The guide was fantastic. She got to know the small group and draw a connection to the food you were eating and where you were from ( in our groups case we had people from Australia, Denmark, and US (Portland and Seattle). Our guide was very knowledgeable about both the food and history of market. This was definitely a highlight of the weekend for us.

We were really fortunate to have Dina as our guide. She is a chef, so her knowledge of the food we were sampling was perfect. We sampled breakfast, bread, seafood and desserts! We had no idea of the variety of restaurants, shops and markets on the Island, and the many different foods available. If you are a history buff, this tour provides much of the history of Granville Island as well. We highly recommend this tour!

The group met at 10.30 outside The Edible Canada
building.
Jessie our host was very relaxed & welcoming. He had us introduce ourselves. We all appreciated his informative tour which encompassed the history of the island as well as the history behind some of the original market traders stalls.
The tastings were VERY good & no up selling!
There is ample opportunity to purchase after the tour has finished.
Definitely recommend this tour.

Dina was a very good guide. The market was managed skillfully with us able to have twenty tastings ! I had not realized there is a sit-down and a wine (or juice ) component. The group was good fun and the guide jelled us well ! I wish I had brought more family. A lovely intro to the market and its highlights ! I loved the doughnuts fresh and served through a secret window

Hi Pavlova, thank-you for taking the time to share your Granville Island Market Tour experience and leave us a 5-star review! Happy to hear you enjoyed kicking off the tour with a sit down tasting at Edible Canada Bistro (Canadian fish & chips with BC wine - YUM!) and skipping the lengthy line for those warm, melt-in-your-mouth, honey dipped donuts from Lee's. Always a show-stopper! This tour is very popular with families; we hope to meet yours sometime soon :)

Hi 962geraldine, I'm thrilled to hear that you had a great time eating your way through the busy Public Market! While we love having guests who are new to Vancouver join us on this foodie adventure, there are lots of exciting opportunities for Vancouverites as well. As a local of 13 years, I was surprised at how little I knew about Granville Island before joining Vancouver Foodie Tours! I always found the Marketplace to be a little daunting, but this tour gave me insider tips and I now have the confidence to weave my way through the chaos to shop for my favorite items from acclaimed vendors throughout the Market. Thank you so much for taking the time to leave us a 5-star review and for your recommendation of our tour - it was a pleasure hosting you, and we hope to eat with you again in the future!
