjoyed our tour with Andy yesterday!
It was the Public Market on Douglas, China Town and the Inner Harbour.
We all learned so many things about the city that we didn't know and the tastings were a mix of sweet and savory- all excellent.
Andy the tour guide is professional, knowlegable, personable and just plain fun to learn history from!
And there was no pressure to buy things form the places we visited. However that said we did buy a few quality items.

Great time and amazing food
This was sooo much fun. My husband and I enjoyed Andy’s knowledge and upbeat attitude. The food was All SO good. Totally worth it. Would not recommend for small children under 14. We learned a lot of history and found some new favourite food places for sure.

So many hidden gems!
Jul 2021
We've visited Victoria many times, but even so we discovered so many great new gems on this tour. Andy was super friendly and knowledgeable, and we got to sample quite a variety of different food and beverages. It was such a fun way to spend the afternoon, and we returned to several of the tour stops the next day for more food! We loved it and would recommend it to anyone visiting Victoria!

A Modern Day Look Back with Treats!
Jul 2021
This tour was fantastic. The guide was knowledgable and tried hard to source local vendors and local ingredients which we all appreciated. The food was delicious and everything went very smoothly from start to finish. I saw a new side to Victoria because of Andy’s historical knowledge of the city.

Great tour! definitely recommend!
Jul 2021
I am a Victoria local, decided to do a bit of a staycation and do some of the touristy things I never get around to! Like this tour. Andy was informative, kind and funny, great tour leader! Good value for the money, walking is in short bursts and not very far. Washrooms along the way. I discovered a few local gems I had never tried!
